Headteacher's Newsletter, Term 2 Week 4: 2nd February 2018

Posted 2/2/2018

"Thank you for your fantastic and generous donations for today’s non uniform day and donations for Cancer Research UK’s wrist bands for Sunday’s Cancer Day.

The children enjoyed having the Fire Service visit school on Wednesday both in assembly and to show the fire engine.

Next week we are very much looking forward to:

·         Saturn and Neptune’s school trip (Monday) Tropical World ,

·         Venus and Mercury visit to Read school to watch ‘Annie’ on Tuesday,

·         Miss Stafford’s and Saturn’s Learning assembly on Wednesday (all Saturn’s parents welcome for the assembly and learning party from 9.05am)

Staffing update:

·         We were sad to see Mrs Scott finish her long term cover with us this week, but welcome Mrs Petch to Neptune class.  We look forward to seeing Mrs Scott back with us on occasions, and already have her booked in the diary just after half term to support in school!

·         It was great to welcome Mrs Mackintosh back to school this week after her absence.

·         Continued love and best wishes to Mrs Pierce for a full and speedy recovery


Metacognition and ReflectED

Miss Stafford and I have really enjoyed learning more about Metacognition over the last few months and are delighted to announce that we have been chosen by Rosendale Research School in London, to work with Durham and York universities, as part of the ReflectEd project.  Miss Stafford and I enjoyed visiting Rosendale and learning more about this approach.

What is metacognition? Most simply, Metacognition is learning about our learning. As part of our approach to further improve our Teaching and Learning we are going to be teaching children about metacognition. More to follow over the next few weeks! We are very excited about this brilliant opportunity."
