Dear Parents and Carers

Sports Day

Thank you to all of the parents who were able to attend Sports Day on Thursday, and to all of the parents who have given feedback about the event. It was a lovely event, and I am pleased that many parents and children appreciated the increased emphasis on teamwork and attitude. 

The glorious weather helped to give the day a warm community feel. Thanks again to Mrs Marzetti for organising a fab day of activity, competition, collaboration and enjoyment. More happy memories made!

The final scores were 

1st place = Hawk 155

2nd place = Kestrel 152

3rd place = Falcon 142

The Priory Oaks – Ofsted inspection

The inspection carried out was a full Early Years Register Inspection.

 Although we are judged using the Early Years Ofsted handbook, which is also used in school inspections- unlike school-we are graded by the following criteria:

  • Met
  • Not Met with actions
  • Not Met with enforcement

 We are pleased to share that we achieved the grading Met, and to receive this means we are fully compliant, and that the club offers that expected of the Early Years inspection handbook and beyond. The Inspector gave no recommendations for the setting. A huge congratulations to Lewis, playleader, and the team- great team effort!

  • The children enter happy and settled
  • There is a keen interest in every individual who attends the club
  • Children’s voice is very important in the club
  • All the children have fun
  • The staff have a genuine interest in every child, and want to ensure the children enjoy their time there
  • The staff work well as a team and demonstrate excellent communication
  • Positive support and feedback from parents, with no feedback of things to change
  • Parents are happy with the provision, and how their children have settled into club, and share that they are never bored
  • The Ofsted Inspector herself shared that she would be more than happy to send her own children to Priory Oaks!

Non-school uniform – Friday 5th July

Pupils will be able to wear non-school uniform on Friday 5th July in exchange for a bottle donation towards the PTA Summer Fair bottle tombola. These donations will be collected by the PTA outside the school gate on the morning of Friday 5th July.

Inspirational Sports Assembly Series

Our June Inspirational Sports Assembly Series began in style last Friday with an interesting and thoughtful look at the sporting endeavours and achievements of Verity Lemm, a member of our Priory community and auntie to Gracie (Y3) and Teddy (Y1). Beginning her sporting career as a competitive swimmer it was fascinating to learn how the grounding in competitive sport has shaped much of Verity’s life and led to a lifelong passion for sports. The children were captivated by her story and enjoyed learning about some new sports like water polo. Thank you Verity!

This Friday we are hosting Ronald Duncan, British Men’s Downhill Champion. Super G and combined champion. A family friend of the Hughes family (Y4), Ronald also competed in the Winter Olympics in 1988 and 1992. Check in next week for the low down on what is sure to be a fascinating and inspiring assembly.

News from Year R…

What have we been learning about in Year R this week?

The children have had a fantastic week with the chicks. They have enjoyed holding them, watching them grow and helping to look after them. They have even made us laugh when one of the chicks decided that their food bowl was their new bed!!

Each child has been writing in their own ‘Chick’ booklet with some interesting facts about them. Once their booklet is complete the children will bring it home to share with you.

Our chicks will now be going to new homes. It has been such a wonderful experience for the children and it has been clear to see how excited the children have been with the chicks being in Year R. Year R has certainly being an attractive class this week with many people across the school visiting regularly to see the chicks! Some of the chicks are going to be homed by Mrs Waspe, which is great news, as she can keep us informed as to how the chicks are growing and getting on. Good luck Mrs Waspe and to her family!

Year R had a wonderful first Sports Day. It was great to see them all working hard for their team and having an enjoyable day. It was lovely to see you all there cheering your child on with their activities. We hope you all had an enjoyable time.

Next week:

We are going to be exploring one of our core texts ‘The Gigantic Turnip’. The children will be getting to know the story and retelling it with their friends. They will also be writing some captions to explain what is happening in some of the pictures taken from the story.

The children will also be exploring and describing what a turnip looks like. They will also be completing some observational drawings of a turnip using pastels.

In Maths the children will be exploring positional language. They will practise describing to a partner where to position an object to develop their ability to give clear instructions to someone else.

Have a lovely weekend.
