End of Term preparations

We are rapidly coming to the end of another year at School and Heathlands is buzzing with excitement and expectation.  We are readily preparing our year 6 pupils for moving on and the arrival of our new EYFS.  We would ask our parents over the next few day to please:-

  • Check lost property for any known/even unknown mislaid items.
  • Ensure payments for all trips and forms are paid/completed for next term.
  • PE kits are handed to you by your child on or before last day of term.
  • Send a carrier bag in with your child on last day of term for all the lovely work completed over the last year to be brought home and shared with all your family.

Many thanks,

Website Reporters - Last meeting - Report by Mrs Lawrence

Today, 8th July, saw the last meeting of Website Reporters Club for this term  Although we did not manage to complete many reports tonight due to an incredibly slow network, we had a lot of fun experimenting with the new Apple Mac computers.  I would just like to say a huge 'thank you' to this term's team for all their great reports.  Also, good luck to the Yr 6 Reporters as they move on to secondary school.

Looking forward to meeting a new team in September.

Leavers' Disco by - Jack 6FS

The Leavers' Disco will be held on the evening of the 22nd July (last day of term).  Unfortunately, choosing a playlist may prove tricky for the DJ as everyone obviously have different tastes in music but I am sure we will all enjoy the atmosphere.  We in year 6 are all looking forward to the disco but maybe not so much that it marks the end of our time at Heathlands.

Transition Day by Francesca 5M

On Friday 4th July all the pupils at Heathlands were told what class they would be in next September.  I am going to be in 6G with Mrs Gibson.  She is really nice and I am looking forward to next year because it is going to be a lot of fun with Mrs Gibson.  I will work as hard as I can so that we get to do more fun things!!

At Heathlands on Friday 4th July starting at 4pm we celebrate our annual Summer Fayre. It’s a real community event, supported and enjoyed by many local friends and villagers. This year we are hoping to repeat the success of last year by having the event on a Friday afternoon again.
We hope you enjoy a fun-filled afternoon packed with crafts, activities, singing, dancing, delicious treats to eat etc, donkey rides, bouncy castles and hopefully lots of sunshine and NO RAIN OR WIND!
