Head of School Update - Friday 6th May 2022

Welcome to this week's Weekly Update!


Our pupils in Year 1 have been protecting their castle from the siege. Their learning journey for this term is, 'Who is the King of the castle?' and have been learning about how castles were protected from invaders. They certainly got in to role perfectly. They are very much looking forward to their visit to Bodiam Castle, later this term.


We are really looking forward to our Platinum Jubilee party. This is taking place on Friday 27th May (last day of term). We will be hosting a 'fish and chip' picnic on the field - fingers crossed for good weather. Pupils can bring their own packed lunch to school should they wish to. All pupils are invited to dress up in something white, red or blue (or all three) for the day, or as our very own Queen Elizabeth II, should they wish to. 


Well done to all of this week's certificate winners. Our full list of this week's 'Stars of the Week' can now be found on the weekly bulletin. As always, some fantastic reasons for our Stars this week. Well done to Y3 Ashe Class and Y5 Pankhurst Class, who are leading the way in this term's Attendance Challenge, and to Oscar in Year 2, who had the lucky number in the 100% Attendance Raffle.


Please check out this week's Bulletin, which includes our weekly report from The Hive. Some new dates and key events have been added, and we will continue to update these.


Finally, our fantastic Year 6 pupils will be taking their end of key stage assessments across four days next week. We are all very proud of them!


Have a great weekend.
