Week Ending 15thJune 2018
Well, what a busy first FULL week back. I started the week by reminding the children about the new school rules of ‘Ready, Respectful and Safe’ and the children are already talking about the way in which they can demonstrate them. In assembly, I talked about what can happen when you’re not ‘ready’ and I made them smile with my story of snoozing the alarm on a Monday morning.
The week then started with our wonderful Year One children taking part in the annual statutory Phonics Screening Check. I was so proud of each and every one of them for trying so hard to gain the scores that they did (and deserved). Over the course of the week, I observed some of the tests taking place and I think the children did a fabulous job; I was so proud! I would also like to thank all the staff involved with the phonics tests as they have been working hard all year to prepare the children and to get them ready for year 2. In addition, some children re-did their tests in year 2 this week and they did fab too! I would like to thank all the teachers and teaching assistants, who were involved in the tests.
Yesterday afternoon, we welcomed many grandparents into school for a rainbow themed afternoon. It was such a positive atmosphere and was so lovely to see so many grandparents in school. Every class did an activity, which resembled rainbows or rainbow colours and the art work created was fabulous. With a view to having ‘Rainbow Values’ from September, the children have created some amazing pieces for display. The afternoon went very well in general and I thank the Greasley Hub for providing teas and coffees throughout the afternoon and to Miss Marvin for planning the whole event.
A reminder that the new sports day date is Friday 29thJune and the arrangements from before still stand.
Have a great weekend
