Final week of the half-term brings sunshine to our doors!

Well what a lovely photo I have this week, of one of our many piano pupils enjoying the opportunity to show off the talents they have learnt with Dots and Squiggles. There are more photos on our Photo Gallery page. It is fabulous to see pupils learn a musical instrument, applying dedication and discipline to something that brings so much joy to others. Remember if you fancy learning something new, try guitar, drums and/or piano with our fabulous peripatetic teachers.

This week, Harriers won the House Team Points race and there was a joint victory for Years 1 and 4 in the reading five times a week challenge with both classes achieving twenty-two pupils. They will both have strong additions to add to their coloured paper chains. 

On Wednesday, I had a chance to show a representative from the Local Authority around the school to share in all the wonderful things we have been doing. She was very impressed by the good behaviour in the school, not to mention the evident family ethos in all we do and the progressive and challenging content within the pupils' books. This was brilliant news, particularly in English, where we have been following a new approach since the beginning of this half-term. The pupils have made significant improvements to their writing and this has been evident in all classes. The staff deserve high praise for this also. 

Today, the Year 6 leavers had their action shots taken and as we progress even closer to the end of the year, we hope they enjoy their four fun Fridays. Year 4 also have a World War 2 trip to Gressenhall to look forward to after half-term. 

After half-term, we look forward to the Christian value of Forgiveness with a closer look at prayers of forgiveness. The "R" will be responsibility. 

I cannot believe I only have one half-term remaining at Homefield; where has the last seven years gone? I hope it will be action-packed, bright and one to be remembered. 

I hope those attending the half-term Sports' Holiday Club enjoy themselves also. 

Please stay safe everyone because COVID-19 is still very much alive.
