Foxes have set their own targets for the year and aim to achieve them!
Welcome back to all the new Year 5 and 6. We hope you have had a really great summer! We are looking forward to an exciting term ahead and have been busy planning activities that we hope will inspire the children.
We know this is going to be a year of lots of hard work, especially for Year 6, but, I am sure that the children will be prepared to do their very best. It is important that together we encourage them to approach everything they do with a positive attitude.
There are lots of fun things planned for this term. Year 6 will be going on their residential trip in October and we also have Book Week with lots of very exciting visitors and activities in school. Don’t forget to look out for The Big Read on the last Thursday of Term.
Hi All Year 6 (and parents)
I have looked at the weather forecast for our trip to PGL - Windmill HIll - and it looks grey, wet and chilly. Please ensure that you bring a waterproof coat and layers to keep you warm, 2 pairs of trainers, toiletries, clean underwear and a dustbin bag for wet items. Remember to bring a sparkly outfit for the disco.
PARENTS - please show your child what you have packed for them - we have had instances where children do not know what to re pack when we are leaving - as they do not know what belongs to them. If in doubt please label their belongings - We cannot be responsible for lost items.
Finally - please ensure that the school has an up to date phone number so that we can contact you should we need to.
