Mrs Davies’ weekly blog: November 11

Welcome back to a new half term… the Christmas one!

Our children should have brought home their first report on Friday. This is designed to be brief but informative and give results of any standardised assessments carried out last half term as well as individual-specific targets that parents can help with and a general comment about how they have settled at school.

This week we have seen Year 4 go on a Religious Studies visit to St Asaph Cathedral where they learnt all about its fabulous history and listened to an organ demonstration.

We held extra forest school sessions for Year 6 and Year 3 and we have had football, mixed hockey and girls hockey fixtures.

New topics have also started across the curriculum with some super impressive science projects being brought in by Year 4. Well done everybody!

Important things to note:

  • Children in Need – Fun Fifties day! Please save 50 pence pieces for our School Council led day. It is the 15th November. The pupils will not dress up but can wear Pudsey ears. We really need your support to collect those elusive 50p coins!
  • Our new Prep Medical Room is up and running and Mrs Edwards, our nursing assistant is on hand to provide any first aid required. Please ask to speak with her if you have any medical concerns regarding your child in school.
  • Next week an Italian primary school group of 22 pupils will be attending classes in the Prep School on three days. We hope this integration will have benefits for both their pupils and ours.
  • We are still looking for parent volunteers to help run our annual book fair. This is running from Thursday 14th November to Wednesday 20th November. Please let the office know if you can do a morning or afternoon slot. Thanks in advance.
