Dear Parents and Carers,

I loved our Sports day last week, the atmosphere was wonderful thanks to all the parent support. I thought that all the children did brilliantly; I was particularly impressed by our Year 6 Sports Ambassadors, who ensured the smooth running of the day, and also by our Nursery and Reception children who didn’t seem at all fazed by the event! Thank you to our parents who supplied the refreshments for the day. We are having a wonderful week at school.

On Monday our orchestra played in our assembly, on Tuesday morning we had our Summer Concert which was delightful – we have so many very talented musicians and singers. We’ve had a fabulous year and on behalf of all the staff I want to thank you for your support. We hope that you have happy and safe holidays and we look forward to seeing you all again in September.We wish all the families who are leaving us this year all the very best and do keep in touch!

Best wishes and happy holidays, Penny Cox

 Important InformationBreakfast Club. From September the cost of the breakfast club is changing; 7.45am start £4.00, 8am start £3.50House Names. Thanks to our Junior Leadership team we now have revamped our House names for the juniors. They followed democratic processes and the names voted for by the children were: Fleming (green) will become Attenborough, Nelson (blue) will be Churchill, Alfred (yellow) will be Pankhurst and Wren (red) will be Rowling. Things to do this summer. Please read with your child every day, 5 minutes a day on their times tables and perhaps keeping a diary will be a huge help to them. Don’t forget to sign up to the library “Summer Reading Challenge” and of course do teach your child to swim if they can’t already – this skill could save their life! But most of all, relax and have fun with them. “The Hut". As we are losing our beloved “bonus class” year 6 this year we will have the use of the demountable (aka The Hut) from September. We are going to give this space over to curriculum enhancement so the teachers will have timetabled slots that they can use for science or other activities such as art and DT.

Congratulations to Mark Collett, one of our much loved LSAs, who will be studying a day a week from next year in order to gain a teaching qualification.

As you can see the school is being outstandingly successful. I would like to thank the whole staff team for their dedication to our children. Our focus for next year is greater depth writing. Our plans include supporting the children with their phonics, fine motor control and handwriting through to spelling and developing a love of reading. Please support your child with their reading. Come along to the Welcome Evening on the evening of the 3rd October to find out more about how you can support your child to be the best writer that they can be.
