In preparation for the start of next year, I would like to inform you of a few changes that will be implemented from September:
I would like to welcome Mrs Bignell and Mrs Martin back to the fold. They will be job-sharing in Class 2 next year: Mrs Bignell on Monday and Tuesday, and Mrs Martin on Wednesday to Friday.
I would also like to extend a warm welcome to Mr Ross, who will be familiar to many from his work here through Premier Sports. He will be joining the Class 3 team as a 1:1 Teaching Assistant, and will also continue to run the breakfast club each morning.
In a change to our foreign language curriculum, from September, classes 3 and 4 will be learning Latin. This will give them a good grounding in both grammar and the origins of many words in the English language, and will provide a solid foundation on which to build their language studies at secondary school – whichever dialect they end up studying.
Class 3 will be beginning ukulele lessons in Term 1, that will run through most of the year.
After the slightly disappointing swimming provision this year, we have swooped in to arrange lessons at Bethany School in the autumn. This will begin in term 1 for Class 4 and continue for Class 3 in term 2.
Further details about Breakfast club will be sent out later today. Information about after-school clubs will follow on the 2nd September.
Finally, I would like to take the opportunity to wish you all a happy, restful summer break. I hope you all make lots of lovely memories and enjoy some quality time together.
