TERM DATES FOR 2017
Dorset Litton Cheney in the Bride Valley
Chesil have been superheroes!  Please look on our website for the comic strips they made. We had a wonderful church service.  Thank you to all who joined us.  Thank you also to our readers, bellringers and musicians and all who help set up the church for our service. A note for your diaries: The end of term service will be at 9.30am on Tuesday 18 July instead of on Thursday.  This is a special occasion for the Year 6 children who go up the bell tower and wave! Sport: Our Bredy children took part in the West Big Swing tournament at Colfox.  Some of our Bredy and Eggardon swimmers took part in the West Dorset Schools Collaboration swimming gala at the Bridport Leisure Centre. Our 10 week Musicianship Programme, provided by the Dorset Music Service, has started with a fanfare! This year we opted for brass and have received trombones, trumpets and cornets.  The children are thoroughly enjoying their lessons and tell me that they are practising (loudly!) at home! The children will perform a concert at 2.40pm in LATCH on Wednesday 12 July. You may be aware that we are a Silver Eco School.  We have recently signed up to a County ‘Step Up’ programme with a view to achieving the Green Flag by the end of this calendar year.  TSA news:  A great big thank you to the TSA for their huge work refurbishing Fledglings and repainting the school playground.
