Athletics with Fairton and Chertsey

As most of you know we had our school athletics day with Chertsey and Fairton on Wednesday. The children for Counties Athletics will be selected from this meeting, with Miss Sloan and Mrs Oakley looking at the qualification standards and making decisions based on those standards.  A big thank you to both Miss Sloan and Mrs Oakley who organised such a fantastic Athletics Day.  It literally ran like clock work.  Also, well done to the Netherby children who behaved with such wonderful manners.  I know as a teaching staff we were all very proud of your perfect manners and behaviour.  You did yourselves proud, and us proud too.  The Home & School was super organised feeding the masses of people.  Again, behind the scenes the Home & School was a well-oiled machine cooking, sorting and organising food and drinks.  Also a great big thank you to Fairton and Chertsey for coming to our school to support what truly is a fun day for all three participating schools. Also cheers to the parents who came and supported the day. We really like your presence and appreciate the support you give our school.  You’re welcome here all of the time remember.

Tip For Parents

Give your child every opportunity to read to you daily. Ten minutes of reading five times a week = 50 minutes of reading time a week.

If you did this for a minimum of 35 weeks a year we have your child engaging in text for 29 hours extra every year! That 29 hours helps your child read better because they do more miles, are exposed to many words, and importantly are exposed to many ideas through the text.

It is a win - win for all concerned!
