Dear Parents and Carers
We have had another great week.
Year 3 Jade class performed a great assembly on the Ancient Egyptians and then performed a “Granny rap” as the finale. It was very enjoyable.
When walking around the classrooms I am always impressed by the children’s enthusiasm about learning. They like to talk about what they are learning and often do so without being asked. We are currently introducing two class ambassadors in each class, who will explain to visitors what is happening in their classroom. It is important children take ownership of their learning and it’s a pleasure seeing them proud of what they do.
Thank you for completing our club survey. The responses have been helpful and we want to make sure the system is as effective as possible and works for you.
Well done to our Girl’s football team. I was really impressed we came second. Thank you to them for their enthusiasm and hard work.
We will be having a non- school uniform day next Friday (21st October). This will be to raise money for Hurricane relief efforts in Haiti. The money will be going to the charity below.
Midwives For Haiti has been working in Haiti to improve and strengthen the maternal health care system for 10 years. Midwives are trained (who then go on to work throughout the country) and deliver several projects to increase access to skilled care for the most vulnerable women – the rural poor. There is a voluntary contribution of £1 for the charity. Thank you for your support. All donations raised will go directly to support mum, babies, and midwives in Haiti.
Just a reminder about packed lunches. We ask that the children do not bring crisps, chocolate, sweets and confectionery, ‘squash’ or added sugar and/or sweetened drinks and fizzy drinks. I am thoroughly enjoying eating with the children every day. It’s really helping me get to know them.
Have a wonderful weekend.
