Newsletter 22nd April 2016

Dear Parents,

Academy Consultation

This consultation is still open and will run until 5th May 2016.  We have had a number of helpful comments so far, but if you have not yet responded, please make sure you get your reply in.


I wanted to let you know that we have rearranged the lunchtime clubs rota due to Jacob’s Field being on Friday and orchestra on Wednesday.  There are still a few places in most clubs, so do ask at the office if your child wishes to join one.

New Children

Welcome to Bear and Alexander (Nursery) and Justin (Year 5) who have joined us recently.  Do keep a look out for them in the playground and make them welcome.


Today we say goodbye to Mrs Hatwell, who works in Willow Class.  I would like to thank her for the work she has done with the school and to wish her and her family well for the future.

Art Competition

The children are invited to design a cover for the programme for the Village Fete.  It will be held from 12 noon to 5.00pm on Saturday 25th June and should be a great event with plenty of fun for everybody.  There will be a dog show, falconry display, games and races for all ages, a tug of war and lots of other events.  If your child wishes to enter the competition they should do a black and white A4 picture (to be shrunk) and bring it to the school office by 6th June (end of half term).  Contact Raffy if you have any questions.

May Day – Friday 27th May

We are starting to get ready for our May Day celebrations.  The children need to be at school for around 10.30am dressed in their May finery, and many families enjoy taking the morning to get ready, but Breakfast Club will be open as normal for those that wish.  There will be NO Italian Club that day.

Queen’s Birthday Celebrations – Sunday 12th June

Islip Village is holding a celebration event during the afternoon.  We hope to have some of the children performing their May dances and also to have a singing group.  Keep the date free!

This week we congratulated:

  • Willow Class: Phoebe, for showing positive learning attitudes and taking risks;
  • Ash Class: Noah H, for independent abacus work; Emily, for creating a great non-fiction book;
  • Oak Class: Imogen, for fantastic work in all areas; Islay, for a brilliant play script;
  • Beech Class: Charlie, for great enthusiasm in all subjects.

Best wishes, Huw Morgan – Headteacher

Our Christian value for the term is Justice.  Ask your child about how the King of Denmark helped Jewish people in World War Two.
