Dear Parents and Carers,
We hope you all had a good half term. We have had a great first week back. Storm Doris did not stop us having a good week!
We watched some amazing instrumental performances this week on Wednesday at our instrumental concert. We are fortunate to have a lot of children who enjoy playing instruments and were happy to perform in front of others. They did very well and should be very proud of themselves.
It is World Book Day next week. We have an exciting week ahead with authors visiting and a storyteller on Thursday. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone dressed up on Thursday.
Thank you for supporting the project homework. It’s always a pleasure to see the children’s work and hear them talk about it.
We received a letter from Nick Gibb MP this week congratulating us on our results and progress. The letter is attached with this newsletter. A big well done to all the children and to all the staff who worked very hard to make this happen.
We had the BBC in school this week filming mindfulness and how it benefits the children at school. They filmed Peach class in a mindfulness session and then interviewed some children about it. I was so impressed with how well the children did and how they chatted about what mindfulness is and how it benefits them. Well done Peach class. If you would like to watch it we have been told it is on BBC London news tonight at 6:30pm.
We have a new menu from Monday. This is attached with the newsletter.
From Monday the children in KS2 will be lining up in the playground and taken to their classroom by an adult from their class. This enables children to be greeted as they arrive to school and children can walk into class together ready to learn. We have practiced this today. KS1 and reception will continue to go to their classroom doors as before. Thank you for your support with this.
Have a lovely weekend.
