Sheringham Primary School Newsletter
Friday 26th May 2023
Next week is the half term holiday and we hope that everybody has an enjoyable week - in this newsletter you will find many ideas on how to keep yourself busy. We return to school on Monday 5th June. If you are thinking of booking a summer holiday, the first day of the holiday is Friday 21st July. Thank you to everybody who makes a big effort to get to school on time every day. The school gates open at 8:40 and close at 8:50 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 habit of being punctual. It’s a great lifetime habit.

National Children’s Gardening week
A big thank you to our CSR club who have pointed out that this exciting week starts tomorrow! Being outdoors and amongst nature can significantly improve mental and physical wellbeing. Even if you don’t have a garden, you can transform unwanted items such as old wellies, shoes, tins and bottles into quirky plant pots. They look great and are a brilliant way to recycle. To find out more about how to get involved, take a look at the National Children’s Gardening week website.
Year 2 is visiting Southend beach!
Our lucky year 2 children have a very exciting visit to Southend beach to look forward to! There will be sunshine (possibly), ice-cream (definitely) and a chance to play with some friends from Greenways Primary School on Tuesday 13th June. All information about this important geography curriculum visit is available on Parentmail, please respond by Monday 5th June, 9am.
