I can’t believe how much we’ve managed to do this week and am relieved that we’ve made it to the weekend!

Sincere thanks to FoS for organising last night’s Easter Bingo which raised the amazing total of £610 for school. It was a great night and lots of people went home with bags full of chocolate and Easter themed goodies.

I will be unveiling some of our plans to drastically improve attendance rates next week as well as telling you more about the Easter story in assembly. We had originally planned to go to church next Wednesday but for a variety of reasons have decided to hold our Easter Service in school instead and I am pleased that the Assembly Team will be in school to help us celebrate the occasion.

I will be going to QEGS on Monday for a meeting and am looking forward to showing representatives from the Windsor Academy around school on Tuesday to share our experiences of being part of QEGSMAT. A group of Y6 pupils will be meeting with the visitors and they have lots of ideas and thoughts they want to share with them.

Miss Smith will be encouraging everyone to take part in the Sport Relief Mile on Wednesday morning. This involves completing 16 laps of the playground and if you would like to bring a £1 contribution for the Sport relief charity you will be warmly encouraged to do so.

Wednesday is also the date for our annual Easter bonnet parade and we will assemble on the playground at 2.40pm (weather permitting) to admire the amazing creations. There will be prizes for each year group so make sure you enter as you’ve got to be in it to win it!

Mrs Staddon will be announcing the latest batch of Times Tables Tycoons in assembly on Thursday whilst Mrs Cormack is looking forward to handing out lots of reading award certificates. Mrs Parker is also getting certificates ready for those children with 100% attendance and we will be giving out both bronze and silver wristbands.

Well done to Miners for another amazing victory in the House Point race; to Polar Bears for winning Oscar in the reading challenge with a score of 100% and to Snow Leopards for taking the lead in the attendance race to earn the privilege of looking after Churchill.

Just before I sign off I’d like to say thank you to everyone for working hard this term but to remind you to stay focused and positive and aim high at all times. Mrs Moore, Mrs Martin and Mrs Key all commented on the high standard of work on display and it was evident that growth mind-set work has resulted in positive attitudes. However, we know that we are still on our Springfield roller coaster journey of improvement and we won’t be happy until we can all loop the loop!

Take care and have a great weekend,

Mrs Hughes

Blog Box question: how many laps of the playground are equivalent to a mile?
