Dear Parents / Carers
This week has been another busy one! Thank you to everyone who came to our International Curriculum afternoon and the Cake Sale afterwards for Child of Hope School – we raised £122.13. We have enjoyed our cooking around the world with Key Stage 2 children cooking ‘International’ food at Windmill City Farm in their new outdoor kitchen and EYFS / KS1 have cooked in school. Today Year 5 are walking the ‘Shaun the Sheep’ trail in Bristol and no doubt next week Year 4 will want to beat their number when they go out on the Shaun trail! It was an immense pleasure to read every child’s report and just be amazed at all they have achieved this year. It has been a challenge for the children and teachers to adapt to the new, harder curriculum but they have all done magnificently!

School reading books & library books
Please could everyone have a good look around at home and return all books belonging to school by Weds 15th July. Thank you
Thank you to everyone who supported the recent book fair event from Travelling Books. Commission from books sold has enabled the school to buy nearly £200 worth of new books. Thank you for your support.
Just pop into your local library to pick up your free Record Breakers starter pack and special stickers. Children read six books over the summer to earn a fantastic Record Breakers medal and certificate. Competitions, challenges, author interviews, news and a book sorter which recommends what children might like to read next can be found on the summer reading challenge website throughout the year.
