24 February 2017

Dear Parents,

As Book Week comes to an end, it’s great to reflect on all the positives that have come from a week that’s a bit different to usual. In both schools, the children have had an amazing series of activities with every day being full of inspiring learning opportunities. The over-arching theme of myths and legends has given the teaching staff a superb backdrop for really imaginative planning. I know that every day has been so exciting. As well as the subject matter, the children have learnt how to cooperate with new friends from outside of their usual peer group, as well as get used to a whole range of different teachers. Seeing our youngest reception children being expertly guided by our Year 1s and 2s, and Year 5 & 6 guiding and encouraging Year 3 & 4 was just brilliant!

As well as all the wider skills that the children have learnt, from finding their way around different classrooms, to managing an unusual timetable, or even having lunch with their house rather than their classmates – we have also focused on being super polite! This has been inspired by this week’s assembly theme of “Love is…not rude”. I have been overwhelmed by the way the children have risen to our encouragement. They are all wishing me a good morning, opening the door for adults, enthusiastically tidying up and really showing respect for each other, the staff and also the school property. I hope you’ve also noticed a difference at home too!

Next week we return to the normal timetable, but also we begin our parent consultations, first at the juniors, and then in the following week at the infants. If you haven’t yet returned a slip requesting an appointment, please do get in touch with your child’s class teacher. These meetings really are so important and ensure that we can communicate with you really clearly, both outlining your child’s progress and next steps, as well as identifying ways that you can help support learning at home. The meetings are only for 10 minutes, so if you feel you need a longer appointment at another time, do say.

With best wishes
Clare

Cake Sales – are back! 


Our ever-popular Cake Sales are now in full swing and this is where yummy goodies can be purchased in the front playground at Friday at 3pm pick up. Each class has been given a date - see list below - where parents are asked to donate NUT FREE cakes or cookies (homemade or bought) to sell. Please check the ingredients list on the back of any packets to ensure products are truly NUT FREE as we do have a few children in school that depend on this. Goodies can be left at the front desk at morning drop off and a small team of volunteers are needed to set up and run the stall in the afternoon. Together these sales raise significant funds and help buy School invaluable extra resources - please support them!
