Weekly Newsletter

Newsletter Friday 14th June

Dear Parents/Carers,

If it doesn’t rain, it pours! It has done all week. We have attempted to get the children outside to play as much as possible; however some days, it just didn’t happen. We are all hoping for sun next week so that our annual sports day events can take place. If the weather doesn’t perk up and we have to cancel an event, we will try and let you know in good time via parent mail.

Despite the grey clouds, we have soldiered on and are busily preparing for the “Take One Picture” exhibition next Thursday 20th June. This exhibition will take place in the hall and give you the opportunity to see the amazing art work the children have been engaged in over the last few weeks.

Our art work has been inspired by “Two boys and a girl making music” by Jan Miense Molenaer.

Thank you to those parents who attended the coffee morning yesterday. It was such a lovely, supportive meeting and we hope you got some useful tips. We will be doing more - watch this space. Please let us know if there are any topics you would like covered and we will add them to the agenda.

This half term, we have welcomed back two of our lovely teachers from maternity leave: Mrs Cooke and Mrs Lowe. It has been wonderful to see their smiling faces back at Knebworth and hear all about baby Robyn and baby Erica. Please do say hello when you see them.

This week, our year 1 classes have been really grown up whilst doing their phonics screening checks AKA “phonics quizzes”. They have risen to the challenge and have really impressed us with their positive attitude. Well done children and teachers. Thank you parents for continuing to support your child’s phonics learning.

Year 6 have really enjoyed learning about road safety through the council’s “Distractions” programme. They explored planning their first independent journey to secondary school and how to keep safe at these times. For more information on road safety see:

Can I take this opportunity to send a big thank you to FOKS. They do a lot for our school and are obviously voluntary helpers. They have had a really busy week sorting Father’s Day gifts and preparing for the disco. We hope you all have a lovely rest this weekend after all your hard work.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone,
Natasha Laskey and the Senior leadership team.
