What a busy half-term this has been thus far. Anti-bullying week, our bonfire discos, ‘Children in Need’ mufti day, have all come and gone, and we have yet to hit December! With three weeks left in the calendar year, it is really important that we use every available lesson in order to further our pupils learning. To that end, please could you continue to bring your child to school early every day possible. Our attendance is creeping up to the 96% (currently 95.4%) and it’s going to take a concerted effort to get us close by the end of the Autumn term.
The children have been involved in Assessment week during the course of the week, and this culminates in our British Values Dazzle day today. The children are always encouraged to try their best, and our assembly on Monday focused on the effort that we want to see. We also discussed having a positive attitude towards our learning and not being afraid to show our best efforts. We spoke about how worry and anxiety will affect our ability to showcase our best work, while a small amount of nervousness is a healthy and normal feeling to experience.
We have various visits and events on the go, please continue to check the calendar in order to stay up to speed with everything.
Our ‘Children in Need’ mufti day managed to raise £479.15, which is an incredible amount and shows the real generosity of our community – thank you so much!
Finally, please continue to read with your child at home in order to gauge their understanding, and talk about the themes that are coming though the books. Have a wonderful weekend!
