The bulbs are popping up and the sun is starting to sparkle through the clouds. Here at school, it’s a time for looking forward. As we dream of warmer days to come, it is also a time to use all of the wonderful learning that has taken place so far, applying all of our new knowledge to the challenges that lie ahead. We can’t wait!
All of our teachers have been busy, finalising their plans to make this half term’s curriculum come to life in an exciting and interactive way. In addition to this, they have organised a variety of events and activities to keep us all on our toes. Please check the spring term calendar for dates and times.
Events involving parents are high on our list during this half term. Coming up soon is a Digital Safety and Writing Information evening. The event plans to be interesting and informative with a Writing element which will enable parents to wander through the school, exploring and learning about writing development at each age. Parents Evenings take place in early March and the online booking system will be open from Monday 19 February. Mrs Langham is looking forward to meeting you all at our ‘Open Swim’ event and Year One are all keen to demonstrate their sporting prowess at Downsend School, taking part in the Pre-Preps Sports afternoon. We do hope you will be able to join us for these wonderful events.
Our Easter celebrations will complete this term with a fabulous Easter hat competition and we must not forget an egg hunt. I hope the Easter Bunny is ready!
