Friday Bulletin – 18th May 2018

18 May 2018

Dear Parents and Carers,

It’s been a very busy week at Kells Lane. Our Year 6 children have worked incredibly hard and sustained the most amazing concentration and resilience during their SATs this week. We couldn’t have asked for more from our children; we are extremely proud of them. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mrs King and Mrs Anderson-Harrison for all their hard work too. I would also like to thank all the parents of children in Year 6 for your support over the years. I hope you all enjoy a well-deserved ‘SAT free’ break this weekend.

As many of you are aware, our playground project started with a bang this week and our ‘Hobbit House’ is coming along nicely. Please see below for an artist’s impression of what it will look like next week. Once again, thank you to all parents, grandparents and community members for contributing to our fundraising events and helping us to raise funds towards this project. Clearly, we have made a very positive start but we are ambitious and have plans for even bigger and better developments in the future. We are determined to make our outdoor learning environment as rich as our indoor.

Good luck to everyone taking part in the Children’s Cancer Run at Newcastle Racecourse this Sunday. I hope the sun is shining!

Have a lovely weekend.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs A Whistler
