If you are currently a parent/carer of a child at Ditton Infant School, we hope you will find that the website keeps you up-do-date with what’s going on in school and helps you to support your child’s learning. If you are a parent/carer considering Ditton Infant School as your child’s first school, we trust that you will gain an initial introduction to us and gain a flavour of what we do.
I was delighted to see so many wonderful costumes worn to school on Monday to launch our Book Week. We have taken lots of photographs so do look at our website gallery and see how many book characters you recognise. The children enjoyed the workshops with Abie Longstaff and her stories were a top seller at the Book Fair.
My thanks go to Mr Green and Miss McGinley for co-ordinating the week’s activities which also includes the decorated egg competition. Winners will be announced next week. The week’s events stimulated some wonderful pieces of writing and 4 more handwriting pencils were awarded in today’s assembly to Year 2 children. A further six children have been in the ‘Gold Book’ five times and I will be inviting them for afternoon tea with me next Friday Afternoon.
We also have some exciting news for next week. Our local MP, Tracey Crouch will be coming to talk to us in assembly on Monday. She is the Minister for Online Safety and will be reinforcing the e-safety message with children as well as talking about her role as a Member of Parliament.
Don’t forget our Mother’s Day assemblies next week. Please see the calendar for dates and times.
Have a lovely weekend
