The highlight of this week has been our annual ‘Sports Day’. Thankfully, the weather was really kind and allowed the event to go ahead without a hitch. I really enjoy this event because all of the children appear to be having a really good time -  even those for whom PE is not their favourite subject. Osborne were the champions this year and apparently they have not won it for a while so it is good that we do not have the same house winning it every year. For those who do not know the results I have listed them below:




I would like to thank all of the staff for helping to make ‘Sports Day’ such a success and I would like to give special thanks to Mr Mills for organising and planning the whole event. He cannot even start to relax now because he still has a lot of sporting events before the end of term - next week he has to take some of the children to a rounders tournament and The Potters Bar Primary Schools Athletic event.

Sports Day was not the only event that we held on Thursday as the governors held a breakfast so that parents could come and meet them to talk about the school. I know that all the governors found it a very enjoyable and informative meeting and will be acting upon some of your suggestions in the next few weeks.

We have been lucky this week because the weather has been so nice. It is apparently going to get even hotter next week. May I please remind you that when it is hot the children should put on sunscreen before they come to school and they should come to school with a bottle of water and sunscreen.

Next week is parent consultation week for Years 1 – 6 and so I know I will see many of you then. The consultations at this time of year are for you to see how much progress the children have made against the targets that were set for them in February. We are also introducing something new this year as we will be giving all parents a copy of how the children have achieved against their age related targets in reading, writing, maths and science. This is in response to parents asking to be given more information about how their children are doing in school and we hope that parents do find these sheets useful.

I hope you all have a pleasant weekend. The weather is going to be pleasant but I imagine that that will not bother many of you during Sunday lunchtime as many of you will be indoors watching England playing their second match in the World Cup. I hope they are successful because it does appear to raise everyone’s spirits when they are doing well.
