Headteachers message

What a quick week!  I do hope you all enjoyed the extra day’s Bank holiday on Monday.

This week, the Year 2 and Year 6 children have busily continued getting ready for their SATs. Year 6 sit their tests next week and we are so immensely proud of how hard they have worked and how well they are achieving. Make sure you all rest and play this weekend before a busy week next week.

Year 3 are settling well in their transition to the upper school playground at lunchtimes. It is lovely seeing them so excited and mixing with more friends.

We’ve had a wonderful day, today, celebrating the King’s coronation. I hope that you all enjoy any parties or gatherings you have planned over the weekend. Hope you have a great weekend!
