   Headteacher's Welcome 

How exciting has this week been?!?! We are all loving the new 'Beat the Street competition'. There has been a buzz around school, children all working together for our Nether Green Infant School Team and getting fitter and healthier every time with every beat! Lots of teachers are enjoying it too!!! Thanks to those parents who have also registered and are clocking up the points for our team.  I am keeping my eye on the leader board and so proud to say that we already have 218 players for our team and have already gained over 15,000 points. If you have not signed up yet there's still time...the sooner you join the team...the sooner you can start winning points for our school team! Fantastic effort so far! Please send in your 'Beat the Street' selfies for our gallery next week.

Year 2 Celebrations

Until now we have held off planning anything for the Y2 children as we were unsure what the state of play would be in terms of Covid restrictions. Since the latest government announcement on Monday we have received further guidance from Sheffield Public Health and the DFE and are working on some plans. We will need to ensure that all plans fit in with the control measures in place but wanted to let you know that some plans are formulating

Much of this is weather dependent but we are hoping that we will manage to do a short Leaver's Assembly, performed outside to parents, a treat day in school and a walk with picnic. 

There will be two performances of the Leavers' Assembly so that we can ensure social distancing of the audience.  Tickets will be limited to 2 per family. The dates of the Leavers' assembly will be: -

Wednesday 14th July (am) and Thursday 15th July (pm). We need to create a detailed risk assessment which will need to be approved by public health but wanted to let you know so you can 'save the date'. We are crossing everything that this will go ahead... 

Please bear with us whilst we work carefully through the plans. More details will follow.

  Milk Letter

The deadline for ordering milk for September is 1st July - please make sure all order forms are back by this time - it is very time consuming to keep changing the milk order with the dairy so please stick to this deadline. Thank you!

Morning Drop off for Reception Children

With just over 4 weeks of the summer term left we thought now would be a good time to start to encourage the Reception children to say goodbye to their grown ups at the main gate in the mornings.  Getting into this habit now whilst they are in a class where they feel confident, happy and secure will no doubt help them when it becomes necessary in September. Please could we ask that parents have a conversation before children come through the gate about what they are having for dinner each day.

Woodland Learning

The children in Y1 and Y2 have been really enthused about their recent learning about woodland wildlife. They have been asking lots of questions and finding out some really interesting facts.

Some of the Lemurs children spotted a gap in the fence that they thought was from some kind of woodland creature ...they asked Mr Johnson to set the camera up so they could find out what animal it was and see it in action...have a look at some of our latest night time camera footage...
