Message from the Headteacher

Dear Parents,

Just a brief update this week. Year 6 has been at Kings for their transition week. I have seen a couple and they have loved every minute – no surprises really!

We have had a great week meeting and working in our new classes, the school looks very messy unfortunately as we are tidying every space. It has been so amazing to see Mrs Morris’ piles come out from every cupboard!!

Just a reminder that our last day is Thursday (3.30pm) and we will be starting with the leaver’s service in the Church at 9.15am. Please come along and join us if you can. It is a really important service to the children; we will be giving out the awards too.

I hope you found the reports useful? I assume from the very few parents requiring parents evening this year that the majority were happy with them.

Next week year 6 are having an overnight camp as their last event together and Years 3, 4 and 5 are having a swimming gala on Wednesday afternoon.

Have a lovely weekend.

With regards,

Mrs Hammett

Well Done To…..
