Today we had a visit from Kate King from Severn Trent Water as part of our work on Healthy Schools Futures. She started the day with an assembly for all the children and then moved onto doing class workshops for Y2 upwards. The children enjoyed learning lots of interesting facts as well as thinking about the conservation of water at a local, national and international level. After their sessions the children were buzzing with ideas of how they might conserve water and the Eco- council will soon release some more information.
Yesterday afternoon Beech Class enjoyed an excellent afternoon at the farm where they were able to find out more about the workings of the farm and about where our food comes from. They children did themselves proud with their enthusiasm, the questions that they asked and their behaviour. Thanks to all the parents who kindly offered lifts to the children.
Just a quick reminder to check out the class blog pages as they are being updated weekly with the homework for the week.
Thanks for attending the parents’ evenings this week. If you found that you were unable to make an appointment please could you see your child’s teacher (s) to arrange a convienient time?
I have asked teachers to chase up missed appointments and so if you were unable to make it to an appointment or didn’t make one then please expect a call from your child’s teacher.
Don’t forget that next week we have parents’ evening on Monday from 3:30-6:00 and Wednesday 5:00 – 8:00. Parents’ eveings are a great opportunity to find out how your children are settling into a new class/ Year group and how they are doing with their work. It is also an opporuntiy for you to ask questions.
Each meeting is ten minutes long and out of consideration for other parents teachers must stick to that. and so if you have any questions or concerns that need a long time to discuss then it is much better that you arrange a separate time to see your child’s teacher.
Look forward to seeing you all next week.
As last year, we have got five lovely £5 book vouchers to give away that children can spend at the book fair. This year we would like the children to do something connected with the Hobbit.
Reception and KS1 children can design, draw and neatly label a character that they would like to read about in a magical story. If they would like to take it further the children could write a short story that involves their magical character.
Children in Key Stage two can design, draw and write an extended character description of a character that would like to see in The Hobbit. In their description the children need to consider appearance, powers and what their role in the story would be. If they wanted to take it further they could also write a section of The Hobbit only with their character written into it.
Give it your best shot. We will decide exactly how to award the prizes when the entries come in.
