Odd Socks Day is an annual awareness-raising event that serves as a reminder that being different is something to be proud of and launches Anti-Bullying Week.  In wearing mismatched socks for the day, we celebrate diversity and promote inclusion.

Thank you and well done to the pupils, parents, grandparents, staff and volunteers who gave their time on Sunday to represent the school at the Remembrance Service at Norton Church or elsewhere.  It was good to see the school represented alongside other groups from the village in remembering those who have lost their lives defending our freedoms.

Continuing with their project ‘Marvellous Machines’, pupils in Willow Class looked at the inner workings of different machines.  Birch have been thinking about how to stay safe in the home.  I have been impressed with how Hazel Class are getting to grips with adding and subtracting bigger numbers.  Meanwhile, Rowan are building up their historical narrative writing and the effect that techniques like similes have on their readers such as ‘falling shrapnel like hailstones’.

Finally, well done and thank you to Sarah Osborne who has become a parent governor.  Please see the attached introductory message from Sarah.

Have a great week.  Mr Caswell
