Summer Term Issue 30 – 18 June 2015

Dear Parents/Carers
The wet weather not withstanding, feedback from the children on the Magna Carta celebrations was that it was great fun! I really enjoyed the jousting and was pleased that so many people stopped to admire the shields our children had made. Our Treble Recorder Club started the musical entertainment at the celebrations. They gave an admirable performance of three medieval pieces which Mr Hamilton had arranged especially for them. Well done to Jon, Nathan, Zac, Aidan and Max!
Kind regards
Sue Stamp

EMPTY CLASSROOM DAY

Today is empty classroom day and we will all be spending the afternoon learning outside!

 

YEAR 2 CLASS TEACHER APPOINTMENT

I am very pleased to be able to tell you that last Friday we appointed Miss Rosanna Monkcom to be our new Year 2 teacher from September. Many of you will already know Miss Monkcom from her time at Tiny Acorns. Miss Monkcom is currently teaching Year 2 at Nettlebed School in Oxfordshire and she comes highly recommended by Mr Hankey, our previous Deputy Head, who is now the Headteacher at Nettlebed. We are really looking forward to welcoming her to the team at Long Crendon.

SAINSBURY’S VOUCHERS

If you have any Sainsbury’s vouchers, please make sure they are brought into school as soon as possible.

Thank you PTA The next PTA meeting is on Tuesday 30th June, all welcome. Also, the latest PTA minutes are now available to view on the website.

NATIONAL BIKE WEEK

Thank you to everyone who supported our ‘Cycle to School’ week by pedalling and scooting to school. Also to Haddenham Cycle Training for providing training courses to Key Stage 2 children. Just a gentle reminder that you must not cycle on the school drive. You should cross the road with the crossing patroller, on foot, and walk your bike on the school path.

Thank you.
