This Friday children will be sent home with a target for reading and writing. We do not send home a target for maths because we now have rapidly changing individualised targets in maths books and often a termly target for maths is redundant within the first week or two.

When you look at the target you will see a title on the top which explains what area of the curriculum the target relates to. Underneath you will see a box on the left which tells you what the general area of the target is. On the right you will see a ‘must’, ‘should’ or ‘could’ target and one will be highlighted for your child.

Whilst we try our best to take education specific language out of documents that we send home it might sometimes be the case that you might want the target explained in more detail. Please feel free to pop in and see the class teacher if you are unsure about anything.

I’m looking forward to another exciting science lesson tomorrow afternoon when we will be thinking about why we need those, Seven Essential Life Processes to live. Can you remember what they are? Don’t forget MRS GREN might help you!

We will also be looking at how much sugar there is in a variety of food and drink. I think some of you may be surprised at how much sugar there is in some foods, which we consider to be healthy.

See you tomorrow.

As we are not due a newsletter until next week I thought that it might be good to give you a few dates and pieces of information that might be useful.

Firstly, don’t forget that our brilliant breakfast club runs from 7:30 am and is the perfect way for children to start the day with a nutritious breakfast and lots of super activities to do. The cost of the club is £2.50 which is great value for an hour of child care along with breakfast.

Pulse Club will start on Monday and interested children in Year 4 upwards will be given a letter this afternoon.

Class information evening will be on Wednesday 11th September. This is a brief information session during which the teachers can share class routines, timetables and other useful information with you. The sessions are open to anyone, not just new parents. If your child has moved into a new class or has a new teacher it might be useful to attend. Teachers will run the first session between 5:00 – 5:30 pm and then repeat it from 5:30 – 6:00 pm.

Other dates for your diary:

Reception photos are at 9:30 am on Tuesday 10th September.
Stroud High Open Morning on 17th September (please check on Stroud’s website).
Kingshill Open Evening on 19th September at 6:30 pm.
Stackpole Meeting on Monday 23rd September at 5:30 pm.
26th and 27th September Kingshill Open Morning from 9:15 – 11:30 am.
Deer Park Open Mornings are 16th and 17th of September from 9:15 – 11:15 am.
Deer Park Open Evening is Wednesday 25th September from 6:30 – 8:30 pm.

If you are interested in your child starting music lessons please see Mrs. Turner in the office. Lessons will be starting very shortly.

Finally, if you managed to collect any tablet tokens over the summer please could you return them to Mrs. Turner in the office.

Welcome Back

A really massive welcome back to everyone. I hope that you have all had a wonderful summer and are looking forward to a fun filled, hard working term in which we can all grow our minds just that little bit more!

I would like to say a special welcome to all our new parents of children in Reception and across the school. I hope that you manage to attend the coffee morning on Wednesday 4th September which is a great way to meet other new parents, along with a few of our wonderful KPG.

Please feel free to pop in and see me if you have any questions or concerns.
