Mrs Wood's latest book review
Secrets of a Sun King by Emma Carroll
This brilliant book only came out a couple of months ago and has already been nominated, shortlisted and won several book awards.
Set in London 1922, Lilian finds a parcel on her grandad’s doorstep sent by a famous Egyptologist, who was found dead that very morning, under mysterious circumstances. It holds a key to a story about a king whose tomb archaeologists are desperately searching for. Lilian and her friends embark on an incredible journey to return the package to its resting place, to protect those they love and to break the deadly pharaoh’s curse.
Emma Carroll writes great books set in different historical periods (Year 6 are currently reading Letters from the Lighthouse, set during World War 2).
This book is a great adventure story that will keep you gripped from start to finish. I would recommend it to children in Years 4, 5 and 6.
Year 7 Admissions
We have arranged for a representative from the Local Authority's admission team to visit on Wednesday 26th September to speak to Year 6 parents. The meeting will help parents with the admission arrangements as they apply for Year 7 places for September. The meeting is at 2.45pm - 3.15pm in the school hall.
New House Names
It was time this year, for the children across the school, to choose new names for our houses. All classes had the opportunity to suggest potential names and then to vote for their favourite. In our Celebration Worship on Friday last week, we announced the winning names for our School Houses which are:
RED - Ruby House
GREEN - Emerald House
YELLOW - Amber House
BLUE - Sapphire House
All children are in a house and have the opportunity of earning house points every day and also at regular special house events. Staff are also in houses with the exception of Mr Barlow (who runs the special house events) and Mrs McMahon as they need to remain impartial!
To help celebrate the launch of the new house names, children (and staff) are invited to come to school wearing a t-shirt in their new house colours on Friday 21st September. In addition, we are also introducing the opportunity for children to wear a t-shirt in their house colours for PE lessons. This is optional, and if you have invested in white t-shirts for PE, children can continue to wear these.
Open days for new Reception starters in September
Parents and carers are invited to the following Open Days:
- Thursday 18th September - 11.30am
- Friday 21st September - 9.30am
- Tuesday 2nd October - 1.30pm
If you would like to attend any of these dates please contact the school office on 0117 9030280 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a place.
Medical and permission forms
Thank you to all the families who have returned the medical and permission forms sent home last week. These are really important to ensure the information we hold on your child is current and up to date. Please return any outstanding forms by Friday 14th September.
Do you, or a family member, have some spare time during the school day? We are looking for some more volunteers to come in and hear children read throughout the school. Reading is such an important skill and providing the chance to read to someone else is great for the children and can help to develop their reading abilities. If you are able to help, please let your class teacher know. Mrs McAndrew, our Reading Lead, will be running sessions for all volunteers over the next couple of weeks. All help is greatly appreciated by the children and staff. In line with our Safeguarding policy, all regular volunteers will be subject to a DBS check.
Water bottle and healthy snacks
Children are encouraged to bring in a small bottle of drinking water. Bottles should be named and taken home each day. Children in Nursery, Reception and Key Stage One receive a daily piece of fruit as part of the government scheme. Children in Key Stage Two are welcome to bring in a healthy snack to eat at playtime. This should be a healthy snack - preferably fruit. Thank you for your support.
