Important Beach Trip Info

It is the beach trip this Friday 30th June and we will be going come rain or shine!! Below is a reminder of key points from the beach trip letters.

Parents or carers coming to the beach:

If you are taking your own child to Broadstairs Beach you are responsible for your child’s safety all day and need to organise their travel/tickets to the beach with you.  For further information such as where to meet, please refer to the beach letter.

Children travelling with the school:

We will be organising their travel to the beach with us. Please ensure your child is in school at 8.40am as we will be leaving school at 8.50am. They will need to wear sandals or crocs (shoes that do not require socks) and bring in:

a labelled backpack

full spare set of labelled clothes

a towel

a bottle of water

their swimming costume/shorts

waterproof jacket

£2 for an ice cream

Finally  please remember you will need to pick your child up at 5.10pm from West Dulwich station not school.  Any questions please let me know.

Thanks and fingers crossed for a sunny day!!








Science Question

Do you know?
Why is each finger a different length? Can you answer this scientific question?  If so write your answer on a piece of paper with your name and class and pop it in the green box by 4AN. You may get mentioned in the radio or newsletter next week! For more information look out for the posters dotted around school. Deadline Thursday 29th June.

Sporting Superstars!

A huge well done to everyone for a fabulous sports day. All four competitions (egg & spoon, 100 metres, vortex and sack race) were given 100% effort and determination by all the children and it was wonderful to watch their enjoyment. A massive shout out to the parents as well as for all their support on the slide lines. If you do have any good photos you may be able to share for the blog that would be brilliant  –

Finally if you are picking up your children from school they will all need to be picked up from RKG’s back door (to the right of the blue reception block doors).

Have a lovely weekend!



Junk Modelling

We always need junk modelling for everyday art provision so keep bringing it in. I will happily take your recycling every week 🙂

Smaller containers are often more suitable as the children can stick them together to create things.

PE kit for sports day…

All PE kits has been sent home today as children will need to come into school wearing their PE clothes on Friday as it is sports day. Please ensure they also bring in a water bottle if they do not already have one in class.

Sports Day is taking place on Friday at the Rosendale Road Playing Field.  A reminder of the timings:

  • The Early Years and KS1 races commence at 10am,
  • KS2 children will arrive at the field for a picnic lunch at 12 noon,
  • KS2 races commence at 1pm.

A reminder that everyone is having a picnic lunch on the field.  All reception children will be provided a packed lunch. We really hope that you are able to join us at the field.

Parents and carers are welcome to take their children home straight from the field however you must sign your child out with me first.

Sports day on Friday!

On Friday it is Sports day. The races start at 10am and all parents, grandparents, family friends are welcome. We will be finished by around 11.30am and then you and your child can have a picnic lunch at the field. All the children will be provided with a packed lunch as usual.

After lunch, you are more than welcome to take your child home. Please make sure that you first sign them out with me. I will have a register and will cross them off and give you a sticker to indicate your child is your responsibility. If you are unable to take your child, they will come back to school to relax and we usually spend the afternoon watching a film.

I hope to see you there on Friday morning. There is a parents race also so come prepared! 🙂

Call for authors & illustrators!!

During the next academic year, we will be working with Elmgreen on creating The Great North Wood Education Trust Literature Festival (think of the Hay Festival)!!

We are looking for Authors, Illustrators, Publishers and Story tellers who would be willing to come into school to run workshops and speak in assemblies.

If you are able to help, or know someone who would like to participate in the festival please contact Sarah Tyler.
