Satips Art Exhibition

Well done to the eight St. Helen's College children whose artwork was chosen to become part of the Satips Art Exhibition this year. Their pieces were diverse and interesting and really do showcase the wonderful work going on in the art studio here at school. You can see their work, and the work of children from other schools, here.

Phonics Evenings

Thank you to those Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 parents who attended our Phonics training evenings for parents last week and this week. We hope that you found them useful in showing you how to support your children's learning. 

Upcoming Events

We are all very much looking forward to some exciting events next week. On Tuesday, Year 4 will enjoy an Ancient Greek Day. Wednesday is our annual STEAM Day for all children throughout the school. Years 2 to 6 will enjoy an online event with author Dara McAnulty on Thursday and our Upper School Harvest Festival will take place on Friday morning.

Separate details about the author event, including details of how to pre-order Dara McAnulty's excellent book at a reduced price, have been emailed directly to parents of children in Years 2 to 6. The link to purchase the book is here.

We also have a virtual Early Years Open Morning on Friday 1st October at 10.00 a.m. If you know anyone with a child under the age of 4 who might be interested in attending, please do direct them to register via the school website here.

We are also looking forward to hearing the children play their instruments and/or sing for us next Friday afternoon (1st October) at the first Month End Music Recital of the academic year. We hope many parents will be able to join us for this.

Parents' Association Committee Meeting

There will be a PA Committee meeting in the Evans Hall at 6.30 p.m. on Thursday 30th September. All parents are welcome to attend.
