We are not exactly enjoying the same sort of June weather that saw heat waves at this time of year in 2017 and 2018. We left it as long as we possibly could before deciding to postpone sports day, and though it is not raining as I write on Friday morning, being out on a soggy field in a cold wind would have tested even the most ardent of athletics fans. We are looking at the school calendar for the rest of term, and working with our PE coaches from CM Sports, to find a new date for sports day to share with families at the earliest opportunity.
Let’s instead look ahead, weather permitting. On Friday 21 June we have our Countries of the World Carnival on the school field, starting at 1:30pm, to which all families are warmly invited. This is a non-uniform day as well, so children may well enjoy dressing up in clothes to match the colours or themes of the country they have been learning about this term: Year R Mexico, Year 1 the Arctic, Year 2 Kenya, Year 3 China, Year 4 Australia, Year 5 India and Year 6 Brazil! We ask that on the day, for the non-uniform contribution, families provide a full bottle of something (soft, soapy or grown-up!) to go towards the Summer Fest bottle tombola.
Speaking of which, don’t forget the annual St Peter’s Fest from 5:00pm to 8:00pm on Friday 28 June on the school field – a Country and Western theme bringing fun for all. Tickets are on sale in the school office.
Do please take a few minutes to click on the Curriculum tab above to see pictures of the wonderful art family learning morning that Mrs Pearson hosted – an amazing feat in a busy school.
And finally, some key dates for Year 6 families are listed below.
