Dear Parent and Carers

This Week in School

I am happy to say that the improvement in the weather this week meant that we could hold both our KS1 and KS2 Sports Days. It was wonderful to see so many parents in attendance and Mr C was very pleased with both events. It is nice to have a little competitive spirit at our sports days, but the children are reminded that the main aim of the day is taking part enthusiastically and having fun. The Year 6’s provided lots of support and helped the afternoons to run smoothly. It was great to see so many parents taking part in the parent races, and perhaps the

A lot of planning goes into organising these afternoons, and I would like to say a big thank you to Mr C and his trusty Year 6 helpers for their efforts. It is always lovely to finish these afternoons with an ice lolly for the children as a reward for their positive participation. We hope you enjoyed the events as much as we did! Mrs Bradshaw and Mr White have kindly offered to review the photos taken of the sports days and post them to a new Events page on the  google classroom. A joining code will be sent out to parents next week with a classroom code so your child can join and view the photos.

Year 2 Class Assembly- Wednesday 26th June

A reminder for our Year 2 parents you are warmly invited to come along to watch what is promising to be a fantastic class assembly next Wednesday. Doors open at 2.50pm for a 3pm start.
