Head of School Update - Friday 20th November 2020

Welcome to this week's Weekly Update!


It has been lovely to see so many 'odd socks' today. As part of this year's Anti-Bullying Week' theme - 'United Against Bullying', children have been learning about our unique and individual differences and to celebrate this individuality. Across the week, children have been taking part in a range of activities - I was treated to a fantastic anti-bullying rap from all the pupils in Year 5 Kipchoge Class - a great way to bring the whole class together!


Pupils are really enjoying this term's learning journeys. In Year 1, some incredible dinosaurs evolved. Children worked together in groups to create the superb models that appear in this week's photographs. I'm sure you will agree that they are brilliant!


Thank you to those parents in Reception and Key Stage 1 who spoke to their child's class teacher during this week's telephone consultations. I appreciate this was very different from our usual setup and I am grateful for your support and patience - I hope you found the opportunity to talk with your child's class teacher, a useful one, and I hope we will be able to welcome you in to school with our next set of meetings in the Spring. Meetings for parents of pupils in Key Stage 2 will be taking place next week.


Well done to all of this week's winners from today's virtual assembly. The 'Stars of the Week' for this week are:


Reception - Flynn-Jack J.

Year 1 - Kamali M. and Oscar G.
