Unfortunately the national news today is one of sadness and disbelief for the people caught up in the terrible events in London yesterday. There were various groups of school children visiting the Houses of Parliament and walking around taking in the sights - our thoughts are with everyone affected by yesterday's events.
Here at Merefield we are looking forward to our Easter Showcase Events next week - this is a lovely opportunity for parents to come into school to share and celebrate with us all the wonderful learning that every pupil has achieved so far this year. With regards to the Easter Holidays I have been told we may be getting a visit from a special Easter character next Friday but I can say no more at the moment!! Speaking of characters this term the topic has been Super Heroes and the other Friday we were very lucky to get a visit from Spiderman himself!! The pupils absolutely loved his acrobatics!
My last blog was just before our annual residential to Center Parcs - as always this was a wonderful week. The weather was very kind, the pupils who attended were amazing - an absolute credit to their families - and the staff went above and beyond as always. I always come back from these experiences completely in awe of our wonderful staff - nothing is ever too much trouble and the pupils could not be better cared for.
World Book Day took place on March 2nd - this event just gets better and better each year! The theme this year was Pirates and there were various activities around school for everyone to enjoy! Again many thanks to all the staff who organised everything - especially Jess!
I have just taken round prospective new parents for September - I always love walking around school as there is always such exciting activities in each and every classroom. Comments from visitors always include how warm and welcoming everyone in school is - pupils are proud of their work and love showing it off!
Hope to see many parents next week at the Easter Showcases but if not I hope everyone has a very happy Easter!
