NEWSLETTER 11 SUMMER TERM

By July 17, 2014Newsletter

We have reached the end of another very busy and rewarding year. I would like to thank all our families for supporting school in so many different ways. We are very proud of the children and know that they will continue to amaze us as they continue their journey through our school and beyond.

On a more personal note, the staff and I would like to offer our sincere gratitude to you for the kind gifts, cards and messages of thanks we have received. We appreciate the time it has taken to do this at what we know is a very busy time of year.

The staff have been working hard getting to know their new classes. We have many exciting things planned for the coming year!

Until then, we would like to wish you a long, happy and restful summer. We hope the sunshine finds you!

Parent Feedback.

Thank you to all those who returned the parent questionnaires. The winner of the Lucky Questionnaire was Finlay Spafford who has received a family cinema voucher.

A summary of the results is included on the reverse of this letter.

In the additional comments section, parents said that they had enjoyed Stay and Learn sessions. These will continue next year, the first ones starting early in September. The dates are as follows:

FS2        Tuesday 9th September 2014 at 12.00pm

Year 1    Friday 12th September 2014 at 9.00am

Year 2   Wednesday 10th September at 9.00am

The sessions will be held in your child’s class. There will be an opportunity for you to see how the environment both supports and celebrates children’s learning. The class teacher will also talk to you briefly about the curriculum that is planned and the routines for the coming year.

Some parents also stated that they would find it useful for staff to share behaviour strategies used in school with them.

I can confirm that a Nurturing programme is scheduled to start on 1st October. It is titled “Getting the Best out of Family Life” .It will run every Wednesday for 10

Weeks at Silver Birch Children’s Centre. To find out more information or book a place, please call Julie Wilkinson on 07717733260
