Dear Parents and Carers
This week has been an exciting week for the staff and children. All the children have continued to focus on Friendship Fortnight, the school values and random acts of kindness. There has been a noticeable difference in children playing collaboratively and in their kindness towards each other. I trust you are seeing the benefits of our initiative at home!
Providing a broad and balanced, skills-based curriculum and creating memorable experiences is key to our educational provision. Year 3 have had a wonderful time developing their historical knowledge and skills, this week. They have examined Viking artefacts and looked at primary and secondary evidence to understand what life was like as a Viking citizen. Thank you to all of the parents and children who worked so hard to put together such wonderful Viking outfits. Everyone looked so authentic!
World book Day got off to a fantastic start and all of the children and staff looked brilliant in their costumes. Developing a love of books and a knowledge of a range of authors is crucial for all of our children. Much of the day was spent absorbed in reading and developing a love of books and authors.
With that in mind, I am pleased to announce that a famous author is coming into school on Monday 25th March. Grant Koper will be coming into school to read his story, ‘The Day Granny’s Knickers Blew Away’ and sign copies of his book. Please look out for the newsletter in book bags next week. If you would like to buy a copy of the book you will be able to do so. Miss Quarmby will be in touch with information and guidance on how to place an order.
The Red Kite catering team provided some delicious samples of food on Monday after school. The feedback from some of our Trust schools has been extremely positive. Mrs Bosworth has attached details below so you can provide us with your feedback. It is important to me that our children have quality food at lunchtime so if you enjoyed the taster session, please take a few minutes to have your say.
On a final note thank you for your continued support and have a well-deserved weekend.
