Newsletter ~ Year 5 Summer 2018

Dear Parents and Carers,

This is our last blog of the school year and it is a celebration of all the wonderful things that your children have achieved with us.

Well done to the Year 6 children who showed great resilience and determination during the recent SATs and were rewarded with fantastic results. They were the best results of the last 3 years! From this great starting point, they will continue to make good progress in their secondary schools. We wish them success in all of their future endeavours.

The end of the year is always a time to say goodbye, not only to children who are leaving us but also to members of staff who are moving on to new challenges. This year, we are saying goodbye to Mr Burt, Mrs Webber, Mrs Audus and Mrs Righini-Nisbet. They have all played a key role in your children’s lives and we wish them well.

We will all be saying a sad goodbye to Mr Charman as he retires but thank him for all of the hard work he has done to keep the school running since he joined us in 2001.

We also wish Mrs Golding good luck as she awaits the arrival of her new baby and welcome Mrs Williams and Miss Birks back after their maternity leave.

September promises to be a new start for us all with new challenges and success waiting for us.

Have a happy and safe holiday, I look forward to seeing everyone in September,

Mrs Zoë Dudley (Head of School)

Good Learners Assembly ~ Friday 13th July

In an important celebration assembly, children from across the school were awarded certificates for their hard work in lessons across the curriculum.

Some were awarded praise and certificates for their hard work counting in Maths, for their skills in addition and multiplication and for their diligence in never giving up and working hard with others.

Equally, some children were awarded certificates for their resilience and stickability, with tasks that were hard and needed children to persevere. One pupil had even written a letter to their teacher, asking if they could help others in the class in the role of a “classroom assistant” such was their keenness to help their classmates to improve! Another was presented with an award for stepping in at the last moment to save her class assembly after another child wasn’t available to play their part.

Housepoints this week have not been collected, as Year 6 are in Wales!

Wales Update Number 4!

Hello to all from Wales again!

Well, another action packed day, filled with hiking, more canoeing and the ever treacherous cave walking!

As you can see from the pictures, spirits are still high as we approach the final day of the adventure, with children eager to give their all on the final activities. IT has been a glorious day with the weather again being kind to us, which was ideal for the activities in today’s line-up!

Last night saw evening activities include a games night, with children taking part in jenga, cards, dominoes and twister, as well as a full table tennis tournament!

Miss Trenchard’s canoe group were singing pirates of the Caribbean theme tune whilst paddling at top speed (faster than the other groups we might add!)

Once again, we are forced to report that the Welsh wilderness has again taken a toll on Mrs Landon, who fell over in the cave walking and banged her knees – whilst trying hard not to look like Michael Jackson’s thriller dance in the process!!

Whilst amidst all of this madness, Mrs Sivier’s hiking group walked 2.6 miles in 3 hrs 10 mins up the side of a large Welsh mountain (well, a hill actually)! Let’s just say we smashed the Resi award for hill climbing!

Sadly, we are already now approaching a final sleep before the journey home tomorrow, after a journey to Big Pit along the way…

Bye for now, from all in the Welsh Hills!
