Dear Parents and Carers,
Thank you so much for attending our Parent/Carer events. The children really loved having you there and it was lovely seeing everyone having so much fun.
We celebrated Hispanic week this week and the children learnt some flamenco dancing. They were very impressive and it was lovely to watch.
I really hope you can come and support the summer fair tomorrow. This could be helping on a stall, setting up or clearing up. Every bit of help makes a difference. Thank you to the organisers, helpers and parents and carers who are cooking. It is very impressive how you all come together to create a wonderful day. Thank you to everyone who is supporting as these events raise a lot of money and make a huge difference for the children.
I hope everyone had a Happy Eid this week. We have an Eid event after school on Friday 14th July. There will be delicious food. Please come and support us.
Last Thursday, 22nd June, Hackney Education held its second Reading Ambassadors Summer Celebration. Two students represented our school and we were fortunate to receive a Gold certificate for all of our efforts to raise the profile of reading at Betty Layward. All of the Reading Ambassadors have put a huge effort into running lunchtime book clubs, presenting assemblies and writing book reviews for our school library. We look forward to building on our successes next year.
We had our new Reception parents meeting this week and I would like to welcome all out new parents. You are very lucky to be part of such a wonderful and supportive community.
Please make sure you have signed up for your parent/carer’s meeting on Arbor. Any issues with doing this please let us know as we are all very happy to help.
Please remember we are closed on Wednesday and Friday due to the NEU strike. Thank you for your support with this.
Have a lovely weekend and I look forward to seeing you at the fair tomorrow.
