Week Beginning Monday 8th July 2019
We start this week’s bulletin with some happy news...Miss Carrier has given birth to a beautiful baby boy called Ryan Christopher. We have been passing on all of your well wishes. Thank you.
We would also like to thank all the children and families who came out in the heat to enjoy our Summer Fair last weekend. Despite the heat we had a great day and we hope to be able to confirm how much we raised for the children very soon. Thank you to all the helpers and volunteers, with out you these events would not be possible. Thank you also to our Amazing PTA who work tirelessly to plan and prepare (for months) for these events. We are very lucky! We hope you all had a great time!
Coming up next week...
As you are aware all children at The Hayes have been taking part in a class challenge with the support of Virgin Money. Virgin have given each class a loan of £10 and set them the challenge of making their money ‘grow’. All classes have come up with a business idea in which they have had to plan financially to try to make a profit. Many ideas have been discussed from selling cakes or ice lollies to painting nails or creating book marks. After school on Monday each class will have a table in the playground where they will be selling their goods as part of this challenge. After the challenge is completed the original £10 loan will be returned to Virgin and any profit made can be kept by the children in the class to spend as they see fit and buy something for their class to enjoy. With this in mind, please help to support the children’s business endeavours by bringing some loose change with you at collection on Monday. The children may want to visit each other’s stalls too! We will announce the winning class (the class who made the most profit) in next week’s bulletin. We hope the children will be able to enjoy the rewards that come from their hard work!
On Tuesday the 9th children in Year 6 will be undertaking first aid training. We feel it is important to equip them with essential lifesaving skills that they would be able to use in an emergency situation. Due to this training, there will be no Year 6 swimming taking place. Please can we also remind parents that we hold a defibrillator in school which we would willingly allow to be used in the event of an emergency in our local area.
In the afternoon we are hosting our picnic for the new Reception children joining our school in September. This will take place on the school field from 1:30pm. We are very much looking forward to meeting our new starters and giving them the opportunity to visit their new school and meet their teachers and some of their new class mates. Food will be provided for your children at this event.
On Thursday evening we have our Music is Magic Concert in which our ‘groups’ will be performing. This includes infant and junior choir and Fiddle Fiesta, ocarinas and recorders and the drumming ensemble. The children performing should meet in the music room at 5:45 wearing school uniform (no sweatshirts) and black shoes or black plimsolls. Trainers will not be allowed on the stage. We hope you can join us for this event which starts at 6.00pm.
On Friday you will receive your child’s school report. This is a summary of their achievements throughout the course of the year. We are very proud of all of our children and hope you are too. Please ensure you fill in the parental feedback slip and return this to school before the end of the term.
Some advance notice for parents of children in Year 5, Niora Armani from the local authority admissions team has been booked to lead a secondary transfer meeting at 3:20 on 12th September.
Finally we are really proud of one of our pupils who has shown a huge amount of care and consideration for others. Saskia has recently had 7 inches of her hair cut off to donate to a child with Cancer via the Little Princes Trust. She is also fundraising for the Maternity bereavement suite at Epson hospital. If you wish to make a donation to this cause to support her fundraising endeavor monies can be sent in a sealed envelope labelled SW Fundraising to the school office which will be passed on directly to the charity.
We hope you have had a great weekend.
