Dare to Discover

1st April 2022

Don’t miss this week...

  • PE day changes
  • Consultation FAQs
  • JS Sports clubs

As we come to the end of our Spring term, we just wanted to thank you all for your ongoing support.  Despite significant continued disruption in school, particularly with high levels of staff absence, we  have greatly enjoyed gradually re-introducing many of the parts of school life that we all love so much.  Upper school spent an incredible three days at Norfolk Lakes on their residential, middle school started our return to live performances with a bang, we welcomed parents to our multiplication workshops in Year 4, and children have been out visiting the Nature Reserve, the Tower of London, West Stowe, Celtic Harmony and Windsor castle.  We cannot wait for all the excitement that the summer term will bring. 

 

Beginning of term

We are looking forward to welcoming the children back on Wednesday 20th April for the first day of the summer term.

Consultation: Changing the school week

Thank you to everyone who has already contributed to our consultation about changing the school week.  We have used your responses to create an initial set of FAQs.  We will add to this as the consultation continues and more questions are raised. 

You can find the first FAQs here:

Lollipop Shop and Children’s Book Project

Thank you!

We are so lucky to have received not one but two fantastic donations of books recently. A huge thank you to the Children's Book Project who recently delivered one hundred and fifty nearly new books. Thank you also to Sarah from the Lollipop shop, who kindly donated a large number of books to the library too.  These will be used to replenish our book stock in the library and book corners. The children are already so excited to read them. 

Finally, a big thank you to all the families that have made donations of books to the school. Your generosity has a big impact and we are very grateful!

Today we say a very fond farewell to Mrs. Allen, who is moving on to pastures new.  We are very grateful to Mrs. Allen for all her hard work at Fulbourn Primary School over the years and she is going to be missed, especially by all the children in early years.  We wish Mrs. Allen the best in her new role.

We also send our best wishes to Ms. Lowndes, who is beginning her maternity leave and look forward to hearing exciting news about her new baby soon!
