Friday 8th July 2022

It has been a fascinating week here, with children delving into the history of our school and showing real curiosity about the past. Each year group studied a different time period from the last 125 years, to mark the anniversary year of our school opening. From the Victorian era, through the wars, the swinging sixties, via the eighties and right up to modern day England, they used artefacts and questioned visitors to find out as much as possible. At the time of writing, we are setting up our School Museum, and hope there will be lots of visitors to come and share what we have discovered. Each class has also created its own time capsule, to leave for future generations. We hope this school will be here for another 125 years, at least!

Parent and Carer Survey

Please take a few moments to fill in our end-of-year survey, if you have not done so already. Click here: https://forms.gle/da7Tu4EqE1qP8QZq5

So far we have received 71 responses; it would be great for the views of every family to be represented in the results. The survey will be open for another week. Thank you.

Staff News

Mrs Johnson is off on an adventure and will be taking a one-year sabbatical from working at Victoria Park Primary School. During next year, Mrs Rackham will be staying on to cover classes in the afternoons, in Mrs Johnson's place.

Book of the Week

As we are approaching the end of the school year, we are entering new worlds, new classrooms and meeting new faces. Things may feel a little bit strange in the beginning. This week’s recommendation is ‘Door’, where a child in a grey unfriendly world finds a key and follows a winged creature to a door that leads him into a place where worlds meet, and colour is abundant. The symbols indicating words that appear in speech balloons do not indicate any known language and at first the child is alarmed at not being able to understand or communicate. However, the friendliness of the characters he meets as they include him in their activities overcomes his anxieties. 

Sports days - next week!

The weather forecast for our sports days next week is looking very sunny. Children will need to wear sun hats, sun cream and bring plenty of water in a bottle. In the event that a weather warning for sun is issued, we will reconsider our risk assessment for the event - but hopefully it will simply be a lovely sunny day!

Summer Sing!

We hope you can join us next week on Friday at 2pm to hear the children singing a range of songs from their music lessons this year. We will open the gates on Atlas Road (normally the exit gate) so you can join us on playground 2. There will be a small amount of seating, but mostly standing room for the audience.

Trigolf

On Tuesday,  eleven enthusiastic golfers, from Year 2 and 3, took part in a tri-golf session at Bristol & Clifton Golf Club. Encouraged and supported by two professional golf coaches, the children tried a variety of target, chipping and putting games. Each child was awarded with a medal for showing determination and improving their skills. Thank you to Ashton Park Sports Partnership for organising this event and a huge thank you to the golf club for hosting. 

After School Clubs

All after school clubs have now finished for term 6, so children should be collected at 3:15pm for the next two weeks.

Charity Bake Sale - A delicious success!

Nyah, Elodie, Sophia and Zoe would like to thank everyone who came and bought their cakes last Saturday, and hope you enjoyed them! They managed to raise £128.30 for Help Bristol's Homeless. This charity holds regular events and meetings to help raise awareness of the homelessness situation in Bristol. They offer support to tackle issues such as rent arrears, benefit issues and social isolation. Help Bristol's Homeless believe that having a home is not an entitlement but a right, and that everybody should have the opportunity to live in a place they call their own.
