Head Teacher's Blog

Week Ending 6th September 2019


This week, the following children have received a Head Teacher’s Award:


Lucas – Green 2 – for producing his own version of an ‘I can…’ poem. He thought long and hard about his poem and came up with his own super work.


I cannot believe that we are already at the end of the first week back into the autumn term. Once again, the children really have excelled this week and behaviour has been excellent. All of the children have settled well into their new classroom routines and are getting used to the new year group expectations and way of working. It has been so lovely getting to meet so many of the new faces and the atmosphere around school has been fantastic.


Over the course of the week, I have been into all classes and teaching and learning is well underway! The children are happy, cheerful, inquisitive and working hard.
