Half Term Round Up

24th October 2014

As the half term break approaches, I have been reflecting on all the fantastic learning and exciting events that have happened over the past 8 weeks.

 

Dreams and Wishes

This half term, the whole school followed the same topic 'Dreams and Wishes'. As part of this topic, we encouraged the children to think about their dreams and wishes for the future. We had a great time during ‘World of Work’ week where the children met a wide variety of people with different jobs and careers for inspiration!

At the end of the week, the children came to school dressed up as what they would like to be when they grow up!

Thank you to those who gave up their time to come into school including: a pilot, chef, journalist, police officer, artist, architect and a vet to name a few!

 

Attendance

We are thrilled that attendance is continuing to improve this year.  It makes a really big difference to children’s progress when they have good attendance, so thank you parents for continuing to support us with this. A special mention to all those children who have 100% attendance this half term – I would list their names but it’s over half the school!!

 

Family Link Centre

We are really pleased that the roof to the Family Link Centre has now been mended so our parent classes and groups can continue without the worry of being dripped on when it’s raining!  

The womens’ express group with Miss Ditta and Geeta Lota from West Yorkshire Police has really taken off after the Eid party. ESOL classes are also happening on Wednesday mornings.

Coming soon to the Family Link Centre …

Stay and Play

Computer Classes

Fitness Classes

 

Harvest Festival

Thank you to those who sent your child with a contribution of tinned or packet food for the Harvest display. All items received will be once again donated to St George’s Crypt, a local homeless charity, where we are sure it will be very much needed and appreciated.

  

 

End of Half Term

I hope you all have a productive half term, what have you enjoyed learning the most?

Wishing you all a lovely break and I look forward to seeing you all back on Monday 3rd November.

I would like to congratulate all the children that reached 100% this half term, there were 106 children altogether. Also this week year 2 achieved 100% for the whole week, well done.

Well done everyone we reached 96% for this half term but I'm sure we can improve on this next term.

World of Work Week was a great success and I know the children asked our guests some very interesting questions!

All the office staff joined in on the Friday and got dressed up. We dressed as a milkman, a surgeon, a soldier and a member of an aircraft cabin crew. Can you guess who was who?
