It’s been a mad music week with the school rocking in every direction. The iSingPOP Concert on the last Tuesday of term is not to be missed. The performances across the classes have been fabulous and today they have been professionally recorded. Proceeds from the DVD sales will go towards the revamp of the school stage. The Choir have also been invited to sing the last song on the main stage of the County Sports Awards in Gloucestershire Catherdral tonight, a superb privilege. Good luck the choir, give it all you’ve got!
Year 6, supported by Keystage 2, have been madly rehearsing their end of year show, again it sounds superb. The performance is on the last Wednesday of term.
Having tried hard to have a less hectic final term, we seemed to filling every space available. We do appreciate all your support during this busy time and I am sorry where communication doesn’t quite work or we have to make difficult decisions about weather. We were all very disappointed about postponing sports day yesterday. These are never very easy decisions, having to consider many factors including the many parents who have taken time off work. We are trying next Friday, it is the last attempt as there are no more free days available. Whatever the weather we will try to organise some kind of sports day celebration even if it is a very shortened programme. Due to the District Swimming Gala, KS2 are having their Sports Day in the afternoon from 1pm and Keystage 1 with Reception will have theirs from 10am. Please join us for lunch at 12, slightly earlier than usual.
Next week will be the last week of clubs. At the time of writing, the following clubs will be on – Cricket, Cookery, Archery, Martial Arts, Rounders, Table Tennis, Dance with Nicky, Athletics, Pulsar, KS1 Drama.
The Keystage 2 Arts and Sports Award Evening is next Thursday 9th July and is always great fun. Just getting together and recognising individual and team achievements. This will be Mrs Reays final performance! Do come and be inspired by what we celebrate, you may have won something? There will be a bar providing refreshments and the celebrations will start at 6pm.
Finally, on an exciting note, we have partnered with the Stroud Community Café, Star Anise, to provide food education to children from September. This will also include cooking the school lunchtime meals and cooking with the children in the New Children’s Kitchen. This is a very exciting project to bring lunchtime meals into the heart of our education to focus on creating healthy and fit children. We will let you know more soon.
With the ever changing weather please keep an eye on sunny/heat wave days. Children can come in looser fitting clothes when appropriate and please keep the sun screen applied along with hats, long sleeves and water bottles.
Have a lovely weekend.
