Dear Parents and carers,

Wow what a busy week it has been in school; the children in India class have been cooking up a storm in their food

technology making Marvellous Meringues and in Science they have made Incredible Ice cream using the endothermic

process.  We are in the process of updating our school library; a number of staff and children have been working hard to make sure that the books we have are up-to-date. We will be buying new books; we welcome suggestions of any great books that you have read and would recommend to others.

All of the children have been working on developing their independence and perseverance. It has been noted that a lot more children have been carrying their own belongings to and from school. A suggestion for next week’s focus could be, of an evening, the children making sure that they have all the things ready that they will need for School the next day; e.g. PE Kit, football boots, homework books, musical instruments etc.

I would like to thank parents for their co-operation in helping us with the safeguarding of our children as mentioned in last week’s Buzz. To reiterate: We would like to remind parents that the school gates will not be unlocked before 8.15am in the mornings for drop off and locked at 8.30am; there will be a member of staff on duty from 8.15am. It is important that the site can be secured promptly at 8.30am so we would politely request that once the children have been dropped off, parents and carers continue conversations off-site. It would also help our staff if, where possible, discussions with the class teacher about your child could be had at the end of the school day or messages could be passed through the school office or via the text messaging system. If you need to discuss a concern at length, we are always happy to arrange an appointment for you to speak to a member of staff.

Have a wonderful weekend, Mrs Lennon
