Weekly Newsletter - Friday 15th July

Headteacher: Mrs L Nicholls 

Dear Parents and Carers,

Year 6 Leavers
Year 6 enjoyed their leavers celebration this week and it was a wonderful occasion and a great time was had by all. Well done to year 6 who spoke, sung and presented like professionals. Thank you to the staff for putting it all together and many thanks to all of the parents who supported this occasion.

Go Bonkers
Yesterday we had a fabulous day in school and pupils enjoyed their sessions on the inflatables. Unfortunately, the ice pops didn’t freeze due to the kitchen freezers struggling in the heat. The pupils will get to enjoy a nice cold treat today.

As we are already aware, there is a weather warning in place for next week. Children can wear their school PE kit to school (navy blue shorts and white t-shirts with or without the school logo). Pupils must have sunscreen applied before they come and must bring in a bottle of water and sunhat. This week we have opened the school hall at lunchtimes for pupils to shade from the sun. However, next week we will be limiting the time that children spend outside and minimising physical activity. All of the windows and doors will be opened and blinds closed to try and keep the classrooms as cool as possible.

Reports and Parents Evening
Your child’s end of year report will be sent home today. If you would like to discuss the report with your child’s class teacher all staff will be available from 3.15 pm on Monday 18th July. If you would like an appointment please email the year group email box There is a feedback form which we would ask all parents to complete and send back to school by the end of the term. We warmly welcome your feedback and would love to hear if there is anything you feel we could improve.

Meet the New Teachers and Classes
Transition activities have been in full flow over the last few weeks in school. There will be blogs posted after school, which will be available to read via the school website and facebook. This information will include year group staff for September and you will receive a letter on Monday informing you of your child’s new teacher and class. On Tuesday 19th July, all pupils will have the opportunity to spend time with their new teachers in their new classrooms. I have no doubt you will hear all about it when you collect your child at the end of the day.

After School Clubs
Today, Friday 15th July, is the last day for after school clubs. You will be sent information regarding new clubs in September.

Return to School: Monday 5th September
We are looking forward to welcoming back pupils in years 1 - 6 on Monday 5th September after the summer break.

Reading Books
Please can you ensure that all school reading books, Read, Write, Inc books and library books are returned to school by Tuesday 19th July.
