I had a lovely start to the week working in the Nursery for a few hours– it was lovely to meet our youngest children, some of which had just started that day! All the nursery staff are so dedicated and work so well to maximise every learning opportunity possible with the children. We also had learning walks in Reception or FS2. Again it was lovely to see the children working so well and really being challenged to think hard and recall previous taught skills. The children in St Jude’s class have adapted well to their new teacher Miss Holmes who has settled in really quickly, although of course she is not new to the school but is fulfilling her new role brilliantly.
Mrs Champ has also fitted in very well to her role as “ Forest School Practitioner”- she now works 3 days per week taking groups of children out to work in our Forest School area. The aim is that every single child in the school gets to experience outdoor learning by a trained practitioner
Next Monday 22nd January sees the resumption of our after School Clubs and our first open morning. Parents of children in Y2, are cordially invited into school for a cup of tea/coffee and to then go into their child’s class and work along side them. This time we will be looking at how we approach number and calculations. For Y2 we will be paying particular attention to the Year 2 SATS papers that the children will participate in later in the year.
This week we have had 2 days with over 300 children taking a hot school dinner– this is amazing!! Its so much better for the children to have a hot midday meal especially at this time of the year– excellent news and well done to our kitchen staff for cooking such lovely food!
Have a safe weekend. Mrs Kathy Sexton
