12th October 2018

Term is underway!

This time last week, Year 5 were returning from their three-day trip to Kingswood activity centre in Norfolk. Arriving back at 6.30 Friday evening, I don’t think I have ever witnessed a group of children alight from a coach with so much energy and enthusiasm. As the children waited for their cases to be off-loaded, they sang / chanted all the songs they had learnt at the camp fire Thursday night. Many parents confessed that their children didn’t stop singing all weekend! Obviously, a trip of this nature takes much planning and organising. I’m sure you will join me in thanking Miss Maxwell and her team (Mrs Halil, Mrs Davies and Mrs Shelford) for giving the children such a great experience. Year 5 will be doing a Kingswood assembly to the school on Wednesday 17th October in the Junior Hall at 9.00am. Parents of children in Years 4 and 5 are invited to this event.

Two other important dates for everyone’s diaries are:

  1. The school Disco on Friday 26th October: Infants from 3.30-5.00pm and Juniors from 5.30-7.00pm.

  2. The school Christmas Fete on the afternoon of Saturday 8th December.

If you are able to help at either of these events, or wish to run a stall at the fete, please give your name to the school office.


Parental Support

Thank you for continuing to support your child with their reading and homework, and for ensuring they attend school regularly.


Remembrance Week

The first week back after half term will be ‘Remembrance Week’, when, as a school, we will be learning about Armistice Day. Optional half term homework is to try and find out about your family and the role they played during either World War I or II. A record sheet will be sent home on Thursday 25th October, but please feel free to present your homework in any way you like. J


Year 6 Secondary Transfer

All forms for Year 6 pupils applying for secondary school places must be submitted by 31st October. However, we recommend that you submit your form by Friday 26th October just to be on the safe side. If you require help with this, we will be opening the ICT suite at school on Tuesday 23rd October from 9.00-9.30am.


Attendance figures from 5th September to 12th October

Our attendance at the moment is:96.41%.
