We had a great time on the Year 6 residential this week. All the children (and adults) returned happy, but tired. They are now busy preparing for their end of year play. I look forward to seeing as many parents/ grandparents in the audience on Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday evening.
Samantha Burton started the week off well with a green card for being helpful by carrying out tasks without being asked (Mrs Chapman’s Class). Well done to Jack Hammond (Miss Gordon/ Mrs Tysterman’s Class) who has learnt all his times tables and is now working on his platinum awards. 11 children from Mrs Chapman’s Class came to see me because they had been working hard, producing good work for homework and in their literacy lessons. Aaron Joseph (Miss Smith’s Class) came to see me because he had written an excellent fable. Erin Rumens (Mrs Chapman’s Class) got a green card because she was very helpful during Mrs McConnell’s art lesson. Sam Cosford (Ms Stafford’s Class) got a green card for working hard in his numeracy lessons. Melissa Bruton (Miss Smith’s Class) received a green card for achieving her 2 times tables in platinums and showing real perseverance. Well done everyone!
Well done to Mrs Chapman’s class who won Percy last week. I know there are 3 children in that class who have 100% attendance this year. Keep it up!
Please make sure all outstanding dinner money is paid to the school office. Last year £314 was not paid. This is the same as an extra 63 books in the school library or every child not having a Literacy, Maths, Homework and Reading Journal. So it is really important that all outstanding money is paid.
Art Club and Homework Club
There will be no Art club and Homework Club next week. Both of these clubs will start again in September.
Thank you to everyone who has either spoken to me or returned the feedback forms. Your comments are much appreciated. There is still time to return your forms.
Our cricket team played Mrs Chapman’s former school on Monday and I am pleased to announce that we won by 60 runs. The whole team demonstrated good sportsmanship and the match was enjoyed by the rest of the school. Well done!
This is a reminder that we return to school on Wednesday 7 September (a day later than the Infants School). I met with the school’s Educational Welfare Officer (EWO) today and she advised me that I cannot authorise, unless exceptional circumstances, any holidays that overlap with the summer holidays and prevent your child returning to school on 7 September. Any holidays taken may cause a penalty notice being issued.
