A Message from Mr Nation
I know all the parents, carers and children will have noticed all the extra effort the Castle Team have put in over the past two weeks. They always go over and above and it doesn't go unnoticed. They have organised and attended many after school events that it is easy to forget that they too have families at home! Cross Country, Stargazing, Youth Speaks, Bikeability, training and courses that were held after school hours, clubs and Castle's very own performance of Peter Pan - all in two weeks! That's as well as their day job! Thank you Castle Team on behalf of everyone.
What a busy start to the second half of the Spring Term. Bikeability was a huge success last week. The children represented Castle School brilliantly and were a credit to themselves. Not only were the children inspired to cycle more, Mrs Abbott and Miss Dodge were also full of joy having spent two days on their bicycles! Thank you to Mrs Knobbs, Mrs Abbott, Miss Dodge and Mrs Szarmach for organising and assisting with this important event. Mrs Szarmach has also been busy behind the scenes organising Forest School sessions with the Ham Hill Rangers. Some of the children have the opportunity to go to Ham Hill and carve their initials into a wooden leaf to finish their project on the natural playground near Fairy Glen. What a great way to make their mark for years to come! Mr Penn organised for a company to come to Castle last week and hold a performance based on e-safety. It was an engaging and thought provoking session. Please continue to support your child to be safe online, even when they’re playing games with their friends. Finally, a huge thank you to all who supported and attended the Stargazing evening last Wednesday. It was a fantastic event and the staff went over and above as always.
A BIG THANK YOU to Mr Main for all his help this week. As you all know, Charlie gives up much of his time for the children (and staff) at Castle and we're very grateful.
