Message from Mrs. Castell
Turtles enjoyed their library visit this week! Thank you again to Mrs Soden for telling the children all about how the library works and how we borrow books. Visits resume again after half term.
Thursday 13th July - Year 2 Leavers' Assembly/EYFS trip
We are aware that the date change of the Year 2 Leavers' Assembly creates a clash with the EYFS trip for a few parents with children in both year groups. Please be assured that we will take the EYFS children to the trip and then if they are able to, parents can meet their children at Hylands Park after the Leavers Assembly. We try not to change any dates but were only notified of the cricket final date this week and wanted to balance the team being able to take part with all the other events going on. Due to several other events the week of 10th July, including the class swap agreed with the Junior School, we could not find another morning, so the move to 13th July was unavoidable.
Prem Aware Award
Our teachers have all been undertaking training from The Smallest Things Charity to gain a wider understanding of premature birth and possible impact on education and beyond and we hope to gain our award from the charity soon. We ask parents of new entrants if they mind disclosing if their child was premature, in order to help us identify possible needs, but if you want to make us aware of anything that you have not done already, please be assured that you can contact us in confidence.
Parking/Travel Restrictions Next Week
Due to the Creamfields festival at Hylands Park, there will be restrictions on Margaretting Road next Friday from 9am. Please ensure you leave extra time for your journey as parking may be difficult on this day. Please also visit our Community News page for details of the Ride London event which will affect local travel next weekend.
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 it with you. This week's word is "lurking", chosen by Squirrels class. We would be grateful if you would discuss this and use it with your children.
We are delighted to say that attendance this week is 96.9% compared to our school target of 96%.
Enjoy your weekend.
