Welcome to our Weekly Newsletter where we share relevant information with you about what has been happening here at Bracken Leas and events planned in future weeks.

Welcome back!

This term has got off to a flying start with lots happening in school. The Early Years Team are continuing to work on revamping the eco area and are making good progress. We will soon be publishing a wish list of the materials we need and would appreciate any help you can give with this. Particular thanks to Mrs Hancock and Mrs Jarman who have given up lots of their time to work on this project.

Our wonderful whole school Romero Britto display is now fully installed in the link corridor. It is very colourful and looks stunning if you get a chance to see it.

Over the last two days M & M Theatrical Productions have been in school with 7 performances of The Wizard of Oz. Usually, a treat for the children in the new year, we are very pleased to have been able to make this happen. A big thank you to FOBL for funding this event which the children seem to have really enjoyed.

Year 1 have started using the Bee Bots, purchased thanks to a donation from Mercedes AMG Petronas specifically to be used on IT and we are very grateful to them for funding this. We are still deciding on the best use for the remainder of the donation to our school.

This afternoon Year 3 are creating rivers on the school field as part of their Geography work. They have really enjoyed this activity as you can see from the photos!

Finally, a letter has gone out today to all parents about the upcoming Warrior Challenge. We would really appreciate any support you can give to help us meet their ambitious target of £7000, enabling us to replace our existing Adventure Playground equipment.

A polite reminder to Year 5, Bikability begins on Monday. Please ensure your child has suitable clothing for all weathers!
