Breamore CE VC Primary School
News and Reminders
20th July 2012
I would like to thank everyone involved in our school for all of the successes of the past twelve months – I can’t believe how quickly the weeks have raced by!
We have had a very busy term and we have been so impressed by the learning and attitude of our children.
In May, our Year Six children took their SATs tests. They worked extremely hard, engaging with the tasks set with commitment and dedication.
On Tuesday, Miss Sellers took the children to Moors Valley and Nandos for their treat. They were delightful company – full of fun and a pleasure to be with. We are very proud of them all; they deserve success and are a credit to their school and their families.
Children in other year groups have been working hard to collect marbles in their jar, given for teamwork, excellent behaviour, kindness and hard work. As a result, we have enjoyed a Pirate Day in Classes One and Two and cookery in Class Three. Well done children!
Oh, What a Knight!
Last Friday evening, we enjoyed our end of year production of ‘What a Knight.’ Children in Classes Five and Six graced the stage for an evening of drama and giggles! Our young actors were truly fantastic and we are incredibly proud of them all.
Thank you to our staff, particularly Mrs Sheppard for her hard work and for making this event possible. Thank you also to parents for help with costumes and props. Please be aware that dvds are now available for purchase.
See You Soon!
We are very sad to be saying goodbye to three members of staff this summer. Mrs Osborne is retiring after twenty years of hard work and dedication at Breamore. She will be greatly missed and we hope she enjoys a relaxing break from work.
Mrs Bailey and Miss Ware are also leaving us for pastures new. We would like to thank them their great commitment to our school and the wonderful kindness they have shown our children. We will miss them and wish them every happiness in the future.
As with anything, the internet has both positive and negative aspects and we approach the holidays, I felt that it might be helpful to outline some top tips for keeping your children safe online this summer:
Keep the computer in a family room, with the screen facing into the room and limit time online to when responsible adults are in the house.
Switch to an Internet Service Provider that has a family-safe surfing policy, for example, www.xalt.co.uk
Encourage your children to tell you about inappropriate ‘pop-up’ advertisements that appear.
Adjust the ‘Content’ setting in your web browser, protecting it with a password. (Open your search engine and, from the Menu bar, follow the instructions to do this. Remember to use a password which would be impossible to guess.)
Talk to your children about how not everything on the web is what it appears and make sure they know they can ask you about anything.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish our Year 6 children the very best of luck as they prepare to move on to their secondary schools. We wish you every happiness and success in the future.
Today is your day to Spread Wing and Soar.
Fly Life on Free Wings, and Sing to its Glory.
