Newsletters from the Head

From the Head Teacher

We are now into the final part of the school year and, with only 7 weeks left until the end of the term, we have a lot of events to fit in.

On 21stJune we are holding our annual Sports Afternoon, starting at 12.30 pm.  The children will be competing in their house teams and should therefore be wearing the appropriate coloured T shirt (further details will be circulated in due course).  We are going to use the format which proved very successful last year; the KS1 children will be going back into school for part of the afternoon and then returning to the field for the final races. The BSA will be selling refreshments and the cakes will be provided by our very own Bourn Bistro.  Let’s all hope for a fine, sunny afternoon. However, if the weather is poor we may need to postpone the event.  If this happens you will be notified by text and information will be posted on the School website.   Please do not telephone the School Office to enquire about decision: we will advise you as soon as it is made.

Bourn Proms, which is always a highlight of the year, is fast approaching.  This takes place on Friday,
16th June and tickets are now on sale.  These can be purchased from either the School Office or the Post Office.  Please do not delay as they disappear very quickly; every year there are a number of disappointed people.

Mrs Culley has been very busy planning a Reading Week, which starts on Monday, 26th June. I know that it is going to be great fun for everyone. Please look out for further details as Mrs Culley will be asking for support from parents.

Year 6 pupils have a very busy last few weeks. At the beginning of July they will be spending five very active days at the Frontier Centre in Northampton.  This is followed by a ‘fun afternoon’ in Bourn with Year 6 pupils from other local Primary schools, the Year 6 BBQ and finally the Leavers’ Play on 19th July.  Other classes are also going out on day visits, which include a trip to Flag Fen, near Peterborough, and a visit to the beach at Old Hunstanton.

The details of the classes for next year will be sent to you as soon as everything has been finalised and before the “Moving On” morning on Wednesday 12th July.  For those of you who are new to the School, this is where the children have a taster morning with their new class and teacher. Annual pupil reports are due to be sent out in the week beginning 10th July.

The term ends on Thursday, 20th July with a special Assembly at 9.00 am and a lunchtime picnic on the field, which parents are invited to join us.  Parents will be able to take their children home following the end of the lunch break at 1.00 pm.

Please keep on checking your email and the School website as there will be a lot of additional information sent out in the next few weeks about these and other events happening before the end of term.
