The Hobbit - Wednesday 11th March 2020

Please help by contributing towards The Hobbit by either donating £2 through Parentpay or by putting £2 in the bucket on the day at the gates

Thank you!

12 children from KS2 took part in the DRET cross country event at MAA on Wednesday. Overall, the children came 2nd and three children were awarded medals for coming in the top three for their age group. All of our children were also competing with the year group above them so this shows how well they performed! In addition to our success from the overall competition, we also had a member of MAPS who stopped to help another boy in his race when he fell over. He showed our school virtues and continued to run with fantastic determination.

Well done all of the cross country runners!

Our ‘drop-off’ service is one-of-a-kind, and something that we are very lucky to have. Many schools cannot offer something like this, and to ensure that we can keep this unique service running we are revising the staffing of this.

As we work with this transition we would appreciate your patience.

Monday: Steve Summers (Friends of MAPS)

Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday: Steven Hobbs (MAPS Teaching Assistant)

Friday: Steve Wilbourne (DRET Site Staff)

Please be reminded that those supporting with this do so to give us this unique service and as an additional support; please show respect at all times.

Miss Wrights running club are hosting this event at the Obelisk Center in Kingsthorpe, if you would like to enter this family fun event, please go on https://endurancecui.active.com/new/events/67434551/select-race

Dear Parents and Carers,

Children in Year 1 will all be taking part in a phonics screening check during the Summer Term.

The phonics screening check is designed to confirm whether individual children have learned phonic decoding and blending skills to an appropriate standard.

To provide more information about this, you are invited to attend a workshop to learn more about how we support children during phonics sessions and what you can do to support your child at home for the phonics test.

This will take place on Thursday 12th March, in the school hall, from 3:40pm until 4:00pm. The session will run again on Friday morning (13th March), from 8:40am until 9:00am. A powerpoint presentation will also be available electronically, if any parents are unable to attend either workshop.

Entrance to the school hall, on both occasions, will be through the school reception.

With best wishes

Graham Trotter

Next week will be the Key Stage 2 assembly
