As we approach the Autumn half-term, the last two weeks have been super busy but we still have so much to look forward to!
Swimming for success
A number of pupils attended the ISA Swimming Gala at Walsall Swimming Baths on October 3rd, accompanied by Mrs Veszpremi and Mrs Grubb.
The squad consisted of Niamh Farrell, Summer Warrilow, Alfonzus Gilmore, Monty Gambrell, Charlie Haynes, Cleeve Poxon, Will Murdock, Lewis Binks, Elsie Oliver, Cody Moore and Jacob Blakemore.
We are very proud of all their performances, competing against some of the top sporting Independent schools in the Midlands.
All of our pupils behaved impeccably and represented Maple Hayes very well.
Sports and art stars
Congratulations to Alice Coats who was awarded Sports Person of the Week for w/c September 27th and Oliver Hill who earned the title for w/c October 4th.
Well done too to Grace McLean-Blake, our Artist of the Week for w/c September 27th and Ben Owen for October 4th.
We would like to encourage all of our winners to keep up the hard work and push our pupils to put themselves in the running for these awards in the future.
At the Zoo
Our Year 5 and Year 6 pupils took a trip to Twycross Zoo on October 10th with Mrs Rhodes and Mrs Lovatt to participate in the workshop ‘Biomes of the World’.
Pupils were given the chance to learn more about the difference between continents, biomes and habitats, studying different animals and identify their adaptations, as well as exploring what characteristics animals share in some of the world’s most wonderful biomes.
Flu vaccinations for all pupils will take place on October 16th.
Please could parents return the associated forms to the School Office by the end of this week if you wish for your child to have this vaccination.
We are looking forward to welcoming the Chelsea Pensioners, who are returning to Maple Hayes after thoroughly enjoying their previous visit last school year.
They will be having lunch with some pupils, as well as a tour of the school on October 21st.
Please note that our holiday dates for 2020-2021 will be published during October half term on the school website.
As always, please contact the office if you have any questions on 01543 264387 or firstname.lastname@example.org
