Year One learn about Ramadan


The year one children were treated to a very special assembly this morning.  Maryam's mum and Samir's mum came into school to share their knowledge of Ramadan and Eid, which are important events in the Islamic calendar.  The children learnt about why Muslims fast, say special prayers, spend more time reading the Quran and help those less fortunate than themselves.  The children asked some interesting questions and also got to try dates (which Muslim's eat to break their fast).  The children really enjoyed learning about Islam and sat beautifully throughout the assembly. 

Well Done Jacob

Jacob is this weeks winner of the E for Excellence certificate for Malta Class. Well done.

Weekly Newsletter 30/04/2021

Dear Parents and Carers,

Below are some awards that we would like to share with you and some important information that you should be aware of.

Bank Holiday - Monday 3rd May
Please don’t come to school on Monday as we are closed! We reopen as usual on Tuesday 4th May.

Children who have been loaned a school Chromebook should bring them back to school on a Monday, Wednesday or Friday. These were originally issued to support with the enforced full school closure and bubble closures; I hope that the recent weeks of non-bubble closures are here to stay now.

Polling Day - Thursday 6th May
The children do not need to come to school on this day and work will be set on Google Classroom. If either parent is a Key Worker or your child is considered to be vulnerable, places are available for children to come to school to complete their Google Classroom learning. A few key points to note:
Breakfast Club will not open on this day as the school kitchen is closed.
Any child staying at school on this day must have a packed lunch.
Please complete the Google form ASAP to secure a place.

School will reopen to all children on Friday 7th May.

Mystery Friday Phone call!
Starting next week, class teachers will be making a mystery phone call to a parent whose child has enjoyed a great week at school. This may be for an academic or non-academic reason and will be a surprise to both you and your child - they will not be told in advance! We introduced this in Y6 a couple of months ago and the feedback from the children, parents and staff has been really positive.

Bikes and Scooters
We advise that children who bring bikes/scooters to school have a simple locking mechanism they can use to secure their bike/scooter to a school stand. This keeps the bike/scooter safe and also ensures that no one takes home the wrong bike/scooter. This may have been the case in Y4 this week; can I ask Y4 parents to check their child has the correct scooter. Thank you.

Attendance for this week is 95.5% which is a little disappointing, especially after last week’s fantastic 97%. However, I would like to congratulate Palau and Malta who both achieved 100% this week. They will both have a cupcake party to celebrate their fantastic achievement.

Star Writers
These children have used a range of powerful vocabulary and techniques to become a Star Writer. Well done to Emilia (Palau),Alannah (Kenya), Izampela (Egypt), Keeley (Madagascar), Anabella and Jeremiah (Barbados), Oguzcan (St Lucia) Min (Antigua), David A (Scotland), Rubi (Australia), Domas (New Zealand), Seiar (Northern Ireland) Jokubas (Wales), Stephanie (Jamaica), Evie (Germany), Tomi (Brazil), Nathan (Greece), Jesse (USA), Wadi(Italy), Jason (Chile), Reuben (Canada), Lena (Mexico) and Wajeeha(Argentina). Look out for examples of their work on the blog!

Congratulations to these children who have demonstrated one of our four learning skills.
