The past week has seen all of the pupils at St Peter’s get ready for next year. Children in Years R to 5 have met their new teachers, and have spent a total of two full days in their new classrooms. As I have walked around the school, I have seen a great deal of introduction and transition work successfully taking place, which means that all the classes will be able to make a running start with immediate learning from Tuesday 5th September when we return after the summer break. This week has also seen transition work at each end of the age range at St Peter’s, as future Year R pupils have completed their ‘stay and play’ sessions, whilst Year 6 pupils have visited their future secondary schools. All this goes to show, therefore, that the only constant is change!
With just over a week to go, there remains lots of work still to be done, but we will of course turn our attention to marking the end of the school year with celebrations and public recognition of achievements.
And finally, thank you for all of the good wishes and prayers that came my way whilst I was recovering from a burst appendix. Normal service is, gradually, being resumed.
Mr R Cunningham
