Primary Weekly Update 22/03/2019 from Dr Nici Wood

Dear Parents, 

 

We were delighted to host a visit this week, from the Commonwealth Games swimming champion, James Goddard. In 2002, he won a gold in the men's 200m backstroke and a bronze in the Men's 200m individual medley at the 2006 Commonwealth Games. In the 2010 Commonwealth Games, he again won a gold in the men's 200m backstroke and this time gold in the men's 200m individual medley. James represented Great Britain in the 2004, 2008 and 2012 Olympic Games.

While in school, James observed a training session attended by our Primary and Secondary swimming team students. He was able to give them and their coaches some tips and guidance. Later, he shared his experiences with our Primary students from Year 4 upwards, during a collaborative assembly with the Secondary school. It was a wonderful opportunity for the children to discover a top sport athlete’s journey and to understand the level of dedication and perseverance needed for them to reach their goals. 

Our Primary Music competition this Thursday was also a great success. Thank you to those able to attend. As you are aware, there are huge benefits to be gained from playing a musical instrument. It increases memory capacity; enhances coordination; teaches perseverance and even has a positive impact on mathematical ability, to name but a few.

The competition enabled us to enjoy 27 well-rehearsed performances by children ranging from Years 2 to 6 on piano, flute, violin, drum, guitar and voice. The children confidently played their pieces to the audience, unflustered by the occasional errors that they made. I would like to congratulate the children on their efforts and thank Miss Emily for preparing the children so effectively. We look forward to another opportunity in the future, when we can listen to them play and observe the progress that they have made.

On a final note, our Term 2 digital school reports have gone out by email this week, so please be sure to check your inboxes to ensure that you have received them. If you are unable to access a digital report, remember you can ask the school to provide you with a hard copy. Next week, we hold our final formal Parent Teacher Conference of this academic year and you will have already received your appointment times for Class Teacher conferences. Please be aware that all of our specialist teachers will be present during the Primary conferences and we would encourage you to discuss your children’s progress with them. Feel free to visit them at your leisure since no appointment times have been scheduled with them. We look forward to seeing you there.

Enjoy your weekend.
