We have had a big focus in school this week around antibullying…it was national anti bullying week. Your children mayhave spoken to you about ‘bucket filling’…it’s worth asking them ifthey haven’t!
Once again some fabulous learning this week across all classes. Ithink Jet and Jade classes couldn’t cope with the demand for theirGingerbread Men, I’m not sure they expected such interest and Iknow some children were disappointed in being unable to buyone. Just like the story says ‘Run, run as fast as you can, you can’tcatch me I’m the Gingerbread Man!’
Don’t forget parent Drop In is the week after next. (Tuesday 28th3.30-5pm) an opportunity to look with your child at their work andsee for yourself the great learning that is going on day in day outat school.
Next week we have our Take Over Day. Children from years 5 and6 were invited to apply for all roles across the school. The youngGovernors, along with Mrs Simpson one of the ‘old’ Governors,selected the candidates from their anonymised application forms.It will be interesting to see if the school runs a whole lot smoothernext Friday!
Take care and have a lovely weekend
