Head Teacher's Blog
Wow, what a great night we had on Friday at the Lanes Fest. Thank you so much for supporting us and coming along – I think it was just what we all needed. Thank you also to the staff who stayed behind and served at the bar, sold headbands, etc. I hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did – and it didn’t rain!!
Events like Friday night are so important as we try to build back the sense of community in school. For me it is what a primary school should be about; community, family and people. Hopefully, it is just the start to a great year with more events – watch this space.
This week the Reception children will complete their first full week at school. They have settled in so well and are enjoying playing together and getting to know each other.
The rest of the children are also continuing to work hard and enjoying getting to know their new classes and teachers. We have all been so impressed with how they have come back to school – it is going to be a good year!
Hello everyone and welcome to the first Head teacher’s blog on our new look website. I will update the blog on a weekly basis and I hope that it will give you a flavour of what is going on at school.
It has been SO lovely to welcome everyone back to school this week. School feels so vibrant and alive and the children have been brilliant. They have settled in so well and are adapting to our new routines and procedures. We also welcomed our new Reception children today for their first ‘Stay and Play’ session.
We have been using the book ‘Ish’ by Peter H Reynolds with the children this week and will be continuing next week. This book Ish by Peter H Reynolds. Ish i
The book is really simple but the message is powerful – negativity and criticism can destroy confidence and creativity and perfectionism is unhealthy too. Praise and encouragement helps us learn!
We have also been doing lots of other work and settling into new routines in our classes. The children have also been talking about our motto and values for this half term which are Teamwork and Resilience.
The teachers will be in touch again soon. The topic webs and weekly newsletters will be on the website in the Year group pages next week.
Don’t forget The Lanes Festival next Friday – 6 -8pm on the Cator Lane field. We are really hoping that this can go ahead and we are keeping an eye on the weather forecast. It would be lovely to see lots of you there to celebrate the start of a new school year. More details will come to you next week.
Take care and have a lovely weekend.
