Newsletter – May 2023

With our fingers crossed for some sunshine, we have planned a very busy end to the academic year and we hope that you will be able to join us for some of the events.

Pink day

On Friday 19th May we will have a non-uniform day and ask the children to wear something pink in support of our staff team who undertaking The Moonwalk to raise awareness and funds for the breast cancer charity. We will have a donation bucket in the school office and I am sure that you will join me in wishing the team the very best of luck.

Sports Days

We are going to organise our sports days a little bit differently this year. Weather permitting, we would like to invite parents to picnic with your children either before or after their races – please see below for exact times and dates.

Breakfast Club

Please remember to book your child’s place at Breakfast Club using the online Arbor system. For safety reasons there is a limit on the places available and if a child is not booked we may not be able to accommodate them. If you have difficulty with booking a place, please call the school office to check availability and they will be happy to help with any IT issues.

 School Photographs

The school photographer will be visiting on Thursday 22nd June for individual and class photos.

Open afternoon drop in

On Wednesday 28th June we would like to invite you to visit your child’s class at any time between 3.30 – 4.45 pm to see their workbooks for this year. The teachers will be available for general discussion, but if you have a particular matter regarding your child, please arrange a separate appointment through the school office.

Multiply maths events

Multiply is a government funded organisation that offers adults free maths courses with opportunities to gain qualifications, and build confidence in using numbers at work or in everyday life. As part of their work, they are offering games nights for families to show how maths skills can be developed at home through play. They will also be providing parents with children in Year 3 and 4 with an opportunity to attend a workshop which will support in helping children with their maths homework. Look out for the flyers that we will send home with the children and then book your place through the Arbor system after half term.
