Head of School Update - Friday 11th March 2022

Welcome to this week’s ‘Weekly Update’.


As always, our pupils never fail to impress. I have, as I always do, loved sharing and celebrating learning with pupils this week. Pupils in Year 1 have been inspired by the art work of William Morris, and are really enjoying their learning and I have been impressed with the confidence of our Year 4 pupils who have been adding and subtracting fractions, some with different denominators. There has been some fantastic presentation across the school this wee, with a huge amount of focus, concentration and determination to improve. Some of our pupils in Year 6 have been developing a real talent for photography, as part of a small project. We hope to share some of their images very shortly.

‘Thank you’ to all of those pupils who entered our ‘Short Story Competition’, as part of our ‘World Book Day’ celebrations. We had alternative settings, diary entries, moody-mysteries, typed and hand-written stories, all within a 500 word limit. All of the children who took part were given a small chocolate prize! This year’s prize winners were Bethany V. and Aiden R-S. The overall competition winner was Kodi L. in Year 4. ‘Well done’ to all of the children who took part.


Please see this week’s Bulletin for information about Parents’ Evening, dates for Term 4 Curriculum Events and our plans for Comic Relief, on Friday 18th March. You will have received a couple of letters today. These are also available on our website.


Have a great weekend! I’ll look forward to seeing all of the pupils on Monday!
