Following the transition coffee mornings, we also held a Year 6 SATs information meeting where we spoke with parents about the upcoming SATs tests our Year 6 students will take and which children in the UK are currently sitting. Parents were also able to look at examples of the tests that have changed this year in accordance with the new English National Curriculum.
Speaking of Year 6, we were again treated to a super class assembly by 6D this morning. The students presented and performed to the rest of the Primary school and their parents, examples of work they have completed during the year. In particular, the writing produced by the students was fantastic and they read this out loud to their audience very clearly and confidently. There were also some excellent examples of the students using their IT skills to accompany their written work. Well done, 6D!
I wanted to take the opportunity in this week’s newsletter to ask parents for their help in keeping cases of head lice at bay. Head Lice can be a fairly common occurrence in schools, and can spread very easily in a school environment. When we are alerted to a case of head lice, our school nurses will always conduct checks of students in the relevant year groups, but due to the numbers of students in the school and their movement around school, we are unable to check all students that may come into contact with each other during a school day. Therefore, it would be really helpful if parents could also help by checking their children’s hair on a regular basis – at least once a week. If you do spot either eggs or live lice in your child’s hair, they should be treated before returning to school. For advice on how to check your child’s hair for head lice, or for information on how to treat head lice, please do not hesitate to contact our School Nurse, Kristina Strohbuecker (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Finally, I am very much looking forward to this evening’s Stage and Screen event in which many of our Primary students are participating. Our Rainbow Review and Cantabella choirs will be performing, as well as Primary students who are members of the Orchestra and Musical Theatre Group. I hope you are able to join us for an evening of entertainment
