Head's Newsletter

Dear Pupils, Parent, Staff, and Governors,

This morning we held our annual Macmillan coffee morning. Thank you to everyone who contributed their time, their cakes and their money. The morning was a huge success and again, it was lovely to see everybody coming together. We raised a marvellous £1117.55. Thank you.

The Harvest Festival takes place on Friday 5th October. Children in Key Stage 2 will be celebrating in the hall with Fr Jeff at 2pm. We would welcome donations of non-perishable food and tinned items from all children which we will then send to the Passage.

Children in year 5 took part this week in a Tag Rugby competition, and although we were not the winners (this time), the children excelled themselves with their sports-personship. Coach Grant was exceptionally proud of them.

Children from year 5 and 6 also attended a writer’s workshop this week and joined with children from other schools to develop their story writing skills. A great time was had by all.

We held elections this week for house captains and were very impressed with the speeches given by the children in year 6 who chose to stand for captain and vice-captain. The children spoke confidently, purposefully and engaged with their audiences. The results will be announced in assembly on Monday.

Next week we are holding our very own Poetry Week with a daily Scholastic Book Fair, Poet Idol and overall celebration of all things poetical including parent volunteers sharing a poem with their classes and an Author Visit for Years 1-4 where all children are invited to purchase a signed copy of Veronica Cossanteli's book, "The Extincts."

Yours sincerely,

Mrs K Husain
