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


Charlie-Jak, Lily and Harvey – Indigo 1 – For being very kind, courteous and considerate of others when buying snap bands from the Poppy shop (and there wasn’t enough for everyone!)


Kenny – Indigo 1 – For having the best week since September! He has gone out of his way all week to make sensible choices and work hard.


Haydn and Harry – Indigo 2 – For having the confidence in a class discussion to talk through a maths problem, using the key vocabulary required for reasoning (with examples and mathematical fact).


Welcome back to the second half of the autumn term. It was so lovely to see people return to school so positively, despite a local lockdown looming. It was great to hear that the half term holidays had gone well for most and everyone is staying as safe as physically possible. We are pleased to say that we currently have all bubbles open in school and the cases have dropped since before half term – what great news…and long may it continue!


This half term, we have resumed the ‘Create term’, where children are developing their skills, knowledge and creative techniques through art, design technology, PE and the performing arts. I have seen some fabulous work and skills developing and the displays are starting to showcase some super pieces. We also had a staff meeting this week, where we began to look at the development of the children’s sketchbooks - I was astounded by the quality!


Keep safe, happy and well everyone. Have a good weekend. The Local Authority have written to all parents and carers this week to remind them of the national lockdown restrictions and how to manage COVID cases at this difficult time! We all know that we need to follow these to keep safe.


Warmest regards,


Mrs Bates
