Dear Families,

I am writing before the return of our lucky rugby ‘fans’ who have had the opportunity to see the England Men’s team train. Even though they are not back, I know that they are having a super time! Thank you Mr Squires for your major role in securing tickets for this event. We are really grateful and happy that some of our Warthill children were also able to benefit from this event too. I cannot wait to hear all about it. It should be the talk of the swimming bus tis afternoon!

Don’t forget it is World Book Day next week. I know that we are all looking forward to it. Linked to the event, Miss Heffernan wanted to share this information with you all. Looking at the forecast, Sunday looks like a better day!

This coming weekend there is a new trail ,in York, of book related sculptures. It’s called the Snook Trail.  It will run while WBD is on too. This is a free event. More information can be found from the links attached.

Have fun!

Talking about reading: More good news. I know that the children really like to read these newspapers which are packed things to be positive about!

You are a lucky winner of a 10 pack of Issue 33 of The Happy Newspaper and it should be with very soon. The theme for this issue is Adventure and we hope it shows the children that adventure can be found in so many ways.

For any of our families wanting to know the next steps regarding our nursery places. The 6 places have been agreed and therefore these places will be taken from after Easter. Currently, these seem to be children who will be Sand Hutton starters in reception from September. However, should parents from either school require further information, please contact the Sand Hutton school office on 01904 468308.

So, all that remains is for me to wish you a very happy weekend. I am guessing tis may be World Book Day Egg Filled! Enjoy!

With every best wish,
