This term we will be looking at the following value:

Kindness

Welcome

Dear Parents/Carers,

I hope all had a relaxing and enjoyable half term. The children have settled really well back into the school routine and I have seen lots of excellent learning taking place. Yesterday, a range of children from years 1 to 6 took part in the restorative elections and I am delighted to inform you that our ambassadors for the summer term will be: 

Huxley Year 1

Freddie Year 2

Grace Year 3

Brody Year 4

Ruby in Year 5

and Mitzi in Year 6.

The ambassadors will be supporting the children on the playground helping to ensure that everyone plays together in a kind and friendly way. We will be having our first assembly to parents about the restorative principles on Tuesday 12th July at 14:45. 

Thank you to all of you who completed the parent questionnaire. The feedback is incredibly useful and will be used to improve the education we offer as a school.

Have a great weekend.

Mr Griffin

Explorers

In FSU this week the children have settled back well after the Jubilee and Half Term holiday. They have been writing and talking about their pets and how to look after different animals. Those in on Thursday afternoon enjoyed their first tennis session with a qualified coach.

 

 

 

 

Pathfinders

This week we started our new PE topic of tennis! We are lucky to be joined by Miss Tucker who will be helping to teach us lots of new skills. We started off by working on our ball skills, we practiced catching and even clapping quickly  before we caught the ball! 

A reminder that next Wednesday we are going on our trip to the Cotswold Wildlife Park. Please ensure consent forms are returned as soon as possible.

 

 

 

Adventurers

Year 3 and 4 have been looking at different artists that create artwork based on plants and the rainforest. On Wednesday we looked at an artist calledĀ Henri Rousseau. We looked at a range of different pieces he created and then had a go at creating our own. We blended the primary coloursĀ  to help create different shades of green to help give our pieces depth.

 

 

Navigators

Children in Year 5/6 have been exploring Creation stories and this week have looked at what Christians believe about how the world was created. They acted out the Genesis story in RE.
