Week Beginning 13th July 2015

I really cannot believe it is the last week of term already, time has really flown by this term.


Firstly our Jump Rope for Heart on Friday was an enormous success, many thanks to Mr Blundell for organising this.  Huge thanks to the Year 5 and Year 6 children who led the activities and ensured the children had a great time. If the children could bring all the money in by Wednesday next week, that would be greatly appreciated.


Also here is some advanced notice of Kenley fun day, on 26th July, which is a local community day that is held every other year on Kenley Common. The event has been running for 8 years and is open to everyone from the Kenley, Whtyeleafe, Purley, Caterham areas.  It is a non-profit making group and nearly all activities on the day are free (with an optional donation bucket) so as to make it as inclusive as possible, people being encouraged to bring a picnic. It is a very uncommercial event, so no pitches are sold.  Previous years attendances have been up to 3,500+ so it has grown to be a very popular local event.  Should you wish for any further information please see the Facebook link below for some of the details.


Week Beginning 13th July 2015


On Monday 13th July one of our school governors, Rev Chris Thompson is visiting our Reception classes, we welcome him.  Our school reports go home today.


On Tuesday 14th July our KS1 children are lucky enough to watch the dress rehearsal of the Year 6 production of Robin Hood before their evening performance on Thursday.


Also on Tuesday the children will be spending time meeting their new class teachers for September.  At the end of the day they will be dismissed from their current classrooms by their new teachers, who will lead the children out so that you are able to say hello and introduce yourselves. 


On Wednesday 15th July all children in Year 3 and 4 are having an Egyptian day in school. We do hope that they all have a super day.  Also on Wednesday our Year 5 children are visiting Whyteleafe Recreation ground, for their games and sports event.  We hope the weather stays dry for them.


On Thursday 16th July we invite all Year 6 parents to see their children’s leavers performance of Robin Hood in the school hall.  We thank Miss Cumming and Mr Raffield for all of their hard work helping their classes prepare for the performance and hope that the children all enjoy the experience.  We thank the PTA for organising the filming of the performance.  The DVDs will be available for £10, to collect from the school office in September.   Please check their website in order to purchase these in advance.


We finish for the summer holidays on Friday at 1.30pm.  We do wish you all a safe and enjoyable summer holidays.  We thank all parents for your continued support this year. 

We also thank all staff at the school for all of their endless hard work to make The Hayes such a fantastic school for the children.  We are sad to say goodbye to Mr Blundell, Mr Raffield and Miss Schoeffer .  We thank them for all of the wonderful teaching and hard work they have contributed to The Hayes over the Years, especially Mr Blundell’s commitment to developing and improving our Sports Provision, Mr Raffield for his development of Mathematics and Computing and the incredible job Miss Schoeffer has done in leading the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 team in Mrs Farr’s absence this year alongside her continued development of Art and phonics teaching.  We wish them well in their new roles and will miss them all.  If you wish to contribute to a collection for them please leave this with the school office, thank you.
