A message from Mrs Carly Ellis
We have had such a busy month! Otter and Hedgehog classes have both produced great class assemblies this month. Otter class shared everything they had learnt about their class animal and even wrote their own song. Well done! Hedgehog class shared all that they had learnt about their trip to Gore Farm. We have trialled a different exit from the class assemblies which seems to be working more positively. From now on, adults will exit through the main entrance doors and walk around the school to the classrooms while the children wait in the hall. The children will then meet you back at the classroom where they will invite you into their class to share their learning with you.
KS2 have all been to Carymoor for their school trip which links to the launch of their curriculum focus for this term. The children thoroughly enjoyed it and I am still being approached while I’m on duty outside by children telling me that I need to reuse, reduce and recycle!
We have had school photos this week. We do hope you are pleased with them and would welcome any ideas you may have for the future.
The Monster Bash was a real success and we will definitely be repeating the event next year! Tremendous effort with the costumes – well done! We are very lucky to have such dedicated staff and FOPS members. I would like to thank them all for giving up their Friday evening to ensure the event ran smoothly. If you have any ideas on how we can improve this event next year then please share them with me or a member of the FOPS team.
After half term we will be in the run up to Christmas! I personally can’t wait! I know I wrote this in the last newsletter but children must come into school with/wearing a coat every day.
Please could I remind you that children and adults should not be riding their bikes or scooters on the school site. We would like to remind parents that the drive into school should not be used for anyone other than staff. We have had a few complaints about vehicles reversing /turning, nearly causing injury to pedestrians.
Have a lovely half term and keep safe on Halloween! https://www.safekids.org/tip/halloween-safety-tips
