Ecuador Earthquake Appeal

Thank You

Thank you to all the children who brought in £1 today, as a part of our Non-Uniform Day. We will send all donations received to the Ecuador Earthquake Appeal.


Year 6

This week was a busy week for Year 6 who took their end of KS2 SATs tests. They now have lots of exciting activities to look forward to, including their residential trip to the PGL Centre and their End of Year Production and Mass.


KS1 Tests
Next week KS1 will be doing their SATs tests. We will be telling the children that they are going to do some special work to show what they can do. We would appreciate it if you could refrain from discussing these tests with them as we worry it may cause unnecessary stress or pressure.


Unclaimed Cake Containers

Thank you to everybody who contributed cakes to the Year 5 Cake Sale last week. We have quite a few containers, plates and tins left in school (without names on them). If you think one of these might be yours and you would like it back, please enquire at the school office.


QuadKids Athletics Competition

Next Wednesday 18th May, a group of Year 5 and 6 pupils have been selected to represent our school at the QuadKids Athletics Competition. This will take place at the Hillingdon Sports and Leisure Complex, in Uxbridge, and consists of: 75 metres sprint, 600 metres run, mini vortex howler throw and the standing long jump. The winner of this competition will go on to represent Hillingdon at the London Youth Games, on the 30th June. If your child is taking part – please arrive at the complex by 6pm to pick them up.


Year 4 Visit

Next Friday 20th May, Year 4 will walk to Fassnidge Park in the morning to visit a pop-up Velodrome. They will receive coaching from professional riders and then get the opportunity to cycle on the track. This event will be led by Street Velodrome with the aim of encouraging children to develop a love of cycling. The visit is completely free and our school will also receive a complimentary resource pack full of cross-curricular activities. All children taking part have been asked to come to school in their PE kit and trainers (and to bring their school uniform in their bag).


Year 1 Class Assembly

Year 1’s Class Assembly will take place next Tuesday 17th May. All parents, carers and family members are most welcome to attend. The front entrance to school will be opened up by a member of staff, shortly before 3pm.


Puzzles with Parents Afternoon

During the afternoon of Monday 23rd May, all classes from Reception (UEYs) to Year 6, will be involved in lots of fun/interactive puzzles and investigations. We are inviting all parents/carers to come into school, from 2.15pm, to see what the children are doing. At 3pm, we will be serving refreshments in the hall and there will be the opportunity to view some of the maths resources we use in each class. A letter will be sent home with further details nearer the time.
