New School Roof
Upcoming Building Work
Over the next few months, we will be having the entire roof of the Key Stage 2 building replaced. Due to the size of the project, the work cannot be completed during the school holidays, so some of the work will be done during the summer term.
Scaffolding has been erected during the half term break and the work is due to start right away. While we are still in school for the summer term, the contractors will only be working on the flat roof areas. The main pitched roof will not be started until we break up for the summer holidays.
PTA Summer Fayre
We have already received lots of very exciting raffle prizes, so watch this space for the tickets to go on sale.
If you are able to help run a stall at the fayre or know of a local business that would like to support us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, with your name, contact number and email address.
Safer Internet Day 2019
This year’s theme for Safer Internet Day is ‘understanding consent in a digital world’. Across the school we have been talking about how consent and permission work in an online context and how our choices can make a positive change online.

Children in Need
The children had a fantastic time, dancing away at our Dotty Disco and wearing their spots for Children in Need. We would like to thank you all, for the amazing fundraising you have done; we have raised £455. Well done!
This week we have been thinking about the significance of Remembrance and talking about the 100 year anniversary since the end of World War 1. Part of our learning involved all of the children making a poppy to display on the school fence with a message of peace. You can watch a video of this below.

The Big Pedal
Coopers Lane is participating in Sustrans ‘The Big Pedal’ from 23rd April – 4th May 2018.
Sustrans Big Pedal is the UK’s largest inter-school cycling and scooting challenge inspiring pupils, staff and parents to choose two wheels for their journey to school.
Sustrans Big Pedal will run for 10 days from 23 April to 4 May 2018 and is open to individual classes as well as whole schools.
What is the challenge?
On each day, schools compete to see who can get as many of their pupils, staff and parents cycling or scooting to school. Your school’s best five days will determine your final position, but you can log journeys on all ten days if you wish.
