Welcome back after half term.
Wider school reopening
We are opening to our Reception children next week and I will be writing to parents on Monday with more information about the phased return.
I would like to say thank you so much for your patience and understanding as we all adjust to the drastic changes we have experienced over the last few months. The situation has been so difficult and meant such uncertainty for parents and children. I am extremely appreciative of your positivity, flexibility and resilience, as this has been so helpful and supportive for the school and the staff team.

Race to Health update
William Patten achieved incredibly well within the London-wide competition and came first in Hackney! Thank you to everyone who took part and we hope you enjoyed completing physical activities as a family.
As a whole William Patten Primary School logged 62,012 physical activity minutes and completed 64 miles of the Race to Health ending up 1st place in the total minutes table and 1st place in the average minutes per family leader board for Hackney Schools.
For the whole of London, the school came 4th in the total minutes leader board and 8th in the average minutes per family leader board. Families can now download their personalised certificate by clicking on the trophy base in the ‘Trophy Cabinet’ section of the website.
A special mention to Imogen in 1C, who with her family entered as part of the Camden Learning Team. She and her family came third! Big congratulations to you all!
Thank you to everyone for participating with such energy and enthusiasm. I am delighted with our result!
Science Week at William Patten will be taking place between the 15th and 19th June. The theme for this year’s Science Week will be ‘Our Diverse Planet’. Obviously, due to current circumstances, this year Science Week will look a little bit different. Each class will have a Science Week Mat on Google Classroom instead of a Creative mat. These will have a mixture of experiments, practical work and written work, which families are welcome to do together. The EYFS Super Achiever certificates and HTA certificates will be Science based and there will be some extra special certificates for outstanding Science exploration!
