Thank you to all parents that were able to make our post Ofsted meeting where we celebrated the work we have done as a collective team so far and discussed some of the plans for moving in to the future. Parents asked for clarification on the school’s mathematical calculation policy and for all children to have user names and passwords for Education City. We will cover the calculation policy at our Maths Evening (Wednesday 8th October) and we will ensure all children have a user name and password so that they may access Education City at home. However please note that teachers are not required to monitor any work completed on Education City by a child at home.
Today Class One and Class Two children were delighted and surprised when teddy bear maker, Julie Owen, came to school along with her wonderful variety of handmade teddy bears. The children were even more delighted after making their own teddies using colourful pipe cleaners. Julie would love to receive feedback from the children; please do enjoy spending time with your child going through the questions on the questionnaires sent home in your child’s book bag.
We held a Macmillan coffee morning in school this week; thank you so much to those people who came along to support this event. The children did a fantastic job of serving us all cake and we raised £90!
