As mentioned in last week’s newsletter, Foundation and Year 1 had a lovely day last week celebrating Diwali and learning about what it means. There were some beautiful outfits as well as some delicious food, kindly provided by children’s family members. Thank you to all those who contributed and joined in to celebrate the day.
Caroline Haslett Assembly
On Tuesday we had a visit from John and David who are part of the Three Bridges Forum. The Forum is marking women’s suffrage centenary year by planning and seeking support for a permanent memorial to Caroline Haslett. They gave a wonderful assembly and told the children all about who Caroline Haslett was and all the things she invented. For further information on Caroline Haslett, have a look at:
Many thanks to everyone who kindly donated to the Food Bank. They collected the items on Wednesday and had enough to fill the van. This will make a huge difference to many families so thank you for your generosity.

On Sunday 19th November, a group of our children entered the Junior Just Dance Waltz and Samba competition. They danced beautifully and were an absolute credit to Caroline Haslett. They put so much time and effort into their rehearsals which really paid off.
