Pupil Voice

After Le Tennis had their conversation with a school in India via skype, I asked them “What did you enjoy about the conversation with the school in India?”

Ella said that she liked the fact that they did Taekwondo in their school and she liked it when the pupils talked about themselves and what food they liked.

Bethany liked hearing about what they liked to do and she liked it when one of the pupils started to sing for them.  Bethany said that the pupil sounded good but she found it hard to understand.

Ruby-Rose liked it when they showed the class all their talents, a little girl sang and a little boy stood on two other boys’ shoulders, Ruby-Rose was very impressed. She also liked it when they performed Taekwondo.

Finley enjoyed listening to what the pupils enjoyed and watching them perform Taekwondo.

David enjoyed it when they performed their Taekwondo, it made him feel nervous and excited.  He would like to visit the school in India.

After school sports clubs After school sports clubs are running and there are still spaces available.

Wednesday - Football for Years 2 - 6

Thursday - Street Dance for Years 2 - 6

Friday - Gymnastics for Years 2 - 6

All clubs cost £1 per club per pupil.  The clubs have continued into Term 2 and the cost for this Term per club is £7.

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.

Minutes late per day during the school year = Equals days' worth of teaching lost in a year

5 minutes = 3 days

10 minutes = 6 1/2 days

15 minutes = 10 days

20 minutes = 13 days

30 minutes = 19 days

Frequent lateness can add up to a considerable amount of learning lost, and can seriously disadvantage your child. School begins at 09.00am.  Please help your child to be punctual.
