Time to celebrate!

More time to celebrate!

It is hard to believe that we are now over half way to half term! The weeks have flown by and the learning the children have been doing has been wonderful to see. The determination that I have seen in the school has really shown the effort and pride that the children have in their learning and school. They are a real credit to Darite and make the school what it is! They are embodying the values of the school and trust in everything they do.

Star assemblies are getting very full now with successes in 99 Club, Spelling Shed and TTRockstars! Thank-you for all the support that you have been giving children at home with these programs. We celebrate their successes on Friday in assembly. The HUGE scores on spelling tests are testament to the hard work of the children. Amazingly, Class 3 are ranked number 32 in the world currently! Fantastic spelling everyone. Remember, if you are having problems logging in at home, please let us know. If the children have an achievement from outside of school (a cub badge or swimming certificate for example) please send it in by Thursday so we can add that to our celebration.

Please keep checking the newsletter and calendar on the website for key dates. Due to the nature of COVID and the weather, events may change. We will always endeavour to give you as much notice as possible for these. Shortly you will be sent details of the Parents Consultations that will be taking place on the week beginning the 11th October.
