Headteacher's Update - Friday 23rd September 2022

Welcome to this week's Weekly Update!


We held our Harvest Celebration Assembly at Oakwood today. Thank you to all of those parents and pupils who donated for our Harvest festival. Our Rainbow display looked superb, and we were able to handover all of the donations to the Eastbourne Foodbank. They were incredibly grateful for your generosity this year. We have added some photos to this update. 


Well done to all of this week's certificate winners - our Mathematicians, Writers and Stars. The full list of this week's 'Stars of the Week' can be found on the school Bulletin (a copy is available on the school's website). 


Pupils have shown great determination this week, really giving their best and overcoming adversity - a real determination in 'Being Better Every Day'. Teachers have been impressed with how focused pupils have been and the effort they have shown - nothing less than 100%.


Pupils in Year 1 have been using Numicon to add together two single digit numbers and write their number sentences in Maths. We've been practising our number formation, making sure their numbers are written correctly. In Year 2, the pupils have been looking at all of the ingredients that are need to make a good friend. They thought really carefully about their ideas. They have also been enjoying their lessons with Miss Fairhead. In Year 5, pupils have been learning how to separate materials, and have had lots of fun doing so. In Year 6, pupils have been learning about the creation story in RE, and enjoying some really good discussions. The children used drama to recreate the seven days of the creation story. 


And a very big 'Well done' to our Reception pupils who have been brilliant for the whole of this week - they have made a very settled start. 


In our Attendance Challenge, Stephenson Class (18 points) and Logie-Baird Class (20 points) are the early front-runners. Please see the Bulletin for a full attendance update. 


Just a reminder that our 'Meet and Greet' is taking place on Tuesday (27th September), for pupils in Years 1 to 6. This is a chance for parents to see their child's classroom and meet their new teacher. We will start shortly after the end of the school day and finish around 4.00pm. I hope you will be able to join us. 


Have a great weekend!
