We hope you have had an enjoyable half term despite the weather! We look forward to seeing the children safely back at school on Monday 24th February.
We have received an assembly from the NSPCC, as well as additional workshops for Years 5 and 6, teaching children to 'Speak out. Stay safe'. Children were given the phone number 0800 1111 and reminded to call this number should they have any worries or concerns. Parents also took part in a workshop about Online Safety. Thank you to parents who were able to attend, as well as the NSPCC for their support.
Year 6 enjoyed a morning with Squirrel Learning where they were taught the skills required to effectively use Minecraft Education. They learnt controls and features of the programme in order to design and make a rollercoaster. We can't wait to see what they design and produce!
Reception have enjoyed celebrating Chinese New Year this week!
We have learned all about living in China by:
• Eating noodles with chopsticks and Chinese ‘Show and Tell’.
• Learning Chinese greetings and making lucky red envelopes.
• Designing Chinese lanterns on Purple Mash and making our own paper lanterns.
We ended our week with an amazing Chinese New Year Dragon Dance celebration!
Children in Year 4 have got off to a great start on their inspiration day. They all chose a musical icon to research and present to the class.
Year 6 visited Moreton and enjoyed a broad range of experiences to prepare them for their secondary school transition. They were lucky enough to be part of an energetic PE lesson involving basketball skills, perfected their accents in Spanish, became composers using Garage Band in music and finally decorated their own bookmark in textiles. The children were also treated to a session with Riley the Reading Therapy dog! Four children were chosen to receive a badge for respect and four were chosen for challenging themselves! Super behaviour from all - well done year 6!
Year 6 enjoyed their first session with Headstart where they were taught how to be resilient towards real life scenarios. The children identified qualities needed to be resilient in life. We look forward to what we will learn in our next session!
All staff hope you had a Merry Christmas and wish you a very Happy New Year. We look forward to seeing the children safely back in school on Tuesday 7th January 2020!
Well done to our point winners!
We are also very proud of our 'Pupil of the Term' Winners!
