Dear Parents & Carers,
Summer Term is with us already. What an important term for our school and what a full and exciting one it is too. There will be end of year assessments for all children to gauge how well they have progressed in their learning; this will be shared with you formally in their end of year Reports. The children in Year 6 will be undertaking their national tests which are vital measure not just for the children but for our school too.
As well as this serious business, the summer brings the full range of what our school offers in a very visible way. There will be a range of exciting curriculum opportunities including a residential school journey for Year 6 to the Isle of Wight and a different venue on the island this year. There is a five week sailing course for the children in Year 5; and a whole range of other class trips and outings arranged to suit the various ages of the children.
In May we will celebrate our faith in a very visible way; during the month of Mary we will recite our weekly Rosary; hold a May procession to the church; and a May Ball for the younger children. The fun in school will extend to celebratory dances for the other year groups, with our Summer Dance and then Summer Prom for the oldest children, who have been receiving extra dance tuition this term. That should prove to be an interesting event.
And finally with our increased focus on equipping the children with useful financial skills and associated education, the Schools Saving Club is planned to expand to more year groups and we hope to, once again, to run a school fair organised and run by the children themselves.
We hope that come the end of July the children will all be suitably happy and exhausted, perfectly ready to celebrate our saint’s Feastday, 25th July, whilst on holiday!
Keep in touch; read the weekly newsletter; talk to us - at the beginning and end of the day or through our ‘Suggestion Box’.
