Positive choices

This will be another short and sweet blog as I want to get it written and uploaded to show you all in assembly this morning. As I said in assembly on Monday, I am incredibly disappointed at the lack of commitment shown in taking responsibility for checking the blog to see what’s been happening and what is planned for the forthcoming week. However, I refuse to be beaten and stand firm to my personal beliefs and values and will persevere until things improve again and everyone starts to make positive choices and accepts responsibility for their actions.

The same has been true of behaviour and I am pleased that my reminders are slowly starting to have the desired impact and you’re starting to make more positive choices and remember the importance of being respectful and treating everyone as you would like to be treated yourself. We’re not there yet, but with lots of adult modelling (and nagging!) I am confident that we’ll be back on track very soon.

It has been wonderful to see classes enjoying “Duck Splash Sessions” in the middle area with Mrs Parker. The 4 ducklings are highly entertaining to watch and it has been lovely to see them hatch and grow.

The hall has been transformed once again into the Springfield Theatre and Mrs Haines has been rehearsing every day with the actors, singers and dancers who will be entertaining us next week with their version of Robin Hood. Scenery and props are being finalised and the technical rehearsal tomorrow will hopefully iron out any technical hitches with the lights and microphones so that next week’s performances run smoothly. In true showbiz form I am positive that “it will be alright on the night!”

Along with production, we have lots of other things happening including the Y3 trip to the Wolsley centre in Rugeley on Monday; a coffee morning meeting from 9am to 10am on Tuesday; Y6 Project Zoo presentation on Wednesday morning; Elmsleigh sports afternoon (with Y3) on Wednesday afternoon; Balloon Room’s rearranged trip to Cadbury World on Thursday; Y4 multiplication trials on Thursday morning (Orangutans class only); Open Afternoon in the Balloon Room on Thursday; Area Sports at Melbourne on Friday afternoon and non-uniform day on Friday in exchange for items for the Summer Fair. It’s exhausting just reading that list!

Due to the busy timetable we may have to rearrange the final Super Student assembly until we can find a time when all year groups are in school but I’ll keep you up to date.

Don’t forget that you should all be doing your best to sell the raffle tickets that have been sent home by FoS for the Summer Fair draw. There are some amazing prizes up for grabs and all profits raised come straight back to you so make sure you sell, sell, sell!

The photographer from QEGSMAT is due to come into school to take photos for our new website tomorrow afternoon so please make sure the school looks clean, tidy and welcoming and you all smile if you’re in one of the shots!

Miners have won the House Point race for the second consecutive week; Orangutans are looking after Churchill for the best attendance but I’m not sure yet who has won Oscar, the Kindle and the Premier League book box for the best class reading as totals are still being collected.

Don’t forget to cheer me up by answering the Blog Box question and putting the answer in the box ready for Monday morning. I’m looking for 50 returns so let’s see what happens!

Take care, have a great weekend.
