We had a wonderful time at Sheffield Arena last Friday evening taking part in a Young Voices concert. Twenty-one of our children joined over 4,000 children from around the area in a spectacular event and a wonderful time was had by all!
As many of you may be aware, we are in the process of totally modernising our school library. Installation began this week and we can’t wait to see what it looks like over the next few weeks as it is completed.
Do you feel like you would benefit from some help, support and advice on your mental and physical wellbeing? Three sessions will run in school, which will focus on how small changes can see big results and improvements in physical and mental health. These will be friendly and informal sessions (for adults only) and will run on Friday afternoons between 1.30pm and 3pm, starting on 17th January, Anyone interested, please see our Parent Support Adviser, Mrs Rowson.
Calling any of our EAL parents who would like help in learning English! Mr Clayton, our EAL expert, runs a parents café every two weeks to which all are welcome. In these informal sessions Mr Clayton will help with language that will help you in your day to day life and, particularly, around your child’s education. Next Learn English café is Wednesday 29th January.
Thanks to all the parents who attended the KS1 SATS meeting earlier this week. Don’t worry if you missed it – Mrs Hampshire can answer any questions that any of you have around this issue. Please don’t hesitate to ask if you have any queries. A reminder that any parents who have children attending booster classes after school that the children need to be collected form the classrooms rather than reception to prevent congestion. Thank you.
Mrs Hampshire and Miss Rothery held their first parents’ phonics workshop last Wednesday. Thanks to all the parents who attended. Anyone wishing to join next week is welcome at 2:45pm on Wednesday 22nd January.
On Friday 10th January, we had Chris Schofield from the YCB visit school to teach our VI children and their friends the rules of table cricket. Thank you to Chris for his time and a well done to the children who took part in the event.
We hope that everyone has a lovely weekend. We look forward to seeing all the children back at school on Monday.
