Dear Parents,

Another super week has passed with Year 5 particularly enjoying their Lego animation work.  Lujain Benatia and Liliana Hawkes had this to say:

‘On Monday, a member of staff from ‘Create, Build, Learn’ came in to help with our animation to depict different scenes from the story ‘Beowulf’.  We made our backdrop and used evidence from the story to support the appearance.  We organised our Lego pieces and then began to build!

Once we had finished the build, we began to film.  This was a long process as we had to carefully move the Lego, without knocking it over, and take a shot.
Finally, we had finished all 182 pictures that resulted in a 43 second Lego animation.  We then added sound effects and music!  It was a tiring process, but the final outcome was brilliant!  We think we did the legend proud!’
Well done to all of the children who took part in this activity – I can’t wait to see the animation!

Please could I ask parents ensure that both Sharmans Cross pupils and younger siblings do not play on the sports equipment in the Year 3/4 playground after school?  I understand the equipment is very tempting, however, there is no direct supervision after school and I do of course want to ensure that all children stay safe whilst on the school grounds – thank you for your support with this.

We have noticed that the wet play games and equipment is starting to look a little tired in classrooms.  If any parents are able to donate any good quality (formally loved) games or books, which would be suitable for wet playtimes in the classrooms, pupils and staff would be very grateful.  If you do have any games to donate, please send them into the office – many thanks.

Finally, if parents would like to pop into school to meet me for an informal chat over coffee on Wednesday 28th January anytime between 5.00p.m. – 6.00p.m. in the hall ,you will be very welcome.  Also, the first coffee morning this term will be on Friday 6th February between 9.00a.m. – 10a.m. and I will look forward to meeting with parents for an informal chat over coffee in the library. 

Best wishes for an enjoyable weekend!

Miss Wilkes



Please may I again remind parents about the parking restrictions around the school. Some parents are continuing to park inconsiderately on both Woodlea Drive and Sharmans Cross Road where yellow lines are in place. The safety of our whole school community is very important and we are continuing to monitor the situation closely. Please let us know if you see cars parked illegally by giving registration numbers to the school office, repeat offenders will then be published on our newsletter. Thank you for your support in this matter and ensuring the safety of our children.
