Dear Parents and Carers
Firstly, can I begin by thanking you all for your patience and co-operation as we enter the final stages of the new build project. If you were somebody who had to use a different route in to the building...thanks!
Year 1 had their sharing assembly, this week, and it was packed with all the various activities that occur day in and day out! The sharing assembly included so much about what is new in their curriculum! We heard the children singing in French, carrying out a science experiment, sharing their knowledge about the history of aeroplanes and chanting their times tables...to name just a few highlights. It was great to see some of the children's gymnastic skills! Thanks to all the parents and carers who attended!
As you know, we all enjoyed the celebrations on Friday 8 May to commemorate VE Day (Victory in Europe Day) and you can see a selection of photographs at the bottom of this web page, under 'Highlights'.
On Tuesday 19 May, children from Year 2 are off to the Lincoldnsfields Children's Centre to take part in their 'Children at War' day where they will learn what it was like to be a child, in England, during World War II. On Wednesday 20 May, 54 members of Year 4 (plus staff) will be going for a two day (residential) to Lincoldsfields Children's Centre. They will be taking part in outdoor activities such as orienteering.
The Year 6 children completed their SATs on Thursday 14 May...many of them saying just how much they had enjoyed them!
Finally, do remember we have a Guest Book feature on the website. Click on the blue, Guest Book button on the right hand side of the webpage. Here, you can leave feedback and make comments. The Guest Book is moderated and checked each day by Miss Holden. It would be lovely to receive comments from the Horsenden website users. The children are clearly enjoying this feature... have a look at their positive comments! Remember you can translate the website into a language of your choice by simply clicking the `Select Language' button at the top of the webpage.
We are so pleased with our developing website! We hope you are enjoying it too.
As always, watch this space for news and updates.
