204 children and 32 adults were safely returned from The Tower of London yesterday. Thank you for getting to your child to school extra early, it made a huge difference. We were all inside the Tower by 10am and had a fantastic 5 hours mooching around and learning lots. At the end of the day a lady approached me to say how well behaved the children were. I have a lot of tired, but extremely happy children and adults around school today.
I already have a few ideas where to take the children on our whole school trip next year, but if you or your child has an idea, please return the slip at the bottom of the page. It is the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee next year so any ideas with a ‘Royal’ theme would be appreciated.
I would like to take this opportunity to say goodbye to Devon Beach in Miss Gordon/ Mrs Tysterman’s class. He is moving down to Cornwall. Good luck in your new school, Devon.
Whole School Photograph
As last year, at the end of our visit yesterday we had a whole school photograph taken. If you would like to purchase the photograph (9” by 6”), please return the slip at the bottom of the page. The cost is £3.
The week started off well. I had three year six children, Peter Bird, Melissa Zerman and Lily McManus, come to me. They wrote an excellent diary entry pretending to be Macbeth. Ceylan Corakkum and Victoria Fry from Ms Stafford’s class finished off my week with a smile, because they had been rewarded with a green card today. Also, well done to Albie Paris who has become the first year three pupil this year to become a times table tester.
Well done to Ms Stafford’s class who had the best attendance last week and are ‘jumping the queue’ this week!
As you know our Sports Day this year is on the 29th June starting at 9.15. On the same day we have a special school dinner which is ‘Wimbledon’; to link our special days together we are going to change from our usual coloured t-shirts to wearing sports wear of a particular sport. Your child will be given a team on Thursday 26th May, please can you unsure your child has either the colour given or the kit suggest for their team by the 29th June. The teams are as follows:
Football Football shirt or red t-shirt
Tennis All white or white t shirt
Volleyball Beachwear or yellow t shirt
Runner Vest top with a number on or green t-shirt
We hope that this will make the morning even more exciting and competitive for the children.
Mr Pacitto has been busy counting all the vouchers. Please check in your wallets, shopping bags and down the back of the sofa for any remaining vouchers and return them to school by Friday 10 June.
This is just a reminder that school is closed tomorrow (Friday 27 May) due to a staff INSET day.
