I trust that everyone is having a good weekend – despite the rain today.
This past week has been a quiet one in school. We said goodbye to Marie a STA who has been at The Redway for a very long time and has led some fantastic yoga sessions with a variety of pupils. Marie has now has retired to embark on some exciting adventures. We will definitely miss her, but wish her all the very best for the future.
Peter led the assembly on Wednesday – all about Chinese New Year. Pupils made Chinese lanterns, wrote class wishes to go on the ‘wish’ tree in the sun room, set off party poppers, explored the feel of wet noodles and generally had a fun time with their learning.
Thanks to Emily’s Star for coming along to our parents support group meeting, we appreciated your input and also the contributions that you are making to the school. We would encourage as many parents as possible to come along to future meetings as they will be informative as well as giving you time to meet and chat with other parents / carers. Sam Lazard aims to publish the dates of these as soon as possible, and they will of course be on our school website.
Next week is our MFL focus week – as you are aware based around Greece and Greek. I know that classes have some interesting activities planned (as well as food tasting for those for whom it is appropriate.) There will be some interesting photographs I’m sure.
Please remember that we break up for the February half term holiday next week on the 15th. Pupils return to school on Monday February 25th.
