This week’s updates …

We were all pleased to see so many parents at our ‘Meet the Teacher’ meeting on Monday and we hope you found this useful.  A summary of points discussed will be added to individual class blogs.

In an assembly this week we spoke to the children about being safe on the internet.

Children were reminded about the school’s E-Safety rules and we watched the internet safety video that we made last year with the children.  If you would like to view the video,  please click on the ‘Safeguarding’ tab on the school website’s menu bar.

Parking

As a result of the large number of cars parking in the school grounds, it is becoming increasingly difficult and dangerous for the school bus to enter and leave the school safely.

Can we please, please encourage you not to park in the school grounds.  The Red Cow is happy for its car park to be used during pick up times.

 

 

Breakfast ‘French Style’ in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support

We hope you can join us on Tuesday next week for our family French breakfast.  We are asking a minimum donation of £1.00.

Raffle tickets will also be available for £1.00 a strip. All monies raised will go towards Mac- millan Cancer Support.

Reading

Many thanks for the great pictures that we have so far received for our ‘Extreme Reading’ challenge.  Can any further pictures please be sent in by next Friday.

In the past children have had access to ‘Bug Club’ which is an online reading programme.  Because there was a substantial increase in the annual subscription for this we were unable to continue with it.  Many parents have asked if we would be using any other online reading programme.  We have now sourced ‘Reading Eggs’, which we will be trialling for two weeks.  I would like to emphasize that reading online does not replace the traditional paper/hardback book, but can be used to enrich children’s reading  enjoyment. Before committing, I would appreciate any feedback.
