The Life Channel
You may be aware that our “Life Channel” screen in the playground as you enter the gates by Key Stage 1, has now been updated so that the content reflects what is happening in school. My rationale for the installation of the Life Channel was to replace our Robin Hood TV with a better system which could be shared with parents, carers and visitors to the school. I also intend to stream The Life Channel to our school website so that parents who are not able to collect their children from school, get to see what is happening in their child’s classroom. As a full time working mum myself, I find this a challenge so I am striving to make the learning as accessible to all as I possibly can.
Not long now for the valentines disco.... Our helpers have been counting your invites, printing the tickets and buying the goodies to sell to all you wonderful dancers. Thank you so much to all the parents and carers who have come forward to offer their services for the evening to help, without your help these events, our children really enjoy, could not go ahead. If anyone else is available on the 12 February to help out at either disco please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you haven't already posted your invite, with your details and parents/carers details and your £1 in the silver box outside the office please do so as soon as you can so we can then issue you a ticket.
Our next parents coffee morning will be on Monday 10th February 2014 between 9 am and 10 am with Miss Thackeray in Friendly Faces. You are invited to come along with positive suggestions which are relevant to the agendas that we set. Any other issues can come directly to me. It is important that we use the limited time that we have together to best effect. The agendas for next time will be:
Next Friday (7th February) we will be having a real life rainforest experience and we will get a chance to meet some real animals from the rainforest. I have attached a letter to this newsletter about it. Please complete the reply slip and hand it in to your child’s teacher if your child attends Wednesday to Friday.
