Snapchat information 06.07.17

Some of our parents (and staff) may well use Snapchat.  In some families there will be older teens also that do.   Just to make you aware of a new feature which tracks your location fairly precisely.  Obviously this could leave young people or adults at risk of being followed, met etc.

Please click here for more info from the BBC.

Today RP did lots of team work at Forest School. The worked as a big team to help Mrs MacKinnon make a shelter to protect them from the rain, they worked as a team to collect sticks for the campfire and huddled close under the shelter to keep warm and dry whist the snacks cooked on the campfire. RP sampled toast and Marshmallows cooked outside on the fire. The verdict.....delicious!

Year 4 Leaver's Hoody 26.06.17

The Year 4 Leaver's Hoodies have arrived, ordered by Mrs Evans.   I hope parents are pleased with them, having seen one, I think they look fab!   Should any parents wish to have their child's initials printed on the front of the hoody please go along to Bradsports, where you can do at a cost of £2.    Any parents who wish to order one, but didn't originally, can go along to Bradsports and order should they wish to.

Children who have purchased a hoody may wear them to school on the last day of term, should they wish to.   In addition to this any children who wish to have shirts signed should also do so on the last day of term, by bringing a spare shirt to school (not the one that they are wearing) as well as a suitable pen.

A visit from Sabbah! 23.06.17

Today children in Years 1-4 enjoyed a visit from a school teacher who came to share some information and facts about Islam.   At St Nicholas (as is the case for all diocesan schools) children learn predominantly about Christianity and are expected to study other faiths, one of which at St Nicholas is Islam.   The lady who came to talk to us, Sabbah, was very entertaining and interesting and the children got a lot from the presentation.   Rev Simon joined us for the session, as both the school vicar and school governor and was pleased with the way the children showed respect to our visitor.   A big well done to all of the children for their excellent behaviour and interesting questions!

RP Forest School Blog 19.06.17

RP had a glorious Forest School afternoon in the sunshine this week. They learnt the 3 ingredients that are needed to light a fire and also how to make sure they keep safe around a campfire. Special sticks called kindling were collected and Mrs MacKinnon showed the children how to make a spark with a fire steel. They watched carefully to see the spark light the tinder and start the campfire. They sang the campfire song and asked lots of inquisitive questions about the campfire. To finish we lay down and looked at the patterns the clouds made when they moved in the sky.

Keeping Cool 19.06.17

A big thank you to all parents who sent the children to school today with suncream applied, with hats and caps and water bottles.   As it has been exceptionally hot today and is likely to be tomorrow, all children may come to school in own clothes (shorts, t-shirts etc), as long as they have sensible shoes please (no flip flops or sandals that could prove dangerous when running about etc).   Likewise I will be giving the same message to staff so as to keep them comfortable.   KS2 children will wear PE kit all day as it is their Sports Day anyway.

RB Forest School Blog 14.06.17

RB were challenged this week with the task of collecting everything we need to make a Forest School fire. They collected "snappy kindling" sticks and longer fuel sticks. They had to check they made a good "snap". This meant they were dry enough to use for a fire.   Mrs MacKinnon showed RB how to make a tepee shape with the kindling sticks and add the tinder inside. RB learnt and followed the rules to keep safe when the fire is lit. Mrs MacKinnon use a fire steel to light the tinder. It was very exciting when the sticks started to burn too!  Next time we will use the fire to cook some food.
