22nd June 2018 Newsletter
Thank you to those parents who attended our Parent Forum yesterday morning. We had some lovely input and suggestions to think about for next year. It is very important to hear parental opinion and to be able to ask parents for their feedback in an informal manner with the head, deputy and chair of governors present. This is your opportunity to have your input. For those who were unable to attend the Forum, we will be sending a letter home next Friday asking parents and carers for any ideas they might have which we can then feed into our School Improvement Plan for the 2018/19 academic year.
As part of one of their fund raising activities for their trip to the Lion King in London , Year 6 had a sleep over in the school last Friday night. They had an amazing time watching a film, eating pizza and then sleeping in the hall over night! The children were amazing, it all went off without a hitch even though we had prepared for just about any eventuality, everything went really smoothly. A big thank you to the staff who also slept in the hall with the children and supervised them– they haven’t claimed any overtime yet… the venture raised a whopping £333.00 so well done to all concerned. Year 6 are off next week on their residential to PGL Bawdsey Manor Centre in Suffolk. We wish them all the best and know that they will have a great time. Keep checking our school twitter feed and the website for daily updates
Communication has been sent home today regarding our Sports Day which will be on Tuesday 3rd July. As in previous years this will be at St John Fisher School, Maidstone Road site with Years 1 and 2 in the morning and Y3.4.5 and 6 in the afternoon. All children should come to school on that day already in their PE kit, so no uniform, there will be a shared picnic lunch in the field for everyone – so bring your picnic rug! Arrangements including lunch and collecting at the end of the day are in the letter so please do open the email and read carefully.
Its our Summer Fair this afternoon straight after school. There will be lots to do and eat with a BBQ, Pimms and lots of cultural food prepared by our parents as well as the old favourite: candyfloss. We’ve bought an extra machine since our multi faith day so the huge long queue we normally have will be halved, hopefully. I’m looking forward to seeing as many of you there as possible
And finally… Come on ENGLAND, we’ll all be rooting for you on Sunday!!
