Two blogs in a week!!
The final week of Spring Term saw a range of exciting events happen, namely PlayDay and Argyle.
The children were amazing in their performances - as classes, groups and individuals. It is definitely one of my 'FAVOURITE' days of the year. Everyone embraces the day, no matter how accomplished, and children (and staff) are brave enough to have a go and if it didn't go quite right, carry on or have another go. How resilient! The talent seems to start at a much younger age and isn't it amazing that suddenly, out of the blue, an individual shares their hidden talent? What a finale to a very busy term! Take a look at the article and images from the 'My Favourite Things' Musical PlayDay.
To celebrate the 'official' opening of the MUGA and unveiling of our new sports kits, sponsors and Argyle Community Trust coaches were invited in. Every class had an opportunity, throughout the morning, to 'play' in the MUGA. Even some teachers and sponsors took part! We were very lucky to have Plymouth Argyle's Pilgrim Pete join us in the fun and entertain the children. Photos will soon be uploaded in year group pages. Of course we need to say a massive thank you to our sponsors - Royal William Yard Apartments, Imagine and Newcombe Electrical, all of whom sponsored our new running vests, designed by pupils, and staff top, as well as FroWS, for their funding of the new black and blue, team kit. All looked very smart. Thank you to all who made the day and kit possible.
Hopefully you will have had opportunity to read the Spring Term Governors' Newsletter demonstrating how active and involved in school life they are, to ensure your children have the best possible opportunities and outcomes. I was very pleased that their dedicated work was recognised by Ofsted - it was clear that they understood and knew the school well. Hopefully, like staff, they will take a well deserved rest?
Encourage your child/children in KS2 to continue with their Accelerated Reading Challenges and who knows, they may be in the next group to gain a treat. We are trying to think of something different each time so wil have to get our thinking caps on! The last winners went to the park for an accelerated play!
Next term is set to busy, especially with the ever changing landscape of education, changes to assessment and funding. We welcome children back on Tuesday 18th April, after the Bank Holiday Monday. Hopefully the weather will be kind and we will have some glorious sun over the next couple of weeks.
Finally I would just like to thank all parents/carers and families, for their continued support and to wish all a wonderful spring break!
