World Book Day
The next class assembly will be Year 3 and will take place on Friday 9th March at 9:10am in the hall. Year 3 parents and friends are invited to attend.
World Book Day
On Tuesday 6th March we celebrated World Book Day at school and the children dressed as characters from their favourite books. What a fantastic day of celebrating literacy and the gift of books!
Bee a Reader – The Great Ursuline Book Race
The Great Ursuline Book Race concluded yesterday on World Book day! The top three were:
3rd – Early Years – 48 completed Book Reviews
2nd – Year 2 – 51 completed Book reviews
1st – Year 6 – 52 completed Book reviews
KS1 and KS2 winners will receive a trip to Ilford library and a story session with the librarians. Well done to everyone who took the time to complete the book reviews.
Scholastic Book Fair
The book fair will now arrive Thursday 8th March and will be here until Wednesday 14th March in the dining Hall from 3.30 – 4.15pm every evening.
Father Rob will be in school today, 7th March, to hear confession from those children who have made their first reconciliation. Further preparation and information has been given to the children by Mrs Pereira, our RE coordinator.
Stevenson’s, our school outfitters, will be in school on Thursday 5th April (during holidays) from 3pm until 5pm in the Prep Hall. As the children return to school from the Easter break in summer uniform, this will give you the opportunity to purchase what is needed and try out different sizes.
Signing Out After School Club
Please remember to sign your children out when collecting them from the after school club. It is very important to write the time that you have collected your child so that the after school club staff are able to keep an accurate record of pupils present. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
Congratulations to Year 3 for no absences last week. Unfortunately, there were no classes this week with no lates. Hopefully this week we will have even more classes with no absences and no lates.
