Junior Newsletter

10 February 2012

Dear Parents,

Another Fluffy Friday, this time with a few centimetres of lovely, fluffy snow to play with. I have just come in from playground duty with the juniors where the children left on site were enjoying safe and happy snowballing and sledging.

We have had groups of infants ‘Out and About’ on the Downs, where they may well have bumped into the extreme campers from the juniors. Other groups outside include feathers and frogs, a winter walk and all you can do in the snow with Henry.

In the warm there is a lego option at both sites. Cooking at the infants is peppermint mice and at the juniors, jammy dodgers and valentine cakes. The valentine theme is also at Pewley Downs, with the opportunity to make valentine cards for your sweetheart!

More unusual activities include writing Dr. Who scripts, making scratch videos and floral art.

It really is a great day of working within the environment and being introduced to new skills. These ways of learning do open up our children to the idea that learning can go way beyond the National Curriculum. We hope that in this way we will encourage them to become life-long learners who lead lives which open up to new possibilities.

I have had to cancel my holiday in France as the weather is freezing with dangerous roads in the Dordogne. So I have a week of unexpected time – I wonder what new possibilities will open up for me?

With best wish for a great half term.
Richard.

Week commencing Monday, 20th February

Phil the Bag (Please keep all your old clothes and shoes as we will be collecting them again; bags will be sent home with your child). Bags will be collected the first week back after half term. Please remember you can use ordinary bin bags too.
 

Lunch Cheques

When paying for school lunches by cheque, would parents please send in 1 cheque even if they are paying for more than 1 child? As before, these will not be processed unless you have your child’s name and class on the back of the cheque. Thank you.
