Hello from Cedar Weekly Emails

Hello from Cedar!

Well, those seven weeks rushed by and we have made it to half-term!  I always take time to reflect on what has been achieved at the end of a half-term and so much has happened since the Summer.  Most importantly of all, the children have settled so well in their classes and all of our new children are already established members of the Cedar family!  Lots of exciting learning has taken place and there is a real buzz about school.  Well done and thank you to everybody!

On Wednesday afternoon it was a privilege for us to welcome athlete Luke Delahunty to school.  Luke has competed in the Invictus Games and he inspired the children with his motivational approach.  Thank you to everyone who sponsored the children for taking part in events with Luke.  Your generosity is hugely appreciated and valued.  My thanks to Ryan for organising the whole event!

Huge thanks, as well, for all donations to today's Harvest Festival.  We are supporting Southampton Basics Food Bank with the items which you have kindly given.  Your donations truly will make a difference.

Exciting news .... one of the parents in our school has written a book called 'The Happy 8' which has been published.  The book is all about children with additional needs and focuses on inclusivity.  I have attached a flyer about the book for anyone who might find this helpful.  I know that the Red Class team has been using this book in its work.  Emma, Red Class teacher, says that she finds the book perfect for children and families.  I hope that some of you also find the book a positive read.

Everybody at Cedar joins me in wishing the children and yourselves a good week and we will look forward to welcoming the children back at the usual time on Monday 30th October.  Just so that you have the date in your diaries well in advance, the term will end on Friday 15th December.

Thank you, everybody, and warm best wishes to you all,
Neil, Cesia and the whole Cedar team
