The 29th February 2024 was a leap year day.  As this only comes around every four years, our Year R, 1 and 2 pupils filled up a time capsule including measurements of themselves.  The capsule will be opened on the next leap year day, 29th February 2028! 

Then on the 1st March, St David’s Day, we celebrated our first day as West Chinnock Church School as we joined the Bath and Wells Academy .  This was marked by an assembly attended by pupils, staff, governors, parents and a representative from the Trust central team.  Pupils were excited to receive our Trust Bear, which each of the 42 schools in the Trust have. 

The week before last, Reception Pupils enjoyed their first visit to Carymoor Environmental Centre in a fun-packed day of activities based around The Three Little Pigs. The yet to be named Trust Bear will attend school events and trips and is looking forward to going to Tiverton Museum as Year 1 and 2 pupils go back in time to experience life as Victorian children for their History project School Days.  There has been some excellent writing in Oak Class as pupils consider the best way to present facts on either the skeletal or circulatory system.  Pupils and staff also had a recap on handwashing and learnt about the most effective methods for keeping hands clean and all of us healthy!

Thank you to the PFA and helpers who organised a successful Bedtime reading event on Friday - a very special West Chinnock tradition.  Keep an eye on the upcoming dates below.  There is lots happening over the next couple of weeks leading up to Easter.  This week we have Cross Country, Panto and World Book Day.      Have a successful week.  Mr Caswell
