    Moving Up

    This week, the children have their first taste of moving up to the classes they will be in from September.  It's an exciting time - class lists will be available after that day as we like the children to find this out first.  We spend a considerable amount of time discussing who will be in what class and base this on month of birth, boy/girl, friendship groups, social skills, learning needs - they are not decisions taken lightly and are based on what we know about your child in school.  The way children learn here is very collaborative, across the whole year group they are in, so, whilst they may find themselves not with their best friend, rest assured they will be working together at times anyway and there is always playtime and lunch time to share news and spend time together.  
      Summer Fayre Big Thank You
        The FOTF have asked me to pass on their sincere thanks to all those of you who came to the summer fair on Saturday - your support is invaluable.  Equally a huge thank you to all those of you who volunteered your time to set up, run stalls and clear away at the end - without you events such as this would not happen.  News will follow on how much was raised but it was a great community day - thank you.

        Things to Do

        We sometimes get sent information that you might be interested in re events outside school - two events are below:- 

        Swindon Young Musicians will be holding our Senior Gala concert at the Wyvern Theatre on Tuesday 18th July 2017, and are offering tickets for the event completelyFREE of charge! This will be a fantastic live music experience for the whole family involving the best young musical talent that Swindon has to offer! The show will also include a professional military band, The Waterloo Band & Bugles of The Rifles – a FREE opportunity to see these professional musicians performing live is not to be missed!
