Our ‘new beginnings’ theme was being championed in one of our Reception classes this week. The children were so excited to show me the egg incubator they had. It is homing some developing chicken eggs, kindly loaned to us by Bradley’s Mummy – thank you! The children are counting down the days until hatching and closely looking at the development taking place inside the eggs with a special light and a magnifying glass. What an exciting opportunity to see new life at first hand. We can’t wait to meet our little, fluffy visitors!
Our first Golden Assembly of the year saw a number of pupils doing exceptionally well. Congratulations to our first oscar winner, Joshua, who has wowed us with his effort and progress recently. Joshua is an excellent reminder that you do ‘reap what you sow’ and that hard work pays off. Our superb golden ticket winners were all chosen for individual achievements and it’s a pleasure to hear each and every reason in our assembly. Well done to you all for being such super stars! Keith’s golden broom award was presented to a very tidy Lovelace Class this week, as we work together to respect our beautiful school environment. Our top Dojo scorer has moved from individuals to a class effort this term and I was delighted to see Turing Class as our champions. As top class, they will receive lots of special treatment in the forthcoming week. This term’s focus is on timetables and number bonds. We were treated to a demo of how to roll your 8x table from Year 3 and we loved seeing the parents at the back of the hall joining in- they are clearly being practised at home too, which is great news. Well done to all our Maths Magicians this week – what fine examples you are! The Log Book opens every Friday at 11am and I absolutely love looking at the pupils’ learning and successes with them. Some of our pupils in Reception, amazed me this week with their independent application of phonics. Well done both Madison and Syvannah- superb!
Many thanks to those parents and carers who came to our Parent Consultations. It is always so beneficial to have the opportunity to talk to you about your child. Individual pupil attainment information was handed out in these meetings. If you were unable to attend, we shall ensure you receive the information prepared for you, via your child’s book bag. If you have any questions once you have read the information, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher to talk it through. I really enjoyed meeting with the parents and carers of Year 6 pupils, as we prepare them for an important time in their primary eduction and start to get them secondary-ready. Thank you for all your support.
