Term 5 - 1

Dear Parents,

 

A warm welcome back to Term 5 and the first half of the Summer Term we hope that you all had an amazing Easter break and a really enjoyable time together. It was fantastic to have such good weather and so much time!

 

On Tuesday the staff in school met for a Safeguarding update and to work on elements to promote the Christian character of the school externally in the school grounds. Hopefully you will have noticed some of the new signs as you come into the school – there are a number to add to the rest of the school grounds once they are completed. The aim is for the signs and words to give us constant reminders of both the uniqueness and Christian nature of our school community.

 

On another note today we have shortlisted candidates for the Herons Classteacher position and will be conducting formal interviews on Thursday next week. We have been fortunate enough to attract a very strong field of both experienced and less experienced candidates and I am sure that we will be able to make an appointment. The children will get to meet the candidates as they will be required to teach a lesson – in addition to some children being chosen to ask the candidates some questions. We will let you know the outcome as soon as we can.

 

With regards to the Headteacher recruitment – I have been fortunate enough to show candidates around the school and the Governors will be shortlisting next week with a view to interviewing at the beginning of May.

 

Yesterday we also held our Fourth Royal Reward Tea of the year. It was a pleasure to have tea and cakes with the 4 brilliant members of our school community. Well done to all of you!

No Certificates this week and No homework set.

 

RED HOUSE ONLY 5000 POINT REWARD

At the beginning of the year we promised that once a school house colour – red, blue, green or yellow reached the 5000 point mark they would be given a treat of their choosing. At the end of Term 4 the Red Team reached 5000 points and were asked what reward they would like – we had the usual ridiculous suggestions such as a trip to Disneyland but they settled on a non uniform/ pyjama day just for RED TEAM.

NEXT FRIDAY 28TH CHILDREN IN RED HOUSE only CAN WEAR NON UNIFORM OR PYJAMAS. YOU SHOULD BE AWARE WHICH HOUSE YOUR CHILD IS IN BECAUSE OF THE COLOUR T SHIRT THEY WEAR FOR PE. If you have any problems please ask!

 

Green Day

Green Day is set for Saturday 10th June – all parents and children welcome to spruce up the grounds. 9:30am start – finish at 12:30pm. The usual jobs involve painting, weeding, gardening, fixing, building, etc etc. FREE DOUGHNUTS AND ADULT REFRESHMENTS!

FOSS would also like to ask parents and children to help with planting pots etc. for the summer fete. If you have any seeds, cut offs or plats that you could donate we will gratefully take them off your hands.
