Newsletter 15 June 2018

Dear Parents and Carers,

Firstly, a huge thank you to the PTFA for raising a wonderful £1550 last Sunday. It was a lovely sunny day and lots of staff and parents came along to help. As you may know, we had to cancel 2 boot fairs earlier in the year due to bad weather, so we are putting on extra ones throughout the summer. The next will be held on Sunday 24th June – helpers are needed from 9.00am so please speak to Gary Burgess, Chair of the PTFA (07884235189), if you are able volunteer.

We have had an exciting week at school. Last Thursday, KS2 children enjoyed a circus skills workshop and it was great to see so many family members joining in. We also launched our new Code club on Tuesday, delivered by computer coding specialists from the local company Think Big. The children were very engaged in the sessions and I am sure they will get a lot out of it.

Bikeability lessons began this week, the children were praised for their listening skills and participation. These sessions will continue next week and the company will return for a date in July to catch up with any children who did not complete the course.

Next week is ‘Healthy Week’ and there will be assemblies and workshops all about healthy eating and active lifestyles. Next Wednesday evening is also our open evening for the pupils, parents and carers in our new Reception cohort and we look forward to welcoming them all to Palm Bay between 6.30 and 8pm.

Well done to the choir who performed beautifully at the Turner Contemporary yesterday, in an ensemble choir with our friends from Holy Trinity Ramsgate and St Peters in Thanet. We are excited about future arts and music collaborations with these schools.

Thank you to all the dads and granddads who attended our Father’s Day open afternoon in Reception on Wednesday – it was great to see you all.

Finally, may I wish a very happy Eid al-Fitr to our Muslim families and staff!

Have a great weekend.

Miss Williams

Head Teacher
