Open Morning

Please don't forget our Open Morning next week.  We welcome as many parents as possible into school to be involved in childrens learning.

We received some very good feedback from parents who came to our last open morning in term 1.

Pupil Voice

Le Louvre (Class 2) have been using their bodies to perform animal movements and patterns.  They were asked if they had enjoyed it and this is what they said……

Melodie-Jo said, “I have been dancing in an animal way. We were in the jungle.  My favourite animal to act out was the giraffe.  I stood on my tippy toes and put my arms really high in the air to stretch up as tall as a giraffe.  It was really fun.”

William said, “I enjoy dancing as an animal, it’s good fun because we are in the jungle.  We listened to music to help us move as animals.  My favourite animal was a crocodile.  I made that dance up myself.”

Kai said, “I was dancing as a cactus did some actions by stretching my body.  I did this with my learning partner.  It was really fun.  My favourite animal to act out was a rhino.”

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.

Free School Meals

If you have access to the internet and would like to apply online for Free School Meals, please use the following website: http://www.kent.gov.uk/education-and-children/schools/free-school-meals.

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.
