Well, here we are at the end of our first term of 2019-2020 and what a busy term it has been! It seems hard to imagine that there have only been 16 school weeks since we all came together back in September. It has been a hugely successful term in the classrooms, on the stage and sports fields and beyond.
Some of the highlights of the term have included, cross country competitions, football matches, choir performances at The Pavilion Theatre and so much more.
We would like to thank all of you for your support over the term. It has been lovely to see the children looking so smart in their uniforms and making a real effort to be such brilliant ambassadors for the school; we are really proud of each and every one of them and so grateful for the support with this from home. Thank you also for the massive improvement in children arriving to school on time and ready to learn. This has really helped us make sure that individuals and classes have a smooth and purposeful start to the day.
There are lots of plans we have for the new year to continue to try and improve getting into and out of school at the beginning and end of the day as there as so many of us now.
The last few weeks in school have been full of much excitement and festive cheer as they should be. The children have all performed brilliantly this week in various shows and performances. To quote a famous film, “We are proud of each and everyone of them they are all little pockets of stardust.”
A special thank you to our wonderful PTA who have led many of the Christmas events including the Christmas Fayre, visits from Santa and Christmas dinner.
Today, the whole school has spent a wonderful morning together as a Kingsleigh family.
Mr Lumber the festive cheer with his DJ-ing skills and even dressed up in some crazy Christmas clothing! The children all had a great time and it was the prefect way to end what has been a great start to the newest leg of our journey. The Highlight was the appearance to the boy band, “Wrong Direction,” whose lead singer said, “Singing on a balcony to an audience of nearly one thousand is a dream come true for us!”
All the staff would like to wish our parents and friends of the school a very merry Christmas and a happy and peaceful new year. We look forward to seeing you all back on Tuesday 7th January following on from staff training on the Monday.
