There will be a Speech and Language Coffee Morning on Wednesday 25th March in the courtyard between 9.00am—11.00am. You should have received a leaflet with more  information. Do drop in if you can and meet the team.

We have a new speech and language therapist, called Laura, starting on 20th April to replace Peter Berrill. The new therapist will be working with children in Willow, Lilac and Ash Classes

This week we have been taking part in Shakespeare Week—all of the children have been acting out scenes and reading or listening to the stories and plays. Pictures to follow next week.

We have sent home raffle tickets for the school summer fair. Please sell as many as you can to help raise funds for the Friends of Manor Green. We have more tickets in the office if you sell out. The Fair will be on Saturday 27th June. Due to the building work we will not be able to use the field this year. This will be on opportunity to try out some new ideas and a new format for the fair.

Easter Eggs! We still need more—especially the small crème egg size. Please send some in if you possibly can. Thank you.

Please remember we are a nut free school, this means no nuts, or nut products, for children, staff, parents and visitors anywhere on the school premises.

We have had a confirmed case of scarlet fever in school. Symptoms include general cold symptoms, nausea and vomiting, followed by a scarlet pin-prick rash that feels like sandpaper. Scarlet fever is a notifiable disease – if you suspect your child has scarlet fever you need to have it confirmed by your GP, and then notify Annie, our school nurse.

Lost Property – we have a large amount of lost property – including several coats – anything unclaimed by the end of next week will be given to charity
