Message from Mrs. Castell
This week we were delighted to hold induction meetings for parents of children starting in September. It is lovely to have visitors in person. Mr Taylor, Headteacher of the Junior school joined us for assembly on Monday as part of the getting to know you process for Year 2's transition to the Junior School. We have given details of the Year 3 teachers to our Year 2 parents and I am also now in a position to confirm our Infant School teachers for September.
Foxes - Mrs Fisk
Squirrels - Mrs Giles
Parrots - Miss Wilson
Turtles - Miss Smith
Dolphins - Mrs Wilson/Mrs Scott-Simons
Sharks - Miss Wright
We are delighted to have recruited Miss Smith (pictured) to cover Mrs Espinosa-Pardo’s maternity leave. She was a student with us previously, so she already knows our school well, which is an enormous bonus! She is currently teaching in a local primary school, but will be with us for our Class Swap day on 13th July and for our Meet the Teacher session on July 19th at 3.15. This is for parents of children going into Years One and Two.
Thank you to the staff who took our Year 2 team to the 3 Tees Cricket final this week. We were delighted with our result of 6th place in the county overall! When you consider that 400 schools took part in the heats, it is amazing. Congratulations to our incredible cricketers!
The practice for Sports Day went brilliantly today and we very much look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday morning. Please remember to read ask your child which team they are in and have a read through our Sports Day Plan 2022! Unfortunately due to Sports Day there will be no Forest School lessons for Dolphins class on Tuesday.
Each year group is rehearsing for their end of year assembly. A reminder of the dates - Friday 1st July for Year 1, Thursday 14th July for EYFS and Friday 15th July for Year 2. Each assembly starts at 9.30am and should take no more than 1 hour. Due to space in the hall we can only permit 2 spectators per family and unfortunately no younger siblings. Further details will be published closer to the time.
All year groups have a school trip planned this term, please ensure that you have consented via ParentMail and made a contribution to the cost of the trip if requested.
All children are due to receive a special commemorative book about the Platinum Jubilee today, please look out for it in book bags! There are no awards today due to our Sports Day practice this morning, but our usual Friday celebration assembly returns next week, if your children have any achievements they would like to share.
Thank you so much for your donations for the Summer Fayre today. There is just one week to go! WISPA and WJSPA would be delighted if you can spare any time, even half an hour, to help set up, man a stall or clear away at the end. We hope to raise much needed funds for our library. Raffle tickets have been sent home today, please ask at the office if you need more, or you can buy them at the Fayre.
Enjoy the remainder of the sunshine today and have a good weekend.
