Principal’s Message:

And that’s the end of another half term- only one left!


Firstly, a huge well done to all our Year 6 children who took their recent SATs tests in their stride and are still working so hard on their writing. They are an AMAZING bunch of children who have made us all very proud. Our Year 2 children have also been taking their SATs tests and Mrs Emmerson and Mrs Bakes have been thrilled with how hard they have all tried. Next half term, our Year 4 children will do their national multiplication tables test and Year 1 will take their phonics tests and I know that they will all do us proud also.

This week has been ‘Health Week’ across the school. Our Phunky Food Ambassadors delivered assemblies at both sites, children made healthy recipes, we had whole class workout sessions, parent and child fitness sessions and even a visit from The Halifax Panthers.

The lovely Mrs Garland (Year One TA) leaves us today to return to her original career in marketing. She will be greatly missed but I know she will keep in touch and is always welcome to visit.

This half term our KS2 children have become real life singer/songwriters and recording artists. Thanks to the wonderful Mrs Smelt, we have produced our own jubilee song for the queen- we will share it on Seesaw shortly.

This afternoon we hold our Jubilee Jamboree on the KS1 field and are bringing together the whole school for the first time in what seems like forever. You are all welcome to join us after school on the field for our summer fair. A huge thank you to FOGS for all their hard work in making it possible. We are all very excited to celebrate together as one big family. One polite reminder though, please walk to KS1 wherever possible and be mindful of the local residents. I believe the police will also be coming long to monitor the roads around school.

As you will already be aware, The Greetland Residents’ Organisation have their own jubilee celebrations at Clay House next Friday (1-5pm). Our KS2 children have created sculptures and bunting to be displayed at the event. Their work is amazing so pop along if you can to see it- it sounds like it’s going to be a fabulous event.

Wishing you all a relaxing (hopefully sunny) half term break. Remember that we come back to school on Tuesday the 7th of June as the Monday is our day in lieu of the jubilee Bank Holiday.

Mrs Crowther
