Dear Parent/ Carer,
WELCOME BACK! It was brilliant to see so many of you outside school on Wednesday and I have to say, the children have come back with nothing but enthusiasm and an eagerness to be the best they can! They have all settled exceptionally well into their new classes.
We welcome a number of new staff this week; Miss Johnston in Year 1, Mr Hallows in Year 5/ 6, apprentices Miss Moon and Mr Lamb in Year 3/ 4 and teaching assistant, Mrs Crossland in Nursery.
Teaching staff started the week off with two very busy and valuable training days which incorporated training on the use and development of Google apps for education, assessment without levels and the Big Maths scheme. It was extremely good use of our time and these agendas will undoubtedly impact on the quality of our classroom provision this year.
I started the week with an assembly which explained to the children about Queen Elizabeth becoming the longest reigning monarch in British history; I was impressed to see how many children already knew this!
Our Reception children have been settling in well this week, coming in for half of each day; we look forward to the first full week for all children from Reception upwards, next week. We also look forward to settling in the Nursery children over the course of the week.
Have a great weekend!
