A form will be sent via parentmail to confirm the time and for you to indicate your attendance after half term so please keep the date free.

Sun Safe

Hopefully the sun will stay with us until the end of term, so I thought it would be useful to remind you of our procedures: 

All children should have a sun hat or cap to wear when playing out. Ickleford School caps can be bought from Price & Buckland our school stockist @ £4.00 – baseball cap & £4.50 legionnaire cap. Please ensure all are NAMED clearly.

You may wish to apply sunscreen to your child at the start of the day. However, children must not bring bottles of cream into school for reapplication. There are many brands which offer long-lasting/all-day protection and a liberal application in the morning should see them through the school day.

Children should have a bottle of water with them in school each day which should be named. 

Children should have summer PE kit for outdoor sports every day (not long trousers).

Year 5 Viking Workshop

Year 5 Viking Workshop
Today in Year 5, we enjoyed a wonderful afternoon learning all about Viking invasion and settlement in Anglo-Saxon Britain. We were able to try some traditional Viking foods, such as buttered turnip and honey flapjacks, handle some replica artefacts and watch a re-enactment of combat. Most of all, we enjoyed handling the shields, axes and swords (all blunt, of course)! A huge thank you from all of us to Tom and Ash for giving up their time to share their enthusiasm about this period of history with us.

Year 5 Synagogue Visit

Year 5 Synagogue Visit
Today, the children in Year 5 visited Welwyn Garden Hebrew Congregation. We enjoyed looking at symbols associated with Judaism, exploring the stained-glass windows and finding out their meaning and viewing a real Torah Scroll . The lovely volunteers gave us prayer shawls and hats to try on, as well as teaching us some Hebrew, setting up a Shabbat (Sabbath) meal for us to re-enact and giving us grape juice and Challah bread to taste. As always, the children represented Ickleford Primary School impeccably, showing respect and interest in learning about Judaism.

With the end of the year fast approaching, I’m writing to let you know the dates for upcoming Homework Club sessions.  There will be a session on Monday 26th June, but the session on 3rd July will be cancelled, as the staff have first aid training after school.  Sadly, Monday 10th July will be our last session for this year.  Can I take this opportunity to thank you for allowing your children to attend this club, and to your children for working so hard and having a fabulous attitude.

Many Thanks
