Dear Parents

I am writing to thank everyone who attended our Grandparents morning and/or our Display afternoon this week. We enjoyed a wonderful day and the children performed beautifully.

 

I also want to let you all know that our fundraising appeal ‘Dream big Read’, has been extremely successful. We have raised over £6000! I would like to send a heartfelt ‘Thank You’ to everyone who has supported this appeal, we really couldn’t have done it without you! We have already started to spend the money. Each classroom has new books for the book corners and the reading scheme is being updated. We have also been able to buy books for the children to read in our ERIC (Everyone Reads In Class) sessions. These sessions have been introduced just this year and so we are inviting parents into school to see how they are working. Please come and join your child for an ERIC session on Thursday 4th July from 9.00-9.30am.

 

We will be holding a Physical Education Themed Week next half term during the week beginning Monday 24th June. The week will comprise of many activities including our Sports Fiesta at the Junior School on Wednesday 26th June. This will be from 10.30am – 12.15pm. Families are invited to join us and to bring a picnic as we have been offered space on the junior school field to have lunch afterwards with junior school families too. They will then hold their sports day in the afternoon and we will return to school. I will be sending a letter out with more details after half term. 

 

The PE week will also include a parent workshop on the afternoon of Thursday 27th June from 1.45pm. All parents are welcome to join us for a short presentation and then time in class to enjoy some physical activity!

 

We return to school after the half term break on Tuesday 4th June and this week will be our Walk To School Week. Please try to walk everyday and if that is not possible then park further from the school in order that you and your child get a chance to take part in this valuable activity. There will be a scavenger hunt in your child’s book bag which encourages your child to look out for different things along the way as they walk to school.

 

Please remember to park considerately wherever you park for drop off and pick up times. The grass verges do get terribly damaged if cars are parked on them and the safety of our children and consideration for our neighbours must be paramount when parking. I understand that the police will be in our area over the next few weeks.

I have heard from the Iver Heath Residents Association that Iver Heath is being considered for the ‘Best Kept Village’ award! Please could we all try to keep all visible areas neat and tidy over the next few weeks as the judging is done anonymously any time from the beginning of June.

As the weather is warming up please can I remind everyone to bring in sun hats and water bottles everyday and please apply sun cream to your child before they come to school. Thank you.

 

As always if you have any concerns or queries please feel free to come in and see me.

 

Yours sincerely

Mrs J Baker
