                                        We held a very successful science week which saw the children involved
                                        with a number of activities which they enjoyed. It culminated in the
                                        children shooting off rockets in the field – it was amazing how high some
                                        of them went!

                                        Thank you to Ms Lashmar for organising a very successful Sports Day. The
                                        children had an enjoyable time competing in a number of events such as egg
                                        and spoon race, three legged race and obstacle. Well done to Oak house
                                        who won the event overall. Thank you also to the parents and carers who
                                        turned up to support their children.

                                        very important that children wear appropriate clothing and footwear when
                                        they come to school. We encourage children to wear caps, use sun cream
                                        and drink plenty of fluid throughout the day.

                                            Building Work

    July 2010

                                            There is building work, due to start in the summer holiday, which
                                            will see both the Foundation stage and K.S1 classrooms enlarged
                                            and to be of a more appropriate size for the number of children.
                                            The work is expected to take about 1 year to complete but I am
                                            sure that you agree with me that it is essential that the children
                                            get the classrooms they deserve. When we know more details of
                                            the building schedule we will let you have them.

                                            We have had a very busy year at Calverton which has seen the
                                            school make good progress. Standards have continued to rise and
                                            we have had successes in sporting and singing events as well as
                                            taking part in activities organised by the borough. I would like to
                                            say a big thank-you to all the staff and parents for their
                                            continued hard work and support this year, as without them or
                                            you Calverton would not achieve as much as they have. Thank you.
