This weeks news 23rd October 2020:

In DT this week our year 2 children have designed, created and evaluated their very own hand puppets.  The children strived, worked hard and did not give up even when the task got a little challenging.  Today the children enjoyed playing with their puppets during Wild Things Dress Up day.

Our Reception children have been enjoying painting pumpkins from Mr McGregors pumpkin patch as part of their Beatrix Potter theme, lots of beautiful paintings now fill our reception classrooms.

Today our year 2 children and teachers have been absolutely 'wild'

Fantastic costumes, face paint and imaginations have been displayed today across all three classes.

Parent/Teacher Consultation Feedback

Thank you to those of you who have already taken the time to provide us with feedback from our recent Year 1-6 parent/teacher consultations. The general consensus has been that they worked well and provided a good opportunity to talk with your class teacher(s). Some of the positives that have been commented on are the flexibility, convenience, confidentiality and timekeeping. The one thing lots of you have commented on that you missed was the opportunity to have a look at your child’s books and we totally understand your views on this. We are looking at various ways in which we might be able to share work with parents and, looking to the future, we will be resuming opportunities for Open Door to restart as soon as we are able to do so safely.
