Newsletter 36 – 14th July 2017
This is our final newsletter of this academic year! I cannot believe how fast another year has flown by! This has been a year full of exciting enrichment opportunities as well as a year where children have made excellent progress in their learning. My thank you to all the staff for all their hard work and for putting their heart and soul into everything they do; to our parents for your continued support in helping us give your child the very best education we can; to the governors for their continued support and challenge of myself and our team; and last but not least to our children – you amaze us every day, make us smile and extremely proud!
It just leaves me to wish you all a wonderful holiday with your families and we look forward to welcoming you back at school on Wednesday 6th September!
End of Term Arrangements
We have our Achiever’s Service on Thursday 20th July at 2:30pm and then our Leaver’s Service on Friday 21st July at 11am. Both services will take place in Church. Parents of year 6 pupils are welcome to stay for lunch after the leavers’ service and then we will register children before finishing at 1:30pm. We hope you will be able to join us for these services of celebration!
Whole School Photo
Copies of the whole school is available to view and order from the School Office at £15 each. Orders need to be in by Monday 17th July for delivery before the end of term. Please note that pupils in year 6 will not receive whole school photos as they will receive their own yearbook instead.
On Wednesday Class 4 performed a very special version of the production ‘Oliver’. There were tears, laughter and gasps from the audiences as they enjoyed the fabulous performances of the children. Every single child gave their performance 150% and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The pride, confidence and talent was amazing! My thanks to all the staff who supported the children – what a show!
Your child will bring home their annual school report today. Please ensure that you complete the slip to say that you have seen the report and there is an opportunity for comments. Staff will be available to meet with parents who have any further questions about their child’s report and dates are on the acknowledgement slip.
Duckling Competition Winning Names!
Felix Ford has brought in to school the pair of wild mallard ducklings he's been hand-rearing.
They were at the summer fair with a competition to choose their names - and then came into reception on Monday afternoon to meet class 1 who also chose their 2 favourite suggestions....
The bigger one is to be called 'Lillie' as suggested by Izzy Cox and the little one 'Cutie' which was Annie Boon's entry.
(I'll bring in the list of names which is fun - Quackers and Cheese a good one!)
Mad Hair Day
It may be the last week of term next week but we never stop trying to change our world for the better. Chaise in Class 2 will be chopping off her lovely locks in order to raise money for the Princess Wigs charity. As some children from Symondsbury have done this before, we thought we would have a ‘Mad Hair (or hat) day’ and children can donate £1 to have wacky hair for the day! It could certainly be interesting!
Our attendance award
Congratulations to class 1 who won the award this week – keep up the hard work!
Stars of the week
Congratulations to our stars of the week - well done you!
Class 1 Madeleine, Class 2 Connagh, Class 3 Mollie, and Class 4 Harry T & Diesel
