Thank you to Class 8, Miss Harmen and Mrs Lee for leading a fantastic assembly about The Tudors and Henry VIII this morning. We all really enjoyed their confident and humorous performance, incorporating superb acting, dancing and singing, well done to them all!
Week beginning 16th June
Coming up Next week…
We are delighted that our Breakfast Club opens at The Hayes this week. We welcome the children that are attending and hope they really enjoy their mornings. There are still some spaces available, if you would like to reserve a place for your child please ask for a pack of information from the school office. Prior to the summer holidays we will be sending out a sign up pack for people that may be interested in this facility from September onwards. This shall also be available to parents of New Reception starters at their New to Reception Evening on Tuesday 24th June.
This week our Year 1 children will be having their phonics screening at school. Please refer to the letter sent from Mrs Olley regarding further information on what this involves.
As part of our healthy schools month, on Monday 16th June our food provider Eden will be leading a Nutri-skill assembly and running workshops throughout the day for the children, to encourage the children to think about making healthy food choices.
Also on Monday we have two cricket teams from Year 4 & 5 playing in matches at Addiscombe cricket club, we wish them the best of luck.
On Tuesday 17th June and Wednesday 18th June there are vision tests in school for our Reception children.
Cliff Harris, our school photographer, will also be in school on Tuesday 17th June taking class photographs. Please could you ensure your child is wearing the correct full school uniform on this day.
On Wednesday 18th June and Thursday 19th June, The Dogs Trust are visiting the school. They will hold a series of workshops for all junior classes linked to keeping animals healthy, and lead an assembly for the whole school which will help our children to develop their respect for animals as well as themselves. They have donated their time to help inspire our children free of charge. If you are a dog lover and would like to send a donation into school, we will happily pass this on to them during an assembly. Please pass these to Mrs Meadows or to the school office.
On Wednesday 18th June some children who learn an instrument at school will perform in our Music Summer Concert for their families. We welcome everyone for a 7pm start in the school hall. Please would the children involved in this event come into school at 6.40pm. Those children who are playing the violin with Mrs Aldren need to be in school at 6.15pm for a brief rehearsal.
On Friday Safari Class will be leading our assembly. If your child is in this class and you wish to join us for this event please join us in the hall at 10.15am.
On Friday afternoon it is our school open afternoon, from 2-3pm. Please do try to come in a look at your children’s learning. They are always keen to share with you and show you what they have achieved. May we politely request that you do not bring buggies or younger siblings to this event as fitting 30 children and 30 parents into our classrooms is a challenge in itself! During our open afternoon our food provider, Eden, will be doing a taster event for parents in the school hall and this will be a fantastic opportunity for you to ask any questions from Eden staff about school meal provision.
On Saturday 21st June is the PTA Golf day at Farleigh Golf course.
Please could we remind you that the school gates are set on a timer to open automatically at 8.30am. Please do not drop off your children earlier than this as the office may not be manned and there may be nobody available to open the gates for your child. We will not be opening the school gates earlier than 8.30am.
Lastly, please do bring your Sainsbury’s vouchers in to school if you have any at home as we will shortly be counting these and looking at what we would like to purchase for the children. Thank you to those of you who have sent in your BHF jump rope skipping sponsorship money, if you haven’t already, please hand this in to the school office.
Thank you for your ongoing support, we hope you have a lovely weekend.
