Dear Parents 

Welcome back after the Christmas break, it has been lovely to hear all the Christmas news. 

As I walked around the school this morning all the children were focused quietly on their learning and those that I met in the corridors were polite, well-mannered and quietly confident.  

Tuesday Staff Training Day 

On the staff training day subject leaders had the opportunity to share the developments in their subject areas and their current focus.  Staff have worked hard to build a curriculum to maximise the children’s learning by incorporating research based on cognitive science (how we learn).  There is up to date information about the curriculum areas on the website for you to refer to. What we haven’t lost is a vibrant, engaging rich approach in each subject area and we love to see the children’s faces light up with their new learning and hear them talk confidently about their understanding often making connections and expanding their schemas of knowledge.  


Next week we are going to monitor and evaluate reading across school and look at the impact of the new Boom Reader.  It has been great to work with you, as parents on this app and we can see the benefits in school.  Don’t forget to quickly sign the record after reading with your children which doesn’t need to be detailed but let us know the regularity of reading and if you like to expand your comments, we can support the children with ways forward and celebrate their interests.  Joe in Reception was heading off to the library this morning to find a fact book about dinosaurs … I hope he found what he was looking for.  

One Way System 

We are continuing to use the one-way system at drop off and pick up times as this reduces congestion, and we need to be mindful of social distancing again as COVID is on the rise. 

Thank You to Our Friends 

Well done to the Friends, who raised a record breaking £3400 at the Christmas Fair.  What an exceptional group of hard-working volunteers who are very ‘friendly’ and love to welcome new members to the group.  All are welcome and it doesn’t matter how much or how little time you can commit to – all support is valued.  

Have a lovely weekend

Mrs Alison Harvey
