Dear Parents and Carers

What lovely sunshine we have today to end the week! We hope that the Year Six children are having a lovely day at the beach to celebrate getting through their SATs tests. We are all very proud of the hard work that they have put in.

As we are getting closer to the May half term this is just a reminder that all clubs have now finished so all children will need to be collected at normal time next week.

Rocksteady Music Concert      

On Wednesday 26th June, the children who are currently in a Rocksteady band are putting on a concert for the school to show us what they have been doing over the past term. This will start at 10.50am (we appreciate this is in the middle of the morning, but we have had to go with the time that the Rocksteady teacher can do!). Parents of the children who are performing are more than welcome to come to this concert. We look forward to seeing you then!

Music Assemblies

Well done to all the children for their performances in assembly this morning!

I am really looking forward to next week’s assembly.

Friday 24th May - Years 3, 5 and 6

Message from Nursery

Thank you so much to all the families that have donated plants! We have had aubergines, tomatoes, squash and strawberries to name just some. We will look forward to eating the crops later in the year.

Kirsty Way - GB Trampolinist visit

As you will be aware, Kirsty Way was unable to attend our planned event before Easter because she was stuck in Rome with a delayed flight! Now she is back in the country, we have managed to re-arrange her visit for Wednesday 12th June. If you handed in sponsorship money previously, this has been kept back for this date.  The sponsored circuits will also happen on this morning.

Class Photos

We have Tempest in on Wednesday 22nd to do class photos. They will start in Nursery at 9am so if your child does not attend Nursery on Wednesday mornings you are more than welcome to bring them in for the photo and take them home again. Please ensure that your children are in full school uniform for the photo. If your child has P.E. on Wednesday, they should come in their normal uniform and bring their P.E. kit separately.  

Summer 2 Clubs

Your child(ren) will come home with a clubs letter at the start of next week ready for the second half of the summer term.  Please return the form to the office or your child's class teacher by Wednesday 5th June. We will then let you know which clubs have been allocated to your child(ren) by Friday 7th June via email.  Clubs will start back in the second week after half term, the week beginning Monday 10th June. They will run for 6 weeks, finishing on Friday 19th July.  Please ensure you only sign up to clubs that your child wants to attend, as spaces are always limited, and we always have a waiting list.  Thank you to all the staff who give up their own time to run a club.
