Dear Parents,


What a great week we have had.  There has been so much enrichment going on in school.  The playground is filled with children preparing for the Variety show (parents are welcome between 2-3pm on Wednesday to watch; we are yet to know if we need to allow longer!)


There has been sandwich making in Chaffinch, ending with a picnic on Thursday with some very creative sandwiches!! Goldfinch have following their fairtrade recipes and the food smelt delicious.


Year 1 and 2 children are excited about their trip on Monday to Blue Reef Aquarium which I am sure will be a fantastic end to their learning on the seaside.


We had many parents join us for our Open Evening; the Year 6 children enjoyed their roles in the cafe.  Thank you to Mrs Anders, Mrs Brewster and Mrs Bardsley.  I hope you enjoyed seeing the progress in your children's books.


On Tuesday we received the SATs results for Key stage two and all children now know how they have performed in the tests.  We are very proud of them  and thank the parents for their support throughout the year.


The week finished with soaking wet staff after our 'Soak the Teacher' fundraising.  Needless to say the children loved it and we were soaked! Thank you for the incredible support, we have raised an amazing £325!!  Thank you to FOFSA for organising ice creams for afterwards.  All the money raised will go towards Maths books for September.


I wish you a lovely weekend; next week will be busy with many leaving and end of year events; I look forward to seeing you throughout the week. On Tuesday we will be joined by our governors for the day.


Kind regards

Jacquie Vanstone
