Our thanks to Mr Blundell and Class 9 who transported us into poetry land with their fantastic assembly this morning! The children amazed us all with their creativity, outstanding poetry writing and superb performances, which truly brought the poems to life. I was unable to tell the difference between the poems they had written and those by famous poets, well done!
Thank you to all parents who attended our parent teacher meetings this week. We hope you found them useful and informative.
Week Beginning 9th March 2015
What is coming up this week…
On Monday 9th March our Infant CSMA children will be attending another rehearsal at the Fairfield Halls during the morning. Thank you to those parents who are assisting us with transport, it is greatly appreciated. Please do help your children with learning the words at home as they will not be able to use their lyric sheets at the performance.
On Tuesday 10th March Mrs Richardson’s dance group attend their final rehearsal during the morning for the dance festival at the Fairfield Halls. The children’s work is looking fantastic and we can’t wait for the performance this evening which will be at 6pm. Please see additional letters for more details if your child is performing in this event.
On Wednesday we are delighted to welcome CBeebies Rhyme Rocket to The Hayes. They are coming in to work with the children in Reception and Year 1 to increase rhyme awareness and improving language development. As you know developing young children’s awareness of rhyme is an essential tool in helping your children to grow as young readers. Also on Wednesday 11th March we invite all parents of children in Year 5 to attend a meeting about the upcoming residential visit to Carroty Wood at 5pm. This will be an opportunity for you to find out more about the arrangements and activities and ask any questions.

They will be looking at how the National Trust conserves the area, linked into their science and literacy work. Also on Thursday our Junior children will attend their rehearsal at The Fairfield Halls this morning.
On Friday 13th March our school council have organised a ‘Crazy Hair day’ in order to raise money for books for each classes book corners throughout the school. We suggest children bring in a £1.00 donation in order to take part. As it is also ‘Red Nose Day’ children will be able to wear their red noses and the school council have decided to split the money raised between comic relief and their fundraising event. Please see the letter from the school council regarding more information about this.
