Diary of the week:
A fabulous week in school this week; lots happening and a great sense of excitement about the work being produced, progress being made and opportunities being provided. The buzz of excitement from Year 5 and their writing is hard to miss and I am looking forward to reading their published work ‘Short with a side of scares’. Books will be onsale from school priced at £1, I have already put my order in. Speaking of writing, we have been informed that we have a winner from the ‘writing competition’. I look forward to sharing the exciting news next Friday during Gold Book!
National poetry day was a focus for the assembly on Tuesday and Mrs Clarke enjoyed reading some ‘mischievous’ poems with the children. The children were engaged, excited and motivated to hear the works of poets. Poetry can be a great way to excite the children into a world of reading and can be a great change to the ‘norm’ of fiction stories.
Our caterpillars are busy munching away in the corridors and many classes have been to visit. It is really great to see ‘real life’ experiences right outside the office.
Yesterday, year 1 had a super trip to the castle. It really pleases me that children get the opportunity to go on trips outside of school as it makes has such an impact on their learning. A huge thanks to staff who continue to organise such events and of course to you our parent helpers – trips couldn’t happen without your support.
Today has been red nose day as we busily raise money to support comic relief. I have to admit that I have struggled to keep my nose on! The children looked great in assembly. This afternoon 2/3 of the school enjoy a movie and ice cream to celebrate superb attendance – a lovely treat for them all.
I hope that you have a great weekend and all of the mothers have some well-earned respite on Sunday.
