The Good News – 22nd November

School News, | by Blue Apple Education

Our School Vision links to the Good Samaritan to help and care for each other.

Dear Parents and Carers,

We had another very successful Class Assembly yesterday! This time, Year 6 taught us all about the Second World War with some fabulous singing, very entertaining dancing and a couple of informative radio broadcasts, written by the children themselves. Also, their
paintings of the White Cliffs of Dover were amazing – there are some really talented artists in our school! Although I was out at a meeting yesterday, I was lucky to be invited to one of the rehearsals and I know how much hard work went into putting on a great show.

This week we had a Maths Inspection from the Local Authority and I’m delighted to say we received really positive feedback! In particular, the enthusiasm and engagement of all the children was noted and also their willingness to embrace a challenge. We have a lovely range
of maths equipment which was being used effectively to support pupils and a high level of mathematical vocabulary was demonstrated by everyone who was spoken to.

Year 2 had a Family Learning Session this morning which was extremely well attended. The children wrote some great stories using various resources to prompt ideas. Some people were so busy writing they didn’t even notice me sneaking in!

Mrs Vicary has started some gardening sessions on Monday afternoons and we are hoping that, throughout the year, all pupils will get a turn at coming out of class to play their part in making the school grounds look spectacular! At the moment we are concentrating on sweeping up leaves and keeping it tidy but, in the spring, we will be planting some beautiful flowers and some tasty herbs which can be used by the Kitchen Staff to add more flavour to our dinners. I can’t wait!

Michaela the Meerkat is off to Madrid this weekend with Ewan from Year 5 who is going to watch a big football match. We hope you both enjoy it and we look forward to reading the diary entry afterwards!

Have a great weekend,
Miss Robinson
