Please complete and return the parent questionnaire. It would be helpful if we had one returned from every parent as we really do appreciate (and try to act upon!) your feedback. If you did not receive one or need another copy please ask at the school office.
On Friday we welcomed John Massey to school with his Skipping Workshops. All children took part throughout the morning. Skipping ropes and French skipping elastic will be on sale from the school office next week at a cost of £4.00 each.
School Pick System
Thank you for your patience and co-operation over last few weeks whilst we have been trialling the new pick up system. We have decided to use our current route where you come up the path and turn right past the Junior School playground. This will reduce the amount of new pathway needed. Make sure that you also leave by this route. Please do not allow your children to play on the outdoor gym equipment on the Junior school playground.
Open Afternoon – Tuesday 5th July – 3.30pm to 5.00pm
On Tuesday 5th July we are inviting the children to bring their parents back to school from 3.30pm to 5.00pm to visit their classroom to see their learning and have an informal chat with their teacher. You can also visit your child’s new classroom and introduce yourself to their new teacher. (If your child is in Reception or Year 1). If after you have received your child’s report you feel you would like a more formal discussion, please arrange an appointment with your child’s class teacher.
Several parents have approached me with photographic evidence of cars parking illegally outside school. I have no wish to ‘name and shame’ the owners of those cars, but I am very concerned that children and parents are being put at risk by such inconsiderate behaviour.
Next Monday, 27th June is the last date for bringing in your ‘Extreme Maths’ photos. A prize will go to the photograph of Maths being done in the most interesting way.
