Welcome to week 5 of the summer term 6! Can you believe we only have 3 weeks left together as Zebras...time is flying! The weather is also helping our joyful attitudes!
I am posting this early this week as I shall be climbing three mountains this weekend…I’m slightly nervous but very excited right now! I am aiming to complete the Three Peaks Challenge in 24 hours, raising funds for Demelza House and the school PTFA. If you would like to donate please click on the following link: https://smartgiving.org.uk/event/goudhurst-kilndown-primary-school-2018-three-peaks-challenge?Transaction_page=3 I will be back in school on Monday morning (although in training) and may not be feeling my regular self! I look forward to sharing photos and stories on our return!
I will not be in class on Monday morning (science training) and the lovely Mrs P will be taking the class. I will return after lunch and we will have PE. I will also be absent on Tuesday as I am heading to London for a Shakespeare workshop for next year’s production. I leave the class in the very capable hands of Mr Hardman and Mrs Plewes. Rest assured, I’ll be back in class on Wednesday ready to take on the last couple of weeks of term. Hopefully my legs and feet will be back to normal by then!
Please, another reminder, as the weather is due to get warmer the children are expected to have to correct uniform in school for such occasions. I ask that they all have a hat and sun cream available and a re-usable plastic bottle for water. PE is outdoors for the remainder of term and the children are expected to wear the correct shorts and t-shirts! No more trousers please at it gets very warm very quickly! I had many disappointing conversations with children about not having their PE kit with them because they have had their kit for a sports club the day previously Unfortunately this is not acceptable and PE kits should be in school every day. This week we have PE on Monday and Friday.
On Thursday afternoon, we have the delight of meeting the children’s buddies for the new school year. This is a very exciting and enjoyable time and I look forward to enjoying this experience with them!
As the children are reading more at school and hopefully at home, I ask that they complete an Accelerated Reader test as soon as they have completed. They have done very well recently and I’d love to continue thisIf you have any problems, please do ask the children to sort these with me. Most books should be on there!

Please continue to encourage and support your child with their spellings each week. They are so important for their writing and becoming a super speller means a lot for all children! This week’s spelling test will be on Wednesday.
MA is due in on Thursday as normal! This is the last couple of weeks of this so please have a wonderful last push!
We are slowly approaching the end of year performance of Yee Ha! The children have all been given a copy of the lyrics to the songs they will be performing! Please follow this link below to the school’s You Tube page so your child can rehearse. We have lots of rehearsals this week! http://www.goudhurst-kilndown.kent.sch.uk/class6/how-help-your-children-home
As always, my door is always open at the end of the day if you wish to discuss anything further J
Enjoy your weekend…please think of me and the walking team!
