Week Beginning 1st May 2017
This week we have had a wonderful time celebrating the arts during our ‘Arts Week’. The children have been involved in many great events. Academic success is of course important to us at The Hayes but so is ensuring that our children have the opportunity to experience a broad and balanced curriculum which gives them the chance to improve and further develop skills in areas other than the core subjects. This week we have seen some amazingly talented children and have been filled with pride watching the children improve their levels of confidence and expertise in new and exciting ways…look out for photos coming soon to the school website and Twitter feed!
Today we congratulated the following children who were all selected by their teachers to attend the Head Teachers termly reward for being wonderful individuals. Unfortunately, due to some technical difficulties, they did not receive the reward as planned (they did however receive a pen, popcorn and a drink!) but we will rearrange another day for our stars over the next few weeks. Congratulations to our children who responded sensibly and maturely when we realized that the reward just wouldn’t work!

A reminder…tonight we are hosting our annual ‘Hayes Has Talent’ Competition where you will get to see just a tiny snippet of the talent we have at our wonderful school. We are more than aware that we also have talented scientists, mathematicians, historians, authors, swimmers, poets, athletes to name just a few and that not all talents can be easily demonstrated on the stage. We are proud of all of our children but wish those performing in this evening’s event the best of luck! Time to see one of our values (Self-Belief) in action!
Coming up next week…
Monday is May Day holiday and school is therefore closed to children. We hope you enjoy the extended weekend!
It is Watching Week for swimming so we welcome any parents who wish to observe their children’s swimming lesson to join us this week. If your child usually swims on a Monday and you wish to attend, please do join us the following week (Monday 8th).
On Wednesday we welcome parents of children in class 10 to join us for their class assembly. This will be held in the school hall at 9:15. We hope to see you there!
On Friday 5th, Year 3 are heading out on their trip to Butser Farm where they will be bringing the past to life! We are sure they are in for an amazing fun filled day and look forward to sharing photos and feedback from the children soon!
Finally, we would like to pass on our congratulations to Mrs Olley who is expecting a baby in August. We wish her a happy and healthy remainder of her pregnancy and look forward to sharing news of the arrival in the new academic year.
Have a great weekend.
