Another busy week!
It’s been a busy old week, but I just want to say how proud I am of our Y6 pupils who have risen to the challenge and tackled their SATs with positive attitudes and determination. When I was collecting the final papers this morning one of them even said it was quite good fun and a lot less scary than he’d imagined; exactly what I’d told him last week!
I must say that I am really looking forward to some of the things we have planned for Arts Week and have been listening to your teacher’s ideas with great interest. If things go to plan, we will have some wonderful creations in the school grounds as well as some fabulous items for sale which will enhance every home.
Parents and carers are warmly invited to join us from 2.15pm next Friday to view the work completed during the week and we sincerely hope that everyone will purchase the sale items.
As part of the week’s activities we will be holding a cake sale and a non-uniform day on Tuesday to raise further funds for Mrs Cormack’s outdoor reading area. You will need £1 to pay for the privilege of wearing your own clothes for the day (although football strips are not allowed) and 50p for a cake.
Everyone will take part in the NSPCC assembly on Monday morning and years 5 and 6 will attend workshops in the afternoon before the NSPCC staff start the on-line safety workshop for parents and carers. All parents, carers and other family members and friends are warmly welcome to join us for the event which will be in the hall from 2.30pm to provide lots of up to date advice and information about keeping children safe online.
Another part of our safeguarding work in school relates to Anti-bullying and Mr Liddle will be hosting the next committee meeting on Thursday after school as well as organising Anti-bullying ambassadors from every class in school. We are not naïve enough to think that bullying doesn’t happen, but we certainly do our best to tackle anything we hear about straight away and ensure we do everything we can to keep everyone safe and happy.
Some of our Y3 parents and carers will be in school on Tuesday for Dinosaur Dinner day and one of the new QEGSMAT trustees, Mr Stanyer will be visiting the school in the afternoon. Please make all our visitors feel very welcome and tell them about the different things that happen here at Springfield so that they get a good understanding of what life is like at school.
I don’t have the reading, times tables, attendance or House Point scores to hand but will announce them in assembly tomorrow.
Take care and have a super weekend and well-deserved rest,
Blog Box question: What time does the on-line safety workshop start and where will it be held?
PS I forgot to mention that next week is “Walk to School Week” – remember to take a leaflet home tomorrow and good luck to our cricket team who are playing in a tournament at Hartshorne on Monday.
