Posted in Whole school news on Friday, 12th March 2021

Welcome back everyone!

It has been fantastic to have all the children back in school this week and have our Mayflower family all back together again. The children have really enjoyed being back with their teachers and friends and have done some amazing work this week. We have also had a couple of children who are new to school starting with us this week and they have settled in really well too. We hope they will enjoy their time here at Mayflower.

School Milk

There was a delay in the school milk being delivered at the beginning of this week, meaning that the children are a day behind in receiving their milk. We will ensure that all children on the milk lists will receive 5 cartons of milk per week. This may mean that we will need to double up on some days and the children may therefore bring a carton of milk home with them, but please rest assured they will receive all the milk they are entitled to. 

Reminder of PE days

The PE days for each class are the same as they were before Christmas. As a reminder, the children will have PE on the following days:

Reception - Monday

Year 1/2A Mrs Davies - Tuesday

Year 1/2B Miss Taylor - Wednesday

Year 1/2C Miss Cruickshanks - Thursday

Year 3/4A Miss Walsham - Monday

Year 3/4B Mrs Pickersgill - Tuesday

Year 5/6A Mrs Parkes - Thursday

Year 5/6B Mrs Wood - Wednesday

Year 5/6C Miss Dunn - Friday

Please ensure your child has the correct PE kit, which is as follows:

Indoor - plain white t-shirt, plain black sports shorts and black plimsolls

Outdoor - plain white t-shirt, plain black sports shorts, plain black tracksuit bottoms, plain black top/sweatshirt and trainers

News from Nursery

The children in nursery have been very busy this week, getting settled back in and having lots of fun with their friends! They had a great time getting their hands dirty doing some seed planting as part of our day of Science.

A true inspiration

This week, the children's learning has been planned around Sir Tom Moore’s book ‘One Hundred Steps’. The children in Years 5 & 6 have worked really hard on creating some beautiful artwork.
