School disco

We have a wonderful time at the school discos last night and the children showed off some dance moves I wouldn’t be able to do in a million years. all the children were collected on time and my thanks go to the staff who stayed behind to supervise the disco in your own time; I appreciate it!

One point was made obvious to us though. We will be banning children from bringing any phones to any future discos. We were not aware that there were children there recording and photographing the event which sounds very innocent but we do have children whose image cannot be shared on any type of social media.

Some children have apps on their phone that are not allowed for primary age children and were sharing these images. If you know that your child has any of these apps or has photos or films from last night, please delete them or call into school with the phone and we can do it for you.

For this reason (amongst many others) we ask that no phones come to school.

Healthy challenge

Last Friday the children came home with a piece of paper with green trees all around it. On it was a challenge for the kids to try up to 6 things to improve their health. This can be a small bit of exercise , a bit of healthy eating or a piece of mindfulness.

They don’t have to do 6, any attempt would be great. The closing date for bringing their entry back is Monday 8th April and their are prizes for any family who has a go.

If your child has lost theirs and you’d like another, please pop into school or you may be able to download it here?

We came third!!!  We are super proud as it was the first time they’d played as a school team. Let’s hope England play as well as our champs tonight!!

Thanks for the games and puzzles!

Thank you so much to all of you who have donated games and puzzles to school. The kids have loved using them at lunch and during Breakfast buddies and it really warms the heart to see them playing TOGETHER and chatting away while they are having fun. #bantheelectronics!

I have introduced them to The Flintstones cartoons of my childhood this morning and they’d never heard of them…..shocking parenting out there!! :)

Science day in 3C

A week ago today we had our super science day. From walking water to static electricity and finishing off with making marble runs – the day was an absolute blast!!!

A huge thank you to the lovely parents who came in; the children loved it.

Here’s a snippet of our fun-filled day…

Please help if you can….

 

Do you have children aged between 4 and 16?

I am completing some research about the experiences you have of your children’s eating behaviours, mealtimes and technology use. If you are interested in taking part then please either comment on this post or send me a message directly and I will be happy to provide you with further information.

If you know of someone who may be interested in taking part in this study then please share this post or tag them so they can contact me directly.

Thanks in advance and I look forward to hearing from you.

A shout out to our sponsors….

Breakfast Buddies is up and running and providing that smooth start to the day for lots of our children. This wouldn’t happen though without the kindness of some of our wonderful parents who have given us donations from large cheques to fruit, boxes of cereals and also milk.

They should be thanked out loud so…… THANK YOU to

These are the sorts of people that we hold up as an example to our children of doing their bit to help others. What a fantastic community we have!
