Summer Fair Thank you
Thank you to everyone who so generously sent in donations and supported our Fair. We all had a wonderful afternoon with some highlights from the children being: the cakes and delicious food and treats, the Viking sword fighting and storytelling, the fire engine, bouncy slide, beat the goalie, young apprentice stalls, raffles and tombola. A special mention also for persevering with our Maypole dancing in the rain!
Friends of the School Thank you
A huge thank you to Beth Wheldon and her team and all parents who supported our end of term events so well. The Summer Fair and end of term events raised approximately £1,400. This total will be further added to through matched funding from parents with links to business. We will keep you posted!
Friends of the School will be funding our autumn term visiting theatre company performance of The Wizard of Oz. It continues to support updates to our IT equipment and we are exploring further ground works to eliminate muddy surfaces in our Class 1/2 outdoor area.
We had a wonderful day on Tuesday; thank you for donating gazeebos to keep us cool.
We were very impressed with how all the children cooperated so well in mixed aged teams and some great individual performances also,
Summer holiday activities for children – ‘The Big Friendly Read’
We have sent home a variety of leaflets publicising summer holiday activities in the local community. We are once again promoting the Library Service Reading Summer Challenge – The Big Friendly Read. This is free and operates from all local libraries. Children register and get stickers, free gifts, a certificate and a medal for reading a minimum of 6 books from the library in the summer. Lots of free activities are running in the libraries also- illustrators, workshops, art and craft sessions.
Ordering School Uniform online
You can order uniform online and through our website through Tesco or Brigade. There is a deadline of 7th August for Brigade orders for delivery for September.
Bags 2 School dates for next year
The dates are: 4.10.16; 28.2.17; 12.6.17. Thank you to our Y6 Leavers who are continuing to support us.
Leavers Assembly 2.30pm today
We will say farewell to our Y6 leavers and some families who are moving house and leaving us this summer in this special service this afternoon. Everyone is welcome. It is a very special occasion and our love and prayers go with all our families and children as they move on from us.
Wishing you a very happy holiday
We finish for the summer term today, Friday 22nd July at 3.30pm. All the staff join with me in wishing you a happy and restful summer break. A huge thank you for the lovely cards and gifts you have sent for all the staff; you have been incredibly kind.
The children return to school for the Autumn Term on Tuesday 6th September 2016.
