1.  Parent consultations -  bookings are being taken 6th and 7th March.  As before, pupils will be asked to attend for the first 5 minutes to present their updated portfolios.Raising money for the RNLI - we need books!   Following a fantastic personalised visit to the Whitstable RNLI, we have said that we would raise some money for the lifeboats.   I was thinking we could keep a box of books out for sale for parents/children lower down in the school to buy.    If you have some books that are in relatively good condition, that others may read and you are willing to give away, please bring them in.   

2.  Number Crunch Club - I still have lots of place available - if you have not signed up, please do so.  All comers are welcome. The sessions are helping to supplement (in a fun way) the learning we are doing in class.  If your child has any 'gaps' in their understanding, they should come along.  It finishes at 4.15pm.  Biscuits definitely feature :)
