Welcome back everyone. I'm glad to be back after Christmas, it was very busy and hectic but we had such a wonderful time. Our Christmas play was AMAZING.... The children were amazing! I hope the children had a super break and recharged their batteries, once again it is a very busy time of year. We will be starting our new reading scheme this half term. The scheme is quite simple, if the children read 3 times or more during the week, they get to move their name up the Peter Rabbit ladder. When the children reach the carrot (the top) they'll get a reading certificate. I believe that reading is the most vital skill that we learn in our lifetime so anything we can do to improve the children's we will. You all do such a brilliant job with your children out of school, it really does make a massive difference. See y'all on the playground!

Things to Remember

 

PE Day for Mr Johnson's class is Friday-please ensure children have their P.E kits in school. We may also have additional P.E sessions during the week so P.E kits need to be in school all week. We will send P.E kits home at the end of each half term and they need to be returned at the beginning of the following half term.

 

Snack money is 50p per week. Children can either bring it weekly (on a Monday) or half termly. We use the money to buy fresh fruit and vegetables which the children can have with their milk during classroom snack time each day. We also bake with the children on a regular basis and the snack money provided helps to buy the ingredients.

 

 

Book bags-please ensure that your child's book bag is in school everyday with their school reading book and reading record.

 

Water bottles-please ensure that your child has a named water bottle in school everyday.

WHISPER - Anonymous Reporting Tool

 

Sometimes it is really hard to tell an adult if you feel like you are being bullied. That is why we have subscribed to WHISPER. It is an anonymous reporting tool which allows you or your child to report any incidents of bullying and cyber bullying in confidence.

 

Click on the web link below to fill in a report. It will then be emailed to Miss Hughes (Online Safety Coordinator). Messages are checked as often as possible. In order to resolve issues effectively and promptly, please include your name. This will be kept in the strictest of confidence.

 

If you have any concerns or worries about your child regarding online safety and would like further advice, please contact Miss Hughes or Mr Lyons, the school's online safety co-ordinators or speak to Mrs Dainty, Headteacher.
