Learning Behaviour of the week – ‘I know how and where to get help’



Dear Parents and Carers,



Junior Sports Day


The weather held off for our junior children’s Sports Day last Wednesday – thank you to all the parents and carers who came along to support their children.


Ned’s Mindset Mission


The children (and staff!) really enjoyed our special Ned assembly last Wednesday. Yo-Yos will be on sale until the end of the day this Wednesday, 17th July.


Year 6 Performance of ‘Aladdin Trouble’


A huge well done to our Year 6 children for their wonderful performance of ‘Aladdin Trouble’ last Thursday! The children delivered their lines very clearly, the solo singing was excellent and there were so many talented actors. A big thank you goes to Mrs Matthew, Mrs Trisorio and Mrs Mulla for all the hard work they put in to making this such a success, as well as to all the parents and other relatives who came along to support the children. It was a full house!


Summer Fair


Thank you to everyone who supported our Summer Fair on Friday – it was great to see so many of you here!


I would particularly like to thank Mrs Molyneux and the School Council for all their hard work in organising the Fair and all the staff and Year 6 children for helping to run stalls. Thank you also to Mrs Richardson in the kitchen for the lovely cake and to all parents/carers for all the generous donations.


We don’t yet have a final figure (fingers are still crossed for that £1000) but will let you know in next week’s newsletter.  The winners of our various prizes were:


  • Guess the Weight of the Cake: Faizan Sattar (Eagles)
  • Guess the Teddy’s Name – Boy Teddy (Bailey) – Diba Sharif (Robins Green), Girl Teddy (Brunella) – M. Rayyan Patel (Kestrels)
  • Jar of Sweets 1 – Zarah Mohammed (Eagles)
  • Jar of Sweets 2 – Khatija Shafiq (Eagles)
  • Jar of Sweets 3 – Bilal Meetha (Kestrels)
  • Chocolate Hamper = Suhana Patel (Eagles)
  • Flowers – Mrs F Patel (Staff)


We will be selling our remaining cones of sweets (20p), biscuits (20p), buns (10p) and small soft toys (2 for 50p), bags and dreamcatchers (50p) tomorrow break time so if your child would like to buy anything please send them to school with a small amount of money tomorrow.


There are many other people to thank for their part in making the Fair such a huge success:


  • Mr Dumon for coming back to school especially to get soaked by wet sponges;
  • The Friends of St. Matthew’s with Brunel for helping out at so many different stalls;
  • All parents and staff who helped in any way!
