Happy New Year to you all, I hope you had a wonderful Christmas time. The teachers have planned wonderful learning opportunities for the children to enjoy this term, see the website for details of the projects, planned trips and homework ideas. After school clubs begin on Tuesday 22nd January for all children from Reception to Year 6 to enjoy, the choice form came out by email/text on Friday and needs to be returned by Wednesday.
We welcome Mrs Haygarth to the Nursery Team, she is the teacher on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, Mrs Rumsby remains the teacher on Monday and Friday. Miss Beedie has joined the Nursery Team to be alongside Mrs Woolston. Mrs Paine has moved to Year 1 to be the Learning Assistant.
Spanish teacher Mrs Smale left at the end of the term as she had been recruited for a fuller time role in another school. I undertook recruitment in December but was unable to find anyone with suitable skills and experience with primary aged children. I am not willing to cover this with supply as the children love Spanish and are making such good progress and do not want to jeopardise this with short term cover. Recruitment is underway.
Our new Parent Together Group met last week, the next opportunity to join the group is on Tuesday evening at 7pm. I would encourage all parents/carers to consider this, it is a group for you, to support you in your parenting.
Does your child find Reading, Writing or Maths tricky?
