Newsletter Issue 32
Although it may not have felt much like summer that's half of summer term done. The children have been amazing, as ever, getting back into the rhythm of the school day, and all of us are welcoming the gradual return of some of the activities we all love and have missed so much.
Last year's year 6 sadly missed out on school journey and, although we did manage to get them all back into school for the last few weeks of term, some other key events. This year's cohort have missed a term in school but they are going on a 5 day residential trip to the Isle of Wight during the first week back after the break. I'm sure they will have a wonderful and memorable time, thanks go to Ms. Good fellow and Mr. Pitchers for giving up their week to accompany them. This will be our last trip to the Isle of Wight, spiralling costs now make this too expensive in my view and we are exploring cheaper options going forward.
There has been some wonderful work going on for class assemblies and performances. I feel that this immersion in topics and ideas really deepens learning and understanding, and while it's a shame that we haven't been able to invite you in as guests to share these with us, I'm sure you'll agree that the sharing of these via video is very worthwhile. Well done to all involved!
Class teachers are working hard to get trips and visits organised during June and July. Thank you for your support for these. A group are going to attend the Royal Horticultural Show at Hampton Court this again, after missing out last year (check out the pictures in this newsletter). We're really looking forward to next half term, so much to cram in!
Have a lovely half term break, remember Monday 7th June is an INSET day and that school restarts on Tuesday 8th June.
