Headteacher's Update - 30th January 2012
We had a really good Healthy Schools week last week. The Junior School children also came and shared their Eco School ideas with us in an assembly. The money raised from our Carrier Bag Sale will go towards a recycling project in the school. The Governors spent 'Happiness Day' with us and learnt a lot from the children about what they enjoy doing in school. They really like doing their best work!
The teachers shared the things that made them happy, including a song and dance , an amusing story and a visit from Mrs Belas' dog Gilbert.
Headteacher's Update - 23rd January 2012
This week we have Healthy Schools Week. The children will be learning more about healthy eating, good hygiene, exercise and rest, saving energy and recycling. The Junior School children will be talking to the Infant children in assembly about Eco Schools. The community school nurses will be working with the children on healthy foods and handwashing. On Thursday we have a carrier bag sale for children to bring and buy second hand toys. At the end of the week we will have our Governors in to look at our lessons and work and join in with our 'Happiness Day'.
Headteacher's Update - 6th January 2012
We have had a good start to the term. The children have all settled quickly and are working very hard. We have been impressed by all the lovely writing this week. Clubs start again next week. Please note that these are currently for Yr 1 and 2 only and not for Mrs Edwards' class and the other F2 classes as yet. We will let you know if and when spaces become available for F2 children. We are having an ECO day on Thursday 26th January. There will be a Carrier Bag Sale where children can bring their unwanted toys and books and buy different ones! This will teach them a new way of recycling. There will also be second hand uniform on sale that day.
