Well done to Class 6 and Miss Ward for leading our whole school assembly last Friday. We loved hearing all the facts the children have found out about the Egyptians.
We also congratulate Omari for participating in a football team that won the South Croydon finals, and came second in the Croydon finals. We are delighted that he will represent the School and that his team will be representing Croydon in the 2015 London Youth Games.
Please note that there was an error in the recent Head Teacher’s newsletter. Class 8 have already performed their amazing space assembly earlier this year and are not leading another class assembly this year.
We’d also like to remind parents that children should not be remaining unsupervised on the playground before school. If you need to drop your children to school before the doors open at 8:45am, we require a letter from you stating that they have your permission to be on the playground unsupervised. We have had reports of children playing on the playdale before school and we politely ask that you remind your children that this area is out of bounds unless supervised by a staff member. Thank you for your support in this.
Week Beginning 15th June
Our After School club started on Monday and has now been running for a week and may I congratulate the team of staff for such an excellent start. All children are happy and settled and there is such a lovely kind, caring family atmosphere. We are also delighted that the meals provided for our children are of such an excellent standard, offering a real balanced and filling meal for the end of the school day. Well done to all of our After School club team for making this such a successful start.
This week our Year 1 children will be having their phonics screening at school. Please refer to the letter sent from Miss Schoeffer regarding further information on what this involves.
On Monday 15th June our Year 5 Kwik Cricket Team will play a match during the afternoon.
Cliff Harris, our school photographer, will also be in school on Tuesday 16th June taking class and sports club photographs. Please could you ensure your child is wearing the correct full school uniform on this day and we will endeavour to ask them to smile!
On Wednesday 17th June we have a volunteer from Water Aid delivering our whole school assembly. We welcome Roger Brown to The Hayes and thank him for his time.
Please bring in your cakes on Wednesday 17th June for tomorrow’s water aid fundraising cake sale today, thank you. Children will collect these by the infant entrance before and after school.
On Wednesday 17th June we are hosting our summer music concert in the school hall at 6.30 pm. This is a chance for the children who have music lessons at school to demonstrate their talents. We are really looking forward to this wonderful event.
On Thursday 18th June we are having our ‘Water Aid’ day in school in which we are inviting all children to take part in our pupil pipeline fundraising events. Thousands of schools around the country are joining together to create the longest pipeline and to help raise funds to bring water to where it is needed around the world. The children are allowed to wear an item of blue clothing if they wish. To take part they need to bring in a donation of cakes for the after school cake sale, which will take place from 3.00pm in the playground.
On Friday our Year 3 children are visiting the Horniman museum for the day. We hope they have a super day.
On Saturday 20th we are lucky to have an opportunity to fundraise for the school through the bag packing event at Tesco, Purley. If your child would like to help, please sign up on the PTA events page. Parental support is also needed between 10.00am and 4.00pm, again sign up online or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Also on Saturday 20th June it is the PTA Golf day at Farleigh Golf course, which promises to be an amazing day of fun, friendly competition ending with a meal and presentations.
