KS1 Circus world designers

Imagine having the chance to design your own circus world… well that’s exactly what happened to the children in key stage 1 just before the half term holiday! To make it even better, family and friends were also invited to help out with the designing and building process. What an incredibly talented set of parents we have! Teachers were amazed by the wonderful creativity displayed by our awesome parents and children. Thank you so much! The next day, we had a gallery and Mr Scott, Mr Daintith and Miss Hardy visited us and asked us lots of questions. They were very impressed with our wonderful circus worlds!

 

WORLD BOOK DAY - Thursday 7th March

To celebrate World Book Day, we will be having lots of special reading events and activities taking place in school.

Fancy Dress Competition - Dress up as your favourite character from a book and explain why you enjoy the book (Class 11, 12, 13 can dress up on Friday as they are out on Thursday)

Book Sale - come and buy a pre-loved book for 20p or a specially designed bookmark for 10p

Create a book in a box - for homework represent your favourite book in a shoebox

 

HEAD LICE

Head lice can be easily transferred between young children, so it is very important that you check your child’s hair every week for any lice, or their small white eggs, often known as nits. Hair should be checked using a “nit comb” which can be bought from any pharmacy. If you find any lice or eggs, then you should treat your children - speak to your pharmacist about what to use. It is important that you continue to treat until all the eggs and lice are removed. If you child has long hair, keeping it tied back can help to prevent them getting headlice.

 

RADIO DERBY VISIT

Before half term we had a visit from the presenter Andy Twigge from BBC Radio to look at our new courtyard. He interviewed Miss Hardy and some of the children. You can hear the interview on www.bbc.co.uk/sounds - it was on 15th February, about 40 minutes into the programme.

ATTENDANCE

Regular attendance at school is vital to help your child achieve to the best of their ability. It is now the time of year again when our children will be getting coughs and colds, but they should not miss out on their learning because of this.

Remember that children must be in class ready to start their learning by 8:55am. Any children who arrive after this time must go to the office so that they can be registered correctly.

NEXT WEEK’S CLUBS

If your child would like to join one of the clubs collect a form from outside the office or from Mr Malooq.
