This term all of the children in school will be using high quality texts to support them in their learning . I’m certain that these carefully selected books will engage all of the children and will give a clear direction to their learning allowing them to make good progress in all areas of the curriculum.

Last academic year the children all made very good progress with their reading and this is due to the fantastic support you give at home in encouraging your child to follow the Homework Policy and read at home at least 4 times a week and in joining your child for Reading Morning every Tuesday. They also made very good progress with their writing and maths along will all of the other curriculum areas studied in school.

We are currently learning about the school rules and good learning behaviour from our ‘Good Learning Team’. The team comprises of eight Disney characters and each one represents a different learning behaviour. The children have explored these behaviours so they know exactly what each one looks like if you are doing it properly. The characters and their learning behaviour are as follows:-

  • Mickey Mouse – ‘be curious’
  • Minnie Mouse – ‘concentrate’
  • Woody – ‘don’t give up’
  • Jessie – ‘be co-operative’
  • Tigger – ‘enjoy learning’
  • Eeyore – ‘have a go’
  • Winnie the Pooh – ‘keep improving’
  • Piglet – ‘use your imagination’

Our School Rules are:-

  • We are kind and polite to everyone
  • We allow everyone to try their best
  • We do as we are asked, by the adults in school, first time
  • We keep our hands, feet and objects to ourselves
  • We take care of everything in school
  • We all help to keep our school tidy
  • We walk inside school at all times

Our School Motto which underpins all of this work is ‘Helping each other towards excellence in all that we do’.

As part of our collaboration with Beeston Rylands Junior School I will be working very closely with children, staff and governors to develop a continuum of education from 3-11 years; an education that encourages  every child to reach their potential both academically and socially while at the same time enjoying their learning. Additionally we have also joined the George Spencer Teaching School Alliance to enhance our professional development we offer to staff and extend the number of schools we are working with.
