Dear Parent/Guardian,
This term has proved to be as busy and as successful as ever for adults and children alike. Amidst
a focus on learning and every pupil achieving their best in the core subjects, we are also very
pleased with the artwork, the sporting achievements and the further development of many
personal skills pupils in Year 5 and 6 have shown. World Book Day saw some wonderful pictures
taken of children reading in an unusual place-for example: in an airplane cockpit, a shower, a fire
engine and at Trafalgar Square! Hopefully this has inspired our children to read a new author or
series of books and understand just how important reading is.
Thank you for the time and support you have given our children with their reading, spelling and
other home-learning as well as revision for the Year 6 pupils. The impact of your support is highly
significant and very much appreciated. The end of key stage two national tests (SATs) for Year
6 pupils will take place during the week beginning May 11th and the internal tests for Year 5
pupils during the week beginning June 22nd. All children need to be in school every day for these
The Summer term is going to be another busy term, packed with exciting opportunities for our
pupils. Events include: the Year 6 residential to Whitemoor Lakes and a themed, activity week for
our Year 5 pupils during week beginning 8th June, entitled ‘Hazards’. On Friday 5th June there will
be a trip for Year 5 children to begin their activity week learning (details to follow). On
Wednesday 29th April at 7pm there will be an information evening for parents of Year 6 pupils
regarding the residential. It is advisable that all parents attend. This term will also include the
usual events such as sports day- 22nd June; Arts Week- week beginning 29th June; a visit to
Moulton school for Year 5 on Wednesday 1st July; and a leavers’ service and party for the pupils
at the end of this year. As with other years, we plan to arrange a special performance by Year 6 to
allow parents and staff to enjoy these talented young people before they leave us.
Ensure that during these summer months your child has a plastic water bottle in school each day to
allow regular drinks of water. All children can use the chilled filtered water to refill their bottles.
It is also advisable that children wear a cap or similar sun protection when outside; please make
sure that these items are named.
Do not hesitate to come into school and arrange to see your child’s teacher if you have any
questions or concerns.
Yours faithfully,
Miss Heather Fyfe
