Head of School Update - Friday 18th June 2021

Welcome to this week's 'Weekly Update'.


I hope you were able to see some of the photographs we shared this week. Our library is looking fantastic and the children are really enjoying the space, choosing a book and sitting to read.


Our pupils who attend our Nurture classes have really been enjoying themselves this week. In Mrs Snelgrove's group, the children have been talking about and acting out different emotions and reading stories about feeling sad and what we can do to make things better. They have also been learning some mindfulness strategies, to help them regulate, focus and transition back to class. We've shared some photographs at the foot of this update!


Pupils in Year 4 have been learning the text 'Kidnapped', as part of their writing unit. To help internalise the text, pupils learn a set of actions as a cue for the vocabulary in the text. This helps them to have a secure understanding of the text and its structure, when they come to write a version for themselves.

Wishing you all a lovely weekend.
