Sheringham Primary School Newsletter
Friday 21st June 2019
A quick reminder that school will be CLOSED for children on Monday 24th June. This is to allow for a staff training day. Thank you for your understanding.
Last week of clubs
Clubs finish next week for this half term. Why not check out the video on the television screens at the front of the school to see what the children have been up to!
Well done to Ms Haworth's debating club! Throughout the year, a mixture of children from year 5 and 6 have taken part in the East London Debating Programme. Every Monday, the children have worked extremely hard practising a range of skills that have enabled them to compete in many inter-school debating matches. On Tuesday, Sheringham was the highest point scoring team, beating more than 15 other schools, allowing them to take part in the finals. Unfortunately, we did not bring home the cup in the final, yet we are in awe of how well they did - we came home in such high spirits and we are amazed how far they got. What a fabulous way to end a year-long club!
Year 6 Production - The Lion King
The hugely anticipated Year 6 production is almost here! To mark the end of their primary school education, our Year 6 children will be putting on a truly ‘roar’some rendition of The Lion King on the 3rd and 4th of July. ‘Be prepared’ for Oscar worthy performances, with visually breathtaking sets and costumes. Book early to avoid disappointment!
Tickets will be on sale every morning next week, between 8.30am-8.45am at the front office.
Adults - £2
Child - £1
Thanks to all who have already completed the survey. We have had many responses, but still not as many as last year, so please take part.
Your thoughts and opinions are so important for us as a school and this is a great chance to share your views. A link was sent out in ParentMail, but you can also find it at: https://forms.gle/My784V4i6Uotnncc9
Book and Author studies
This half term, KS1 and KS2 classes will be starting their novel or author study. Usually these last around 3 weeks. Some classes around the school have already begun!
Children need to take responsibility for bringing the books back to school each day for their reading lessons, so they can continue reading together as a class. Once completed, the books must return to school to be used by other classes.
How can you help?
Please ask your child if they have read the pages they need to for homework. You could listen to your child read (or read to them if the book is a little tricky). You may wish to ask your child questions about their book, which will help with their understanding.
Most importantly, we hope all families enjoy the books and sharing these stories together. Thanks for your support!
Year 1 invitation to parents
A huge thank you to all the Year 1 parents who have already supported our author study at home, sharing the books with children and bringing them back promptly each week. The children have enjoyed it so much they would love to invite parents and carers to school on Tuesday 2nd July 3-3.20pm to share reading their favourite book from the collection with you.
