Next week’s value is Reflection

“As water reflects the face, so one’s life reflects the heart.” Proverbs 27:19

Dear Parents/Carers

What a busy week of home and school learning.  It has been wonderful to walk round the school, see, and hear the children so engaged in their activities. 

The Key worker group have been very creative and have tie-dyed fabric, which has been woven beautifully through the fence outside Year 3.

Year 6 have had an active couple of weeks, den building, toasting marshmallows, taking part in team challenges and had an archery session with a leader from High Ashurst.  Not quite their planned residential, but lots of fun!

Year 1 have been using their ‘ice cream’ parlor to help them with their maths and have written a comparison of how holidays are different from the past. (Quite apt in the current situation!)

Reception class have been performing ‘The Little Seed’ as they have been learning about the different parts of plants and what they need to grow.

All classes are planting sunflowers donated from the Sunflower Project in Chiddingfold.  The aim is to spread joy whilst attracting bees and butterflies to our gardens. Let’s see who has tallest sunflower by the end of term!

At home, in place of their residential, Year 5 have taken part in an orienteering challenge set by Miss Clark.  The response to this has been wonderful and all other year groups and families are welcome to participate.  Do send in your photos!  Thank you Miss Clark for all your time and effort, you have brought great joy to many!

Years 2, 3 and 4 have been busy with science experiments; this has made Mrs Newton very happy. They have also written beautiful poems, baked delicious cakes and created beautiful pieces of art.

Well done everyone, both home and school learners.  We are so impressed with your commitment and the high standard of your work.

For my part, I have been meeting with staff for their appraisals, (never thought the word, pandemic would feature in an appraisal!), have met with SLT to ‘plan’ for September, and am looking forward to meeting with the headteachers from the Haslemere Confederation on Friday to discuss transition and plans for the next academic year.

Have a lovely weekend, and Happy Father’s Day to all of our wonderful dads.  Hope you have a fabulous day!

Mrs Sheila Buckley

Head teacher
