Week beginning 5th June 2023

Well done to Safari class who led our wonderful assembly on Thursday all about the jungle. We were blown away by their confidence. All children learned their lines and delivered them clearly. We were delighted with their poetry and facts but particularly enjoyed seeing their ‘jungle boogie woogie!’ Thank you to all the parents who joined us for this event.

Geography Day: well done and thank you also to Mrs Boylan, our Geography Leader, who organised our amazing ‘Around the world in 14 classes’. The school was buzzing with excited children on Thursday, all clutching their passports, as they moved around the school to learn about different countries in the world. Thank you also to you the parents for donating food items so the children could learn about the culinary delights in different cultures (and adults), what a feast they had! Why not ask them about their new knowledge? Which was their favourite country and why?
That was the best day!'; 'Food tasting- awesome!'; 'I cannot wait to get to the next country!' Thank you to Mrs Boylan, our Geography leader- superstar!

Open Afternoon: we hope that those of you who joined us for our Open afternoon today enjoyed the opportunity to look at your children’s books and talk to them about their learning. We are proud of the children’s achievements and the progress they have made so far this year. With half a term still to go, the sky is the limit!

Happy Holiday! We break up today for the half term break and would like to thank you for your ongoing support this term. We wish you a restful week and look forward to welcoming you back to school on Monday 5th June at normal time unless your child is in Year 6.
Year 6 Residential to the IOW: Year 6 children will need to be in school by 8:00am at the latest, on Monday 5th when the coach will arrive to take them to their residential journey to the Isle of Wight. We know they will be wonderful ambassadors of our school and wish them a happy visit where we hope they will make memories to last a life time! Their excitement is already palpable. As always, these opportunities would not be possible if staff were not willing to accompany the children and we thank Miss Slade, Mrs Sinclair, Mrs Derodra, Miss Moll and Mrs Deighan, who have all agreed to accompany the children on this visit. Whilst Miss Moll is away, Class 10 will be taught by Miss Fidge (current Year 6 teacher).

World Environmental Day: when we return to school we will be celebrating the ‘World Environment Day’ and Mrs Farr will be leading a whole school assembly for the children to teach them about looking after our amazing planet.

Year 5: on Wednesday, the children in Year 5 will be attending a visit to the Shree Ghanapathy Temple. Parents of children in this year group have been emailed separately about this visit. If you are able to volunteer to help on this visit, please let your child’s teacher know asap. Thank you.

Multiplication Test: the children in Year 4 will soon be taking their statutory Multiplication Tables Check, this is to determine whether or not the children are able to fluently recall their timetables up to 12. Further information for parents is available here:  Multiplication tables check: information for parents (text version) - GOV.UK ( If your child would like to practice for this check over the half term break, Sound Check on Timetables Rockstars provides a very similar experience for the children (25 questions with 6 seconds to answer). Log in details have been sent home for this via your child.

Class 1: on Friday 9th June, the children in Class 1 have a Mufti Day (own clothes day). This is a prize that was one in a PTA event.

Lastly, we are currently recruiting for a Teaching Assistant. Vacancies are advertised on the school website and the closing date is Tuesday 6th June 2023. Please do spread the word!

Have a lovely break.
