Dear Parents and Carers,
Wow! What an amazing first week back at school! Our super-heroes dived straight into their new learning journey. The rainforest experts have continued to demonstrate their wealth of knowledge. Our American explorers have enjoyed their initial virtual tour around the famous landmarks of America. The Y5 children began their swimming lessons and the Y6 children have been preparing for their SATS tests in a couple of weeks time.You will be able to see the outcomes of these new learning journeys at our ‘Time to Shine’ on Friday 20th May at the end of the school day.
I have attached an advert from the cleaning company that we currently use. We are looking for two more cleaners for our school. If you are interested, please read the advert attached.
Many of you have been asking about when the new Crossing Patrol Officer will be in place. I am pleased to share with you the great news that this will be in place from Thursday 5th May. We will welcome Mrs Wellburn who will be our new Crossing Patrol Officer. We are very grateful to Mrs Wellburn for taking on this responsibility. We can’t wait to see her in action.
Thank you to Betsy, Frazer, Alex and Ashton who have written our prayer for the month of May. They really wanted us to think about the changing seasons and the wonderful world that we have around us. They felt that the importance of the natural world should be recognised. I hope that you will be inspired when you read their prayer.
I have attached an updated date list for the summer term. This now includes Outdoor Classroom Day on Thursday 19th May when the children will need to come to school dressed ready to learn outside of the classroom that day. If it is their Forest School day then that will go ahead as usual. We have had confirmation from our resident DJ Jamie McGreal that he is able to play our end of term discos for us on Thursday 21st July.
The Jubilee Country Dancing Festival on Friday 27th May will now become part of our Summer fundraising. We will hold a ‘Grand Raffle’, a Chocolate Tombola, a Bottle Tombola and a Cake Stall. As you know, budgets for schools are becoming tighter and tighter so we therefore have to raise money ourselves if we want to enhance the learning opportunities for our children. The money that we raise will buy resources that support ‘learning outside of the classroom’ for our children. This event will take place directly after the Country Dancing Festival. We really are very grateful for your continued support. Please see more details on the flyer attached.
Have a fabulous long weekend and we look forward to seeing everyone on Tuesday 3rd May.
Take care
Kim Huggett
