Spring is on it's way..

What a great start to a new half term, pupils and staff have returned refreshed from the mid term break and the sunshine joined us too in order to make this a positive first week back. 

 

We have plenty of exciting learning planned for this half term. We are taking part in National Science Week later this term, we will be having a launch event on Friday 8th March for our 'On the move' science challenge.  Look out for updates later in the term.

 

Thank you to parents who came along to meet Mrs Kennedy to find out about Key Stage 1 SATs.  We will be working on these throughout May, everything will be as normal for the children in school.  You can support your child by reading together, ensuring they are well rested and have breakfast and a water bottle daily.

 

The Year 5/6 Girls football team came second in their group this week, the girls played well.

 

 Year 5 experienced how it may feel to be evacuated this week as their teachers transformed the hall into a wartime cinema experience to discover how it would have felt to be in an Air Raid and to develop their empathy towards young people who would have been evacuated.

 

Nursery and Reception children are really stepping up to the challenge of the Daily Mile.  They are arriving ready to go and full of energy.  They are also focused on their engineering plans for a national competition called 'The Leaders Award', a competition open to 3-19 year olds.

 

We have sent out some parental guidance about 'Momo' which you may have seen in the news.  Please check your emails for that information.  We are also looking at setting up a page on our website to include guidance and links for parents on a range of online issues to support you in talking to your children.

 

Congratulations to our Golden Leaf winners this week - what a great way to start the half term.
