20th May 2019

As we look forward to half term, let’s give all the children and staff in years 2 and 6 a big pat on the back for all their hard work. The SATs have gone smoothly due to thorough preparation and calmness - well done everybody! Thanks also to everyone who have respected our Stay in May campaign, we appreciate your support.

It has been a busy weekend - the choir accompanied by Mrs Grimes, Mrs Young and Mrs Murdy performed brilliantly at St Paul’s Church on Saturday afternoon and a team of children took part in the Cancer Run at Gosforth Park on Sunday. We are justly proud of you all.

Our year 6 children are off on their residential trip to York, Manchester and Bradford, we hope they have a great time – I’m looking forward to following the posts on the website and reading all about it in the June newsletter!

Meanwhile year 5 have an action packed week to look forward to which includes a trip to Dynamic Earth on Monday, Mini-medics on Wednesday and on Thursday they will be taking over Lionheart Radio.

Other important dates to remember this week are:

  • On Monday morning a team of year 3 children will be taking part in the ‘Personal Best’ festival at Willowburn
  • Willow class family and friends lunch on Wednesday at 11:50am

We break up for half term on Friday - enjoy the holiday and we hope to see everyone back in school safe and well on Monday 3rd June.
