It was lovely to see the dads/ brothers/grandparents etc come along yesterday afternoon and share a book with their child. This is part of our acknowledgement of Fathers Day. As previously stated sometimes this can be awkward but the children were super, it was great to see so many grandparents, uncles, big brothers etc who came along. The important theme here was modelling reading and sharing a book as a male role model. Thank you to all those who came along for the event.
Next week the majority of our year 6 children will be going on their residential to the PGL Centre at Marchants Hill in Surrey on Monday– we know that they will just love it and wish them a safe journey there and back. We will keep everyone updated through twitter.
On Monday we will be having our first meeting with the parents and carers of our new children joining us in Septembers Reception class—this will be at 2:30pm. We would ask parents to come without their children on this occasion as the children will have opportunities to come into the classroom for their “stay and plays” later in the month. This way it is easier for all to hear the presentations.
I accompanied our children to the Medway Mini Youth Games football event last week. The team did so well playing countless games. We came 10th out of 30 schools in the “plate” section. We finished 3rd in the championship league and one of our players Samuel Moore received the trophy for the best player out of all the teams in that league so well done to him and to Mr Seale and Miss Ryan who run the team
The keen eyed of you may have spotted a new emblem on our newsletter and website– we have just been awarded the Artsmark at silver level for all the work we have completed to do with the arts. Well done to everyone and to Miss Daniels who gathered up all the evidence– we are awaiting our certificate but our next goal is Gold.
Have a lovely weekend
Mrs K Sexton
