Dear Families,

Firstly, I must say a huge thank to anyone involved in any way in our Street Festival Day. The
morning was spent with classes undertaking their own activities in their own spaces. I was lucky
enough to be able to have a steel band practice, outside, and we enjoyed having Mrs Hall and Mrs
Smythe as our very appreciative first audience. Thank goodness we squeezed in that practice as only
a few minutes later the heavens opened and we ended up emptying the pans as they were full to
the brim with water!

Despite having to bring the CUBOID stage indoors, we managed a talent filled set with Faye opening
the occasion with The National Anthem, perfectly played on her cornet. All children had a chance to
shine on the stage, body percussion, robot dancing, sound poems to name a few. We also enjoyed
watching the various new circus performers our tiny schools are generating! We finished this section
of our festival with a playground performance and steel band aerobics.

The early evening then was a relaxed social event with both school communities coming together
over a disco and ice cream. A perfect summer festival. We loved it! Thank you all!

This week the Year 6 children have had a day out at Crucial Crew followed by a treat at Hollywood
Bowl. I have heard that they had a terrific time! Well done all Year 6 children (and their adults).
Finally, I am letting you know the plans for classes for September although changes have been
shared in advance with some classes.

Sand Hutton: Class 1 Mrs Darling and Mrs Jones, Class 2 Mrs Smith and Mrs Naylor, Class 3 Miss

Warthill: Infants Mrs Wilson and Mrs Liston Juniors Mrs Madge with Mrs Naylor teaching Year 3 and
4 M, T & W mornings)

The adjustments which have been made are budget driven and with as little change as possible.
Unfortunately, Miss Branston won’t be with us in September. We have enjoyed her contributions to
our school communities since Christmas and wish her well in her future endeavours.

As we head into the final week of our very busy year, we look forward to seeing many of you at
Leavers’ Assemblies. We also hope that the Year 6 Leavers are ready for their many challenges this
evening….challenges first and pizza second!

With every best wish,
Beverley Pawson
