I hope you all received and read the letter sent last week on Anti-Bullying. All classes will be watching the short film made by Dangerpoint this week and carrying out further activities on understanding what bullying is, knowing how to respond, who could help if a child is experiencing bullying and the importance of being kind to others.
Year three received a visit this week from Mr Les Kemp, a retired headteacher who runs a Reading Project aimed at encouraging parents to read to their children. The children had received a book a few weeks before his visit and parents had been asked to read the book to their children. Mr Kemp came in to discuss the book and children were given rewards if they had completed the book. The classes have now been given a second book and we hope they enjoy reading it at home. Mr Kemp will be returning in January. As a school we would encourage parents to read to their children throughout Primary school and develop a love of sharing books.
Learning through topics continues this term, with some classes continuing on their topic from last term and others moving on to new subjects. Key Stage 1 are highly engaged by their Great Fire of London topic and received a visit from the Fire Brigade to extend their learning on fire safety. In Outdoor learning children in the Dolphins class created houses made from twigs to represent houses in Pudding Lane and these have now been turned into bird feeders!
The festive season is fast approaching and I am looking forward to the many events which are planned. We have our Foundation Stage Nativity, Carol Concert and Christmas fete all in the diary. I look forward to seeing you at one or all of the events.
