Laurel’s Update

It is a wonderful time at school as we mark the end of this academic year and prepare for the next. Traditions are important as we work towards a ‘good ending’ and this includes our annual Summer Fair.  Thanks in advance to all the families who have organised this event and will be volunteering on the day. I hope to see lots of you tomorrow 12-3pm!

Last week, I shared with you the destination of the classes for September so that we can start the transition process. This includes an Open Afternoon on Thursday 6th July 3.30-5pm. This will be an opportunity for you to visit your child’s current class, talk to their teacher and collect their report for this year. You can then visit their new classroom and meet their new teacher. It can be helpful and reassuring to focus on the things that will stay the same as the children will naturally be thinking about the changes and differences.

Please note the school will be closed to all children next Wednesday, and all children except Year 6 on Friday, as a result of the national strikes. Please take the time to review the dates above and make a note of those that involve your children and you.

We are still keen to hear from more families who can help us make International Evening a success at 5pm on 13th July. Please email if you are able to contribute a dish, music or other performance. We have spoken to the children today about International Evening, and we hope you can join us in our evening of celebration.
