Spring Term Newsletter 1st March 2019

Dear Parents,

I hope you all had a wonderful half term and have managed to make the most of the lovely weather of late.

World Book Day

Our term is off to a great start with lots of excitement in the build up to World Book Day (WBD), which takes place next Thursday. The children will receive their WBD vouchers which they will be able to exchange for the amazing books on offer this year. The following week will be our ‘Take one Book week’. Each class uses a book to inspire writing, drama, art and, of course, reading.

Autumn Term Newsletter 20th December 2018

As the song goes, ‘It’s the most wonderful time of the year’ and it really has been in school recently. Our Reception children did a super Nativity and I know that all of you who came to watch loved it as much as we did. Our Y1 ‘Carols around the Christmas Tree’ was so well supported by family members and our children really enjoyed performing to you all. Our final infant Christmas event was our Y2 ‘Shepherd’s Delight’. It was an exceptional performance by all our Y2 children, from the number of songs they had to learn to their clear speaking and all round feel good factor!  Well done children.

Autumn Term Newsletter 13th December 2018

Our school has seen lots of visitors over the last few weeks: prospective parents and pupils, governors, local authority personel and ex-pupils. Each group has commented on our children saying how polite and well mannered they are as well as their ability to explain what they are learning and what a suportive and engaging atmosphere we have in the classrooms. When you see this day in day out, you treat it as the norm. It is lovely to be reminded how very special our school is. I am very proud of our children.

Autumn Term Newsletter 21st September 2018

Welcome back!

Starting back to school after the long summer break can always take some adjusting too. However, you would never know this was the case with our children!  I have that daily privilege of being able to pop in and out of the classrooms and I am just wowed by the buzz of enthusiasm in each one; they really have come back ready for new learning. Each classroom in our school is looking marvellous as the childrens’ super work is beginning to grace the walls. I am delighted that everyone has returned to school or newly joined our school with the WHPS ‘can do’ attitude.

Summer Term Newsletter 20th July 2018

I cannot believe how quickly this last term has gone. It’s certainly been eventful and full to the brim with SUCCESSES for our children.

Cheltenham week really allowed our children to learn from new experiences while EXPLORING their local surroundings. Lots of trips took place including visits to: Pittville Park, Gotherington Steam Railway for an evacuee experience, the Lido, walk through the town centre with a focus on the historical changes, Bournside School and Crickley Hill to name a few.

This academic year we’ve welcomed families who’ve moved from Bristol, Chippenham, Japan, Nottingham, Rotherham, South Korea, Stroud, Swindon, U.S.A. and Wolverhampton. Our community is so welcoming that it doesn’t take long for our newest pupils to feel they BELONG at Warden Hill Primary School.
