Newsletter 2nd July 2010


Earlier this week our Key Stage 2 children were absolutely amazing as they entertained audiences with their ‘RATS!’ production. We certainly have some fantastic talent amongst our pupils and no doubt some stars of the future! We need to say a very big thank you to Mr Parker and the Key Stage 2 Team for putting such a great production together. Thanks especially to the children, for their commitment and hard work, and to all their parents, friends and families who brought the performances alive with their audience support. The Courier took a photograph of some of the children in costume, so hopefully this will be published in the paper. The HSA have also recorded the production and copies will be available to order through them soon.

Everyone should have received a letter with regard to Arts Week – Come to the Caribbean. The letter requested volunteers to support activities and help to make the week a fantastic experience for all. If you have any time to spare and would like to get involved in what promises to be a great week, please speak to your child’s class teacher or send a note indicating the times you would be available. Class teachers will get back in touch to make arrangements. If anyone has any Caribbean connections please let us know as we would love to incorporate ideas into the week.

There will be an initial Sharing Assembly on Friday 9th July at 2.30pm to which parents are invited. This will just be a brief sharing of some of the things that the children have done during the week.

Our main celebration will be our Open Evening on Weds. 21st July (3.15-4.15pm and 6.30-7.30pm). Caribbean food will be served, some children will be performing their dances and all of the art work will be on display.

On Wednesday 30th June, the children all ‘moved up’ for the day. This gave them all the opportunity to spend the day with their new teacher. Our current Year 6 all spent the day at their new secondary school. Children also had the opportunity to meet with Mrs Verity Clark who joins our Key Stage 2 team. Verity will be joining us in September to teach Year 5.

The Extended Services Summer Holiday Activities are available to all children. If you have not received a booking form please contact the office for a copy. The activities available are varied and suitable for children aged 5 and upwards. To avoid disappointment we suggest that you complete the booking form and return it to us with the relevant payment as soon as possible.

Please note the important information on the reverse of this letter about the Key Stage 2 Sports Day. We hope that you are able to join us on Thursday 15th July 2010. F&KS1 will be having their Sports morning at school that day too and parents are again welcome to join us.

Some children from Y2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 will be performing in the Intercultural & Creative Arts Festival at the Spa Centre on Thursday 8th July at 6.30pm. They are busily rehearsing an Indian-influenced dance entitled 'Friendship' and we wish them luck for Thursday's performance.   To download a copy of the full newsletter click here.
