NEWSLETTER—ISSUE 9 – 24th NOVEMBER 2017
Good morning Everyone
This week, we have been monitoring the teaching and learning of maths. I have been joined in
my observations by my deputy, Mrs Kenyon, and also our local authority adviser, Steve Ford.
It’s been great to see excellent classroom management, children engaged in their learning,
using a range of concrete resources and drawings to aid their understanding, and greater
fluency and reasoning across the school. We continue to work hard on ensuring that our ex-
pectations of all children’s achievement in maths are high whilst meeting individual needs.
Please keep supporting your children at home with their learning - those who are completing
their homework and regularly accessing Mathletics are making faster progress. Thank you.
Thank you to all those parents who attended our Maths Information Evening last week. We hope
you got something out of it - I know many parents did because they told us so. I shall put
the presentation and other documents on the school website on the Maths Page, so do look out
for this. We will keep talking about maths and keep working hard to be the best we can be!
It’s not all about maths though! As part of the National Anti-Bullying Week last week, we
focused on kindness and equality, and music continues to create a positive vibe in the
school - lots of singing (our new Choir who meet with Brenda Pickford are doing really
well!) as we begin to prepare for Christmas; and lots of instrument playing too - wonderful!
Don’t forget to come along to the PTA Christmas Cracker next Friday and bring your friends and relaƟves. It’s
going to be brilliant!
7 Days and Counting!
We've got an amazing event planned - our best Christmas Cracker yet!
To make it marvellous, we need your help!
1. helpers from 1.15-3.20 to set up
2. helpers from 3.20 to 6pm on the entrance, in the grotto, on stalls and serving refreshments
3. cake bakers (flapjack, brownies and cakes please!). Due to allergies in school, we can't have
nuts in any cakes we sell.
Please let the PTA know if you can help in these ways. You can leave a message with the school
office, or email the PTA on
It's down to us to make sure the children aren't disappointed :-)
