Message from Mrs. Castell
What a wonderful day we have had celebrating the Coronation in school! The children's crowns looked absolutely amazing. Congratulations to Lottie, Mabel D, Samuel I, Artie L, Hettie and Joe P for their winning creations. We held a special assembly this morning with a coronation ceremony and we all sang the National Anthem. The weather prevented lunch on the playground, but we still held a street party style lunch with takeaway boxes of fish and chips and a special coronation cupcake!
We appreciate how useful Whatsapp groups are for parents to communicate between themselves, but this week we have dealt with a number of communications from parents querying incorrect information that was circulating in a group. Please refer to our newsletters, websites and numerous reminders on ParentMail for the correct information.
3 Tees Cricket
Miss Wakeling and Mrs Scott-Simons are so proud of the twelve Year 2 children who attended the 3 Tees cricket competition at Parkwood Academy on Wednesday. Both teams played incredibly well, displaying great skill and sportsmanship as well as proving to be fabulous team players. Both teams won 4 out of their 5 matches (there were only 2 runs between the game they had to play against each other!) resulting in an overall 1st and 3rd place, as it all comes down to who gets the most runs! Our winning team will now move on to next week’s area final at Writtle Cricket Club. There was an amazing atmosphere at the competition and we thank those of you who were able to come along and support the children - it’s such an exciting game to watch! Well done to all of you - you were amazing!
If anyone is able to offer help to install our library blinds, we would be very grateful! We have dual blinds which offer privacy and blackout functionality but they are a little complicated to put up. Is there someone out there that can help us?
As part of our commitment to developing vocabulary with our children each class will be choosing a word of the week and we will share one with you. This week's word is "celebrate", chosen by Parrots class. We would be grateful if you would discuss this and use this with your children.
Attendance this week was 95.4% compared to our school target of 96%.
Enjoy the Coronation and the Bank Holiday weekend!
