The summer term is always a busy one, but this year seems to be exceptionally busy! The children have had the most amazing learning experiences this term which will help to shape their exciting futures.

Preparing for life beyond primary school is something we think is really important, which is why we held a Careers Fair for our older children. Our brilliant parents talked about the roles they have taken on in their chosen careers. Carefully planned questions were asked to give the children an insight into what the world of work could hold for them. Everyone was buzzing with excitement about how they can make a difference to others in the future and what they need to do to get there. Thank you to all of the volunteers who were able to help on the day.

‘Listen to Us’ is the title of our whole school topic this term, so we wanted the children to learn how diverse life can be. Our local circus, Cirque Normandie, provided us with the perfect way to showcase how diverse different careers can be. Everyone enjoyed the fantastic workshops held in the big top, learning new skills and seeing first hand why perseverance is key to being successful. Even the teachers learned to juggle and do the hula-hula!

I was blown away by the incredible singing at the locality music concert, performed at the Hawth Theatre. Hours and hours of rehearsal and perseverance in abundance, produced a sound so pure and perfected. Well done to all the children who worked so hard and to the staff for supporting them so well.

We know that people in sports are some of the most dedicated and committed professionals. At WGPS, we definitely have teams of children ready to take on any challenge. Our swimming team came first in the locality swimming gala, with triumphant wins from the girls relay team, the boys 25m individual races and the girls 25m butterfly. Well done for working hard as a team to achieve a fantastic win!

The year 6 cricket team took on other local teams and had a thoroughly enjoyable day. They showed fantastic skills, real sportsmanship and had lots of fun.  Well done team.

If you would like to be part of our staff team and help support the children, then we may have a vacancy for you.  We are currently looking to appoint a Lunchtime Supervisor and a Breakfast Club Supervisor for September.  Hours and working days can be flexible, so please contact the school office if you would like some more information.

Warm regards,
Amanda Harrison, Head Teacher
