Message from Mrs. Castell
We are delighted to share with you that Mrs Espinosa Pardo is expecting her second child in September. She will start her maternity leave from September. Congratulations to the whole family!
We have had a very busy week with class photos, all clubs restarting and Foxes parents in for lunch. You should have had a photo card in your child's book bag to order the class photo if you wish. In the first of our celebrations for the Platinum Jubilee, the children took part in On Your Feet Britain Day 2022, an initiative led by Active Essex in which the children performed many different dances from The Queen's 70 year reign.
Coming up after the Bank Holiday weekend is Squirrels parents lunch on Wednesday 4th May (11.45) and our GB athlete visit and WISPA's Mini Marathon on Friday 6th May. Please complete your sponsor forms if you haven't already done so. Choir will commence next Tuesday, as this week I had to attend statutory training. All children are welcome to attend choir on a Tuesday lunchtime, or to try one week with no obligation to continue. The following week, we invite Year 1 and EYFS parents for Reading Mondays, but as Year 2 will be taking their SATS, Year 2 will not have Reading Monday on 9th May and this will be postponed until the following week.
Theme week - Kings and Queens
To link with the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, the week of 23rd May will be themed around Kings and Queens. On Wednesday 25th May at 8.45am, our Family Learning Time session will be based on this theme. We are planning events throughout the week, including a street party style lunch for the children on Friday 27th May, where we will ask children to wear non-uniform, something red white and blue. Thank you in advance to our caterers who will provide a special menu on that day.
The government have released guidance for parents to help with reading, which will be useful for you all:
Have a lovely bank holiday weekend. Year Two begin their SATS next week and I am sure they will all do their best.
