Parents & carers may remember our big focus on E-Safety as part of our Safer Internet Week a few weeks ago. During that week, we concentrated on alerting our children to how great the internet can be, but also to its potential hazards! As part of this drive we are fortunate enough to be able to host a BT ‘Right Click: Internet Safety Matters’ workshop for the parents of Y5 & Y6 children this Tuesday (21st March) at 3:30- 4:30pm in the Y4 classroom. The workshop will bring together Unicef UK’s Child Rights expertise with BT’s technological know-how in order to provide the information that parents & children need to navigate the risks and embrace the benefits that technology brings. If your child is not in Y5 & Y6, but you would like to find our more about keeping your child safe online, then please visit the TASS website (For Parents > Safety > ESafety) & read our Top Tips for Safe Use of Social Media booklet.
Science Week was fantastic & began with an assembly & workshops delivered by the scientist, Mick Rolley! He certainly inspired our children to think about Science in a new way & to consider becoming scientists in the future! Our Top TASS Scientists were announced on Friday as part of the Celebration Assembly & included the following children: Henry Warham (FS2), Bronwyn Shaw (Y1), Kiu Lau (Y2), Ewan Cuckney (Y3), Harrison Corrin (Y4), Connie Tomkinson (Y5) & Charlie Walker (Y6). Each child won a ‘Horrible Science’ gift box to try out activities at home! Well done to everyone & thank you to Mrs Soar for organising such a great week!
The TASS Governing Body will be meeting tonight (20.3.17) in the school hall for their full business meeting. If you would like to find out more about our governors & the work that they do, then please visit our website page or see the display in the school entrance.
World Water Day & Red Nose Day
This week is World Water Day & Red Nose Day & we are asking children to wear blue on Wednesday & wear red on Friday (Thursday is just normal)! Our Rights Respecters decided on wearing blue for World Water Day on Wednesday (22nd March) & the School Council decided on wearing red on Friday (24th March) with both days to have a separate 50p donation to go to Water Aid & the BBC Red Nose Day Fund. In addition, children can bring in their favourite joke to read out in class on the Friday & the ‘best in class’ winner will then be able to read it out the whole school as part of our Celebration Assembly for a Red Nose Day balloon! We look forward to having a great laugh & raising lots of money for these excellent causes! Thank you in advance for encouraging our children in their endeavours!
Y4 Boys’ Bun & Bric-a-Brac Sale
A group of our Y4 boys have taken it upon themselves to hold a Bun & Bric-a-brac sale this coming THURSDAY (23rd March) in aid of the British Red Cross. This is following their presentation during last Friday’s Celebration Assembly. The group includes: Harrison Corrin, Guy Eckersley, Jesse Drought, Hugo Deeks, Daniel Eames, Samuel Bennett & Jacob Parr. Please send children in with money buy in order to raise money for this great cause. Thank you!

Mum’s the Word!
Parents & carers are of course aware that Mrs Keen is expecting a baby in June, but now we can also announce further baby blessings! Both Mrs Scarpello & Mrs Underwood are expecting babies & are due to give birth in August! Governors are in the process of arranging cover for each maternity leave & announcements will be made in due course. Congratulations & every blessing to our blooming mums to be!
