Newsletter 10 - 13th November 2020

Dear Parents and Carers,
We find ourselves at the end of another busy week in school and a week closer to Christmas. We’re not sure what restrictions will be in place by the end of term, but we do know that we will not be able to all gather together to celebrate Christmas in our usual ways. We will be able to still have Christmas Lunch and class Christmas Parties in school so we can make sure the children enjoy the season!
Colder Weather
We continue to follow the latest guidance on making our school as safe as possible. One of these ways is to ensure the ventilation in the classrooms is good. This means that doors and windows are open to ensure a good flow of air. As the weather turns colder this may mean that the children (and staff!) may wish to wear extra layers underneath their uniforms to keep them warm.
Odd Sock Day
It is Odd Sock day on Monday 16th November. This is to raise awareness of anti-bullying and to promote celebration of differences. We would like to invite your child to come in to school wearing odd socks with their uniform/PE kit on Monday. This will be followed up with discussions in Collective Worship and classrooms.
We hope you all enjoy a lovely weekend,
Mrs Griffith - Headteacher

Ravenous Readers in Year 4
I am very proud to announce that Benoit and James have finished the reading list for class 4 already! I am going to have to write them another list.
Benoit’s favourite book was ‘The Great Chocoplot’ and James’ favourite book was ‘Frank Einstein and the Antimatter Motor’. Class 4 have been enjoying reading their way through the books and in our classroom we have an amazing display of their names on stars for every book they have read.  Please take a look at our star readers on our class webpage.

World War 1 Trenches - Year 6

In Year 6 we have been learning in DT about trenches.  Many of us created trenches out of cardboard.  Some of our materials we brought from home and we shared them out.  We tried to make them very detailed and realistic so they could show what trench life looked like.  We all think we created masterpieces.
