Next week’s value is Perseverance
“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:9
This week we have been focusing on our ‘enthusiasm’ for learning and it has been evident that everyone has made a determined effort to demonstrate this week’s important value!
Year 4 children enjoyed an exciting trip to the British Museum on Monday - an excellent stimulus for their spring term topic work - and they were great ambassadors for the school, with their excellent behaviour. Well done, Year 3 and thank you to our parent helpers.
School leaders have carried out our annual safeguarding and SEND audits this week as well as a review of our ‘healthy school’ status. I have been conducting lesson observations as part of our school’s monitoring and evaluation programme and the maths and literacy leaders conducted a book scrutiny on Wednesday evening.
Our hard-working PTA members are hosting the school disco this evening; KS1 from 6.00pm to 7.00pm and KS2 from 7.15pm to 8.15pm. Please collect your child promptly after the event as we are still encouraging them to eat healthily and try to fit in their nine hours sleep on school nights!
May I remind you not to allow visitors to access the school via the school gates. If visiting the school during the school day, please come in via the School Lane entrance and report to the school office immediately on entry. This is to maintain site security and help us to identify all visitors in case of an event like a fire drill. Thank you for your kind cooperation.
We look forward to welcoming you to tomorrow’s Celebration Assembly at 2.30pm; please note this will change to 2.15pm after half term, to allow for the setting up of our after school club, which will be on-site, from Monday 19th February.
Next week’s value of the week is ‘perseverance’ and we do hope that children will come to school ready to persevere, especially with their mathematics, as next week is also Maths Week! Please note the date for our KS2 parents’ maths Information evening on Thursday 1st February at 6.00pm; come a bit earlier if you would like to partake in refreshments. The maths evening will be led by our maths leader, Miss Clark, who will explain some of the mathematical terms and methodology used in classrooms, to help parents to confidently support their child’s learning at home. Friday 2 February’s Celebration Assembly (2.30pm start) will be replaced with a Maths Celebration Assembly.
Have a great weekend.
