Newsletter 37: 19th July 2019

What a week it’s been! We’ve had so much fun with a show, a singathon, a teddy bear’s picnic and even a wedding! It is always so lovely at the end of term to have fun together and enjoy each other’s company.

Here Comes the Bride

The church bells were ringing this week as Year 1 and 2 joined Reverend David and Reverend Alan at St John’s Church for the Dame Tipping Wedding. The children had a fun filled and enriching experience learning about long-lasting relationships as part of our RSE curriculum. The children enjoyed planning the day; making cakes and confetti bags for the special occasion. A big thank you to Reverend David and Reverend Alan. 

What a Treat!

I was blown away by Class 5 and 6’s fabulous performance of ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ on Wednesday. The show was enhanced by the fabulous setting at the barn, complete with a light up rainbow tree! I was so impressed by the standard of acting, singing, dancing and comedy and the children seemed to really enjoy performing in the show. Many thanks to Mrs McCormack for making it all happen.

Tipping’s Got Talent

This year’s Dame Tipping talent show was the best ever! From singers, to dancers, magicians to cup stackers, our children really do have it all. The back stage team Leah and Faye and the hosts,

Lou Lou and Nicole made sure that the show ran smoothly. As a judge, I didn’t get a vote, but if I did, I don’t think I could have chosen between all the fantastic acts. The children did vote, however, and the results were as follows:

1st Place- Zachary, Chinaza, Tahir, Jack Robinson and  Paul with their street dance to ‘Old Town Road’

Joint 2nd Place: Emily Harris with her amazing song and dance from ‘Matilda’ and Aaron with his fabulous magic show.

3rd Place: Sapphire with her wonderful rendition of ‘All I Want is a Room Somewhere’.

Singathon

It is certainly true that singing is good for the mind, body and soul and we’ve experienced that today.

We’ve had karaoke, live music and some performances from our own talented singers. Thank you to everyone who has sponsored their children for this event. We have raised over £440. A special mention goes to Charlie Lockwood’s dad, who raised £140 from his colleagues at the DLR. Please hand in any sponsor money you have raised today, if possible.

LIFE Passports

Well done to all the children who completed their LIFE passports. I’ve enjoyed reading about the adventures you have had. These children handed in their passports: Albert, Amelia, Daniel, Elena, Ellie, Fern, Harry Haley, Jake, Jaeden, Katie P, Kayan, Leah, Lexi P, Oliver, Tyler, Sapphire, Willow, Poppy, William, Demi-Bleu and Yoanna. All of these children received a certificate. Poppy, Elena Ellie, Jake and Willow will also receive a prize for including extras with the passports, such as photos, mosaics, a notebook and a mask. Well done, everyone!

Attendance

Reception and 1 : 90.97% ; Class 2 : 100% ; Class 3 and 4 : 87.5% ; Class 5 and 6 : 95 %

Congratulations to Class 2 for ending their year with another fantastic week of attendance.

Achievements

As I said last week, all of the 6 children did the school proud in their SATs tests, but I wanted to give a special commendation to Aaron Hick, who scored the maximum mark of 120 scaled score on his Maths paper. This is a fantastic achievement and a first for our school. Well done, Aaron !
