Dear Parents,

As we enter the final two weeks of the summer term it is a chance to reflect on some of the exciting events from the past year. There have been many highlights over the year, including our various themed weeks – ‘Spelling and Phonics Week’, Design and Technology Week’, ‘Maths Reasoning Week’ and ‘World Week’!

The children have enjoyed many trips and visitors during the year and on every occasion their behaviour has been excellent.

Each year group will have performed in a theatrical and musical production during the year and these have all been wonderful! Our Year Two’s finish the year with what is anticipated to be an exciting performance of Dragon Days this week! It is so important for all our children to have these experiences as part of their learning. It supports the development of confidence, language and team work amongst many other skills.

The children have also achieved extremely well in the End of Key Stage 1 SATs. The results are attached to this letter. Please also find on the reverse of this letter the holiday dates for the next academic year.

I am delighted to be able to inform you that the PTA Barbeque has raised an amazing total of £1863. This will be used for resources around the school including outdoor learning and classroom equipment. Thank you again to everyone who came along and especially to our fantastic PTA!

The result of our exciting Sports Fiesta morning in June was that although it was very close Yellow team were the final winners.

The result of the Year Two Sports Day was a tie with Hedgehogs and Foxes being joint winners.

 

Here are a few end of term reminders:

Leavers Disco: Our Year Two leavers disco will take place on Thursday 19th July from 4.30-6.00pm. This is our treat to the Year Two children and a reward for all their achievements while they have been at Iver Heath Infant School and Nursery.

Leavers Assembly: Our Year Two Leavers assembly will take place on Friday 20th July at 9.15am. All Year Two children’s parents are invited to attend.

Sadly Mr Steuli will be leaving us at the end of this term. He will be greatly missed by us all but we wish him all the best as he pursues a career in the NHS.

We break up for the summer holidays at 1.45pm on Friday 20th  July. We return for the autumn term on Thursday 6th September.

I’d like to take this opportunity to say Goodbye and Good Luck to our children and their families who are leaving us this summer and we look forward to welcoming new families into our school in September.

I would also like to wish everyone a very happy summer holiday!

Yours sincerely

Mrs J Baker
