Message from Mrs. Castell
This week we continued a very busy and rewarding end of term with presentations from the NHS Education Officer and also from Writtle Library staff. Children were very excited to hear about this year's Summer Reading Challenge - Gadgeteers! All children have received a bookmark and a library card, so please try to make your way to your local library over the summer holidays. We look forward to seeing the children's stickers in September!
EYFS had their Teddy Bears' picnic at Hylands Park this week and enjoyed themselves immensely. Thank you to all of the parents who joined us!
Thank you for all of your positive comments about the annual reports and class allocations which were emailed to you on Monday. We also published our SATS results to Year 2 parents this week and will update the website shortly with our overall results, which compare very favourably to the last set of national figures in 2019. Given the challenges of the last few years, we are enormously proud of the children's achievements.
Please ensure you check the finishing date for the club your child attends. The only clubs running next week are Multi-Sports and Mini Tennis on Monday, Football on Thursday and Young Architects Group 3 on Friday. All other clubs have finished for the term.
Next Monday, 11th July, will be the last Reading Monday of the year, we look forward to seeing you. Forest School lessons have now finished for this term, as Year 2 are on a trip on Tuesday and it is Class Swap Day on Wednesday 13th, when all children will move up to their new class and spend the morning with their new class teacher.
The year group performance for EYFS takes place on Thursday 14th July at 9.30am and the celebration assembly for Year 2 will be at 9.30am on Friday 15th July. A reminder that we will hold a collection for Great Ormond Street Hospital, as the amazing staff there are currently looking after our lovely Avia in Foxes class.
For children going into Year One and Year Two only, there is an opportunity to Meet the Teacher on Tuesday 19th July at 3.20pm. Please allow us to dismiss all the children first and then you will be invited back into the building. Miss Smith, our new teacher for Turtles will be present. The new Turtles class will also meet her for our Class Swap morning.
The children break up for the summer on Wednesday 20th July at 3.10pm and return on Monday 5th September at 8.45am. Please use the calendar on our website and check our weekly newsletters for official information on dates and times of events. We are more than happy to answer any queries.
Have a lovely weekend, enjoy the sunshine!
