Weekly Update Friday 3rd February

What fun we had at the disco last night! Crazy M was as crazy as ever, with party games and dancing. All the teachers and parents had a good time too and some managed to have a boogie. Thank you to everyone who helped. 

This week, we had 6 new balance bikes and helmets delivered from a road safety  initiative we signed up to for our Year R balance bike training in the summer. We will let Year R parents know when we are starting this exciting project. 

We have put a new giant world map up on the wall in the newer part of the school, and every time the staff walk past we are finding children talking about the different places they have travelled to, learned about or have relatives. 


This week, in assembly, we read 'The Emperor's New Clothes' and discussed why the Emperor believed the two tailors, and how they had influenced his decisions. We talked about modern day influencers, and how the internet can be used to influence what people want/believe (such as the popularity of 'Prime' drinks). The children had lots of ideas on how they could try not to be influenced, and what the Emperor should have done.

Millie won the reading raffle this week, and she chose a new Winnie the Witch story. 5 children were chosen by their teachers to be ‘Star of the Week’ in Friday’s assembly for their amazing progress in reading- well done to everybody! 

Good luck to all the children playing in a match this weekend and we will look forward to seeing you Monday morning where you can tell us all about them. 

Best wishes


Mrs Riches
