Year 4 Forest School Blog 1.10.17

Year 4 began learning survival skills this week and related this to their classroom learning about World War ll. They worked in teams to put up tarpaulin shelters, making sure they were secure and waterproof and using the resources they were given. The shelters were fantastic! The children also developed their communication, leadership and teamwork - well done Year 4!

Autumn Treasures 01.10.17

This weekend we have truly seen autumn come to life. Over the coming weeks why not enjoy an autumn walk, look and talk about the changes in the environment, collect autumn treasures and listen to the crunch of crispy autumn leaves under foot. Reception and nursery children would like to use the autumn treasures to enhance their learning, make observations and ask questions. We would love  some crispy autumn leaves, conkers, pine cones, acorns and any other autumn treasure that you might find along the way, please pass them to any member of staff who will direct them to Nursery and Reception . Thank you for helping us make learning come to life.

SCC Parking Information Sept 2017 08.09.17

Parking information for parents

~~8th ~September 2017~~


 

Parents reminded to park responsibly outside schools

With children back to school for the new term, parents are being urged to put safety first by parking responsibly during drop-off and pick-up times.

The Staffordshire County Council campaign is calling on people to park considerately  and reminding drivers that Civil Enforcement Officers will be visiting roads near schools right across the county.  Any vehicle observed parked on yellow lines or in a restricted area could be issued with a penalty notice, if not observed picking up or dropping off a passenger.

The campaign is also reminding drivers to switch off their engines when parked up, which is good for the environment and people’s health, and helps reduce pollution.

It is hoped that the campaign will also urge parents to consider alternative modes of transport such as walking, cycling, scooting ‘park and stride’ or a walking bus.  These all help to reduce congestion and pollution outside schools which is good for the environment, good for parents pockets,  and helps keep people active.

Appearances and Organisation 05.09.17

We have had a very busy Summer holiday as well as the 2 training days in school.  You will notice lots of changes when you arrive at school tomorrow.   I will be out on the playground first thing to welcome everybody back and to signpost anyone who is unsure as to where to go to their child's new class.   Please do ask if unsure.   All parents will receive a letter tomorrow evening informing them of developments and some other news items and reminders. 

In spite of best efforts and 7 weeks at it, the various building contractors were still on site last night (and likely to be back in this week) finishing work.  Year 4 and Nursery staff were only able to move into their classrooms at the very last minute, but with everyone pulling together we are delighted to be ready to welcome the children back!

However you may notice some construction type barriers still up on the Reception playground, as well as odd bits of builder type materials or refuse around the site (nothing hazardous or dangerous).  Please accept our apologies for appearances over the next few weeks as finishing touches are completed and the site is restored to former glory.  We are really pleased with the work that has been done and look forward to sharing it with you all soon! We think you will see that it has been worth the wait!

Back to School Information 23.08.17

Just to remind parents that school reopens to children on Wednesday 6th September at 8.45am.   Breakfast Club and Wraparound Care for children who have booked in will be open as normal.   After school clubs (football etc) will not begin until week beginning Monday 11th September.  

Children may return to school in Summer uniform up until October half term if the weather holds up and parents choose to send children in it.   (Please do ensure all new uniform is well labelled with children's names, including coats.)

 

Also just to remind parents that we will be celebrating Roald Dahl Day on Wednesday 13th September, where children may come to school dressed as their favourite Roald Dahl character.   Please do not spend a lot of money on costumes, homemade is best and could be as simple as the BFGs big ears, or smartly, primly dressed Miss Trunchballs or George and his pot of Marvellous Medicine.
