Weekly Newsletter

Dear Parents and Carers,

Well done to all of the pupils in year 6 who completed their end of year 6 assessments this week. We are very proud of you as you demonstrated huge amounts of commitment and tried your very best throughout the whole week, all with an amazingly positive attitude. Thank you to the year 6 team who have been relentless in ensuring that the pupils have consistently received high quality teaching. I know they have some exciting projects for the rest of the term which I am certain the pupils are going to love! Have a great day at the Olympic park, you all deserve it!

Walk to School Week:  15th - 19th May
Next week is Walk to School week and we want as many pupils as possible to walk to school. If you have to drive or get the bus to school, you could park further away and walk or get off the bus a few stops before your normal bus stop. The walk to school is the perfect opportunity for some quality family time or a good chat with friends which will help develop strong and happy relationships. There are also numerous health benefits of walking to school too!
Happy Shoesday!
On Tuesday 17th May, we are challenging you to wear fabulously decorated shoes to celebrate walking. You could decorate shoes in any creative way possible, including: adding stickers, tinsel, coloured laces and ribbon, or anything else you can think of! Our JTAs will be selecting the best decorated shoes and their owners will receive a prize.
Walking Team Challenge
We are challenging all pupils to take part in our Walking Team Challenge from 16th – 19th May. There are spaces for 20 teams of 4 pupils.
What walking counts for the challenge
  • For this challenge we are including your total walking from Monday morning to Friday morning:
  • Walk to school (part or all the way)
  • Walk at lunchtime
  • Walk from school (part or all of the way)
  • Taking the stairs
  • Walking at home
Walkers' Breakfast
On Friday 19th May, we will be having a walkers' breakfast. If you walk to school, you will get a delicious treat when you arrive so that you are ready to learn when you get to your classroom.
We look forward to welcoming as many walkers as possible into school next week!
