Welcome back everyone to, at last, the warmer summer term. The children have returned to school with a lovely more mature attitude to their learning and have already completed a week of research about ‘Our Queen’ and written some good Non-chronological reports.
Welcome to term 6. First and foremost, I would like to say how proud I am of the children; they have worked so hard this year and this has enabled them to tackle Key Stage One reading and maths tests with enthusiasm, confidence and well-deserved success. We will be continuing to move forward with high expectations this term so that children continue to extend their skills. A summative assessment of writing across the year to date will take place on the 21st June. Below is an overview of learning and development. Please do not hesitate to speak to me if you have any further questions.
On Wednesday 29 June Les Poires (Class 6) have the opportunity to visit Dover Museum and then gain real life experience of castle life at Dover Castle itself.
After-school swimming lessons
Due to a high demand, both after-school swimming clubs on Monday and Thursday will be for Non-Swimmers. There are currently 5 spaces still available on Thursday. We will inform you if your child is in the Monday or Thursday group.
Welcome to term 5. Later this term children in year 2 will take statutory assessment tests in reading, writing, maths, spelling and grammar; it is therefore really important that they continue to attend school every day and that the children have had plenty of sleep so that they are fresh and ready to learn. Below is an overview of learning and development. Please do not hesitate to speak to me if you have any further questions.
Pupils in Key Stage 1 are given fruit or vegetables during morning break. Some pupils from Key Stage 2 have asked if they could bring their own fruit or vegetables during morning break.
In a response to this pupil request the school has decded that KS2 pupils are welcome to bring in their own fruit or vegetables to eat during morning break.
As the school is a Healthy School no other snacks are allowed to be eaten at morning break.
Thank you for your continued support.
