A word from the Principal... Welcome, I hope you all had an enjoyable half term. The children have come back to school recharged and ready to learn which is great to see. Prior to half term you had the first formal opportunity to meet with your child’s teacher for the first time in our parents’ consultations. The feedback I received was very positive and I hope these meetings gave you an insight into how your child has settled into their new class and how they are progressing with their learning. We signed off last half term with the FLS Monsters Ball Discos. Both the KS1 and KS2 events were incredibly well supported, so thank you for allowing your children to attend and and to those of you who helped during the evening, it is very much appreciated. The FLS run lots of events like this through the year, with all proceeds going towards improving our school. However, their numbers are low, so if you are able to help the FLS in any capacity, please let Gail Terry know or speak to Grace in the office. This week, we held our cake stall to raise money for a memorial flower garden for Mrs Gee. Thank you to all of you who sent in cakes or money or attended the cake stall, it was hugely successful and we raised over £350. Raffle tickets will continue to be on sale until Wednesday. This half term is one of the busiest of the year and I am looking forward to telling you about what has been going on in our next newsletter. Kind regards, Adam Anderson Principal
Broad and balanced... EYFS This week the Rainbow Class have been very excited about Halloween! We had fun making our own magic potions, listening to stories, learning about how other people celebrate Halloween, making and tasting pumpkin soup. Y2 Year 2 have been making their own story books about plastic pollution in our oceans. They planned,published and have illustrated them. They also used the Chromebooks to select their front cover image. This week Year 2 have looked at how Lego is made and the benefits of plastic. They then created an animal using the Lego.
