Week in, Week out
A Pre/Primary School publication


Welcome back to another edition of our weekly newsletter, covering all things Pre/Primary across both campuses and our National school. 

Our students have been busy over the past few weeks with creative projects in Origami, 'Outdoor Classroom' and our EYFS students celebrated their annual Sports Day. 

With only one week left before the break for Bayram, we don't have much longer left until the end of the school year. Our students will be enjoying their final school trips before the summer break, including the annual Year 5 trip to Space Camp and the Year 6 trip to Capadoccia, which I'm sure our students are very excited about.

On Friday 21st June we will celebrate Fab Friday, which our PTA are currently organising and finalising the details for. You can find details about this fun-filled day in our 'Week out' section of the newsletter. 

We hope you enjoy the last edition before the school break. 

Happy reading!
WEEK IN
Origami Club

Ms Cosnestt: Year 6 Primary Teacher

The children had a great time in Origami Club this week. They made origami hearts which they decorated to look like different animals. 

I'm sure you'll agree that they look fantastic!
EYFS Sports Day

On Thursday 16th May we held our annual EYFS Sports Day at Zek campus for all of our EYFS students at both campuses. Parents and teachers gathered on the green pitch with our students, who all turned up wearing their house colours for the occasion.

The weather was kind to us and our students had a great time getting involved in lots of different sports activities, followed by a barbecue in the Botanical Gardens. 

Keep scrolling to see our students in action on the day.

Year 6 Cookery

Ms. Cosnett: Head of Mathematics & Year 6 Primary Teacher 

The year 6 children have been making the whole of primary school jealous this week with their culinary talents. They began our fusion food topic by preparing and cooking three different dishes from around the world: spicy falafel and yogurt dip; vegetable fajita with guacamole; and Thai green curry with rice.

Everyone ate well that day!
Outdoor Classroom Day

Miss Karen: National School Class Teacher 
 

In UK and Ireland, the 23rd May marks “Outdoor Classroom Day” where students all over the country will be leaving their desks and classrooms to go outside. 

We wanted to replicate this occasion in National School by taking our students outside to do some carefully planned outdoor activities. 

There are many ways on offer to get out and about with your children during the Bayram holiday.

Here are some suggested ways:

-Go on a foraging walk 

-Do a mini-beast hunt

-Try some outdoor crafts

-Leaf/flower identification

-Build a den

Birthdays

Happy Birthday to all of our students who celebrated their birthdays last week and to those who will celebrate this week. 

Many happy returns to you all!!!

WEEK OUT
School Trips
 

This week our Year 5 & 6 students will be taking school  trips to Cappadocia & Space Camp. Our year 6 students are travelling to Cappadocia today for 5 days and we wish them all a very good week ahead. We hope you have a lovely week away and look forward to hearing about your trip when you return. 

Tomorrow our Year 5 students will travel to Space Camp, which they have been eagerly awaiting all year. I'm sure we'll have lots of photographs and stories to tell upon their return. Have a brilliant week away and enjoy!

Graduation Day

On Thursday 30th May we will celebrate Graduation Day at Zek campus, meaning school will finish at 12:00pm for all of our students at both campuses. School buses will leave shortly after and parents who normally collect their children from school can do so from 12:00pm.
