A New School Year

07th September 2016 Ian Tyas Ian Tyas

The first day back at school is one of my favourite days of the year. I love seeing the children coming into school that first morning with shiny shoes and a skip in their step, filled with all the excitement of the new school year. It is great to see the school family back together again and to welcome new family members. If you are new to our school then a very warm welcome – we are glad you are joining us! It is also great to welcome back familiar faces – many of whom seem to have grown enormously over the summer!

The year ahead already looks to have many exciting events building on the success of previous years but also adding in some new events too.  In just a few weeks’ time we will be taking the Y5 and Y6 children on their residential visit to London.  For those who are going, there is a final information meeting on Tuesday 20th September at 3.30pm in Oak Class.  We are all very excited!

Monday 3rd October looks to be a very exciting day when we have a special, highly talented and very well-known ‘sports person’ coming to the school.  More details to follow…

In January the KS2 children will have the opportunity to take part in Young Voices, a spectacular stadium singing extravaganza.  Parents of these children will be receiving initial information about this in a separate letter.

As in previous years, we have already provisionally booked places for the whole school to watch the pantomime at the Lincolnshire Performing Arts Centre (LPAC) at Lincoln University in December.  This year we are looking forward to an exciting production of ‘Treasure Island’.

Always looking for irresistible learning opportunities, there are a number of new events planned for this year.  Look through the school calendar on our website to spot them, including ‘Lego Week’, ‘Christmas Fayre’, ‘May Dances’, and a whole school trip to Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

There is a huge amount of information on the school website (see separate letter) and it is now really easy to make sure that you are kept up to date with all the exciting learning opportunities that children take part in.  Do take the time to explore!

Many families will have had holidays over the summer break, whether near or far, but I wonder if, like me, you have a wonderful time, but as you journeyed back you were looking forward to being in your own home again?  The end of the summer holidays always feels like this too as we head back to school.

Welcome home!
