Half Term Holiday
A reminder that the last day of school this term is Friday 18th October and that children return to school on Monday 28th October.
If you have a child in Year 4, please join us next Tuesday 15th October at 8:50 in the hall for a maths parent/carer and child workshop. You will gain a good understanding of the Multiplication Check that your child will undertake later next year and learn about how you can support them with learning their times tables at home.
If your child is in Year 3, there is also a parent/carer workshop on Friday 18th October at 8:50 in the hall. This will focus on what the children will be learning in maths this year and how you can support them at home. We look forward to seeing you there.
Our Triple P sessions will be starting after half term. This is a great opportunity for you get tips and strategies about some of the positive ways of parenting your child/ren. If interested, could you please sign the leaflet which you can collect from reception and Mrs. Lewis will contact you during the first week back after half term.
Thank you to all those families who responded to the parent survey. There were lots of helpful comments which we will pass on to the borough. This will help them make a decision about whether to close Sheringham Ave during pick-up and drop-off times in order to help make our air cleaner. We will keep you informed about what the next steps are.

Every visitor to Sheringham who is lucky enough to have a school dinner comments about how brilliant they are. We are very lucky to have Florence, the top cook in Newham, leading our team and you’ll be pleased to know that they also got top scores for food hygiene in their latest inspection.
Year 6 Get Adventurous at Fairplay House
Our brave Year 6 children (and teachers) took on all sorts of challenges during their 3-day visit to Fairplay house in Essex this week. They canoed, explored caves, went for a night work and challenged themselves on the high ropes among other things. They returned yesterday looking weary but having a brilliant time.
“The campfire was one of the highlights of the year. I’d never had a campfire before - it looked like fireworks shooting out!” Abid - 6M
“Mr Mallinson went on the big swing and was really scared to cut the rope so he made Yacob do it instead. As he fell, he screamed all the way down.” Huda - 6M
