Head of School Update – 2nd October 2020

Dear Parents and carers,

Welcome to this week’s Head’s update. I cannot believe we are in October already, time flies! The children really have been a pleasure this week and continue to work hard and impress their teachers.

Well done to last week’s Kings and Queens, it is always a real achievement to be crowned. Great job! They were:

Frankie B          Queen of YR Bell Class
Gracie M         Queen of YR Darling Class
Eleanor L           Queen of Y1 Edison Class
William L            King of Y1 Einstein Class
Maddie P          Queen of Y2  Gandhi Class
Junie T          Queen of Y2  Nightingale Class
Xanthe P          Queen of Y3 Hawking Class
Scarlett D         Queen of Y3 Pankhurst Class
Isla B          Queen of Y4 Curie Class
Anya W        Queen of Y4 Earhart Class
Lexi C          Queen of Y5 Mandela Class
Tristan B            King of Y5 Malala Class
Chloe H          Queen of Y5 Seacole Class
Marcus I             King of Y6 Clarke Class
Cameron W          King of Y6 Parks Class


Find out who is crowned today, next week! Kings and Queens should expect a visit with a certificate and a treat!

I hear that EYFS have been having fun and have put ‘Mr Bones’ back together again! They have enjoyed drawing around their own bodies in chalk too!

Year 1 have amazed us with their beautiful abstract art this week, the photo demonstrates how proud theses children are of their achievements. Great job!

Year 2 have been learning about the life cycle of a bee! I am sure they’ll bee experts in sharing this information with you!

Year 3 children have been working hard and ‘subtracting’ in mathematics; they have started using a formal method to record their workings out!

Year 4 have been looking at how to keep themselves safe on devices and have been learning about online safety.

Year 5 have been learning how to write a character description and using very technical strategies to make their writing reflect what they have learnt.

Year 6 have been learning about ‘Natural selection’ in Science (survival of the fittest) they have been identifying which animals and plants are best suited to the environment and whether the will survive or die out.

Please do take a look at our bulletin that is sent weekly, it has important events and dates for you and is a great way for us to let you know what’s happening!

Thank you, as always, for your support and understanding.

Have a very lovely weekend,

Miss N Baker
