I was thrilled to see the children’s performances on the track but also to observe how supportive of peers they were from the side lines. In recent weeks, we have spent time discussing the importance of being a good sport, cheering everyone on, but also the importance of resilience, bouncing back if things go wrong along the way – both definitely seen at yesterday’s event, I believe!  It was wonderful to see you all onsite once again after such a long period of absence – thank you so much for coming along to support us.

Two off-site trips have taken place this week, the first to Bocketts Farm and the second to the Living Rainforest – you will be able to read more about each under the appropriate class sections.

As I write, I can hardly believe this is the last bulletin of the year, where has the time gone?  Safe to say, the children have been superb this year in facing what life has thrown their way.  One thing is for certain, the past year has made us all more adaptable and readier to take on changes at the drop of a hat. That said, I have to confess,  I am keeping my fingers tightly crossed for a more ‘normal’ academic year 2021-2022!

It’s another very busy time next week, so we will be collecting all reading books in on Monday 28 June, as we have time allocated to use the James Hall to practice with Miss Bee.  Please be assured we shall hear the children read in class wherever opportunities present themselves.

We would be extremely grateful if you could send your child in with a re-usable bag that they can put their school books in to bring home safely to you. Please send in a re-usable bag with your child by Wednesday 30 June.

I wish you all a wonderful summer break with plenty of rest, relaxation and hopefully some sunshine!
