On Saturday, the school gates opened - by none other than Liverpool FC rising star Jamie Stephens(!) - to crowds of supportive parents, pupils and community members. Alas, it was the Blue Coat May Fair. The PTA did a fantastic job of putting on a varied programme of activities that included a number of dance displays, workout classes, singing choirs... as well as a range of stalls that tantalised punters to part with their cash - all in the name of school fundraising!

Our 2012 May Fair springs into action on Saturday 19th May and we are still in need of parent helpers to make the event work.

If you can spare just 2 hours of your time to help man stalls then the day will be saved! We desperately need willing parents to take a shift from 11am-1pm or 1pm-3pm to assist in this crucial school fundraiser which usually contributes significantly to the school's annual budget.

On Thursday, a selection of our Year 5 and 6 girls had a unique sporting opportunity: to meet a female sports icon! In return, they had to participate in a friendly festival of cricket where they would play against other school teams whilst receiving some focused coaching and support from a number of experts.

What with Blue Toes and Science & Engineering Week in quick succession last term, the Gloucestershire Gazette kindly decided to make these events newsworthy. A number of our pupils from Years 2, 5 and 6 along with Mr Herring, Mrs Fowles and Mr Clements all got snapped in the process! Take a look...

Yesterday, Mrs Galvin (the school's Music Leader) organised a special Easter concert for parents of those children who feature in the School Choir, School Orchestra and who play recorders. The event was very well attended, had great atmosphere and the casual format allowed parents to dip in and out during the concert to see their children perform.

The Tag Rugby Club has had a very busy term. As well as training every Monday after school, we have also taken part in a number of festivals and tournaments.

It's here again! Our PTA open their annual competition to eager-eyed Infants and Juniors, encouraging them to peer in Wotton shop windows to look for cartoon characters or 'odd-one-out' items. Read the PTA section to find out more details...

In addition, the PTA will be holding a Second Hand Uniform Sale after school on Tuesday 27th March and before school on Wednesday 28th March. Weather permitting the sale will take place in front of the school hall. If you have any uniform items you wish to donate to the sale, please leave them with the school office before Tuesday 27th March.

Last year we held a community information evening focused on children's spelling. Parents were subsequently given a Home Support Pack outlining expectations for spelling by year group (from Reception to Year 6), resources, keywords, games and tips on how to support your child at home with this key skill.

What wonderful weather to start spring! We hope everyone had a good time. Here are some memories of the after-show party from 3pm onwards. Please check class blogs for photos taken during the day.

Congratulations to 'Marg' Fowles for winning the raffle prize of a trip for 2 to Tamworth Snow Dome!

Sun, snow and skates: the first group of the day, Class Italy, took to the ice first thing this morning, desperate to show off their skills. Of course, in the interests of Health and Safety, Mrs Nelson, Mrs Clarke and myself had to also make sure that the ice was safe and skate-worthy (in fact the Reception children were remarkable stabilisers for some very shaky teachers who hadn't taken to this ice since they were early teens!). Here's a few early highlights...

'Thank you' to all those who attended and made the Open Morning today possible!
