In full swing...

End of year events are in full swing now, although it's still difficult to believe we've almost reached the end of another academic year. How does the time fly by so quickly? We still have lots we want to achieve before the end of the term, even though we're also busy making plans for the next academic year.
Rehearsals for Symphony 2017 are in full flow and the children have worked incredibly hard. Tickets are still available from The Deco box office and we're lucky in that the view from every seat in this theatre is superb. We've cut the number of full rehearsal days down from 15 to 7 this year and the children are responding to the challenge. Groups have worked hard all year in order that their pieces are performance-ready next week and it's now a case of making sure that it all fits together seamlessly! The enthusiasm, energy and behaviour of the children has been exemplary and I congratulate each and every one of them. The children who are not participating in the show have continued to work with enthusiasm, remaining fully engaged in lessons and also behaving in an exemplary way. Thank you all for being so fabulous. Costumes and props have been sourced and provided and I would like to thank all our families for their continued support in helping us whenever we need it. Lastly, I would like to thank our fabulous staff team, who have worked tirelessly this week - either in rehearsals, classrooms, offices or the grounds, ensuring that school continues with the same high standards as always. Add to this, temperatures in excess of 30 degrees and I think you'll agree that it's been a tiring week for everyone. I hope that you all; staff, children and parents, are having a relaxing weekend.
In addition to the Summer Show, we're also busy organising Sports Day, Transfer Day, Open Afternoon, Meet the Teacher, Book Fair, Reception Home visits, Stay & Play sessions, Y6 Leavers' events and an afternoon tea to say goodbye to Mrs Yates. Plus, we're writing your child's annual report which you'll receive before the end of term. Please check The Gazette for details on all these events.
Finally, I'd like to wish our Ballroom Competition Team the very best of luck tonight at the Derngate, where they are taking part in the Dancing Schools UK final. Mrs Wagg and I will be there, along with all your families, cheering you on! Good luck and have fun!
