Merchant of Venice 22.03.24

Dear Families

What a wonderful busy week once again!


This week’s Monday assembly celebrated many children from across the school. We presented certificates for:

  • Numbots and TT Rockstars to over 50 children! Well done!
  • Tri-Cup participants in Years 3 & 4 (well done Oliver, Riley, Jansen, Henry, Aron, Lily, Millie, Ela-Mai, Daisy, Luisa, Alfie)
  • All the children who completed a poem for the Once Upon a Dream - Dream Wonders, Young Writers poetry competition. There are 89 children so I won’t name them all! Some of the children are having their poem published in a book.

Our School Parliament also launched their suggestion box as they are wanting to find out ways in which the children feel our school could be improved (maybe this is something you could talk about with your child and encourage them to pop their suggestion into the box).

We then talked about our school value of: Work Hard and what this means to us. Well done to all of our children who are continuing to always try their best and work very hard, each and every day.

Year 5 RSC Merchant of Venice Performance

On Monday, Mrs Robinson’s class performed at the Royal Theatre in Northampton as part of our work with our Trust, Silhouette Theatre and the Royal Shakespeare Company. Their stunning performance was utterly breathtaking, and it was so wonderful to see children shine on the stage. We are all so very proud of each and every one of our budding thespians! There has been a lot of work go into making this production possible so well done to all of the staff and children involved. Incredible is an understatement!

Year 4 Spring Assembly

On Friday, the week ended with such a special assembly as Year 4 treated us to a Spring Assembly which really got us in the mood for Easter. Once again, the standard was so high and I loved the songs Blackbird and I can see clearly now. Well done everyone! Spring has truly sprung!

Earth Day – 22nd April – get collecting your recyclables.

We are really excited about Earth day which is coming up on 22nd April. It is being led by our DT leader, Miss Davison, and links brilliantly with our Education Team: Our World. During the day, the children will be learning all about the theme: ‘Planet vs. Plastic,’ and as part of the day the children will be making various things. PLEASE see your child’s class teacher and check their Dojo for recyclable materials that will be needed. I look forward to sharing with you our fabulous outcomes.


Here at East Hunsbury Primary School, we take bullying very seriously. Every child has the right to feel safe and valued at all times and bullying will not be tolerated. We teach our children the STOP method for identifying bulling; when an issue occurs Several Times On Purpose, they need to Start Telling Other People. Children are encouraged to talk to their year group adults, a member of the pastoral team or Ms Pennington if they feel either themselves or a friend has been a victim of bullying.

What are we doing to support our work on anti-bullying?

  • We hold our Speak Out Stay Safe NSPCC assemblies
  • We take part in anti-bullying week to raise awareness
  • Our PSCO has visited Upper Key Stage 2 to talk about being safe at the park and when online. This included being kind to others always - in person and online
  • Our recent work with the police on the Blue Butterfly project with Years 3 and 4
  • Our brilliant PSHE curriculum
  • Our school value of kindness is always being taught and promoted
  • Regular Governor monitoring and safeguarding visits

A few weeks ago, we sent this advice sheet via Class Dojo. If you didn’t see it, a copy is included later in this newsletter. The advice sheet has some really helpful guidance. Also, please refer to our behaviour policy and anti-bullying policy.

As always, if you ever have a concern about bullying or unkind behaviours please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher or phase leader. We try to follow up every concern thoroughly and in a timely manner.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone! Don’t forget it is our Easter Café tomorrow from 10am - 12pm! See you there for a choc-tastic, egg-hunting time.

Ms Pennington
