Dear Parents and Carers

I can’t believe we have finished our first half term – it seems to have flown by!

We have had a fun and busy week at school. Reception children had an Autumn Celebration afternoon when their grownups were invited to come in and make and play. They had lots of fun and finished by singing two songs. Year 1 have been thinking about Divali this week, creating a dance and making colourful Rangoli pat-terns. Year 2 have been designing and making sea creatures that are made from the most exciting and unusual parts of real crea-tures! We thought that they were quite scary, so watch out next time you go to the beach!

Year 3 & 4 have completed some very successful innovation projects this week. The children have loved applying their learning creatively and have produced some amazing work – Year 3 making skeletons and Year 4 making lighthouses with electrical circuits. Year 5 & 6 have enjoyed learning about Hinduism this week. They have been focusing on the festival of Holi which celebrates the winter harvest and the beginning of spring. They demonstrated our understanding of this festival by celebrating every colour of the rainbow- the colours of Holi.

We have thoroughly enjoyed welcoming so many parents and carers into school this week to celebrate their children’s learning at our topic landings.

Parents’ evening is coming up soon – on the 7th and 8th November – and we will have signup sheets outside our main office at the beginning of next term so please make sure you make an appoint-ment to meet with your child’s teacher and find out how they are progressing.

I hope you all have a restful half term break and I look forward to welcoming the children back to school on Monday 30th October.

Best wishes,

Miss Williams
