The snow days seem like a life time ago now but we definitely made the right to decision to close the school for two days. I would like to express my thanks to David and Kate Nelson-Brown for giving all members of Clearwell Primary School free entry to Perrygrove on Tuesday so that we could make the most of the snow. I know that my own children loved it and by the looks of these photographs your children did too!
We had a wonderful time at the Pantomime but didn’t manage to take any photographs because we were too busy enjoying ourselves! We loved our ice-creams or sweets and were particularly vocal when required. Mrs Lawrence really enjoyed the dancing at the end!
Our Reverse Advent Calendar is looking really healthy and we have filled two boxes so far. I am hoping that in the last few days of term we can try and fill another box. We never know when we will need support from charities such as the Forest Food Bank hence our decision to support them at this time of year.
We have extra celebrations this week because we have awarded children who have read at least three times a week every week. This is what we expect at Clearwell and are really pleased that a number of children have succeeded in doing this. We are hoping for even more children to be awarded certificates at Easter – by the end of January we should have all of our new books in school. Children from year 2 – 6 have weekly spelling tests and we have awarded a certificate to the children who have the highest average score for their year group. I don’t think that there is any surprise that all of the top spellers also read at least three times a week.
Our 100% attendance and Headteacher awards will be given out at the end of the Carol Service at the church on Wednesday.
