This term we will be looking at the following value:

Kindness

Welcome

Dear Parents,

It has been a very busy week at Charlton with the year six pupils sitting their Mock SATs. The children have worked incredibly hard and we have been very impressed by their resilience and determination. Next week, pupils in years one to five will undertake a range of tests in reading, maths and grammar. This will provide all children with a chance to showcase their skills as well as giving teachers useful information to support their planning ahead of the summer term.

We are still recruiting at Charlton for a lunchtime supervisor as well as a cleaner. If you are interested in either of these, please come and see me or send an email to ross.griffin@charltonono.co.uk and I will provide you with more details. The closing date for both roles is Friday 1st April.

Have a great weekend,

 

Mr Griffin.

Explorers

In FSU this week the children really enjoyed a visit from some firefighters to conclude our ‘Help is at Hand’ topic. The children were even allowed to sit inside their fire engine!

 

 

Pathfinders

The children in Year 1 and 2 enjoyed a visit from the local firefighters. Miss Cooper even got to dress up in the uniform!

 

 

Adventurers

Year 3 and 4 worked hard this week in their art lessons. We have been working on skills to research, design and make vases, linked to our Greek topic. This week we used the skills we had learnt with clay. The children used clay tools and different techniques to mould and shape the clay into their shapes. Some of the children added handles while others attempted to add patterns.

 

 

 

 

Navigators

Year 6 have worked really hard on their mock SATs this week. Their hard work and resilience have been very impressive; they have maintained a positive attitude throughout all the papers. Well done, Year 6! 

 

 

Safeguarding

Charlton-on-Otmoor Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Our Designated Leads for Safeguarding are Ross Griffin, Headteacher and Amanda Clarke. They should be the first point of contact for any concerns around safeguarding and concerns linked to any child. They are both available in school. Heather Phillips is our Safeguarding Governor, and she can also be contacted via the school office.
