A little note from myself Christian.
I am really excited to have taken over this site and will be dropping bits into the newsletter to update parents on what their children could be getting involved with. As of the week commencing the 13th of May we will be commencing two themed days, Tuesdays will be cooking where I will be attempting to make some yummy snacks with the children and Tapas Thursdays that will consist of an hour long Spanish lesson and Span-ish style snack. Pancake Fridays in the morning will also be coming soon so watch out for that, as who wouldn’t love a pancake before school. Also there will be sports and Arts theme of the week running alongside this. Next weeks will be Invasion games and Weather theme. For any questions please feel free to pop in and have a chat.
Soon we will be looking to appoint new Parent Governors for Witley Infant School.
If you would like to know more about the role or would like to express your interest, please do contact Mrs Turner via the school office.
Our new term began last week with a visit from Rabbi Zvi Solomans.

He spent time working with each class and gave an inspirational talk sharing some of the beliefs, customs and celebrations that Jewish families follow. He showed the children artefacts, compared Judaism with Christi-anity and re-told some stories from the Bible and the Torah. He was very engaging and it was a privilege to learn more about the religion first hand—we have all benefitted from the experience as a result.
We celebrated World Book Day by sharing our favourite books and dressing up as one of the characters. In this age of technology, it is heart warming to see the amount of pleasure reading can bring to us all.
The costumes looked really good!!
I liked being in my spaceman outfit.
