Our Current Value is: Self Belief

 

Dear Parents and Carers

 

This time last year we couldn’t find enough shade for the children during playtimes and sports days. This year we are still waiting for summer to arrive.  May the current warmish spell last.

 

Sports Days

At the time of writing we have had two successful sports days. Thank you to everyone who came along to support us.  Well done to all the children who took part and showed great sportsmanship.

 

May 2020 Bank Holiday

You may have read in the press that the May Day Bank Holiday in 2020 has changed from Monday 4th May to Friday 8th May to Celebrate VE Day.  I have attached an updated version of our school term dates for your records.

 

Big Science

Congratulations to our Year 4 Big Science Team who have won the next round of this event and are through to the grand finals on July 4th.

Edward Frampton, Harry How, Ed Tolley and Benjamin Roberts explored the hypothesis: Which ice cube melts the quickest?

Good luck team!

 

Choir 

Next week is an exciting week for Madley Brook Choir:

On the afternoon of Wednesday 26th June they will be performing to the residents of Madley Brook House.

On Thursday 27th June at 6pm they are putting on the summer music concert. During this concert the choir will be performing a fantastic repertoire of songs, other children in the school will be playing instruments and Key Stage 1 children will be performing some songs they have learned in class. The PTA will be selling refreshments and choir will be taking donations to raise money for t-shirts for them to use for performances next year. We would love your support at this event and anyone is welcome to come along.

 

Also, on Saturday 29th June the choir are performing on the Open Mic stage at Lib Fest at 11:30am do pop along if you can.

 

Choir have been working so hard for these three performances and we are sure they will represent our school brilliantly.

 

Cricket News

On the 14th June, we went to a cricket tournament and we came second. We won 4 games and lost 1. At the end, we got a Kwik Cricket T-Shirt and received a certificate. We are excited about going onto the next stage. Fingers crossed we play well again!

Aston then played North Leigh and Aston won. Finally, Madley played Aston and Aston won by 12 runs (245 to 257). We are looking forward to playing our next league match. by Alfie Norridge

 

Tri-Golf

On Tuesday 18th June Years 3 and 4 took part in a Tri-Golf tournament at Wood Green School. It was a very rainy day and the children were soaked by the end but this did not stop them from smiling, the whole way through! All children showed fantastic sportsmanship and were encouraging and supporting each other throughout. Well done to all of those who took part.
