New books! Thank you!

Thank you to all the Maple Cross families who have purchased a new book for our school library through the amazon wish list. As you can see, the books look great and they are already proving very popular with the children.

All donated books from this list are fitted with a bookplate including who donated it and a message from the giver. Children LOVE getting to see their family’s name inside a book.

I continue to add new books to the amazon wish list so please find the list using the wish list search at amazon, using as the search term. If you have any questions, please ask in the office or ask me on a Wednesday or Friday afternoon. Thank you!

How much are you selling it for?

Today in Maple Cross explorers, group 3 worked together to create their own nature necklaces. I was very impressed with their collaboration skills! The older children helped the younger children learn how to use the hole punch and showed them how to thread their string through the holes. The children especially enjoyed making up prices for their finished pieces.

Maple Cross 2017 Student Council Elections

On Friday afternoon, Year 6 children presented their speeches with great confidence and enthusiasm to the younger years in order to persuade them to vote so they could become a part of the school council.

It was an extremely close election this year, with only a few votes in it. A big well done to all of Year 6 for their well-written speeches and for lots of you, taking a risk and presenting the speech to the whole school.

Commencing Monday 4th September  mains replacement gas works on Woodland Road are due to begin.   There will be  open excavations in the foot-ways on Woodland Road, the contractors are Cadent and they will have vans and machinery along Woodland Road.

Please do not park or attempt to park down Woodland Road or in the Cul-de-Sac to the school.  I realise that this is inconvenient but we urge you to either walk/cycle your children to school or park down one of the roads at the end of Woodland Road.  With the obstruction of the gas works the road must be left clear for through traffic and emergency traffic.


Thank you for your co-operation
