Welcome back!

Good morning everyone! I hope everyone had a restful half term and that we are all looking forward to a successful and happy new term leading up to Christmas and the winter break.

Getting creative during COP26


As part of our school’s ongoing engagement with the climate change event¬†COP26, we have been engaging with a number of online sessions run by experts. Our session this Friday is for children in KS1 and KS2, and it is a creative session. Therefore, we are asking all children to bring in (either tomorrow or on Friday)¬†a clean Tetra Pak juice or milk carton (ideally a 1ltr. long life container which has a foil interior).

New member of staff

We are lucky to have a new member of staff joining our class for the greater part of the rest of this year. Mrs Smith is a trainee teacher who will be in our class as part of her qualification. The children have done a great job already at making her feel very welcome and I know she is feeling very excited for the rest of the year.

Parents evening

Thank you to all the parents I was able to speak with as part of parents evening. Apologies for the technical difficulties some of us faced. I am pleased to have been able to speak with all the parents with a few exceptions which I am in the process of catching up on.

I will upload a post with some more insight into how this first week has been since the class have come back next week but I wanted to say that I have been very pleased with the outstanding attendance we have achieved so far and the effort and attitude the children are showing towards school. Keep it up Year 1!

Best,
