Sheringham Primary School Newsletter

Friday 24th May 2024

 Please see Arbor for the original version of our newsletter, which includes photographs.

Half term holiday is next week and we hope that everybody will have an enjoyable week. We return to school on Monday 3rd June.  If you are thinking of booking a summer holiday, the first day of the holiday is Monday 22nd July.

                                                        

Thank you to everybody who makes a big effort to get to school on time every day.  The school gates open at 8:30 and close at 8:40 when the register is taken and lessons start.  If we’re honest about this, there are too many children who get to school late, which is disruptive to the class and their learning.  Please help your child to get into the routine of being punctual. It’s a great lifetime habit!

 

Year 5 Parent Workshop

What a wonderful end to the half term for Year 5! We welcomed in dozens of parents for a celebration of the half term’s incredible hard work, with geography,  art, writing and computing learning on display for parents to enjoy. Well done year 5!

 

Year 2 to visit  the Shah Jalal Mosque 

While at Sheringham, children visit places of worship of all major faiths as part of learning in our RE curriculum. On Wednesday 5th June, year 2 will visit the Shah Jalal Mosque in Romford Road. Please make sure your child is wearing appropriate shoes for the walk. These visits will take place during the school day, so children should arrive at school and be collected at the usual times.

 

Author Banji Alexander visits Sheringham

If you live nearby, you may have heard the joyful cheers and eager shouts as Sheringham pupils greeted Banji Alexander for our much anticipated author visit on Wednesday! Pupils wowed the published author with their impeccably rehearsed version of his song ‘New King’, which he recorded for the coronation. After an assembly led by Banji, he signed copies of his book and had his photo taken. There was such a buzz all afternoon and the day got everyone thinking about the story they might next write, having been inspired by meeting an author - we can't wait to read the stories Sheringham pupils write next! 

 

Sheringham Share Shop

A big thank you to everyone who donated toys and clothes to our Share Shop. Everything that was donated has found a new home.  After half term, we will again be asking for donations of clean, good-condition clothes (these can be for children, babies or adults) and toys. If you do have any of these items that are too small or unwanted, then please donate them after half term in our yellow donation box in the reception area at the front of school. Please make sure items are clean and have no damage or stains on them.

 

Year 3 learn to swim!

This week, the Year 3 teachers and children have been travelling to Atherton Leisure Centre everyday to participate in swimming lessons. This has been a fantastic experience for all of us, as many of us have never been swimming before. All children have shown great resilience in their growth mindset and made all of the teachers very proud!

“When we come out of the pool, we feel exhausted and tired but it’s worth it.” - Rhia

 

“My favourite part of swimming is when at the end of the lesson we get to jump in the pool.” - Muhammed

“When we finish swimming, I feel happy because we are getting there and learning how to swim.” - Ayan

 

Year 4 sleep over

What a night! A walk to the park to play games, a delicious dinner (cooked by the children), an ice lolly and a movie to finish the evening. A big thank you to all the staff that helped put on this experience for our Year 4 children.

 

“I think the best part was being able to play in the park with my friends. I also got to sleep in a room with them. It was so fun.” Jordan 4Y

 

Year 4 Multiplication Check

Being able to recall times table facts quickly is key to being successful and confident in maths. Year 4 children will be taking the national Multiplication Tables Check (MTC) in the first two weeks after half term. Please help your child do well by ensuring that they spend some time practising their times tables over the half-term holidays - a great way to practise is to use ‘Times Tables Rockstars’ at home! You can also find games and other resources at timestables.co.uk or look at the maths games on Google classroom, which were also sent on Arbor in early May.

 

NEW: Monday Morning Year 5 and 6 Football Club

We are excited to announce for the first 5 weeks back after half term we will add a Monday morning Football Club for Years 5 and 6. If you are interested, sign-up opens at 5 pm today on the Arbor app.
