The Circle, Issue 89 – 07.06.2024 Welcome back to The Circle! This week we are all feeling very grateful for the sunshine. It has made the exciting activities that have been happening in school feel even more special! Thanks as always to the parents for your support with the annual camping trip and also the upcoming events such as the Grow Festival on 14th June. It would not be possible to be the community focussed school that we are, without you. Have a lovely weekend when it arrives. Best wishes, Andi and Sarah

Our Values in Action:

Rec: Joy

The children in Reception have hit the ground running this week, ready for their final term as Reception students. This week, the children have been engaged in various activities, such as drawing and labelling what they did over half-term. A highlight from this week was seeing the children engage in such imaginative play in the outside area, using their phonics skills to create signs and posters to let others know what they were doing.

Year 1: Joy

In anticipation of the camping trip, the children designed their own tents with some practical, some imaginative, features. We have been counting down the days to this trip since September so to say we are excited is a huge understatement!

Year 2: Joy

Parton class are extremely excited about the Grow Festival Event that will be happening next Friday. They are taking their role of event planners very seriously and are thinking carefully about all the things that they will have to do to make the event successful. This week they received an email from Luke Warm from Grow Festival who needed their help to boost ticket sales. The children worked hard to create story boards and scripts and then shot a fantastic promotional video as well as using computer programs to design posters to advertise the event.

We are excited to give you some more information about our Sports Day 2024! This year it will be taking place at Three Mills Green on Friday 12th July (weather permitting). The event will start at 9.30am and finish at 11.30am. All are welcome to attend!

Few points to note:-

  • There will be no seating at the event. Please bring a camping chair, stool or blanket if you would like to sit. You will be moving around a circuit, following your child.
  • If it is raining, we will try and rearrange for the hall. We will make the decision the day before.
  • Please drop off your child at the normal time, dressed in their PE kit. Please make sure they have a water bottle and are dressed for the weather e.g. sun hat, sunscreen.
  • You will then be asked to meet us at Three Mills Green if you are attending. The event finishes at 11.30 and the children will be walking back to school promptly to have their lunch.
