Last Friday of half term…after the very long Autumn term, this first half of the spring term seems to have been over before it’s even started! I hope you all have a good break and we’ll see you all on our return.
“Jesus replied: ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”Matthew 22:37-39
The link below will take you to the most recent Sports Update letter. We have had a very busy term of sporting events and activities at school and by the looks of it you have at home too!
Thank you for your continued support of sport and PE at Pedmore, I am looking forward to the next term where hopefully we can continue to raise the profile of PE and physical activity at school.

Last week I sent out a newsletter survey – we only had 3 responses. The newsletter takes quite a bit of time to do but if it’s not being read then we have to question whether it’s worth taking that time, or at least as regularly as we do. So if you do read it, please take a few seconds to respond to the survey – thank you!

The Land of Roar – Jenny McLachlan
Wow we loved this book! You have to read it!
From the start the opening hooked us with the sighting of the wizard from the window. There was hook after hook; from Grandad being dragged in to the bed to the appearance of a fabulous, sassy flying horse called Prosecco! This book went from funny to menacing over and over, and had so many plot twists and turns. We never knew what would happen next!
The characters were well developed and believable and we loved how the author took the mickey out of Rose and her phone.
Other than Arthur and Rose, there were so many interesting and exciting characters: Bad Dragon, Crowky and Win. Some terrifying and some cute! The setting was magical! We all wanted to visit the Land of Roar (although we know we’d have to be brave!)
There was climax after climax. We thought the mood graph on this one would be a constantly ascending line! The ending did not disappoint (but no spoilers here!)
We would definitely read another book by Jenny McLachlan and some of us have already got the next two books in the series lined up.
We would love to ask Jenny McLachlan how she had imagined such an amazing setting and plot.
We are hoping for the movie and a Land of Roar theme park! – Mrs Robbins’ Book Club
