Pupil Voice

How do you think the day went with author Helen Moss?

Jayden said that he thought the day was brilliant – he loved it.  He said that he really enjoyed building the mystery story and making up villains, Dr Wayne and Dr Einstein. Hayley said that she thought the day had gone really well, she learnt a lot of stuff to do with mysteries.  Hayley said that the whole class worked really well together.  She enjoyed the afternoon when she got to actually write the story.  The class had planned it in the morning and in the afternoon Hayley was able to write her scene.

SCHOOL ANGEL FUND RAISING

A big thank you if you have used the school’s web page http://www.schoolangel.org.uk/aycliffe-community-primary-school.html to purchase goods and services over the internet. As a quick reminder, buying goods and services from well-known brand names through the link will not cost you any more money! So far the school has raised £179 through our School Angel charity web page.  I am hoping to raise a lot more through this source over the lead up to Christmas as there are so many popular suppliers who are offering to give up some of their profits to us, for example, Amazon, Marks and Spencer’s, Argos and a number of popular holiday companies.  Perhaps you could go and have a look at the list of suppliers… you may be surprised! It has taken us 18 months to raise £179 as a school and so I don’t think that many people have been using the School Angel.  If the school doesn’t use the School Angel newsletter it will be removed from the School Angel website. I really hope that we won’t be one of those schools as this is a really easy way to earn extra cash for the school.  If you think you can help with this fund raising opportunity and are unsure what to do please email and Louise Birch will let you have some more information. Thank you for your continued support.

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 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.
