Pupil Voice

Leah was asked to tell Mrs Manton all about the School Nurses Assembly and this is what she said…

Leah said, “They showed jars that had glitter inside it, you have to shake it and all the glitter spins around in different directions.  When you watch it, it calms you down.  They showed us another way to calm down. That was to draw a square in the air with your finger and slowly breathe in with your nose whilst drawing one side of the square and the second side breathe out with your mouth until you have finished drawing the square.”

Anthony was asked by Mrs Manton if he had enjoyed going to the Science Jamboree and this is what he said…..

Anthony said, “I really enjoyed the static electricity workshop. We used balloons and rubbed them in our hair and we moved metal cans with the static charged from our hair.  My cans moved the fastest so everyone used my hair.  What was really interesting was that we used poles that were connected to a clock and we put the poles in food and it powered the clock.  I used a cabbage and a potato.”

Arts and Crafts

Miss Sedgwick runs an Art and Crafts club that children can attend every Friday during Golden Time.  In order to make the club a great success Miss Sedgwick needs a constant supply of craft items such as:

Fabric Ribbons

Donations of the above would be appreciated.

Information

Play and Stay

Mrs Manton will be running a play and stay group every Wednesday morning from 9am until 10.30am.  Refreshments will be sold for a small contribution.

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.

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.
