PLEASE COME ALONG AND SUPPORT
Dear Parents and Carers,
I’ve just returned to the office after organising Pancake Races for the children, which was great fun for me and, I hope, for the children as well. These special occasions – of which there are many at Mayflower – are the sort of thing our children remember when they look back on their schooldays, and we will never be too busy with our studies to have a bit of fun.
The Reading Rockets are displayed in the hall and look great – thanks to all who gave their time during half term to display them. It is so important to hear your child read every day if possible. The children who regularly read at home really do make quicker progress in reading and writing.
Everyone has been sent a text requesting volunteers to become Parent Governors. This is quite a time-consuming task, but if you would like to discuss it my office door is always open.
Key Stage 2 children can now buy flapjack or shortbread for 20p at breaktime on Wednesdays. Once we have established routines for helpers etc we will extend this to Key Stage 1. One of our more gifted Mathematicians informs me that we sold 148 items last week, so they obviously enjoy Mrs Chopping’s cooking!
As always, please do pop in and see me if you have any concerns. You can either see me most mornings outside school, or come into the office and see if I’m free.
Mr Coppin - Finalist for Essex Primary School
Headteacher of the Year.
We are all extremely proud of Mr Coppin’s fantastic achievement at the Essex Teaching Awards last month. He was named as a finalist for the Essex Primary Headteacher of the Year Award. Mr Coppin narrowly missed out on claiming the accolade.
The Essex Teaching Awards were open for nominations during October and November last year and over 100 nominations were received from headteachers, governing bodies and students.
Essex County Council’s cabinet member for education and lifelong learning, Ray Gooding, said: “The quality of applications we received were extremely high and I know the judging panel had a tough job choosing the winners.”
Mr Coppin was nominated by Graham Lancaster, the Lead Strategic Commissioner for PrimaryEducation.
We are all exceedingly proud of Mr Coppin’s fantastic achievement. If you pop into his office make sure he shows you his certificate and plaque!

assembly presented by Miss Turner's class, and visited years 5 and 6 for their maths lessons.
MAYFLOWER GARDENERS - WE NEED YOU!
We are about to take delivery of a small boat, which we plan to fill with compost to make a raised planting area for our pupils. We are appealing for donations of rubble, bags of compost and any suitable plants for this new growing opportunity.
If you would like to donate any of the above items we would be extremely grateful.
Many hands make light work…we mayalso need some keen gardeners to help our pupils with this project. If you, or someone you know, is interested in helping please contact Mrs Sampson via the School Office. Thank you.
