Calling all Aldi shoppers...
Please help us to collect the 300 stickers we need to complete our gigantic Team GB poster which is on display in the hall. Once the poster is completed, we’ll receive an exclusive school sports kit and have a chance to win £20,000.
Every time you spend £30 at Aldi, remember to pick up a sticker so that you can send it in to school.
Many thanks.

So, the academic year 2018-19 draws to a close. It’s been a year of full on learning. All our children are better readers, writers, mathematicians, historians, geographers, scientists, sportsmen, philosophers, artists, musicians and technicians than they were this time last year. Hurrah! We have sung together, danced together, and played together; we have supported each other when times have been difficult and celebrated achievement as fit and necessary. We have made visits out and had visitors in; we have challenged ourselves and have become increasingly resilient and confident (some more than others!). We have even produced two babies, and are expecting a further two! I am incredibly proud to have led the school through another year and could not have wished for better pupils and staff to have worked with.

As the year ends there is the inevitable sadness that goes with farewells. To the amazing teachers that are leaving us; Miss Pittam, Mrs Luscombe, Mrs Nesbitt and Mrs Smout, I say thank you for being such a valued team member and for all the hard work and commitment you have given to the school and the children in your classes. To Miss Oxley, our very own home-grown teacher! (she was in my class once as a pupil!) I wish you every future success as you start your teaching career at Brookland. To Kelly, our Nursery manager, huge thanks and very many congratulations for all you have achieved whilst being with us. To Mr Poole, what a brilliant right-hand man you have been to Mr Sharp and I wish you an absolutely fabulous happy retirement. To Mrs Dennison, thank you and good luck with your new before and after school venture “The Club”. To Mrs Cole you have made a difference to so many children’s lives so thank you for your utmost loyalty and commitment to the life of the school. Finally, our year 6 leavers. Well done everyone, we have done our best by you to give you the skills you need to make the next step on your educational journey. I hope you will remember all that we have taught you and will carry on being the best versions of yourselves you can possibly be.

I have continued to value your support as parents again this year and on behalf of all the staff would like to thank you for the kind messages and gifts that you have shared with us today. It is very thoughtful of you and much appreciated.

May I wish you all a very happy and relaxing summer holiday and I look forward to seeing all our returning and new families in September.

With all good wishes

Good evening

Given that last year we dressed in red and white to “support” England in the men’s World Cup Semi Final match, (we also moved Meet the Teacher if you remember!!!) I feel it’s only right that we do the same for our women’s team. This is a great achievement and one that I feel as educators, we should promote for our own girls. So, on Tuesday, I invite your child to come to school dressed in our national colours of red and white. It’s short notice I know…I’ve only just thought this through! And please don’t go and buy anything specially. I can’t promise the same razzmatazz with the bunting but I’ll do my best for music at the start of school.

Last Friday the weather was kind enough to give us a glorious Summer Fete. Thank you for your tremendous support which enabled the hardworking PTFA to raise and amazing £1,916 for school funds. Brilliant!

We are also doing really well with our recycling of the crisp and other packets we already have £5 in the kitty. Keep them coming!

Sadly Infant sports was rained off but we have a new date for next Tuesday. Finding a suitable time with a very busy school schedule isn't easy so I'm really hoping there won't be any more of those pesky thunderstorms.

The Junior sports yesterday and the Reception class one earlier in the week were both successful and thank you for cheering us all on. It's lovely to see the children happy and smiling and engaged in sport.

Don't forget to put the Meet the Teacher event in your diary Wednesday 10th July at 7pm. (new Reception parents is at 6pm) This is an opportunity for you to meet your child's teacher for next year and to see where their classroom is. It's not really a suitable event for children to attend (hence the later timing) as they will have visited and met their teacher prior to this. At the start of the evening I will speak about the curriculum etc as I know some of you have worries about split year group classes. I will do my best to put those concerns to rest.

Infant Sports
Given the heavy overnight rain and the predicted further thunderstorms and showers, we shall postpone today’s infant sports day. I shall let you know of a new date once I have consulted with staff. We want everyone to enjoy a safe and happy event so I hope you understand and respect the reason behind this decision.

At the moment it is my intention that KS 2 sports will go ahead as planned tomorrow.

My apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Good morning, and what a wet one it is!
We are looking forward to Friday (14th June) and our annual Summer Fete (please pray for sunshine!). The PTFA are working so hard to make it a fabulous event and have been busy sourcing some amazing prizes for the Grand Prize Draw...here a few...as well as the main £100, that you could win:
£40.00 Lash Eyebrow tint at Eleven
MOT Colin Wood Engineering
3 X £25 vouchers for Taste
1 Month membership at the Marsh Academy Leisure Centre
A bottle of "Tattinger" champagne
1 Day ticket for Leeds Castle
That's just a flavour of some the brilliant prizes on offer, so we would really appreciate your efforts on ticket selling!
We shall also have all the traditional fete stalls, as well as the ever popular Bouncy Castle and Ice Cream van. In addition are hoping to have some Pony Rides too!
We are grateful for you your donations of cakes, tombola prizes and bottles for the bottle tombola. Just one last request: If anyone is into making 'fancy pants' cup cakes we are hoping to have a "Vintage" cake stall (as well as the cake plate cake stall) so contributions to this would also be much appreciated.

Thank you as always for your support. I look forward to seeing you on Friday.
