The children have had such a busy week! It began with Chloe and Aimee leading our Collective Worship on Monday which the children were all engaged with and they enjoyed having other children taking the lead.
On Tuesday Goldfinch had a wonderful day at the Natural History Museum which has inspired both learning and play. Mrs Wirth has complimented the children on their focus and questioning and I am pleased it was such a success. As we were visiting London, extra risk assessments were followed which included the children wearing a wrist band with the school details on. I would like to make you aware that Jake’s Play barn (Trilakes) provided us with 34 wrist bands which was both kind and supportive of them.
Whilst Goldfinch were learning about dinosaurs, Chaffinch were experiencing a swimming survival session in their clothes. I was delighted to be able to go with them and see them having such fun whilst learning such valuable life skills. Thank you Jill Anders for your help this week with swimming.
The momentum continued with many parents attending the Goldfinch Learning Event; the children loved sharing their learning and it was great to see lots of parents. I was busy carrying out the Phonics Screening with the Year 1 children in Rosefinch and Bullfinch. They have all worked very hard and seeing the progress the children have made was great. Again this year, support from parents has been invaluable. The children enjoyed the Phonics check and had no idea that it was any different to the normal work we do. Well done to all of them.
We are all very much looking forward to the Village Fete; it will be a fantastic community event and I am sure I will see many of you there (Saturday 11-4pm).
