I must say that I am very excited whilst writing this as our Young Voices choir have just left and I am off to Birmingham later to watch them perform at the Genting Arena in this year’s concert which I know will be amazing.
Poor Mrs Haines has a sore throat and nasty cough but I can guarantee that it won’t stop her from singing and dancing in the performance!
Miss Smith and Mrs Tree were extremely pleased with the behaviour and attitude to learning demonstrated by the Y6 pupils when they visited the National galleries of Justice in Nottingham on Monday. Our link governors also commented on the quality of the questions asked by the children and their respectful attitudes which is really good news. Trips and other first-hand learning experiences are always really useful as they put learning into context and make it relevant as well as being great fun and I am looking forward to seeing them develop their skills and knowledge as the term progresses.
Thank you to the parents and carers who attended the Y6 SATs workshop on Tuesday to find out more about the tests and what the week will be like. It can be extremely stressful but in a strange way it can also be quite fun as it’s your chance to show what you can do and achieve the recognition you deserve for the hard work you’ve put in over the year. I must say that I’ve witnessed some very positive and sensible attitudes when Y6 have been practising again this week and am confident that everyone will do their best in May.
Our Egyptian themed lunch today has gone well and we have had positive feedback from guests who came along to join us. We have another themed lunch on 14th February (with Y6 parents and carers) as well as an invitation to all parents/ carers/ governors to come along and join lessons on Monday 29th January from 8.50am to 10am. Don’t forget that Mrs Staddon is also running a Singapore bar workshop for parents, carers and pupils on Tuesday 23rd January straight after school and there are prizes to be won for those attending!
Well done to Foresters for taking the lead in the first house point race of the New Year; to Polar Bears for 100% attendance and to Orangutans for the best class reading scores.
Take care and have a super weekend,
