July saw the end of term & lots of sad goodbyes to our children leaving to start school in September!
Before they left, all the school leavers went on a trip to Curious Kids Town on 10th July. They were picked up from nursery by coach & taken to the role play village. They enjoyed taking on lots of different roles, from hairdressers to fire fighters!
On 16th July we had a wonderful graduation celebration which we held at St Mary’s Church. Parents & other family members were welcomed in to come & see their children collect their certificates & celebrate their time with us at Highgate. The children did some beautiful singing of some special songs that they had been learning throughout the term. Each child was individually presented their graduation certificate & then everyone enjoyed a delicious buffet afterwards. A fantastic time was had by all!
We raised lots of money for Sheffield Children’s Hospital from our raffle in July, which saw lots of happy families winning some great prizes such as tickets to Disney on Ice, family days out & activity vouchers!
On 23rd July Highgate hosted a free Parent 1st Aid Training Session. We had a great response from parents who really enjoyed the session & the opportunity to widen their knowledge & understanding.
We had a very warm staff training session on 25th July during the heatwave! It was based around Understanding schemas, the Leuven scale & the key person buddy system.
We’re now looking forward to August & the new term in September where there will be another range of exciting events to tell you all about!
