Weekly Newsletter - 28th March 2024

We hope you enjoy the holiday and wish you a Happy Easter.  We look forward to seeing you all back on Monday the 15th of April.

We would like to wish all our children and their families who celebrate it, a Happy Eid and we hope you all enjoy your celebration with your family and friends.

Worship – This week Mr Leadbeater led Easter worship. We have being thinking about our Big Question, 
‘Is everything that you want what you need?’ this half term. We reminded ourselves of all the children around the world who do not even have what they need including those impacted by conflict. We decided to donate the money raised by this year’s Easter Raffle to UNICEF who support children affected by the current conflicts around the world.

We have raised £330.00 and we would like to thank all of you who have contributed.

“Excellent attendance is vital for children to flourish and achieve”

Attendance Remember as we move into the new term everyone can have great attendance. Being in school is the only way your child will be able to achieve their full potential. It also prepares them for high school and beyond when they have jobs.

Weekly Round Up 

Nursery - This week we have learnt all about Easter and Eid. The children made their celebration cards for the parents/carers. We made chocolate nests and decorated lots of Easter eggs using paint, collage and pens. We have read lots of Easter stories and sang spring songs: 5 little ducks and sleeping bunnies. We wish everyone a very good Easter break. 

Reception – This week in Reception, we have been learning all about Easter and Eid. We have enjoyed making cards and decorations. When learning about Easter we talked about new life and have enjoyed painting and crafting flowers and animals that we would see in spring. We have been developing our drawing skills this week and have been following videos and instructions of how to draw a panda a snake and an ice cream. We needed to listen carefully and follow each step to create our picture. We hope everyone had a lovely break. Please send photos to learning journals of the things you get up to in the holidays.

Year 1 & 2 - What a great term this has been. The children have really enjoyed their topics and visits and have produced some wonderful work as a result of the first hand experiences of visiting a farm in Year 1 and the mini-bus tour around Leeds in Year 2. Thank you to all the parents who attended the phonics meeting last Friday. The slides are now on the parents section on the website for those who were unable to make it. This year the Phonics Screening check for all Year 1 and some Year 2 children will be taking place in the week beginning the 10th of June. We will be sending out a quick guide for parents closer to the time. 

Year 3 & 4 –This week, Years 3 and 4 have completed their Science assessments following our new unit of animals and teeth. We have learned about different vocabulary, such as carnivore and omnivore, as well as learning what our teeth do and what they are called. In Maths, Year 4 have been looking at fractions, whilst Year 3 have been looking at measures, such as grams and kilograms. In our SEMH slots (social, emotional and mental health), we have been looking at conspiracy theories and how they can be harmful. We had discussions about what to do if we saw something online that we thought might not be true. 

Year 5 & 6 – Swimming - Swimming lessons will start again in the week beginning 22nd April.

Homework - A reminder that homework is now set on a Monday and the deadline for completing homework will be the following Monday.  Children who do not complete their homework will be expected to attend Homework Club on a Monday lunchtime.  

Personal Possessions - A reminder:  Children who bring mobile phones into school (reminder:  mobile phones only need to be brought into school if children travel to school and home on their own), keys, or anything else such as bus passes, need to be handed into the class teacher every morning.
