Junior Department News
‘May then is the month, if not of fulfillment, at least of promise.’
John Henry Newman
Welcome back to the Summer Term, surely everyone’s favourite, with longer days and warmer weather (well, soon hopefully!). Hard to believe that I have already nearly done a full year at Beechwood.
The term is fully underway despite only having been in for seven school days, with lots of fantastic and interesting learning already taking place. I have been delighted to visit each classroom and see what the pupils are learning and how much they are engaged in it already. Reception have been busy growing things, Year 1 have been relishing their Roald Dahl stories and Year 2 have been comparing life in the past with our lives now.
In a couple of weeks’ time all our year groups will be going on their trips or having their curriculum enrichment day in the same week!! This will be a very busy time for all so do keep an eye out for the letters that will be winging their way to you very soon with all the arrangements. Also, I encourage you to keep checking on the live iSAMS0 calendar on the Parent Portal. as this will help you plan for key events this term that I am certain you won’t want to miss.
Our new additions to the Junior Department have started brilliantly. The Gardening Club has already weeded, dug and planted, and the Early Morning Drop Off is proving very popular – with parents and children alike!
On this note, if you have any feedback or suggestions, positive or negative, about our wrap-around care and After School Activities for the Junior Department children, then I am happy to hear them. It is important that we continue to listen to our parent body and seek to improve our provision where we can.
Enjoy the Coronation Weekend and another Bank Holiday!
