We have enjoyed an incredibly busy few weeks since the start of this school year. There have been lots of exciting creative learning experiences taking place throughout the school including trips to the local market, moonlight walks in the school grounds and learning to cross the road safely in our local community. Most recently last week, our Y4 class enjoyed an exciting trip to the British Museum in London to support their learning about the ancient Egyptians and our Y5 class are heading off on another exciting adventure to an Anglo-Saxon village tomorrow!
I was thrilled to open a letter from Nick Gibb, MP and Minister of State for School Reform, congratulating us on the very high standard that our children achieved in the phonics screening check last year. Our results last year place us in the top 2% of all primary schools in the country.
We are all working very hard to improve the achievements and learning outcomes for our children and it is very encouraging to receive acknowledgement of our efforts in this way. I echo Mr Gibb’s congratulatory words to our staff and children!
Our new breakfast club opened last week for children in Y5 and Y6. It has given me great pleasure to welcome so many children each morning as they arrive at school and enjoy breakfast with their friends before their lessons start for the day. Their behaviour, attitudes and manners have been exemplary!
We will all be very busy this week preparing for our next exciting ‘Celebration of Learning’ event which will be held on Thursday 19th November at 6pm. Y6 will be opening a new exhibition, there will be a performance by our Young Voices choir and all classes from Nursery to Y6 are busy preparing their own special celebrations for learning for the evening! I do hope that you will all come along and celebrate your children’s achievements with them and I look forward to welcoming you on Thursday.
