End of Term News
End of Summer Term News 2016
Thursday 21st July sees the end of what has been another exciting and happy year at Nettleham Church of England Aided Junior School. We end our term with the summer having finally arrived and a superb group of children filling the school with enthusiasm, creativity and happiness.
Over the past term our pupils have gained a great deal from a mind boggling range of curriculum enrichment activities – our Koinonia Day was just fantastic, our French day was ‘formidable’, ‘Let Loose’ – the year 6 performance – was simply amazing, a group of our Y5 children attended the preview screening of their film at the British Film Institute in London, we saw the culmination of the Making History Project which creatively explored family and heritage, visits have taken place to Whisby, Gibraltar Point, Kingswood, Belton House, Leicester, Lincoln Castle and the Holocaust Centre amongst others. Many other enrichment activities have brought school further to life, including sports activities (with our athletics teams performing incredibly well at City Athletics tournaments, with our boys’ team triumphing as overall champions), Bikewise, swimming, visits to Secondary School and ongoing coaching in a range of sports.
The school Summer Fayre was a great success, dodging the rain seamlessly, and allowing the year 6 to explore their ‘enterprising’ nature once again. Sports Day was, once again, swift, happy and great!
There have been so many outstanding achievements, so many challenges overcome and so many massive leaps this year for our children – seeing this makes our job in school a privilege and a joy.
Thank you also to those of you who have returned the duplicate pupil and parent comment sheets that came out with your child’s reports; we still welcome further comment sheets if haven’t returned them already.
Fond Farewells to staff
We are so very sad to say goodbye to Mrs Rachel Moreton – we wish her the very best of luck in the future, she will be an amazing headteacher. Mrs Joan Huckle also ends her formal teaching relationship with us after many years, we know that we will continue to see her in school – put simply her contribution to our school family is just massive.
Saying goodbye to our Year 6 pupils never gets any easier – they are a superb, clever and creative group of children and we are privileged to have been part of their education. We look forward to hearing of great things from them in the future.
Thursday 21st July – Please note that school closes half an hour early at 3pm.
Opening on Monday 5th September – School begins again at 8.55am.
Wishing you a wonderful and warm summer break.
