Dear Parents/Carers,

 

We have had a very busy week, trying to cram five days worth of lessons into four days. Not an easy task.

The school has been very calm this week although we had a couple of our year four boys playing with a football in the inner yard after school on Tuesday which is not allowed. The children have had a reminder about the rules in assembly this week. They should not be playing with any balls in the yards or on the field before or after school unless it is a sport session or football/netball match. Pupils should be going straight home after school and not lingering to play on the school site. Only pupils who are at school clubs should be on site.

 

ANNUAL REPORTS

You should have received your child/children’s school reports this week (on Tuesday). We hope you will give us feedback by completing the slip enclosed with the report. Parental comments are always welcome.

 

PTA FILM NIGHT

On Wednesday after school, 80 children stayed on to watch ‘Mary Poppins’ which had been organised by the PTA. Thank you to Mrs Elwell, Mrs Cheryl Wright and Mrs Cheney for their time and good organisation! Look out for Film Night next half term.

 

3A CLASS ASSEMBLY

Today was the turn of Mrs Adams’ class to perform their class assembly. Although they did not have a full week to try to get in some rehearsals, it was fabulous – all about resilience, friendship, teamwork and being positive. As Mrs Adams is the PSHE Subject Leader, it was exactly what we are trying to teach our children at Westfield. Well done all!

 

COFFEE STOP

Please join us from 2:30 onwards for cakes and refreshments or buy some cakes to take away for the weekend. Cakes are 50p each – a real bargain!!

 

SATs

Everything has been done and we are ready for next week. It is one of the most important weeks in our school as the outcomes are used to judge whether our school is good and whether our lovely year six pupils are at the expected standard. As we know, children are much more than whether they do well in tests and a school is much more than its SATs results – rant over…

We wish our year six pupils a successful week and we promise we will look after them especially well. McDonald’s Treat on Friday!! As parents/carers, you just need to make sure they have a good sleep and are on time in school. Toast will be provided in school on test days.

 

Best wishes,

Margaret Greig
