Many congratulations the the confident, and brave, children who represented each class in our annual spelling bee this morning.
There were some really tricky words and they all stayed cool under pressure, spelling aloud in front of a large audience.
Mr O Brien was particularly pleased with the outcome of the year 6 competition!
Well done to you all – a credit to your class and our school.
If your child requires a new water bottle for September, one can be purchased during the first 3 weeks of term from your child’s new class, at a discounted price of £1. If you prefer, your child can bring in a bottle of plain water each day, as long as it is clearly labelled with their name and class on. Children bring home their water bottle each day to clean and return each morning.
From Monday 24th September water bottles will then be sold at the office, but please note the cost will then return to the normal price of £2.
Children will be bringing home their school report early next week. Please return the comment slip and parent questionnaire to school by the end of the week. Alternatively you can access an online questionnaire call PARENT VIEW for Ofsted. You can register at https://parentview.ofsted.gov.uk
Please note you can give your opinion of our school through parent View at any time during the year. You can refresh and review your response any time and the facility will overwrite your previous response. A letter explaining Parent View further is enclosed with your child’s report.
Last week each child took home a booklet with information about the Times table rock stars programme. Children were also given a password and login to gain access via laptop or computer. We have now paid extra for the APP so children can now access the site on their ipad/tablet/phone.
If you have any difficulty with accessing the programme please speak to your child’s class teacher.
Year 3 will be visiting Manchester Airport on Friday 20th July. children will be able to take a look behind the scenes in one of the terminals, see how baggage handling is organised and get to go inside a DC10 aeroplane. Payment for the visit was required by Friday 6th July, if you have not yet paid can you please call in to the office on Monday.
Further information regarding the visit will be sent home on Monday but in the meantime you can download the original letter from the website for any clarification.
Can you please ensure any snack and lunch money is paid up-to-date. As you are aware we collect lunch money on behalf of the Local Authority and we are obliged to inform them of any outstanding balances. Lunch money must be paid in advance each Monday morning. If you would like to pay up to the end of term from Monday 16th July the total amount to pay would be £18.40.
If you are thinking of changing your child’s lunch arrangements for September please complete a form at the school office.
