Weekly Round up

Dear parents and children,

At the end of last week I worked with a group of 10 volunteers from Years 4 and 5 on our new Helping Hands scheme. This is something which was created after our older children told us that they would like to help other children at playtimes. During the training we discussed the children’s role and how they would respond to different situations. This provoked a lot of useful discussion and I must say that I was impressed with how sensible the children were.
This week I have been carrying out a reading survey. This aims to find out what our children like about reading and whether they have any ideas on how we can promote the importance of reading regularly. I will share the results with you next week.

Weekly Round up

Dear parents and children,

This week Year 2 have been learning how to write instructions and in particular how to make a banana milkshake. I have visited the FS 1 “hairdressing salon” and had my hair combed, sprayed and even put into rollers! Year 3 and 4 paid a visit to the Bielefeld Kunsthalle and enjoyed looking at the displays as well as creating their own.

This week Miss Graham and I looked at how well children have been doing with their AR quizzes. In next week’s team point assembly we will be awarding badges to any child who has maintained an average of 85% correct responses. So get quizzing children!

Who am I?


I was the first person to study the sky with a telescope.  This led to discovering Jupiter’s moons; the rings of Saturn; seeing that our moon has mountains and that stars made up the Milky Way.

What country am I from?
