Last Day of Term
A reminder that our last day of term is tomorrow, Friday, 21st July, when school will close at 1.30pm. All children will need to be picked up at this time – there will be no Friday Club. We will end the year with an assembly at 12.45pm. As long as the weather is fine this will be held in the playground and parents are invited to join us.
Have a super holiday!
School will be re-opening for pupils at 8.45am on Wednesday 6th September. All term dates and times will be available on the school website. We will be having our first ‘Meet the Teacher’ from 3.30pm on Thursday 14th September – put the date in your diary now!
Any Books At Home?
We are currently collecting all school books back in, so that we can re-arrange our collections for September. Can you please check your shelves, drawers, cupboards and under-the-beds for any class library books, phonics books and reading recovery books and send them back to school tomorrow.
We managed to have a wonderfully sunny and successful Sports Day this year, with the morning being spent at Little Ilford Park and the afternoon at school for the Team relays and Year 6 v Staff cricket, where the teachers batted their way to a narrow victory! The winners of the relays were Green team, while the overall 2017 Sports Day champions were Blue Team!

We have been very lucky to have Mr Lane, our Chair of Governors, taking coding club this term to help our children be the computer scientists of the future. Thank you to all of the parents who attended the final session on Monday. It was amazing to see you all working together and problem solving some tricky tasks. No doubt this will be a memorable moment for you and your child, and we strongly encourage you to continue coding together. Coding club will resume in September for Years 5 and 6.
A Magical Music Day
Thursday was an amazing combination of musical experiences and displays of musical talent. Children learned West African drumming, musical production, acapella singing and body percussion to name but a few! Hopefully everyone enjoyed the day and are feeling inspired to pursue their musical interests. A big thanks to the parents who attended our afternoon concert and all the musicians and staff who performed and ran workshops for our children. You all made the day a massive success!
Mr Moir and the Year 4 teachers took a group of lucky Year 4s to the Olympic Stadium on Sunday to watch the International Para-Athletic Championships, The standard of competition was very high and the children enjoyed the experience.

A Cracking Community Day!
Last Friday, we greatly enjoyed another successful Community Day. We had a huge number of families turn up and enjoy the fun, as well as take the chance to talk to teachers about their children’s progress. We also managed to raise £460 which will go towards providing more great Community Day experiences next year.
A huge thanks to Mr Chowdhury and his whole team for making the day so special.
