Welcome New Parents
Last week we welcomed the new parents and children who start with us in September. Miss Rowland and Mrs Arnold gave their ‘get ready for school’ presentation and Mr Rylatt invited parents to a coffee morning with him and Mrs Tolley as part of the new PTC (Parents and Teachers Committee) if you are a new parent and missed the presentation you will find it on our website.
Reception
Last Friday our Reception children launched their summer topic by dressing up as mini-beasts and exploring the school environment.
Year 3
Year 3 opened their classroom doors to a very special visitor – a Mayan. Whilst in full costume the children learned about the daily life and experiences of a Mayan.
Year 6
This year again the Year 6 children ventured on a sponsored bike challenge of 25 laps of the field each to raise money for the RNLI Bembridge Lifeboat. An incredible £1512.35 has been raised – Fantastic! The children will make their presentation next week whilst on the Isle of Wight.
Summer Fun Day
Following on from last years summer funday we have decided to repeat the experience . Only this year it will be BIGGER and BETTER! We have some incredible inflatables including the infamous ‘Wipe Out’! There will be lots of fun games for all age groups and refreshments. We have sought the views of the Parents Forum group and instead of making a charge at each inflatable we will be making a one off entrance fee of £5 per child (pre-school age children £3). Each child will receive a wristband as proof of payment and this will entitle them to as many goes on the inflatables as they can possibly manage. This really is amazing value based on what the Mop Fair often charge. More details are on the back of this newsletter.
