Welcome back to all our families! It has been lovely to see all the children back in school and looking smart in their uniforms and showing great enthusiasm for the year ahead! We hope they have all settled well into their new classes and are getting to know their new teachers and class routines well.
A special warm welcome to our new families and Reception starters. We hope you have all enjoyed your visits this week. The Early Years Team have really enjoyed getting to know you all a little bit better. We hope the children continue to enjoy their settling sessions until they join us full time on the 20th September.
We are delighted that swimming lessons will recommence across the school next week. For this year your child's swimming days are as follows:
Monday: Year 5 and Year 3
Tuesday: Year 4 and Year 6
Wednesday: Reception and Year 2 (Reception 1st session will be 26th September)
Thursday: Year 1
PLEASE NOTE: NEXT WEEK ONLY YEAR 5 WILL SWIM ON FRIDAY NOT MONDAY!
Pre school swimming will recommence week beginning 17th September.
On Tuesday morning we invite parents of children in Year One into school for our first parent workshop of the Year. When children enter Key Stage One we have a specific approach to teaching Maths which is known as Maths Mastery. Miss Smith, our Maths Coordinator will be leading a workshop in the school hall at 9am to explain this approach in a little more detail to help you understand how your children will be learning Maths and how you can offer support at home. We would love to see you there!
On Friday 14th September it is National Teaching Assistant Day where we will be celebrating with the children in assembly the amazing support that our dedicated team of teaching assistants make to their Education. We are proud to have such committed and hard working TAs as part of our Hayes family.
After school on Friday we have 2 events to make you aware of:
° Pro direct will be leading football trials for the school mixed football team and the girls' football team. These trials are open to children in Years 5 and 6 only. Any child interested in being considered for the team should meet coach Callum on the school field wearing appropriate kit (football boots preferable although not essential) These trials will run from 3:15 until 4:30.
° We have invited Niora Amani from the Local Authority to lead a Year 6 Secondary Transfer Meeting in the school hall at 3:30. Niora will go through the application process and be on hand to answer any questions that you may have. If you have a child in Year six, please do come along. We are sure you will find this a useful meeting.
Invoices for Wrap around care (after school club and breakfast club) will be available next week on ParentPay and we thank you in anticipation for your prompt payment. We will also be distributing a list of extra curricular activities and after school clubs next week with start dates for the new term.
