A message from Mr Beynon

We have had a busy and exciting half term. It was wonderful to see so many parents at our Harvest Festival Service in Church and then attend our Art Exhibition in school. We have received lots of positive comments about the art work from various visitors and members of the Redstart Trust and we plan to have more exhibitions of children’s work later in the year. We look forward to you arranging to meet with your child’s class teacher after half term (first week back) when we can update you on the start your child has made to the school year and share their targets for improvement. Your help in hearing you children read as much as you can and enabling them to log onto TT Rock Stars is also appreciated. I am delighted that the reformed POMs (Parents of Minerva) are planning the next events after the success of the summer fair. The next one is the Discos on Friday 8 November after school. The POMs have also been successful is helping the school receive a grant for some after school activities on a Tuesday and also a holiday club over half-term. There will be a number of events next term to which you are invited. There will be the Remembrance Display making in the Church by key stage 2 children (Friday 8 November); Christmas Decoration making event on Wednesday 27 November (all classes) and the Christmas Production by Reception and KS1 (Wednesday 11 and Thursday 12 December). We will also support Children in Need again this year with a fund raising event on Friday 15 November. We are still awaiting the final plans for our building project to expand the Nursery. I will keep you informed and will have a session when you can look at the plans and see the arrangements we will make for keeping the site and children safe during the building work.Categories: 1 CategorySchool News

I am pleased to say that we have had a productive start to the term, with children actively engaged in the first of the new curriculum gateways which focused on health and well-being.  This has included work on science and some artwork.  The next gateway is called Harvest and Hunger.  During the next two weeks our classes will be preparing for our Harvest Service in the Church on 11 October.  Following this you are invited to come into school and see our Art Exhibition which will celebrate the children’s work in relation to these first two curriculum gateways. We have also set time aside each day to focus on phonics (younger children), grammar and spelling (older children) and times tables.  Any help and encouragement you can give at home with hearing your child read (we ask for up to four times a week), support for homework tasks and allowing them to log onto TT Rock Stars will make a huge difference. We have a busy October planned with talks for Year 2 and Year 5 on Fire Safety; Toddler Group on Wednesdays; a new Tuning into Kids course, the choir singing at ASDA and school photographs. It is pleasing to see so many children with the correct school uniform and now only a very few have been asked to take their children home to change.  However, we still have a number of children who do not have the correct footwear and some who regularly forget their PE kit.  The parents of these children can expect to be contacted in the near future. Our work with community organisations continues with the POMs group looking for funds to run holiday and after school activities; the Link Centre holding a Halloween party in half term and the Riverside Church holding Messy Church sessions on the last Saturday of each month (28 September, 26 October and 30 November at 11am.)Categories: 1 CategorySchool News
