Mailing for 6th May 2022
What a busy, although short, week in school. Thank you for all your support with our Summer Fayre and circus event. The children thoroughly enjoyed watching the tent being assembled on Thursday. The after school fayre was really well attended and has raised a lot of needed funds to support school – THANK YOU! When we have a total, we will let you know. The circus event was a real treat and it was lovely to see just how much families enjoyed it. Thanks to FOHWIS for organising the day, it was a lot of work. An extra special thank you to Emma Rogers, Chair of PTA as without her the day wouldn’t have been the success it was.
Today, Mrs Moore came in for her retirement assembly. We know she is very grateful for the gifts and kind words that were exchanged with her last night at the Summer Fayre and last week. As a staff and school community, we wish her well in her new ventures and hope she stays in touch.
Parking concerns have again been raised with cars being parked irresponsibly along Gershwin Road. We are really worried that an accident will happen and one of our children will be badly hurt. Please consider using the Park and Stride offer of parking in the Portsmouth Arms car park and walking to and from school.
As the weather warms up and you start to buy sun care products for your family, please be aware that some of these products contain nuts in their ingredients. We have a number of children in school with nut allergies so please check the ingredients list carefully before you make your purchase. We advise parents to apply sun cream before sending your child into school. On really warm days, the children can re-apply using wipes or a roll on sun cream. Please do not send in liquid sun cream.
Please can we also ask that although it is now summer term, it is important that children are wearing shoes and socks rather than sandals to school as a matter of safety.
If you still have a cake container in school from the Fayre on Thursday, please collect from the school office next week.

The Year R children have been thinking about questions they would like to find the answers to related to dinosaurs. They have had great fun making up their own subtraction stories using dinosaurs maybe you could do some at home.
Word of the Week: enormous.
Maths Word of the Week: odd.
The Year 1 children have had a very exciting week and even got to watch the circus tent being set up! What a fantastic experience! In maths the children have started multiplication and have been using arrays to help them. In science the children have planted beans. We are very excited to see what they will grow into. The word of the week is portcullis.
This week the Year 2 children have been looking at a wordless picture book called Journey by Aaron Becker. We learnt about the features of newspapers and started to write our own newspaper reports about an event in the story. In Maths we continued our work on addition and have been using unstructured number lines to add two-digit numbers. In Science we carried out an investigation to find out if different surfaces affect how far a car travels and in History we considered what ‘famous’ means before going on a history hunt to search for famous people. We have started to learn about ‘tempo’ in Music and have started to develop our tennis skills in PE. The children were excited to see the arrival of the circus yesterday and did some sketching in the sunshine as the big top was set up.

HC3S have launched a parent portal where they can register children needing special school dinner menus directly. This will give parents more control and direct contact with the catering team. You will then need to make an application online for your child to have a special menu and the school will be notified automatically. If you need to apply for a special menu, please see the information in Letters Home
If your child has a change or existing or new medical condition, please inform us by completing the form which is now available on our website: New or Change to Existing Medical Condition Form
We continue to put our children, their parents and our staff at the centre of any decision making to ensure that we keep everyone as safe as we can at this continued tricky time. If you have any feedback as to how this week has been, please let us know via firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a lovely weekend. J
