Parent Consultations and Questionnaire
As you should know next Wednesday and Thursday are our second Parent/Carer-Teacher consultation evenings. If you have not yet returned your letter requesting a day and time please do so as soon as possible. During the meeting, as well as discussing your child’s learning in school, you will be given their latest assessments in reading, writing and maths and how well they are progressing towards their end of year targets. During the evening you will also have the chance to fill in a questionnaire on how we can further improve different aspects of our provision; this year, as well as questions about our school we are asking your views on how we might improve communication and whether we should change our policy on school uniform. Thanks in advance for your feedback.
Due to Parents’ Evenings there will be no Gym Clubs next week and no Y4 Football club on Thursday. Y5 and Y6 football clubs on Tuesday and Friday will take place as normal.
Marie Curie Yellow Fair
Thanks to all the school community who came together to make last Friday’s Yellow Fair such a success. We had a beautiful display of daffodils in pots and a huge variety of yellow wares for sale. A total of £742.00 was raised for the Marie Curie charity- a huge thank you to everyone who helped reach this brilliant total and a special thank you to Mrs Lewis for co-ordinating the whole event so well. A mention must also be given to the Year 6 children who contributed all of the profits from their wonderful newspaper Spring Bank News, made in their lunch hour, to the charity: well done!
World Book Day Events/ Oxfam Writing Competition
We have had a brilliant week for reading and writing. Children in school have written funny stories for the Oxfam writing competition; Mike Bird will come into school next Thursday after having had a good laugh reading all the entries and will name the winners. All classes have also been making an ever lengthening Book Worm to curl around the door to their classroom. The bookworm is made of circular book reviews of books read by the children. The class with the most reviews won and the result, announced by Mrs Ward today, was: in third place Y5, in second place Y3 but in first place with an amazing 150 different reviews Year 6. Well done to them and thanks to Mrs Ward for her excellent introduction and organisation of this event.
