Another holiday is nearly upon us!

This half term is been very busy and the children have been involved in lots of interesting activities, including a successful STEM fair.  Thank you to Miss Stevens and all the parents and helpers who participated.

Year 2 and Year 6 children have been working hard to prepare for their end of Key Stage assessments. Well done to everyone for all your hard work and good luck next week Y6!  Make sure you have a restful weekend and arrive on Monday ready to do your best.

Eventually, the sun came out this term, so we have been able to get outside and get sporty.  Congratulations to the cricket team, who successfully won the inter-school tournament this week.  If the weather continues to be sunny (fingers crossed) please ensure your child has sun cream applied and a hat.

In other news, this term I have been supporting other schools in the Trust and so Mrs Oxborough will be Head of School when I am absent.  Mrs Haynes and Mrs Westnidge will be commencing their maternity leave very soon and I am sure you will all join with me in sending them good wishes.  Congratulations to Miss Stevens, who has successfully obtained a new position for September.  We wish her well and every success in her career. Congratulation also go to Ms Kane, who will be getting married over the half term and will be known as Mrs Kane on her return.

Finally, a reminder that everyone is welcome to attend the inauguration of the new Mayor of Rotherham on the 19th May at Rotherham Minster.  We are very excited that Councillor Alan Buckley will become Mayor this year.  He has been a member of our governing body for many years and we are proud to be asked to perform at his inauguration.

I have included a list of dates/events for your diaries on the reverse of the newsletter for your information.

Enjoy the sun while it lasts!
