Dear parent/ carer
I would like to take the opportunity to thank the parents and carers who attended the curriculum design meeting in the school hall on Wednesday. It was lovely to see so many enthusiastic people keen to improve the lives of our children. It was a common sense discussion and the representatives paid considerable thought to the needs of the children in our school. We will review the curriculum again during Autumn term and look forward to welcoming other parents and carers who might have missed this opportunity. If you were unable to attend but would like to share thoughts and ideas please email the school or telephone me on 01792893682.
Thank you to the parents who have sent in outgrown school uniform, which we have recycled for our younger children. We have a rail at the front of our school entrance with a selection of uniform to choose if you need it. We understand the cost of living has increased and this is a good way to reduce, re-use and recycle. If your child has grown out of polo shirts, school dresses, skirts and jumpers that are still in good condition, please hand them into your child’s class teacher or the office. This project is helping our school community in many ways.
Thank you to Mr Civil for arranging for DR BIKE to attend school today. There were a few repairs made and a few prescriptions for recommendations! Thank you to Roger from SUStrans and Mr Ricketts our parent governor for supporting the event and getting stuck in!
A few things to remind you about over the coming weeks…
Monday June 6th and Friday 22nd July. Please put the dates in your diary and spread the word!
Learn how to manage your child’s worries in a supportive manner that fosters emotional resilience for your child. The workshop offers an opportunity to understand the science behind worry while providing practical strategies to manage worry in the home and for life outside of school. Look inside the worry cycle, understand the physical feelings of worries and how to manage them, and explore when extra support may be needed. Come along to the school on 24th May and 7th June between 2pm-3pm. We look forward to seeing you.
Please telephone the school office on 01792 893682 and select option 1 to leave a message. Mrs Seager checks these messages at 9am every day but if a message hasn’t been received you will be telephoned to ask for a reason. As you know, we have a duty of care for all children in our school. If your child is absent, we need to know where they are.
Platinum Jubilee Week
During the next fortnight, the children will be working on a project about the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. An event we will never see again! The children will be researching the commonwealth, finding out about the different countries, researching historical facts, investigating Buckingham Palace etc.
We will be enjoying a BIG Lunch/ garden party on the school field at lunchtime on Thursday 26th May. They can dress as a king/queen/princess/prince or wear something red, white and/or blue.
Auditions for TreUchaf’s Royal variety show in the style of TreUchaf’s Got talent will be Monday and Thursday next week and the grand final on Friday afternoon.
It was lovely to get back to some normality last week and welcome some new tots to our parent and toddler group. We have decided to extend the time from 9am-10.30 so pop in between this time on a Friday for a cuppa and a chat! This is a great chance to speak to other parents and prepare your little ones for school! We look forward to seeing you.
Children from Year2 to Year 6 will be participating in online tests over the next few weeks. These are available online using Hwb and are nothing to worry about! There are practice questions on Hwb so if the children log into their HWB account it will appear on the front page. These familiarisation questions are a great opportunity for you to talk through the style of questioning but they may not be pitched at the right stage for your child. Have a go with them but please do not worry. There will be no pressure from us at all and it’ll just be another way for us to look at their progress in maths and reading.
Have a lovely weekend!
