Dear Parents/Carers


Welcome to the May Newsletter.



We are really sad to let you know that Miss Nagington will be leaving us at the end of term. She has been an inspirational Intervention Teacher and made a huge impact in our school. Miss Nagington is soon to be married and has decided to leave teaching and pursue other pathways. Whatever route she chooses to follow, we know that she will be successful.



Year 1 made their families proud with their fantastic assembly based around their fabulous year in class with Mrs Culling.



We are very proud to announce that Archie Tarry and James Westmacott were winners at the STEM challenge.   This competition was an eco challenge to make a musical instrument out of recycled materials. They made guitars and even managed to play a tune on it – Three Blind Mice!



Year 6 have been fortunate to experience a Drug Resistance Education Programme delivered by the Leicestershire Police. Valuable life skills taught at early age has lasting impact.


KS2 and KS1 SATS

Well done to all of our Year 6 pupils for such a successful SATs week. The children were calm, confident and well prepared and all gave the tests their very best shot. This is all we could ask and were proud of their determination.

Y2 have worked hard over the last few weeks on their SATs and should be very proud of their efforts too.

Y1 will be tested on their phonics in mid-June.

These are all Statutory Government tests and our school prioritises the children taking tests

during this period so that they have the very best opportunity and support to shine. We also know the tests are only one part of your child’s school experience and whatever the results of these test there will also be many other success and achievements to celebrate for each child.



Our Year 6 children have successfully completed their cycling proficiency course, so well done to them. It will be great to see lots of new cycles in our shelter as the weather gets warmer and the nights get lighter. They will receive their badges and certificates soon and should be proud of their achievements, especially the days out in that torrential rain!



As part of their “Out and About” topic, Year 3 went to Beacon Hill to create shelters and experience being ‘out and about’ in their locality and all it offers. They looked at the native trees, the Rhododendron Labyrinth, sculptures and animals and had lots of fun!



Hopefully we will see more sunshiny days this half term!

Please provide your child with a sunhat during hot weather. The school sun hats and baseball caps can be purchased from the office.

We would also refer you to the reminder Sun Protection letter that was recently sent out to all parents.



We actively encourage your child to drink water throughout each school day but particularly during warmer weather. Please ensure that your child has a plastic, leak-proof water bottle labelled clearly with their name. This should be brought to school by the children each day filled with fresh water and taken home each evening for rinsing.



The final topics of the academic year will be:-

4+         The Seaside

Y1         Wild Life

Y2        World Farming

Y3        Africa

Y4        Wet Wet Wet

Y5        Explorers

Y6        The World of Work


Any skills, experience, expertise or resources from our parents and carers would be greatly appreciated.
