Newsletter 20– 3rd June 2016

Welcome Back

A warm welcome back to the last half term of the school year, it promises to be action packed and full of exciting opportunities for your children.  Let’s hope the weather is kind to us and we can fit everything in that we have planned.


If your child will be fasting during Ramadan we would like to work with you to make sure we look after their welfare in the best way we can.   As Ramadan begins shortly we would appreciate it if you could let us know your child will be fasting and if there is anything we can do to help support you and your child. Click here to see the LA guidance.   

Year 2 SATs

Do you have a child in year 2?  If the answer is yes, they will have taken the national curriculum tests, also known as SATs, in May. Your child’s teacher will use the results of these tests to help them judge how well they are progressing, but they won’t be using the test results alone. Instead, they’ll be thinking about what they’ve seen over the whole of years 1 and 2 so they can get a full, accurate picture of how well your child is doing. We will send you a report on their progress by the end of the summer term.  For more information on the 2016 national curriculum test results at the end of key stage 1 - Click here

Football Team News  

On Thursday April 21st Mr Abdy took the football team to Bramcote Hills to take part in the annual South Broxtowe tournament. The team were placed in a tough group and played really well, only losing one of their group matches. Unfortunately, this wasn't enough to take them through to the semi-finals but they represented school brilliantly and had a great afternoon of sport. Well done!

Reminder - SPORTS Day CHANGE of times

Advance notice that the times of KS2 sports day have changed.  The website has been updated to show that:

Year 5/6 sports day is now on the morning and Year 3/4 on the afternoon of 16th June.  Note: the reserve dates/times for sports days are the same. See newsletter 19 for details

Reminder - England v Wales Football Match

Some Year 6 children are organising a mini enterprise event in support of their Pound Project.  Key Stage 2 children, who wish to, will be allowed to watch the England v Wales match on Thursday 16th June which kicks off at 2.00 p.m. Please note that Year 3/4 can come and join us after their sports day if they wish.  Children involved will need picking up later than normal at 3.50 p.m. If your child is interested they need to collect a letter from their class teacher and return it to school By Wednesday 15thJune.
