Week Ending 28th September 2018


What a great week in school; VERY busy, VERY productive, VERY helpful and VERY exciting.


I was delighted to hear that the harvest assembly went exceptionally well on Monday. Thank you so much for all the food donations and thank you to Miss Marvin for organising. On Monday, she will be visiting the local food bank (along with some year 6 helpers) and delivering the food that you all so kindly brought into school. A true example of Greasley Beauvale Primary School serving the community.


On Thursday, the new year two classes went off into Eastwood to begin to understand the history of the local area. They visited the DH Lawrence Heritage Centre and began to learn about DH Lawrence and the legacy he left behind. The children also realised how life is different today, compared to life during times gone by.


They really did develop their

‘Wonder and Curiosity’


We’ve had an exciting week this week as we have watched ‘Project Playground’ starting to take shape. The children can’t wait to get climbing, exercising and challenging themselves.


It’s almost time to ‘Overcome those Obstacles’ and develop an ‘Active Body and Active Mind’


Next week is going to continue to be busy as there will be some assessments throughout the week to gauge where the children are already at, within their new year group, what targets they need to work on next and what we really need to do to further their progress.


We are always trying to ‘Nurture, Develop and Grow’


Next Wednesday we look forward to ‘No Pens Wednesday’. The day is a national event that encourages schools and settings to put down their pens and to run a day of speaking and listening activities. ‘No Pens Day Wednesday’ also raises the children’s awareness of speech, language and communication needs and how important these skills are for life.


It’s so important to be ‘Inclusive, yet individual’


Have a super weekend everyone!
