Thank you for everyone who came yesterday to look at the children's work. I was sorry to hear that some parents/carers weren’t sure who the 'Book Look Open Evening’ was intended for yesterday. I can see that, at a glance, it could be perceived that it was intended for Year 5 as in the recent newsletter it reads: Book Look Open Evening (3:30- 6pm) + an opportunity for Y5 parents to view the 11+ familiarisation paper + a viewing of photos & video from the Y5/6 residential trip.
If you have any queries or if you're unsure, speak to us at school please.
The intention was for families to pop in (informally) to look at the children’s work and it also opens up the opportunity for parents to talk with their children’s teacher. Please be assured that this hasn’t been a missed opportunity; all the children’s books will be going home with them at the end of the year. Some parents spoke to us before yesterday and explained they couldn’t make it and asked if they could pop in after school one night before Friday next week: that is perfectly okay too – we’re all happy to accommodate parents who wish to see how their child has gotten on and have a chance to talk to the teacher. If you would like to pop in, you’re very welcome to.
With our new permanent Administrative Team in place now, from September we will be sending out weekly scheduled reminders of key dates and events for the week as well as (a clearer, more specific) newsletter. The first newsletters each term will just be dates and information about forthcoming events over the term (one to keep to transfer to diaries). Please read the newsletter and dates carefully.
Please don’t feel like you’ve missed an opportunity; you’re welcome to pop in if you’re free after school and the children will be bringing his books home next week.
