We've had some exciting lessons taking place in school and we hope you enjoyed being part of those lessons during our Open Morning on Tuesday. It was lovely to see parents, carers and grandparents measuring angles, designing spacecraft to keep an egg astronaut safe and joining in with Mathematic Athletics. Lots of you learned about Jewish festivals from our visitor, Jo Elijah and I'm told that all the sweets in the fractions lesson were eaten at the right time! I was even persuaded, by your children and grandchildren, to send home some golden Head Teacher's Award stickers for particularly successful parents and grandparents. Congratulations to those of you who received them!
We know that for some of you, Open Mornings can be difficult to attend and so we're working hard to plan events at different times of the day. Before the end of the school year, we'll be holding an Open Afternoon, when you can visit to see what your children get up to after lunch! Dates will follow soon - check the newsletter, this website, Twitter and Facebook for details.
As you know, we've been working hard on the improvements you suggested on the last Parent Voice survey. Each week, on the newsletter, we're updating you as to what we're doing to further improve the school experience for you and your children. At our staff meeting this week, the staff were working hard to plan a range of exciting learning opportunities for upcoming themes. We'll let you know about these in plenty of time for you to prepare for them. We're starting next week, by celebrating British Science Week, with lots of practical science activities in a fun-filled week. Ask your child to tell you all about it.
The teachers are working hard, planning trips out of school for all the children. Again, we'll give you plenty of notice about when these will take place.
We've also been thinking about fun activities outside of lessons, that you and your children can enjoy. We're thrilled to be able to share with you the events that will be coming soon, before the end of this academic year:
. Family Picnic to celebrate National Picnic Week
. Book Fair
. Family Assemblies
. All-inclusive Sports Day; with lots of activities for everyone
. Children's disco - date and details to follow soon
We're all so excited by the events that we're planning, that we've even started planning WOW events, trips, experiences and family events for the next school year (2017 - 2018). These include:
. Family Pantomime Outing
. School Discos
. Bedtime Stories event for EYFS and KS1 children
. After Dark Stories event for KS2 children
... and many, many more.
Finally, because we know that life is really busy sometimes, we will be including Family Competitions on our newsletters, that you can work on together, as a family, at a time that suits you. These will be fun activities for the whole family to complete together and there will be a prize for the winning family each time. Our first Family Competition launches on this week's newsletter, with a Book Character Quiz. Have fun completing this together over the next couple of weeks.
We know that you can't always be here with us, so remember, our Twitter and Facebook feeds are a fabulous way to stay in touch with what we're doing throughout the day.
