Newsletter 7th June 2019

This month we will be looking at the following values:

  • Wisdom
  • Self-control
  • Confidence

Dear Parents,

I hope all the children had a relaxing holiday. They will be very busy in the next few weeks with the rehearsals for the Summer Production on Tuesday 16th July and the various trips that are planned. Please check the dates on the School Life app calendar.
Please note that the PTA wanted you to know that "Whatever the weather, the duck race will go ahead on Sunday". And you never know, the lovely yellow plastic ducks might enjoy the rain although we will keep our fingers crossed for some sunshine!

Meet the Headteacher

We are delighted to be able to invite you to meet Mr Griffin on 28th June. As soon as the children have been dropped off at 8:45-9am, you are very welcome to go to the hall and watch a presentation by Mr Griffin. Some members of the Governors' body and the PTA will be present too.

The PTA has kindly agreed to provide refreshments that morning.

Once the presentation is over, you will be able to go and see what the children have done recently in their classrooms as planned.

Please don't forget to come and immerse yourselves in Egypt and become an Egyptian Explorer Experts at The Yr 3/4 Egyptian museum. 

Attendance

Our school attendance this week is 97.06%. Well done.

The Police visited the FSU!

The FSU children were very excited to meet the three police officers from the Bicester Police Station on Tuesday and it was wonderful to see how much they enjoyed to interact with them. They even had a go at wearing their jackets and hats!!! More photos are available under the tab Events of the School App.

Year 5/6 trip to Cadbury World

As part of their topic work on the Mayan civilisation, Yr 5/6 had a great day learning about the history of chocolate on their trip to Cadbury World. Lots of chocolate tasting took place as well, but this was purely for research purposes!!

Children's safety - This is a message from Mr Wood from Five Acres Primary School

Dear All

I am writing with regard to an incident which took place outside Ambrosden post office at about 8.30am yesterday morning. Two pupils, who were walking to school together, reported being approached by a taxi driver in a taxi asking if they wanted a lift to school. They said no and carried on with their journey on foot.

I have spoken to the police about this matter and they know that I am informing your school. Whilst we don’t want to elevate levels of fear, this is certainly inappropriate does seem to be highly unusual behaviour.

Best wishes
Darrell Wood
Headteacher
Five Acres Primary School, Ambrosden

EVENT or NEWS OUTSIDE SCHOOL:

* Labelling Uniforms, please click below to open the leaflet

* Ruskin School of Art Exhibition

Mrs Han would be happy to facilitate a guided tour and discussion about how contemporary art helps us to look at the world in a new way.  It would be a very unique and hopefully inspiring experience for the students but I realise it may be short notice to organise?  Let me know if it might be of interest."
