Summer 2016Posted on Thursday, April 21st, 2016.
I trust you all had a lovely Easter weekend and Spring break and feel refreshed and energised ready for the new term. Work has taken place over the holidays to further improve the school environment with new interior and exterior classroom doors to all classrooms. Ensuring that the environment is a safe, bright, comfortable, and stimulating learning place for the children is always a top priority for us.
Again this term as part of our School Improvement Plan we continue our work to raise standards of reading throughout the school. This year we have invested heavily in new books for the children, run a pre school reading club and continue to look at ways to raise the profile of reading throughout the school. On dry days this term we will be encouraging books to go out onto the playground and field so that children can enjoy the pleasure of reading at break times. Please encourage your child to read at home and share reading time with them to enhance their enjoyment of reading and help to improve their vocabulary. Reading is a skill that the children will need throughout their education and beyond into adult life but is also a wonderful pastime that can provide great enjoyment at any age.
The term is set to be a really busy one. SATs tests take place in May for our Year 6 children; Year 2 will be undertaking their ‘special’ work; Sacramental preparations continue in the build up to the children receiving the Sacraments this term; May Procession; Walking Day; Sports Day; Year 6 residential visit to Condover Hall and class school trips are all set to happen over the coming weeks!
So the school really is a busy place — keep your eye on the newsletter for updates on everything happening in school this term…and until then….KEEP READING!!
