SCHOOLS STONHAM ASPAL CEVAP SCHOOL It seems hard to believe that we are almost at the end of the first half of the spring term. The stormy weather and the road works have been rather challenging, but the days are slowly getting lighter which is much appreciated. Back on Thursday, January 11, most of the school went off to see the pantomime Red Riding Hood. The children were fabulous and everyone enjoyed the experience: oh yes we did! Well done to one and all. This half term Class R have used their topic of Frozen to create ‘Elsa’ castles which are on display near the hall. Classes One and Two have shared with the whole school the spaceships that they designed and created in our celebration assembly. Their spaceships were amazing with very well thought out designs. Classes Three and Four have used their topic about Rainforest to inspire their writing, for example producing non-chronological accounts about what rainforest animals eat, designing their own miniature rainforest, and creating amazing backdrops for their rainforest displays. Class Five are busy writing persuasive letters to me about a range of topics which I am looking forward to reading! Class Six are working extremely hard to make sure they can do their best in their SATS in May, as well as exploring Evolution and Inheritance for their topic. On Wednesday, January 31, we took a team of five children from Years 5 and 6 to play in a hockey tournament at Hartismere High School. It was a very chilly afternoon, although the sun did appear briefly. The children played four matches and while we didn’t get through to the next round, all the children played extremely well, especially as most were new to hockey. Goals were scored and there was excellent defending as well. Huge congratulations go to the whole team; you made me very proud. A big thank you also goes to Mrs Daynes for running the Years 5 and 6 Hockey Club and for helping with the tournament. If you would like to know more, our website is a good source of information, or contact the office to arrange to arrange a visit.

HENLEY PRE-SCHOOL The pre-school is keeping very busy this term. In January we had a visit from a fireman, this month the community police will be coming to see the children and a spring trip is planned in April to visit Easton Farm Park. We will also be celebrating Valentine’s Day, Chinese New Year and Mother’s Day. Many thanks to everyone who supported and sponsored our quiz and curry night which raised a staggering £1,100 for the pre-school. Our sessions are currently full, but we will have spaces for those children who wish to start in September 2018 and would encourage parents/carers to apply as soon as possible. For further information please call 01473 833848 during session time (9am3pm) or email our manager, Bridget Wyatt; Bridget and the team
