Week beginning Monday 17th July 2023

The final week of the school year is upon us. I know we always say time flies when you are having fun but this year really does seem to have whizzed by!

Year 6 Musical: yesterday, we really enjoyed watching our Year 6 cohort in their leaver’s performance: ‘I am an 11 year old - Get Me Out Of Here!’.  It was an amazing night and we are incredibly proud of the children they have become. They were confident, funny, acted and sang fantastically – the show was outstanding. As the lyrics state: ‘how we’ve blossomed, how we’ve grown each and every day. We’re walking tall and ready for whatever comes our way. But now we are going to be leaving, got to spread our wings and fly, though we don’t want to believe it, it’s time to say goodbye!
Some quotes from the performers:
‘An incredible performance of fun and laughter!’ (AR)
‘Amazingly all inclusive for any age!’ (AH)
‘Spectacular singing performances!’ (IS)
‘Great acting skills by all’. (MH)

We hope you enjoyed the show as much as we did and photos will be up on the Gallery of our website very soon!

Books: your children’s learning will be coming home next week (books), please can you provide your child with a carrier bag to put their books in, thank you!

Teaching Assistant: we have a full-time vacancy for teaching assistant, starting from September. Please click this link for further details.

Goodbye: it is with much sadness that Mrs Field is leaving us at the end of this term. She has worked with us at The Hayes for the last 17 years and over this period of time she has supported many children as a 1:1, a class TA and most recently through speech and language support. We will be sad to see her go.

Here is what is coming up next week…

Funday Monday: on Monday, we are having an end of term ‘fun day’ to celebrate many things – the many achievements this year, the good OFSTED report and of course to say farewell to Miss Slade. There will be some bouncy castles in school with a rota in place to ensure that all children have a chance to bounce! We will also be holding a special gathering after school in the playground for any families (old and new) wishing to say thank you and good luck to Miss Slade. Weather permitting, there will be music and a selection of sweet treats (free of charge) so that as a community, we can come together to give a positive and uplifting farewell! Past pupils and families are also welcome to join us at this event so please do let ex-Hayes community members know. Thank you to our PTA for their help in organising this event.

Year 1: Gatton Park: on Tuesday, our Year 1 children are heading out to Gatton Park. The children will have an amazing time looking at plants with some pond dipping! Please check the letter, emailed for what to wear and bring.

Wednesday: Leavers Assembly: we invite parents and carers of children in Year 6 to join us in the school hall for the Year 6 leavers’ assembly. This event has a 10:00am start. Be sure to have your tissues at the ready as we take a journey back through the children’s 7 years at The Hayes. In the afternoon, there will be a leavers barbeque event. This part of the day is for children only.

Thursday: in celebration of Miss Slade, we will have a WHOLE SCHOOL DRESS UP DAY! As we know, Miss Slade has a love of all things fancy dress and to celebrate this, we encourage all staff and children to wear a fun fancy-dress costume of their choice. Reception children are having a pirate themed day and we encourage children in Year R to come as a pirate for this event if possible! For those children who do not enjoy dressing up as much as Miss Slade does, please can come to school wearing some brightly coloured clothing instead.
On Thursday afternoon, the children will have their end of year class parties. We ask each child to bring their own party bag with party food, for themselves. STRICTLY NO NUTS ALLOWED. The children will have already had their school lunch so they do not need copious amounts.

On Friday we break up for the summer holidays at 1:30pm. There will be no after school club on this day.

We would like to thank you all for your ongoing support this year. We have had many successes to be proud of and wish you all a happy and restful Summer holiday.
We look forward to welcoming you back on September 5th 2023 at normal time.

Stay safe!
