Head of School Update – 27/11/2020

Dear Parents and Carers

Welcome to this week’s update.

On Thursday, we were so excited to welcome back the children who had been at home self-isolating. Having the school back to full capacity has been wonderful; the children were straight back to learning and enjoying all their lessons. In year 1, they have been designing their movable toys as part of their exciting Toy Story learning journey and loving their Read Write Inc lessons.

All week, throughout the school, I have been incredibly impressed with the pupil’s eagerness to achieve. In assembly on Monday, I shared our theme of achievement and spoke about how we can achieve in lots of different ways. Some children have achieved by improving their writing, some have learnt to read new sounds and some have improved their listening skills. In addition, as you can see from my headline photo, three of our key stage 2 children have achieved mathematical greatest by being crowned our Times Tables Rockstars.

Next Monday, our Christmas tree will be arriving. All the children have designed and made a decoration to hang on the tree; I know the office team are looking forward to all the sparkle and shine that will fill the entrance hall when the tree is adorned with the children’s artistic creations.

Over the next few weeks we have lots of Christmas events, so please make sure you are checking your emails, children’s book bags and remember to take a look at the weekly bulletin for any updates and messages.

Lots of the children have shared that they are putting up their Christmas decorations this weekend, so I hope your weekend is full of shimmer, glitter and sparkle!
