Anti-Bullying Week

Next week is Anti-Bullying Week. The focus is ‘The Future is Ours, Safe, Fun and Connected.’ Throughout the week the children will be taught co-operative skills through ‘Working With Others’ activities and through playing team games. We will also be talking about e-safety. Next Friday we will all wear blue to raise awareness of bullying and to show our commitment to working together to stop bullying.

Fire Engine Visit

The Nursery had an exciting and informative visit from the Fire Brigade yesterday. The children enjoyed exploring the Fire Engine and learnt about fire safety. Our Reception children are looking forward to experiencing this next week.

Maths Specialist

Year 4 was very lucky to have an expert maths teacher teach a special maths lesson today. A number of teachers from other schools came to watch the lesson.

Maths Workshops

Parents are invited to come to school for the afternoon on Wednesday the 27th of November to attend a maths workshop. This is an opportunity for you to be shown, by the children, the calculation strategies they learn throughout Key Stage 2. You will receive a letter with further information about this afternoon.

Football Matches

We have 2 football matches next week. On Tuesday Middle Street play against St Margaret’s and on Friday we are playing St Bernadette’s.

Good luck team!
