Pupil Voice

We had an open morning this week, parents were invited into school to share spelling envelopes with their children.  Children in Mont Blanc (Class 3) were asked if they had enjoyed their parents coming in and this is what they said…..

Emelia said, “I was showing my Dad spelling envelopes.  My Dad had to cover the words up, Maizie, Mia and I were covering up each other’s words and then we had to spell them.  If we spelt the words correctly, we could put them in the ‘mini bin’.  I enjoyed having my Dad in the classroom with me.”

Aidan said, “I have won the most prizes in the class for the reading race.  I enjoyed my Dad coming into class with me.  We looked at spelling envelopes together.  My dad is very clever, he can spell all of the words.”

Information

School Lockers Due to limited space in the children’s lockers, we would like to encourage your child, should they wish to use a back pack, to bring in a small pack so that they fit more easily into the lockers and doors can be closed properly.  Ideally children just need a small P.E bag and their book bag in school.

School Uniform

Please ensure that you label your child’s full uniform, including PE and swimming kits.

Just a polite reminder: please do not leave litter on the school premises.

School Angel fund raising http://www.schoolangel.org.uk/aycliffe-community-primary-school.html Thank you to everyone that has supported the school by using School Angel, we have managed to raise £235 this year.

PE Kits

Could parents please make sure that all pupils have their PE kits ready and in school.  Each pupil has their own locker where their PE kits can be kept during the school term.

Late arrival at school

When your child arrives late at school, he/she misses the teacher's instructions, their morning task and possibly the introduction to the mathematics lesson. Your child may also feel embarrassed at having to enter the classroom late. School begins at 09.00am.  Please help your child to be punctual.
