Message from Mr Waiting
Dear Parents and Carers,
We had the exciting visit of the farm animals to Alexandra this week. Nursery and reception children were able to meet goats, feed chickens and see the lambs grazing. The animals were kept in the Forest School area and prompted excitement from the whole school at break and lunchtime, as the photographs below demonstrate. It was a great learning opportunity for all involved.
Next week we will be celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. On Thursday we are inviting all children to wear red, white and blue as part of a mufti day and throughout the week the children will be taking part in assemblies and activities acknowledging the occasion. We are also excited to launch an art competition in the newsletter today run in partnership with John Lewis, Kingston. The children have been given a silhouette of the Queen and we are inviting them to create a design representing the Platinum Jubilee and the Queen. They might choose to create a collage, draw a picture or paint their own interpretation of the Royal Family. All entries need to be in by 9am Wednesday 25th May with winners announced in three different age categories on Thursday. Some of the children’s designs and the winning entries will be displayed in the John Lewis Café in the week commencing 30th May. Children do not have to take part if they choose not to but we are looking forward to seeing their creative designs.
Finally, I would like to acknowledge Year 2 for the hard work they have put into their SATS this week. The children have made their teachers very proud of them.
Have a great weekend,
