Autumn Days and the grass is jeweled...
Welcome back everyone, it's absolutely fantastic to see all the familiar faces and to get to know a new group of children and parents. The teachers are all excited to be back (honestly!) and working harder than ever to get the best out of your lovely children.
Rockies, Andes and Himalayas are studying the Greeks this term using Mantle of the Expert drama techniques. We will be going on a trip to Liverpool World Museum on 25th November as well as visiting Princes Road Synagogue as part of our Judaism topic. Volunteers will be needed, please let Amber know if you can help (it'll be a long day).
Alps are going on a trip to the Moon and looking back to see what they can learn about the Earth. And Snowdonia's topic is Marvelous Me! which speaks for itself. Teachers are sending out class letters to give you more details and let you know how you can support your child.
And on that subject, I have just written a new homework policy which teachers and governors are checking at the moment. This is partly in response to the discussion at the parents' meeting last term, partly feedback from teachers and also a reaction to the research around homework. We will be seeking your views about the new policy soon.
Eat Well Week and Harvest Breakfast
Eat Well Week starts on the 21st October. We are just sorting the date for Harvest Breakfast as there is currently a clash with Flu Immunisation day (consent letters will arrive 2 weeks before). We'll let you have the date as soon as we can.
And finally we are looking forward to our whole school panto trip provisionally booked for the 4th December, oh yes it is! We will need volunteers again and as usual it will be first come first served but with priority parents (or grandparents) of the younger children in Snowdonia and Alps.
