Welcome back to the second half of the Autumn term!
We have held our first Themed Week of the year this week – Spelling and Phonics Week! All the classes have been taking part in exciting and varied activities to support them in their spelling and in the understanding of how phonics work. A BIG Thank you to all the parents who attended the parent workshop yesterday morning. Miss Beynon and Mrs Carter had taken a lot of time to put together the presentation and all the feedback has showed that it was really worthwhile! I hope you will enjoy using the resources they showed you with your children to support them in their learning. If you missed the presentation I have put it up on the school website, please do take a look and try the ideas at home.
Parking: Sadly this is still an issue outside our school both in the mornings and the afternoons. Please, please can I ask all parents to plan the journey to school carefully. Allow plenty of time and think ahead of a sensible and considerate place to park, thus ensuring that cars never obstruct driveways or endanger pedestrians by blocking pavements.
We have asked the Black Horse pub if we may use their car park and they have very kindly agreed. However they ask that cars do not block their gates as deliveries are made at all times of the day and please park considerately. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the management of the Black Horse for their support in helping us to keep our children safe on their journey to and from school.
Punctuality: Please remember that the school day starts at 8.45am and all children must be in class by 8.55am when the register is taken. The governors have asked that we monitor the punctuality of all children and they will be writing to parents of children with persistent lateness.
We have a number of new reading books in school and before the children can start using them they need to be covered in sticky black plastic as a protection. If you are able to give a couple of hours of your time to cover some of these new books that would be greatly appreciated. We can provide you with all the required equipment. Please pop into the school office and let us know if you can help.
Please look in your child’s book bag for our Computing Code of Conduct. We are asking you to read this with your child and talk about it together. Then your child needs to sign it and return the bottom slip to school. It is so important that we are all aware of the correct behaviours for using the internet in order to keep children safe. Thank you for your support in this.
If you ever have any concerns, or questions you wish to ask, please do not hesitate to arrange to see me.
