Welcome to our 10th remote Newsletter!
We have had a good week in school with just over 60 children with us each day now. Thankyou to all parents and children for sticking to our rules and guidelines- by doing this you are ensuring that everyone in school remains as safe as possible.
We have also been seeing some of our new Reception children when they have been in to meet with Mrs Morgan. We always love to meet our new families and we are sure that they will soon feel very welcome members of the Crestwood Park family.
For our Year 6 class, we have been working on plans to mark the end of their primary school journey. Letters to parents of children in Year 6 will be sent out on Monday, with further details.
End of Year Reports
Teachers have been busy writing children's end of year reports. Although the last two terms have been very different to previous years, we felt it was really important that parents still hear about the many achievements and highlights from September to March and next steps for the new term.
On Friday July 3rd we will give reports to the parents of children who are in school on that day. If your child is not in school on that day, or is not in school at all, you may collect it from the school office from Monday 6th July. Any reports not collected by Wednesday 8th July will be posted.
Following that, if you would like to discuss your child's report, you can contact school and we will arrange a telephone appointment with your child's teacher.
As always, if you have any questions at all, please call school and we will be happy to help.
Keeping our WELLBEING in Good Shape!
A very special 'well done' to Shianna (Year 5) and Cooper (Year 4) for their commitment to The Five Ways to Wellbeing. Every day this week they have focused on a different part of our Wellbeing focus. We have been over-the-moon to have received photographs and descriptions of their activities this week and we are sure that their enthusiam and commitment to keeping their minds and bodies fit and healthy will certainly get us motivated!
This week's Book Review
This week's review was written by Lewis in Year 4. You can read more reviews in the Pupil Pages of our website. Don't forget to send in your reviews to Mrs Cadman when you've read your next book!
This week's Poem suggested by Mrs Cadman
‘Please do not feed the animals…’
by Robert Hull
Please do not feed the ostriches sandwiches
or the polar bears éclairs.
Do not offer the wombats kumquats
or the rattle-snakes fruit-cakes.
Remember that piranhas are not allowed bananas
or partridges sausages.
Never approach a stork with things on a fork
or the bustard with a plate of custard
No leopard likes anything peppered
and meerkats dislike Kit Kats.
Remember that grapes upset apes
and meringues do the same for orang-utans.
Most importantly– do not feed the cheetah
As you will have seen, we are all very keen on poems here at Crestwood Park, so much so in fact that we would like to create a 'Poetry Tree'!
For this to happen, we would like you to send in the name of your favourite poem (and the poet who wrote it too). You can send in your favourites to any of the email addresses you have for teachers in school, or via our email@example.com address.

At Crestwood Park we are always looking for children who are keeping active. At school we have been making the most of the track with all children completing a mile walk every day. In September Mr Barnett will be launching a new initiave - A Blast on the Track! More details to follow!
Well done to Joseph (Year 2) who has shown us that he is keeping very active whislt at home. A certificate and medal are on their way!
Another week has gone by and once again we have been really touched by the thoughtful messages from our families. As we have said before, we always want to make our school the very best it can be, and even in his situation, we are looking for ways to improve. If you have any thoughts then please let us know!
Finally, we wanted to check in with all our families, so we have two questionnaires for you to complete- one for parents and one for children. Please have a go at completing them; they will help us find the best ways of helping you and if you think there is anything we could be doing better, then you can give us a push in the right direction!
Here are the links....
Have a good weekend everyone - enjoy the sunshine (safely!) and take care in the storms we've been promised!
Love and best wishes to you all.
