Head Teacher's Blog

Week Ending 6th May 2022



Head Teachers’ Awards this week have been awarded to:


Ethan – Violet 2 – For an improved attitude in his approach towards sport. He was very committed and dedicated at the recent football matches and cross-country event. He appreciates the need for girls to share the MUGA and is supporting them in their training for their upcoming football match. He has been a pleasure to be around currently.


Isla and Elsa – Yellow – 2 – For creating carefully thought out, beautiful double page spreads in their sketchbooks all about the artist Tracey English


Grayson – Yellow 2 – For persisting with his maths today until he had that real ‘lightbulb’ moment and flew through column addition carrying the tens.


A great week in school this week. Leaders have been looking at maths lessons across school and we are fully engaged with the learning taking place across the Create Term - lots of music, art and DT happening. I have seen colour mixing with different media to create different effects in year 2 and 5. Year 4 have been fully committed in creating silhouettes to show mood (hard without facial expressions!) and I enjoyed seeing Mr Leyshon and Mr Honey in full swing with their singing and creating harmonies.


Year 1 have enjoyed their trip this week to the Yorkshire Wildlife park. The teachers and parents were extremely complimentary about the children’s behaviour, the way in which they conducted themselves and the bus driver said that they were the best group of children he had ever driven for J They had a great day (first proper trip since the start of the pandemic!) and the weather was very kind!


For year 6, this week, they have been working hard on last minute revision towards their SATs, which take place next week. They are now very ready and we just need to support them in ‘cracking on’ and showing the markers what they are made of. They have worked really hard and been very committed! I wish them all the luck in the world.


SAT results are important, for the children and the school. However, they are only a measure of a small part of what a child has to offer. They will do their best! Well done to all the Year 6 team who have supported the children since September in getting them ready for next week. Good luck, folks!


Have a great weekend everyone!


Warm regards,


Mrs Bates
