This is an excellent opportunity to experience some of William Shakespeare’s most imaginative work and will cost £3.50 per child. If this is too expensive for you to make the full contribution, we do understand but also expect you to contribute at a level you can afford. Thank you for your support in ensuring the quality and quantity of curriculum enrichment continues.
A group of our older children have been undertaking the Junior Award Scheme for Schools (JASS), which is a precursor to the Duke of Edinburgh Award. Part of this award includes doing something to look after a community. The children have decided to toilet-twin: https://www.toilettwinning.org
By raising £240, the children will help fund a project in a poor community that will enable families to build a basic toilet, have access to clean water and learn about hygiene – a vital combination that saves lives. We will therefore have a non-uniform day on Friday 5th July with a suggested donation of £1 in aid of this worthwhile cause. Thank you for your support.
In order to promote awareness of Down’s Syndrome, we will have our own awareness day next Friday, 21st June. The request is that everyone wears odd socks on that day. Odd socks are a symbol for Down’s Syndrome awareness in recognition that chromosomes are shaped like socks, and those with Down Syndrome have an extra one. This is an awareness day, not a fund-raising event and therefore no money is required.

The menu includes:
Fully-loaded burgers (vegetarian option available)
Skinny fries or potato skins
Sweetcorn on a stick, carrot sticks and cucumber batons
Chocolate fudge brownies or star biscuits
The children (and teachers) have worked so hard to prepare for these tests and I cannot overstate how important it is that your child comes into school every day, on time, well-rested and having eaten a healthy, hearty breakfast.This will help your child achieve their very best and achieve a result they can be rightly proud of.
Copies of the government Standards and Testing Agency leaflet, which provides some essential information for you., are available from the school office. Please see your child’s class teacher with any questions.
