Junior -  Weekly email - Friday 8th July

Dear Parents / Carers
We hope that everyone enjoyed meeting their new teacher on Tuesday and that the Year 6 children enjoyed visiting their new schools. 
Thank you to all of the children who showed us their hobbies this morning. It is always interesting to learn about the wide range of activities that children are involved in out of school.
Don't forget that the PTA have their Summer Fun event this evening from 4:30pm to 7pm on the school field. Entrance is via the main gate plus the Lagger Gate will be open until 5pm and the Lagger Gate will be open again at the end of the evening. 

Staffing update - apologies for an omission in the staffing letter sent out this week. Mrs Burge will be covering PPA lessons for other teaching staff in the autumn term until Friday 30th September when she will start her maternity leave. Staffing details letter is here

Lunchtime staff vacancies - we are currently looking for lunchtime staff for both dining hall cover and to support individual pupils. This would be for Monday to Friday for both roles. If you are interested please contact the School Office

Summer Reading Challenge - This week the children have had an assembly about the summer reading challenge, which is being supported by the village library. As part of the challenge, the children are able to select the amount of books they would like to read over the summer. Upon completion of the challenge, they will receive a certificate and medal for taking part and achieving their goals. We hope they enjoy this challenge and we would love to share some of their certificates in assembly once we are back at school in September. The children can go into the village library to get started and pick up their starter pack. Summer Reading Challenge details
