I am delighted to be able to share the news that Mr Carter’s wife gave birth to baby May Carter on Wednesday 9th May. Both mum and baby are doing really well and I am sure you will all join me in sending love and best wishes to Mr and Mrs Carter and big brother, James.
The Year 4 children had a fantastic time at Burwell House and maintained our high expectations of behaviour while they were away; I know the staff were very proud of them all. They made the most of the lovely weather and enjoyed all the different activities on offer. I’d like to thank all the staff who went on the trip (Mrs Brewer, Miss Jameson, Mrs Hogan, Mrs Burns, Mrs Gapper and Mr Gapper) for making it such a fun experience for the children and for giving up their time to make sure the children enjoyed themselves. We are very fortunate to have such dedicated staff! I am sure both the staff and children will be looking forward to an early night on Friday.
We wish our Year 6 children the best of luck for next week as they will be working hard on their SATs. They are all well prepared for the national end of Key Stage 2 tests having displayed all of our learning powers over the past few months to ensure they can do their best on the day. We have no doubt they will all shine and do themselves and the school proud.
Thank you to the PTA who have organised another successful fundraiser with the Sponsored Bounce today. It is always a highlight on the children’s calendar and they thoroughly enjoyed bouncing and running the gauntlet of the obstacle course. Thank you to everyone who has sponsored the children; we look forward to hearing from the PTA how much was raised. We are so grateful for the hard work and dedication they provide to make all the events so successful.
We are all looking forward to our Royal Wedding celebrations next Friday (18th May). The ice cream van has been booked and Mary and the kitchen staff have put together a special menu for the day so fingers crossed the weather holds and we can enjoy an afternoon on the field dressed in red, white and blue.
I hope you have another lovely weekend and fingers crossed the warm and sunny weather stays with us for a while longer.
