Mrs Wilding’s Weekly Words Summer 10
Wow what a Sports Day! Your children never fail to astound me and showed depths of resilience beyond their years, an ability to follow instructions and a huge willingness to take part. You must be very proud parents and deservedly so!
It is so lovely to be part of Claires Court School giving us the facilities to run a sporting event as we do but also to be able to join in with the Senior Girls “Festival on the Field” on Wednesday afternoon. The music and performances were wonderful and our little ones were dancing and thoroughly enjoying the experience. It was also an opportunity to say thank you to Mrs Sandra Young who has worked as a dinner lady for 35 years on this site and used to help out with Nursery cover. She is retiring but I hope she will pop in regularly to say hello to us all, as we will miss the happiness she brings to the Junior playground and dining room. In the meantime we wish her lots of fun in the next phase of her life.
The Nursery classes have created some lovely rainbow pictures this week, made windmills and have explored the effects of wind by blowing items of different weights across a table. With the sun and heat they have done lots of talking about protecting their skin.
Transition children have continued learning about minibeasts, their similarities and differences.
New children have been visiting again this week in preparation for their start in the autumn term and, as always, your children have shown great kindness to them.
During the week commencing 8 July the Nursery children will be learning about holidays, multi colours, the number 10 and the letter u. We will not be doing “Show and Tell” this week as so close to the end of the year there are a lot of things to go home and we wish to avoid a special toy getting mislaid. Transition children will also be learning about holidays and the letter f.
10 July is our “Fun Morning” (yes all our mornings are fun but this is our end of term let your hair down a bit morning!). Hopefully the wonderful weather will continue as we hope to do lots of water play in the garden. It would be helpful if the children could wear beach shoes if they have them and bring in spare clothes or swim clothes and a towel. All children are invited to attend from 8.30-12.00 even if it is not a regular session for them.
12 July is our end of term and it comes with mixed feelings. I am sorry to say that Mrs Samra (Transition), who has been with us for six years, is leaving and will be greatly missed. We wish her lots of happiness, good health and success and very many thanks for all her support and hard work. As always I am indebted to all my staff for their dedication and effort in all they do for the children, parents and me. Everyone is beginning to feel tired and ready for a well-deserved break after what has been another hugely busy and successful year.
As this is my last Bulletin for this academic year I wish all children moving on to their Reception classes in September lots of happiness and fun in their learning and I look forward to seeing the younger children returning or joining us in September refreshed and ready for action.
Have a wonderful, relaxed and fun packed summer.
