World Book Day

Don’t forget it is World Book Day on Thursday 5th March.  Children and staff are invited to bring in their favourite book to share.

All children will be given a World Book Day token which they can spend at a local bookshop or from Scholastic Book Club.  Scholastic leaflets will come home with children on Thursday along with their £1 token, alternatively the token can be used on-line at: . Orders from the leaflets need to be placed by Friday 13th March, on-line orders by Sunday 15th March.  Books will then be delivered to school by the end of term.

Have a look on the World Book Day website for some fun games to play:

Chinese New Year Celebrations



Wow! What a fantastic day celebrating Chinese New Year with Glenn Parry – I think everyone will go to sleep tonight with drumming ringing in their ears!!

All the children, including the Nursery, have taken part in dance workshops during the day.

Here are a few photos of what they have all been up to – have a look in the Gallery for more photos.




News from Tanzania

Messages from Mrs Freeman  in Tanzania:



“It is very hot here.  We have been for lunch with Mr Mwambo and spent the day visiting schools with him.  I was impressed that he managed to wear his suit all the time in this heat.  We have been for a walk through the woods with blue monkeys throwing fruit at us!  We have received great hospitality in the schools and had a meal in all three that we visited today.  We will be visiting Manyata School (Luston’s link school) tomorrow (Wednesday) – great excitement!”


“Have had a fab day.  Very very hot!”

Mrs Freeman has learnt some Tanzanian which Redwood Class have translated: “Jina lagou ni Mary.  Nina toka schule Luston.  Luston rifiki na manyat” – “My name is Mary.  I come from Luston School.  Luston are friends with Manyata!.

“Had a fantastic time with Julius Mwambo (Head Teacher at Manyata School).  All staff at Manyata are lovely.  Meeting Mrs Mwambo at their house tomorrow. Mr Mwambo loved the tree picture (ask your child about this!).


“Spent a fantastic day at Manyata Primary School today.  I saw all of the trees which were planted last year – everyone referred to them as Miss Turner’s trees.  We planted another tree to mark the occasion of the visit.  I went back to Mr Mwambo’s house and met his family.  The children at Manyata school are busy writing letters for me to bring back to Luston.”

We hope to post more news from Mrs Freeman as we receive it.
