A busy week to end an exceptionally busy half term! Our children in year 1 have been so focussed on their products for sale and the year 4 children have been putting the polish on their museum exhibits for parents and carers to enjoy. Mr Jess and myself have been involved in observing teaching and learning this week and continue to be impressed with the quality of learning that our pupils are enjoying: deciding who was to blame for the sinking of the Titanic, writing poetry using senses, solving open ended data problems in mathematics to name but a few! It is particularly pleasing to see the children’s level of independent learning and their ability to remain resilient when the going gets tough.
At the beginning of next half term, there will be the chance for parents and carers of children in years 1 to 5 to meet with teachers and discuss progress and attainment. Sign up sheets will be available on Monday 5th June for appointments on Monday 12th and Wednesday 14th June between 3.30 and 6.50. This is with the exception of Mrs Stubbings who will have slightly different timings due to the Primary Music Day taking place at Birchwood School on Wednesday 14th. We do hope this doesn’t inconvenience parents too much as we value the opportunity for the children to participate in further musical activities outside of Summercroft.
I know that you will be busy thinking about the General Election but please do remember to use your voting slips to elect 3 new Parent Governors for our school. I was thrilled to receive 4 nominations and look forward to the count after the half term holiday.
Finally, I wish you a wonderful half term break and look forward to welcoming you back on Monday 5th June at 8.50am. Many thanks for your continued support and enthusiasm for all things Summercroft!
