November has been bursting at the seams with so many wonderful activities and learning experiences for our children.
This term seems to have flown by! It has been wonderful to see all our new Reception children settle into our school routines so quickly. The rest of the school have embraced their new year groups and the increased work expectations brilliantly – well done children.
Welcome back to the first newsletter of 2019.
Our children have had a wonderful start to the new school year and we are really proud at how quickly they have settled into their new classes.
What a wonderful week of sports our children have had and the weather has been just perfect! The dedication and perseverance from all our pupils has been truly amazing and it has been wonderful to see them all so united in their houses, supporting each other to succeed. Thank you to everyone who came along to support our children.
A massive thank you to our staff for their organisation of different events, and a special mention goes to Mr. Williams, Miss Bowman, Mr. Herbert and Mrs. Taylor.
It has been another eventful term bursting at the seams with learning inside the classroom and out!
Our Musicians performed brilliantly in our recent Spring Concert. We are truly proud of their successes- well done!
I hope you all had a wonderful half term and have managed to make the most of the lovely weather of late.
World Book Day
Our term is off to a great start with lots of excitement in the build up to World Book Day (WBD), which takes place next Thursday. The children will receive their WBD vouchers which they will be able to exchange for the amazing books on offer this year. The following week will be our ‘Take one Book week’. Each class uses a book to inspire writing, drama, art and, of course, reading.
Welcome back to the new term. It’s been a busy couple of weeks and our children have made an excellent return to their learning and new displays with their work are already lining the walls.
As the song goes, ‘It’s the most wonderful time of the year’ and it really has been in school recently. Our Reception children did a super Nativity and I know that all of you who came to watch loved it as much as we did. Our Y1 ‘Carols around the Christmas Tree’ was so well supported by family members and our children really enjoyed performing to you all. Our final infant Christmas event was our Y2 ‘Shepherd’s Delight’. It was an exceptional performance by all our Y2 children, from the number of songs they had to learn to their clear speaking and all round feel good factor! Well done children.
Our school has seen lots of visitors over the last few weeks: prospective parents and pupils, governors, local authority personel and ex-pupils. Each group has commented on our children saying how polite and well mannered they are as well as their ability to explain what they are learning and what a suportive and engaging atmosphere we have in the classrooms. When you see this day in day out, you treat it as the norm. It is lovely to be reminded how very special our school is. I am very proud of our children.
As our first half term draws to a close, I am amazed at how much has been squeezed in. All the staff are delighted with how well our pupils have settled into their new year groups (especially our new Reception pupils, who are very much at home now) and how they have immersed themselves into their learning with enthusiasm.
