HTPD 24/6/16

24 June 2016

Dear Parents,

With the country in a state of political upheaval, the school remains an oasis of care, good relationships and kindness. Our Year 6 children spent the whole week together in the beautiful surroundings of Preston Montford in Shropshire. I was lucky enough to take part too and was delighted to see how independent, self-assured and enthusiastic all the children were. As they look towards their own futures at secondary school and beyond, they seem to be well equipped to face any challenge. The photos on Twitter show how happy they all are, enjoying a long walk over the Stiperstones, eating delicious, locally-sourced food, writing poems about the historical significance of Ironbridge, laughing with friends…and meeting a particularly strict Victorian headteacher!

I travelled back early to be here to greet our new Year 3 children who spent Thursday and Friday at the junior school meeting their new teachers and excitedly exploring their new environment. The older children met them with loving acceptance and a warm welcome. I hope that, as our country considers its future role in the world, we can all become more child-like and open hearted. Even the youngest children had an adventure with their first day trip – our reception classes were so excited to be travelling by coach to the Look Out Discovery Centre where some of them bravely climbed to the very top of the lookout tower. I know that another particular highlight was having a picnic lunch. It’s all part of “learning to live”!

We would like to let you know that Lesley Reeves, the finance manager, has accepted a voluntary settlement as part of the restructure of the school’s administrative functions and as such, recently left employment with the school.  She has always worked with the highest levels of professionalism and integrity and we offer her our very best wishes for the future.  

Our assembly theme this week was centred on Jesus’ words that we should all be like light to the world, using our best ideas, creativity and talents to make the world a better place. I’m finding encouragement in the optimism of our children as they learn to embrace the future with hope and confidence. I do hope everyone enjoys a long weekend, with the school closed on Monday for our midsummer holiday. See you on Tuesday.

With best wishes, Clare

As part of our assembly series a group of children in Year 5 wrote a poem about the Olympic Values. They're good words to focus on:

The Olympic Values

Respect is treating someone right,
Looking up to them and smiling bright.

Equality is treating everyone the same,
And not giving anyone the blame.

Excellence is aiming high,
Reaching up to touch the sky.

Determination is doing your best,
Even when you want to rest.

Courage is always keeping sane,
Saying you can do it again and again.

Friendship is love and care,
Making sure you're always there.

Inspiration comes in many shapes and sizes,
Be prepared for some surprises!

By Mathilda, Maddie, Megan and Lucy.

The school will be closed on Monday 27 June for the mid-summer holiday.

Sports Day, Tuesday 12 July

Driving in Semaphore Road
Please avoid turning in the staff car park entrance as this is too dangerous when children are crossing at pick up and drop off times. We do ask parents to observe the unofficial one-way system down Semaphore Road (from Pewley Hill to Pewley Way) which means that there is no need to turn in the road.

Run to Rio update: The updated total for week 9 is: 3636.

Lost:
Amber Grundy, Beech Class, has lost her (probably named) Shackleton cardigan at Run to Rio on the field on Tuesday. It may have been mistakenly taken home by another child, possibly in Year R.

HTPD 17/6/16

17 June 2016

Dear Parents,

As we move towards the end of the academic year, we are focused on making good assessments of the progress that the children have made since September. Teachers are working hard to write a helpful summary for each of you about what your child has achieved, how your child seems to learn best, but also how they are developing as people; I’m really looking forward to reading these reports too. I know that so many of them will be full of wonderful examples of children demonstrating determination, effort, empathy and respect. Of course we also have to submit end of key stage assessments to the Department for Education for children in Years 2 and 6. As part of the national quality assurance, we were selected to have a sample of our Year 6 children’s writing moderated this week. It was just great to be told how creative the children’s writing was, as well as to be praised as a school for ensuring children learnt to love writing. The visiting consultants commented that they’d really enjoyed reading the children’s work, and particularly noted the pride that each child clearly demonstrated in their finished, published writing. It was a super endorsement of our cross-curricular approach and our school ethos.

One important aspect of this creative curriculum involves our exciting trips. Year 2 this week enjoyed an inspiring day out at the London Natural History Museum; they are now busily planning their own dinosaur exhibition to rival the one up in London. Year 6 meanwhile are getting excited about their residential visit to Shropshire next week. One of the highlights of that trip is the Victorian school room with its particularly strict teachers. We’re all looking forward to getting into role!

It’ll be exciting to be at the starting line for the first HTPD fun run this Sunday. I’m so thrilled with the number of children taking part. It’s great to be part of such a vibrant community, and it’s sure to be a great way to raise funds as well as having a good time together. Last weekend’s summer fair at the infants was also a huge success. Thank you to everyone who took part in that, and especially to the FOPS organisers who worked so hard to make it happen - and thanks too for the fantastic sum of around £2300 which was raised.

With best wishes,
Clare

HTPD 10/6/16

10 June 2016

Dear Parents,

This week has been just wonderful! In fact, it’s hard to know what to write about first.

I’m going to start by telling you about a really interesting phenomenon. As you know the road works have caused considerable challenge to the morning and after-school run. It’s never easy to predict how long something like this will take so I want to thank you for being so tolerant of the frequently updated information – but actually, the children have been arriving in school in a more relaxed and happier mood than usual. I can only wonder whether parking up slightly further away and walking into school improves the start to the day. Perhaps that little bit of time walking and talking gives the children an opportunity to feel really treasured. Some of you might like to keep walking in even when the road works are complete!

Of course, the highlight at the infants was Healthy Week. Thanks go to Julia Brown who arranged for so many excellent activities as well as talented visitors to come in and inspire the children. They have all loved every minute. Also this week, we welcomed the new Reception parents to the school. It’s exciting to find out about our new families joining the school community. We invited them all to the summer fair on Sunday at 1pm. I do hope I’ll see many of you there too!


The Year 4 children have had an amazing time camping at Bentley Copse in Shere. Singing with them both evenings at their camp fire reminded me why I’m the luckiest head teacher in the world! They really are inspirational and I loved hearing them reflect on how they’d seen “heaven in the moment” throughout the whole trip. Huge thanks to the dedicated team of staff who worked tirelessly to make this happen – they all deserve a very restful weekend!

Finally, I can now announce next year’s class teacher teams. We’re really confident that each year group can look forward to excellent teaching and creative, exciting learning opportunities.
Year R: Frances Clixby, Sheena Preston
Year 1: Sarah Mackenzie, Claire Cruddas
Year 2: Emily Russell, Patrick Davies
Year 3: Alison Tester, Toby Strutt, Sian Stanley
Year 4: Jo Marsden, Rachel Tolhurst, James Wyatt
Year 5: Nick Walker, Laura Hanley, Heather Havermans/ Bec Plaistowe
Year 6: Tom Everard, JJ Blackstock, Helen Campbell


Nicola Bridal will also be working with the reception team as well as in Y2, Mary Booth will be teaching across all the Year 6 classes, Maggie Burgess will be moving to the juniors teaching mainly in Year 4 and Gillian Trumble will also be teaching at the juniors. Please allow us to consider the best fit for each child, taking into account the huge number of important factors in ensuring a smooth transition in September. Any comments should be directed to me rather than to your child’s current teacher.

With best wishes
Clare

Proposed cycle path – online survey:
There is a proposal for a new cycle path linking Bramley, Shalford and Guildford. It will be clean, direct, paved and commutable, following the A281 closely where possible. It has been proposed and supported by Bramley PC and Shalford PC and with the help of Surrey CC we have posted an online survey to assess demand. Perhaps families could also pass it on to local friends.
