Mrs Wood's latest book review
The Truth Pixie by Matt Haig
Another great stocking filler! This story is both hilarious and heartwarming. The book is great to read aloud as it is written in rhyme. The Truth Pixie cannot lie and can only says things that are true, this causes her a lot of problems and she loses lots of friends. The tale is about how one special pixie learned to love herself, the main themes are about being different and the power of friendship. As well as being a great story, the book is also illustrated by the brilliant Chris Mold. I would say this would appeal to children from Reception all the way up to Year 4.
From Monday 10th December, we will have the school Christmas 'post-box' in the entrance hall. In order to 'send' cards to other children across the school, children can post them in the box. Please ensure the recipient's first and last names (as well as which class they are in) is included on the envelope.
Green Week - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
We had a fantastic week last week focusing on our environment. Children across the school were involved in a range of activities to learn more about how to reduce waste, reuse items and recycle as much as possible. This included:
- looking at the food and packaging waste at lunchtime
- thinking about landfills and what could be recycled instead
- the introduction of the new clothes bank on the playground
- thinking about how waste can impact other creatures on our planet
It is fantastic to hear and see children across the school taking such an interest and trying to do their bit to help.
New Reception Class Admissions - Sept 2019
Do you have a child who is due to start school in September 2019? A reminder that deadlines for applications is 15th January 2019. Further information can be found at www.bristol.gov.uk/schooladmissions
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. The winning names for our School Houses 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 we are 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.
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.
