Bringing out the Best

Welcome Back

Welcome back, I hope you had a fantastic Easter break. It was great to see the children on their first day back. We have a really busy and exciting term ahead of us.

Already the children have taken part in some exciting activities to launch their new topics. Year 1 have had an alien spacehip crash into their classroom, whilst year 2 and year 5 have been on a mini beast hunt together, enjoying our wildlife area. Please ask your children what they are learning about in class this term. Please follow us on our twitter page @Highlees where you will see lots more exciting things that are happening in school.

As you know attendance is so important, children need to be in school every day on time to ensure they make the best progress they can.  Well done to all the children who received their 100% attendance certificate during Monday’s assembly. We have some very excited children at Highlees; every child who achieved 100% attendance has been invited to my tea party on Friday afternoon. Watch out for pictures!!    


Over the next two weeks the year 6 children will be taking part in after school boosters, ready for their SATS. I am so very proud of the year 6 children; they are working so hard to get the best possible results they can.  Thank you for your continued support.
