4th June 2018
We have a busy term ahead of us starting with next week being our sports week in school. The children are to come dressed in suitable sports clothes all week however, they must be in their school sports kit on Thursday for Sports Day. There are many exciting activities planned from fencing, archery, hockey, circus skills, scootering and cooking to name a few.
There will be an opportunity for parents to join us on Friday 15th June in the afternoon for the cooking activity with ‘Roots to Food.’
The Year 6 children had a wonderful time on the Isle of Wight gaining many invaluable experiences and taking part in a vast range of activities. Thank you to Mrs Rayner for all her hard work especially with navigating, the late nights and ensuring the children were all having a great time. There are photos on the school website under latest news highlighting each day’s activities.
This term we have a wonderful whole school trip planned to the Otterden Estate where the children will learn about Livestock farming, Arable farming, Falconry, Gamekeeping and conservation, Minibeast hunting in the woods and get to play chase the gundog! My thanks go to Mr Ledger for organising this wonderful experience for the school. This will be in additional to any class trips, which the teachers are organising for this term.
Mrs Rayner has been successful in securing funding for an artist to come into school and work with all the children in the autumn term. She is going to be working to transform the quiet area into a peace garden and she would welcome any parent volunteers to support this. The school is looking to achieve the ‘Silver Arts Award’ and this will play part of the award.
We are also planning to take 30 KS2 children to be part of Young Voices at the O2 in the Spring Term. The final very exciting piece of news to share with you is that in October, years 3-6 will be going to see the show Matilda in London. The children will be learning some of the songs prior to the trip as well as studying the text as part of their English lessons and performing in school.
I look forward to a wonderful summer term.
Mrs M. Dale
