Christian Vision leads the way on World Mental Health Day!
This week it has been lovely to get back into classes and to teach. It has given me a chance to see behaviour, but more importantly the knowledge and skills being taught to the children from within a range of challenging content. Seeing groups of children applying their prior learning to new concepts has been a highlight for me.
It has been a week filled with events, such as the PTA Disco, a trip for Year 6 to Ormiston Venture Academy to work alongside some Year 10 pupils and their Virtual Reality sets as well as the Year 1 children's class collective worship based upon people who inspire hope. They all did really well. Thank you to the parents who shared it with us.
Children excelled themselves on Thursday raising the awareness for World Mental Health Day, as Caring Crusaders facilitated others writing messages on why it is important to share our feelings and what makes us happy.
Swallowtails won the House Team Points and Year 3 took this half-term's attendance victory with another weekly attendance win - their fourth. The school attendance team has now met and reviewed any concerning patterns of poor attendance. Letters regarding attendance will be arriving home soon.
Next week, we have parents' evenings so please ensure you have signed up. I would also appreciate you completing a survey I have for you on those nights and dropping it off in the deposit box on the blue sofa outside my office. Please remember teachers have only ten minute slots, so do not be offended if they draw meetings to a close as their next parents will be waiting. If you need longer than ten minutes, please arrange another meeting date at a time mutually convenient.
On Friday 18th October, we would like to invite parents in at 2:40pm to see the learning we have been doing in our foundation curriculum and celebrate this with the pupils. A notice reminder will be sent home next week.
Have a great weekend - I only hope the weather improves.
