I am sure you want to know how well our Cross Country Runners performed who were chosen for District and County Cross Country Teams. I am delighted to say that Samuel Tansey came 4th in the County Finals and the year 6 boys - Samuel, Olaf and Jimmy- helped the Blaby District come 2nd in the County Finals. Well done to these boys and to Ruby who represented the year 4 girls for Blaby.

Lots of new things have been happening in school. Class 1 has looked at lots of new life with tadpoles and chicks hatching out. The chicks also visited other classes. Class 1 and 2ís trip to Brooksby College also gave them the opportunity to see two lambs being born in front of them and they saw another couple of lambs who were brought into school by one of the parents.
Class 1 and 2 have been out and about a lot this term with a visit to Glencroft Church at Glen Parva to see a Bible Exhibition. The exhibition brought to life the bible with acted out stories; life size graphics; dressing up and food tasting. It was very much enjoyed by all who went.

Class 3 took part in the Brockington Family of Schools Choral Concert. The local schools all performed a number of pieces together at Brockington College to the delight of the parents who went along. It was one of the best there has been. The children really enjoyed it and it showed on their faces and the way they performed.

Easter is nearly upon us and we have had our Easter Egg hunt today with our Easter Service in church rounding off our thoughts as we break for the holiday. The PTA cake sale after school gave us something to keep us going until we return for our very busy summer term.
