Dear Parents/Carers,

Our Year 6 children have worked so hard this week, sitting the KS2 SATS tests. The tests are demanding and the questions hard. We were so pleased with the calm and focussed attitudes the children had, and proud of all the work they had done. (I know that the delicious breakfast, the biscuits and the squash did seem to help!) Today, they went to the park to celebrate and you can see photos of that, and much more, in the attached newsletter. It has also been lovely to see the home learning projects today. They were so creative and full of variety. Once again, I know the children, and indeed the parents, worked very hard to produce such high quality items. There is also a photo of our Year 4 tennis team in the newsletter, they played fantastically and came second in the borough competition.

Class Photos

Next Tuesday is class photo day. Please send children in in their summer uniform, ready to be photographed.

Enterprise Day – Friday 25th May

Next Friday, 26th May, will be Enterprise Day, where the children will be learning about buying and selling. At the juniors, each class has designed a product or activity, using recycled materials, to sell at a Trading Fair. Children from Year 2 to Year 6 will go to the fair and will be encouraged to bring in some money to spend (£3 is the recommended amount).

To develop the junior children’s economic awareness, there will be pig tax on profits: £10 or 20%, whichever is greater. Tax revenue will fund an additional week of the micro-pigs. All other profits will be spent on resources the class who earned them choose.

Micro-Pigs

Next week we are going to be looking after micro-pigs at the juniors and then again for a week early June at the infants.  The children are very excited about seeing the pigs, and so are some of the staff! We are all going to enjoy looking after them, have the chance to teach them a trick (what clever animals), and learn how to care for these miniature pigs.

Talking to Teachers

The end of the day is an excellent time to talk to teachers. If you do want a conversation with your child’s teacher, please wait until the majority of the children in the class have been dismissed (or at least the initial rush is over!) before coming to talk to them.

Cello Lessons – Next Week

Lydia Kwon has had to change her lessons next week from Wednesday to Monday. Your child’s lesson time will be the same as usual, just on Monday not Wednesday.

Year 1 Lunchbowl Fundraising

Thank you very much with supporting your children with their Lunchbowl fundraising today. We measured a massive 50 meters of change and await Lunchbowl to tell us how much that actually is!
