Meeting for Parents/Carers of children moving from Nursery to Reception in September23May2019

The Foundation Unit is pleased to announce they would like to invite the parents/carers of the children who will be moving up into Reception class’ in September into school to attend a brief meeting on Thursday 23rd May. You should please see Miss Kelly to book your meeting time which will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. During your meeting, Miss Kelly will discuss your child’s progress including their expected end of FS2 profile score and their next steps. We would like you to come to your meeting through the main reception via the Bondfield Close entrance. Remember that the Hough Lane gate is closed through the school day. Children should attend their normal session at their usual times. We appreciate that this might feel a little awkward as this might involve extra coming and going, but this is the best way to give everyone a few minutes of quality time to share your child’s progress with you. Parents of children who are staying in the nursery setting in September will be offered a separate date to attend before the end of term. We would like to see as many parents as possible although we understand some parents may have work commitments. If this is the case, please arrange to come into see us at another mutually convenient time. Thank you for your support. Miss Kelly

Y2 Tudor Day24May2019

The children are working busily in class on the run up to the Year 2 SATS. All test papers need to be completed before we break up for half term so if your child has any appointments or you have applied for any absence leave, please mention this to the class teacher so we can work around this. As you are aware, we have been studying The Tudors in class. We have decided that on the last day before the holidays, the 24th May 2019, Year 2 will hold a party day with a Tudor theme. This will be a non-uniform day. You will have the choice whether to dress your child as a Tudor king, queen, knight and so on, or they can dress in their own party clothes as modern-day royalty. All the children have already made their own crowns in school. This will not affect lunchtime, children will order a school meal as normal on the day or bring a packed lunch. We hope that you agree that this will be a lovely way to end the term and we appreciate your support. Thank you. Mrs Bowden & Miss Siddall


Year 5 - Balance bikeability03Jun2019

@ In School

We are pleased to advise that we are able to offer your child a fantastic opportunity to take part in a Bikeability cycle training course. This will take place at our school on 5 consecutive half days from 03rd June 2019 to 07th June 2019. This course is designed to give our children the skills and confidence to ride their bikes on today’s roads. Each course costs over £50 per child to provide. However, due to the help of funding, we are fortunate enough to be able to offer the course free of charge to each participating child. IF YOUR CHILD HAS ALREADY COMPLETED THE BIKEABILITY COURSE, THEY CANNOT DO IT AGAIN ON THIS OCCASION. Every child wishing to take part must have their own bike and helmet which they can bring to school on these days. We cannot take responsibility for the bikes and so ask that you make sure your child chains it up securely on the bike racks around the front of school.
