Dear Parents and Carers,
The Summer Term is with us already, and we at Mayflower School are getting ready for all the exciting events that always occur at this time of year.
The school really does look lovely at the moment. All the year groups have displayed some wonderful work, but special mention must be made of Years 3 and 4’s Bewilderwood topic. They really do enter wholeheartedly into their learning, and the Year 3/4 results show that this really pays off in the progress children make.
Speaking of progress, please remember to hear your child read regularly at home. It really does make such a difference. Children should always have their school reading book with them (any problems, speak to their teacher) but reading a newspaper, magazine or a kindle counts as well. Department of Education research suggests that a child who is heard reading regularly at home is 13 times more likely to be on track academically by the end of Primary School. So it really pays off.
Thanks to the PTA and especially Sam Copping for the boat filled with plants at the front of the school. It really adds interest to the school approach. Eventually we will flatten and seed the grass area and put posts and a chain around it.
Don’t forget, if you wish to speak to me about anything, I’m usually outside school in the mornings or you can make an appointment to see me during the day.
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.
