 ‘The best that I can be’

Democracy in Action

We learnt a lot this week about the British value of democracy when we found out all about the general election. Class 5 and 6 held a class general election, where parties made speeches and answered questions about their manifestos. Everyone voted and the Green Party won.

Termly Learning Conferences

You will receive your appointment slips for the Termly Learning conferences due to take place on 20th June by the end of next week. Please make sure you make an appointment so that your children can share their learning with you.

Class Photos

Our class photos will be taken next Friday, so please ensure that your children are in school in their smartest summer uniform.

Building Work Update

The Reception and Class 1/2 classrooms are still standing, although they are no longer functional. I will let you know as soon as I have more information from the contractors.

Sports Activities

Please ensure that your children have their P.E kits in school, as they will all be taking part in competitive sports activities during P.E lessons on Tuesday. This will replace an official sports day, as we are still not sure exactly what is happening with the building work.

Classes for September

Ms. Holmes will be in school on 10th July to meet her new class. She is hoping to pop out at the end of the day so that some of you can meet her too.


Congratulations to these children who received commendations this week: Ruth Airen, for her excellent contribution when answering questions in our class election; Flo Jerrett, for being kind and helpful to her friends; Rhys Hayes, for his continued hard work and Michelle Onifade, for being a cheerful, hardworking member of the class. Well done, everyone!
