Blog July 2019

Week 1st-5th July 2019
On Monday your children went to Thomas Hardye School to meet children's author Laura James. She talked about the inspirations for her stories, read an extract from one of her books and then modelled how she creates stories around her central characters.
The children were brilliant; asking questions sensibly and trying hard to answer her questions. The children who brought books to the session had them signed which was a real treat!
Week 8th-12th July 2019
Thank you to everyone who supported their child at the swimming gala this week. The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and tried hard to show how their swimming has improved. The weather was kind to us and the atmosphere from all supporters was great.
I have placed an assortment of reading activities onto Education City this week for the summer holidays. Please encourage your child to have a go on some of these over the holiday and to take part in the library’s summer reading challenge.
Thank you for your support with the children’s learning over the year and supporting the year 2 team. 
Have a wonderful summer holiday.
