Dear Parents

The week was off to a flying start with oranges being mummified in Year 4 for their Ancient Egyptian topic. Potions were being made in Year 3 to celebrate Roald Dahl day and Year 5 and Year 6 taking part in a UK Parliament online workshop. What a Monday!

It’s great to see the children settling in and taking the measures that we have put in place to keep everyone safe seriously. Year groups are settling into their new routines and the one way system.

Thank you to all those that entered the ‘Name the library’ competition. There have been hot debates going on to decide the winner after so many fabulous entries. But we have had to come to a decision.

We would like to announce that the name for the Deepdene library will be –
“The Never Ending Story”

Well done Isabella Kreel in Year 6. We are now in the process of having a sign made which we will share with you as soon as we can.

Please can we ask that you arrive at school as close to 8.30am as possible. It is really valuable teaching time in class. On Mondays our outside singing assembly starts at 8.50am so it is really important to be on time on this day.

Lots more children attended choir this week and they all sounded fantastic. We hope to serenade you one morning as you arrive at school.

Children in Year 6 have been applying for their senior positions and will now start to prepare for interviews. We wish them luck in gaining the positions that they have applied for.

Thank you for all your generous donations for the Jeans for Genes charity. We have raised £133.48 for the charity and we will make sure this is sent to them straight away.

We wish you a lovely weekend.

Mrs Gane and Ms Hayward
