Dear Families,

We hope that you have had a lovely week!

Our children have been working really hard in all our classes. We were also happy to celebrate our children at home and at school in Sharing Assembly at Warthill this morning. Thank you for joining us if you were there.

Miss Heffernan wanted me to let you know to expect World Book Day tokens in book bags before the day itself. This means that you will be able to spend these while there is still choice in shops. As ever, these tokens can be exchanged for the books published especially for this day or can be used towards the cost of a book of choice.

Fish and Chip Friday was a success today and we would like to thank the school meal service for providing this free of charge today.

I have a couple of save the dates for diaries:

A Magic Evening at Sand Hutton on 20th March.

The Big Help Out at Sand Hutton on 17th March

Cinema Night at Warthill on 18th March

I also believe there is a May coffee morning in planning at Warthill but I won’t confirm the date as yet.

On a practical note, some of you may be aware that Mrs Thackray (Warthill Office) has been absent this week. As we are unsure of her being in school over the next couple of weeks, please ring Sand Hutton if nobody is able to answer the phone on the Warthill site and should you need to email, it might be safer to email if the matter is urgent.

Next Friday morning is our Rugby training session. Those attending should have received an email. This is for Classes 2 and 3 at Sand Hutton and Years 5 and 6 at Warthill. This is just a reminder for diaries. A warm winter coat on that morning might be necessary.

There is a Climate focused Saturday Social this Saturday 24th 10-12 in Sand Hutton and Claxton Village Hall – everyone is welcome from surrounding villages. There will be speakers for the first hour, including a rep from NYC talking about what they are doing re climate change, a talk on EPCs (Energy Performance Certificates – what they are and how they could help you save energy in your house) and also on the village hall’s thermal imaging camera and how it could help you understand where your home is leaking heat…Also, there will be table top displays re recycling and the NY Rotters (showcasing their Love Food/Hate Waste and Home Composting campaigns)… and more.

Afterwards there will be time to ask questions / mingle/ understand what your local Climate Action Group is trying to do to… Please share with neighbours/ come along – children welcome…

Have a lovely weekend.
