Another half term holiday is upon us already, and it never ceases to amaze me as to how quickly the time goes in school!
The children have all been working very hard and I am always pleased and proud as I move around the school to witness regular examples of the children living out our School Vision.
This week we have had three 'dress up' events across some year groups and with those, it has brought a sense of 'normality' taking part in activities that were frequent and enjoyed so much prior to the pandemic. Yesterday we had our Year 4 children experiencing a European Festival of Culture! Today Year 3 children are 'Walking like an Egyptian' and Year 6's are taking part in a VE Day Celebration!. All of the outfits the children have come in wearing, are fantastic and thank you for your support with this, it really helps the children emerge themselves into their learning.
On the subject of Thank-you's I would like to send our heartfelt thanks to yourselves for the continuous support you show the school, staff and myself. I also want to say a big thank you to the staff, who work tirelessly to provide such high levels of care and education for the children here.
I would like to remind everyone of the expectation of being in school as much as possible, as attendance seems to have dropped this week. Our aim for the whole school is 96% and therefore please ensure the children are in school, it is well researched that the more children are in school the more positive the reaction to learning is.
A reminder that Monday 7th June is an INSET day and we re-open for children on Tuesday 8th June. We also have our school photographers booked in Thursday 10th June - we would like all children to come into school on the 10th June in school uniform for the photographs and not PE kit if it is their scheduled PE day, we will alter the timetable to allow for this.
Have an enjoyable half term break - I do believe we are forecast some lovely weather - and we look forward to seeing everyone on Tuesday 08th June.
Mr Le Fevre
