29 March 2019 - Portway Press - Newsletter

Friday 29 March 2019

We missed seeing our Year 5 children at school this week.....but we are sure that they didn't miss us, whilst enjoying the many activities on offer at Fairplay House, the outdoor education centre in Essex.  The newsletter has some wonderful pictures.

In other school news this week:

  • Congratulations to our readers, writers and mathletes of the week, whose names appear in the newsletter.
  • Helping our children keep safe online is always a focus at school.  This week, our Year 4 children worked on this topic through the creation of posters.
  • Year 2 very much enjoyed their Great Fire of London workshop, held at school.
  • Congratulations to the Portway Panthers - our very own cheerleading team!  The team came a brilliant 2nd in a recent competition against local schools, out of a field of 12.  Well done for what was clearly an excellent team effort.

As always, the school calendar has all the important dates for your diaries.  Key amongst these are:

  • Wednesday 1st May - year 2 (Key Stage 1) SATS tests start
  • Monday 13th May - year 6 (Key Stage 2) SATS tests start

Thank you in advance for your support in helping the children prepare for these important tests.
