"We are all friends and together we succeed"


Dear Parents/Carers, 

 Here’s this week’s news:

We’ve had a really good start to the week with lots of different activities taking place that I’m sure your children will have spoken to you about. Here’s what’s been happening

 Challenge Day – Crime Scene

On Monday, all the children from Nursery to Year 6 were involved in trying to solve a crime scene in school! They were told that the “Sugar Snatcher” had broken into school on Sunday and taken all the sweets and chocolates from the cupboards. Everyone had to spend the day in small teams looking at evidence left on the scene and working out whether it was Goldilocks, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack Beanstalk or Hansel. All the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and rose to the challenge looking at finger prints, analysing statements and evidence and working out who the culprit could be. Many important skills around teamwork and resilience were developed through the day.

 Bikeability, Scooter Training and Road Safety Training

Throughout school, children have had lessons developing their ability to ride bikes and scooters as well as learning about how to be safe on the road. This has really supported children’s development with key life skills and we hope to have the same training next year so that children who didn’t access the training this year, will benefit from these lessons in the future. Mrs Forbes is also looking into getting some bikes and scooters that we can keep in school so that we can provide regular opportunities for developing cycling skills over the year.

 Attendance Letters and Eid

Towards the end of this week, you will be receiving your child’s attendance letter. Children with attendance over 96% will receive a green letter for good attendance.  Attendance between 93% - 95% will result in an orange letter and attendance below 93% will result in a red letter. If your child’s attendance is below 93% you may be invited into school for a meeting to discuss how we can support you with ensuring your child is in school every day.

 I am aware that many families will be celebrating Eid this weekend so I would like to wish everyone “Eid Mubarak” and I hope you enjoy the celebrations and time with your families. If Eid for your family falls on Friday, you will need to phone the school office to let us know if your child in not going to be in school. Children are entitled to one day’s religious observance if Eid falls on a weekday. However, if Eid falls on Saturday, we would expect to see children in school on Friday.


Best wishes

Alice Smith, Headteacher
