In the last few weeks we've had some successful trips to Castleshaw outdoor centre for Years 4 and 5. All of the staff commented on what a credit they were to the school with their behaviour and positive attitude.
This week we have seen our Y6 pupils meeting up with their buddies from Reception to spend time reading together.
We've also had a great training session with our sports leaders from Years 5 and 6. On Wednesday all of the leaders spent some time with Mr Chappell and myself preparing for their new roles. They will start leading playground games from next week.
I wanted to remind all parents that earrings are not part of school uniform. The Governors policy is very clear about this, as they pose a high risk of injury. It is now 10 weeks since the start of the summer when I know some pupils had new piercings. We have allowed a bit of time for piercings to heal. From next week pupils who are still wearing earrings (including those who cover them with plasters) will not be allowed to take part in PE lessons. Please make sure earrings are removed for all school days.
Today you have blown me away with your generosity and kindness in the way you have helped Macmillan Cancer Support. This is a charity close to my heart and many of yours. They do a brilliant job in nursing cancer patients and supporting families during extremely difficult times. So whether you have donated cakes or joined us for a drink and purchased cakes thank you so much your donations. We will be selling cakes again after school today.
Towards the end of this half term you will receive a pupil progress sheet for your child. Following this on the 2rd & 3rd of November we will be holding our parents meetings for the Years Reception to 5. We will again this term be doing these by telephone and time slots can be booked using the normal system.
For Pupils in Year 6 their parents meeting will be held on the 9th November as Y6 and the staff will be at Robinwood the previous week.
Information regarding these will be sent nearer the time by the office staff.
Many thanks for your continued support. Mrs J Conway
We couldn't have asked for a better start to the school year. The pupils and staff have quickly settled back into their new routines and the freedom from so many Covid procedures.
Many of you have commented on how smart our Year 6 pupils look in their new uniforms. We agree with you, they certainly are becoming great role models to all of our pupils in the way they are conducting themselves and the care they show to the younger pupils. Our Year 6 are also becoming special reading buddies to our Reception children and have spent some time together today getting to know each other..
Thank you to all of our parents for making sure all of the pupils are dressed correctly each day. We do pride ourselves on the high standards we set and the neatness of uniform, it may seem like a small thing but all of the small things together make a massive difference.
Can I please request that pupils do not wear earrings to school on any day. We have shown a few weeks leniency whilst newly pierced ears heal. It is now over 8 weeks since the start of the summer holidays. Please ensure earrings are removed and if need be clear retainers are used. I'm sure you would hate for anyone to have a nasty accident whilst wearing earrings.
This week I have met with the new PTA committee and we had a really constructive meeting and discussed many new ideas for the year ahead. I Know they will be sharing with you their events nearer the time.
Our children in Early Years have settled in and adapted well to their new routines. They have become so independent in how they carry out their learning tasks, carrying their own lunch trays and helping to tidy up.
Next week sees our Year 4 and Year 5 going to Castleshaw Outdoor Centre to carry out tasks linked to their Topic work and PSHE.
I'm sure they will have a great time and hopefully the weather will be good too.
