A slightly shorter,
but no less busy term for the children and staff at Alexandra.
up to produce some memorable assemblies and celebrations of
learning this term, and demonstrated this again at the Extravaganza
this week. Included in the Extravaganza were the performances
our children made at the Harrow Choir and Dance Showcases
earlier this year. Thank you to the children and staff for
working so consistently hard throughout this term to make
these events possible, and of course to you for attending
these events. Itís hard to emphasise just how much it means
to the children when you take time out of your day to see
them in school. If you took your own photos or videos of these
events, enjoy them! Please remember that these should not
be uploaded onto any social media sites, as they will contain
images of other children. Thankyou for your understanding
Your children will
be returning home today with a kit to grow your own tomato
plant. Have a go at planting this over the holiday. It would
be lovely to see some photos of the plants growing, or even
better, of your family enjoying these at a meal time!
The children and
staff enjoyed a Bring and Share lunch today, in which classes
prepared food for all to enjoy. Events like these, which bring
the whole school community together, make for some magic moments!
Next term, Alexandra
turns 40! We will be celebrating this on Wednesday, 25th April,
and will be inviting parents to take part in some of these
celebrations at the end of that day. Look out for a letter
in the new term which will give more details of this.
On behalf of all
the staff at Alexandra, I would like to wish our children
and families a restful Spring Break. For those who celebrate
Easter, I trust this will be an important time of contemplation
and reflection . We will see you all again on Monday 13th

Parent and Family
Goslings and Snow
Geese families have been involved in our brand new Making
Changes parenting support course. The course has been really
well attended, and conversation has been both stimulating
and thought provoking for all. We have two more sessions to
go, and look forward to being able to offer this course to
other families in the future.
Jo Ward has led
another successful Family Learning Project, with a focus on
Arts and Craft. Children and parents have loved getting stuck
in to messy activities and enjoyed developing confidence in
engaging in these kinds of less structured tasks. It has been
lovely to spend time with our children and families in this
way. Do look out for more of these courses again in the summer
Goodbye and Hello
Alas, there are
occasions when itís time for our geese to move on. Dan Egan
joined us nearly six years ago. All of the children have had
the opportunity to work with Dan in the time he has been here,
if not as an LSA in class, then in music sessions, as part
of the choir, or within the Christmas production which he
has increasingly taken responsibility for writing, composing,
rehearsing and performing with the children We are sorry to
see him go, and wish him every success for the future.
