Ditcham Term Dates

Term Dates

Term Dates for this academic year and provisional dates for 2020/21 are published here. As the Government has recently announced a change to the May Bank Holiday dates for 2020, we have been forced to make changes to our previously published term dates for the Summer Term 2020. The May Bank Holiday has been moved from Monday 4th May to Friday 8th May 2020 in order to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of VE Day. This means the School has moved the its INSET (Training) day from Friday 1st May to Monday 20th April. This in turn will mean that the Summer Term will start one day later on Tuesday 21st April.

Good morning! Many of us are noticing that birdsong is emerging to fill the space once filled with engine noise. Spring, as the birds seek mates and look to breed is the perfect time to hear them - so some positive synchronicity here. Composer, Lev Parikian, has built an amazing resource to help us learn the difference between the Blackbird’s song and the Robin’s - and many more. It’s a great way to start your day. Happy listening! Thank you to Mr Philips for sharing this website. Listen out for our Tweet @DitchamPark next (!!) https://levparikian.com/index.php/twitter-birdsong-project/ #EasterHoliday #Nature #DitchamConnect #StayHomeSaveLives

Performer. Ditcham has given me the confidence to develop as a performer – singing AC/DC at our Arts Festival was a bit different from what I usually sing in the cathedral choir; I loved it.

I like all the books in Nursery. My favourite book is the one about sharks. When I am big I want to go and see lots of sharks underwater. I also want to be a policeman and drive a police car with a loud siren
