It has been another fantastic, hectic and inspiring term at Glemsford Primary Academy. It was a lovely way to finish the term - being part of such a lovely Easter celebration at the church. To see the church so full and to hear the superb singing made for a special afternoon. This was the final event of a term that had many highlights.
I thoroughly enjoyed being able to spend 24 hours with our year 5 and 6 children at Kingswood. To see so many children really challenging themselves and stepping out of their comfort zone was very inspiring. The last week of term also saw year 3 and 4 perform their version of The Tempest. The confidence of all of the pupils on and off the stage was amazing and I was proud of them all. Thank you to everyone who helped make this production such a memorable one. Another memorable event was our sponsored run and visit from Laura Samuel. As it stands we have raised over £1500 which will be split between the school, funding Laura Samuel`s training and Alzheimer’s Society.
The Spring term saw the school closed due to the heavy snow. For those children that were able to come into school on the Wednesday, they will no doubt remember the opportunity of being able to pummel their teachers and teaching assistants with snowballs. Thank you for everyone`s understanding during this week – it is not easy deciding to stay open or not but in the end I think we got it right.
Next term promises to be just as busy. We have several trips planned, a Summer Fayre, Sports Day and many more exciting learning opportunities. Year 2 (w/c 21st May) and Year 6 (w/c 14th May) will be taking their SATs. It is essential that your child attends school during these weeks.
I am pleased to tell you that once again we have very few staff changes at Glemsford next term. We have recently appointed Mel Crown who will be joining us on Wednesdays in a new role as our Family Liaison Worker. Congratulations to Mrs Dobedoe, who will be working across the county every Wednesday in the Summer term, to help Primary Schools with their teaching of Maths. The class will be taught by Mrs Corke.
I hope you have a restful Easter break and the sun finally comes out. I look forward to seeing you all back at school on Tuesday 17th April.
