Head of School Update – Thursday 24th October 2019

Welcome to this week’s Weekly Update, and the last of Term 1!

It doesn’t seem possible that we are already one term down in this school year – a total of 34 teaching days already!

We’ve had a very busy week. I love the Paragon events and always look forward to these taking place in  school as they are a real celebration of the learning from across the term. I hope you have been able to join us at one of the Paragon events taking place this week. If you haven’t been able to, we will try to share as many photos as we can across the next couple of days. The events have been really well attended – we’ve had lots of things going on, including performances and workshops and the first Paragon event for our new Reception children who celebrated all of the thi. It’s been lovely to share the learning from Unit 1 with you.  Year 1 are looking forward to their performance this afternoon!
