Latest from The Headteacher
Posted 30th June 2022
The Sponsored bounce went really well this week, thanks to our PTA helpers. The children really enjoyed it and hopefully we will have raised some more funds to complete the library projects. It is not long now until they are installed in the final weeks of term. In the Autumn term, we will have some planned events when parents can come in to see the new libraries and what the money you have helped to raise has achieved.
Our attention now turns towards our Summer Fair next week – 9th July. This is always a great day with plenty of fun to be had but it does take a gargantuan effort to pull it all together so we need your help please with a few things.
Please can you fill a jar (with a lid) with little treats? You can do more than 1 if you would like to! You can include sweets, stationary, small toys, party favours etc. Believe it or not, Pinterest has a jarbola board if you want to get really competitive about it. Please bring in your filled, lidded jars anytime between Monday 4th – Friday 8th July. Hand them to class teachers who will gather them up in school for the PTA.
|Thursday 7 July (next week) is Bring a Bottle & Non-Uniform Day|
|Pupils can come in their own clothes if they bring an unopened/unused bottle of something for our Bottle on a String stall. It can be a bottle of sauce, bubble bath, beer, wine – anything that is new and unused in a bottle. There will be collection boxes on the patios outside the classrooms to put them in please.|
|Volunteers to help out on the day.|
|We need an army of parent helpers please on the day. Look out for a sign up board going up outside the main entrance soon. You may not be able to help out all day but perhaps you can do a few hours to help set up or tidy up?|
Finally, please spread the word among families and friends to come along – the more the merrier.
Catch Up Tutoring
The government has provided some more funds for catch up work in schools. This additional funding came late in the academic year, as a bonus so it has been a challenge to ensure the funds are used before the end of the academic year. However, we have managed to secure three school-based tutors – Miss Gundu, Miss Glynn and Mrs Croxton – to provide tutoring from Years 1-5 during this final half term. Class teachers are putting forward pupils who have shown in their class work and assessments that they would benefit from some small group or one-to-one work with the tutors on maths and English. If you’d like to know more about this, please stop by for a chat with me when I’m out and about at drop off and pick up.
