Last Week – Robins’ Assembly

A huge THANK YOU to our amazing Robins’ children for their superb assembly last  Wednesday! It was great to see a summary of lots of things they have learnt and the places they’ve been this year. It was fantastic to be able to welcome so many parents and carers into school to share the experience – thank you so much for coming.

Sports Day – Tuesday 16th July

We are hoping to hold our annual Sports Day tomorrow, Tuesday, 16th July.

We have only got one chance at this, so let’s all pray for some dry weather!

Year 6 Leavers’ Assembly – Thursday 18th July

On Thursday our Year 6 children in the Eagles and Falcons classes will be presenting their Leavers’ Service at 8.45am. Parents and carers of Year 6 children are invited to join us for this – bring your tissues! We will also be presenting the Year 6 awards at this service so that parents aren’t having to make two trips. Year 6 children who are receiving an award will have received a text letting them know.

Your child will bring home their end of year report this Thursday, including information about your child’s progress, attainment and attendance. In addition to this, Reception reports will include information about their progress towards the Early Learning Goals, Year 1 reports will include informatin about the Phonics Screening Check, Year 4 reports will include information about the Multiplication Tables Check and Year 6 reports will include their SATs results. You will also discover your child’s class teacher for September.

End of Year Prizegiving Service – Friday 19th July

On Friday we finish the year with our annual Prizegiving Service for children from Reception up to and including Year 5. This starts at 8.45am – please only attend this if you have received a text telling you that your child will be receiving a certificate or award as we really struggle with space in the hall.
