REMINDER - COMMUNITY DAY TOMORROW
Please join Sheringham’s Community Day tomorrow. Here is the key information:
Parents and children should come for an appointment (pre-booked 8-9am; everyone else 9am-3.30pm) with their teacher.
Families can enjoy the activities on offer around the school site: please note, some activities and stalls require payment so do bring some money with you! Small change is better than notes.
Children are to be supervised by a parent/carer at all times during Community Day.
We hope to see you all there!
This term, our Year 4 and Year 6 children have participated in financial education workshops, led by the charity MyBnk. We believe that developing children’s financial knowledge is a very important part of their education, and it was wonderful to have our local MP, Stephen Timms, show interest in this area too - check out the article in the Newham Recorder about his visit to our school!
Go Girls Panel Event
Please join our panel event on Tuesday 24th July, at 1.45pm, where you’ll be able to see our Year 6 Go Girls interview a panel of inspiring women from across the STEM and creative sectors. We are really proud of the girls for their drive for equality and in raising aspirations of girls and young women and we really hope you’ll be able to join us for what promises to be a fantastic, uplifting event!
Year 6 at Adventure Island
Year 6 enjoyed an exhilarating day out at Southend’s Adventure Island on Tuesday! Here is what some of the children had to say about their day:
“I enjoyed going on the waterslide - WE GOT SOAKED!” Abdulrazaq, 6M
“I confronted my fears,” Fatima, 6N
“I loved the views from the tall rides - especially Skydrop,” Farhana, 6C
We will be holding our Sports Day on the morning of Monday 23rd July from approximately 9.45-11.30am. We will be hosting the event at Little Ilford Park; due to the scale of the day, with every year group involved, families won't be able to join in with the activities but you are welcome to come to the park to observe, cheer and support your child from the side-lines. Children will need to come to school in suitable PE gear and bring a hat and wear sunscreen if it is warm. They will be competing in their own year groups and should represent their team colour on the day by wearing something to show their pride in their team. This might be a hat or shirt, an armband, ribbons or even something more creative! Lunch will be as normal but children should bring an extra water bottle. Parents are also invited to join a whole school Sports Day ZUMBA warm up in the playground at 8.45am - so don't forget your trainers! Can’t wait to see you all then!
Year 6 Go Wild!
Stop press! The photos from last week’s epic performance of The Jungle Book are in - what a show it was! Our Year 6 children pulled off one the best productions we’ve seen: a tap-dancing chorus, a crowd-serenading ape and a hypnotising snake were just some of the highlights of an amazing cast and production - a huge well done to the children and staff who worked so hard to create it!
We would like to thank all families and children who have made a special effort to get up and make it on time to school every day. You will soon have a six week holiday to enjoy! It is very important that you make sure you are back at school on Wednesday 5th September so that your child doesn’t miss the very important first few days that will set them up for a successful year.
