Well the final week of the school year is finally upon us. I say ‘finally’ but actually it has come around very quickly - but as the saying goes “Time flies when you’re having fun”. Hopefully it has been a year filled with a combination of fun and learning and contained a lot of happy experiences and memories that children will keep in their minds for some time to come.
Moving Up Day
The final KS1 ‘Moving Up Day’ happened last week and children were able to go and find out more about their new teacher and classmates. Miss Emma gave the current Y1 Leavers a special job for the morning and they became chief photographers, capturing the new Y1 teachers in action. The children had a lovely morning, and as you can see, found time to make some lovely pieces of collaborative Art which will be on the walls by August.
Children in Y1 have been dreaming of the future this last week - not only thinking of Y2 but of what they imagine they will be doing when they are grown up. I wonder how many of them will still have the same dreams in ten years time?
End of Year Reports
KS1 Term 3 reports have now been published to the Parent Portal for you to view and print. As the reports this term are more detailed, consultations are not offered. However, please feel free to contact the class teachers if you wish to discuss them further.
As usual, Foundation Stage Reports are in a printed format so your child will be bringing this home with them.
Arrangements for Friday 30th June
Most of you will be aware that school will finish at 1pm on Friday this week and should be collected at 1pm or before.
KS1 children will all have their lunch at the normal time and will be finished lunch by 12.10pm. When the bell rings teachers will take them inside to pack their bags and spend some time saying final goodbyes to teachers and classmates. At 12.45pm children using the bus service will be taken to their bus monitors and buses will leave at 1pm
If you wish to collect your children earlier please be sure to tell their class teacher or TA .
At this time of year it is always the time to say goodbye to some of our families and some of our teachers too. This year we are saying goodbye to four of our favourite people. Miss Sarah has been with us in Y1 and Reception and Miss Ellen in KG and Reception. Both are returning to the UK this summer and looking forward to starting new jobs and catching up with family and friends. Miss Cassie is also going back to her hometown in the Channel Isles for some long awaited family time, whilst Mrs Fiona and her family are off to start a new adventure in Hong Kong, where she will be working as a Reception teacher. Both Cassie and Fiona have made massive contributions to the life of the school as House Leaders and again, will be sorely missed. We do of course wish them all every happiness and know that we will see them again.
All that remains is to wish all of you a safe and happy holiday and we look forward to welcoming our returning families back to school in August. Good luck and best wishes to those families moving on - please come back and see us when you are next in Bangkok.
