Welcome to the first post of the Summer Term and I wish it were accompanied by more appropriate weather! I hope that you all had a fabulous Easter break with your children and enjoyed the Bank Holiday weekend. In this edition, you will read about the children’s experiences of Science Week which was greeted with such enthusiasm by pupils and adults alike. It was lovely to have so many parents come to school to show how Science is used in their day to day life at work. Thanks to Mr Purser who, with Mrs Stubbings and Mrs Jolley, lead the development of Science across the school. We look forward to achieving our Primary Science Quality Mark soon!
SATs Spare a thought for the year 6 pupils who are taking their SATs next week beginning the 8th May and the adults in keeping children calm and focussed. Various rooms will be used at this time, so I should be grateful to everyone in being mindful when they are moving about the school grounds—especially between 9.00 and 12.00 thank you.
Parent Governors play a vital role in the strategic development of our school and we are seeking 3 keen individuals who would like to be part of the team. Please check the children’s book bags for the letter sent out recently to see if this is something you are able to offer us. Perhaps you need to find out more information about it and there are members of staff in school who would be happy to talk you through the time commitment needed to be able to fulfil this rewarding but demanding role.
Learning Powers The final of our 10 learning powers was introduced at the beginning of this term (Mr Jess explains about that on page 5 of the newsletter) but have you seen our new stickers? The children have started to receive these through the Golden Folder assemblies when their teachers spot them using and growing these skills as part of their learning. The aim will be to collect all 10 over time. Thanks again, to Mr Divall for his original art work and to Mrs Paxton for designing the stickers!
