Thank you

Thank you very much for the gift voucher and mug that Miss OBrien and I received today. Thank you also for the chocolates for all of the RKG adults.

I hope to say goodbye to you in person next week but if you are heading away on holiday, I wish you a happy, relaxing summer.



Dress down day tomorrow

Friday 19th July is dress down day so the children can come dressed in their own clothes. This is to raise money for new playground equipment so please bring in a coin.

On Tuesday we will have ‘GAME DAY’ so please bring in a game that can be shared with friends. It is helpful if the children know how to set their own game up and explain it to their friends.

Thanks a lot


Final week notices

This week is our final full week of Reception. Hasn’t time gone by quickly.

This week, we are thinking about our favourite memories of Reception and will bring a piece of work home at the end of this week that we will work on gradually all week.

We are continuing to count up to 20, count in 2s to 10, say 1 more/1 less that any number to 20, read the tricky words and read and write simple sentences. These skills should be practised daily over the summer to ensure your child has fantastic opportunities to continue making progress in Year 1.

We are now collecting school reading books so please put any that you have at home into bookbags. There are some children that haven’t returned books for a long time so please have a good look around at home and return all school books.

We will have PE this week but we will do it in uniform so there is no need to return PE kits.

Finally, you may have read in the newsletter that I will be leaving Rosendale at the end of term. I am relocating back to the midlands where my family live and will teach a Year 2 class in Stratford on Avon. I will leave Rosendale with a heavy heart as I have loved the last seven years here and have been blown away by the support of the Rosendale families. I know that your children will continue to thrive at Rosendale and wish them all the success and happiness in the future.

More notices about the last 2 days will follow.

Many thanks

Sports day

Friday 12th July is SPORTS DAY at Rosendale playing fields. The events for Reception and Nursery start at 10am.

Please bring the children into school at 9am wearing their usual Rosendale coloured t-shirt, shorts or leggings and suitable sports shoes. We will be sending PE kits home before Friday but we prefer it if the children are wearing their coloured Rosendale t-shirt rather than their white PE top.
RCR, RBH and RGJ will race together and RKG will join Nursery to compete.
The events will be finished by 11.30am and parents usually choose to take their children home or sit at the fields to enjoy lunch together. You must see your class teacher before taking your child from the class teacher as the children without parents there will be returning to school with school staff at 11.45 to eat lunch at school.
Parents unable to join us for sports day can collect their child from school anytime in the afternoon or at 3.25pm as usual.
If you have any questions please see me before Friday.
Thanks and see you there!
