ROCKSTAR FRIDAY

Rockstar Friday was a rocking success last week. All children dressed up as rock stars as did many of the teachers! The day focused on the launch of TTRockstars, a fun and competitive way for children to practise their times tables and division facts. All children have been given a username and password which enables them to log on at home and challenge friends in school, teachers and even children from all around the world! Children can design their own avatar and the more they practise, the more coins they will earn. These can then be used to buy their avatar new clothes or a new hairstyle. If you have any questions about TTRockstars, please ask your child’s class teacher.

Rock on!

We have had some children in Nursery taking the wrong jumpers home. Please can you check any jumpers you have at home to make sure you have the right one. Thank you

Name labels

Please make sure that all your child’s uniform, PE kit, glasses and anything else that they bring to school has their name on it. Then we can help to get it back to them if they lose it.

 

DDAT

We are pleased to announce that today, 1st February 2019, we officially became an academy as part of the DDAT multi academy trust. You and your children will not notice any difference in the day-to-day running of the school, but we look forward to the benefits that being part of DDAT will bring.
