Greek Dress Up Day

Friday 7th June

On Friday 7th June, Year 3 will be having a Greek Dress Up Day as part of our hook to our new topic 'Groovy Greeks'.

It is optional for your child to dress up.

If your child does decide to dress up, please keep this costume handy as they will have a second chance to wear it for our workshop later in the half term.

 

 

Sun Safety 

Now that the warm weather has arrived, we need to ensure sun safety. 

 

Please provide your child with a named sun hat and ensure that they have a named plastic water bottle (with sports cap opening). 

 

If your child requires sun cream, please ensure they apply it before school. If you wish them to reapply sun cream before breaktimes, lunchtimes or outdoor PE, please provide them with a named bottle. Staff are not allowed to apply sun cream to children, so please ensure that your child can apply it themselves.

Children’s Mental Health Week

 

This week, the children have enjoyed celebrating children's mental health week. The theme for this year has been 'My Voice Matters'. The children enjoyed sharing their likes and dislikes and came up with their dream day. We reminded the children to use our pupil voice groups, like the School Council, to ensure that their voices are listened to at school. 

Young Artists' Summer Show

The Young Artists’ Summer Show is a wonderful opportunity for UK-based artists and schools to engage creatively in the making and sharing of a piece of artwork that truly expresses their own voice. 

 

For a chance to exhibit your work at the Royal Academy of Arts both online and onsite, please read the follow guidance and attachments.  

 

There is no theme and artists aged 4-19 can submit a wide range of works which may include drawing, painting, printing, photography, sculpture, textile, fashion, animation, video, or surprise us!

 

You are required to complete the permissions form which must be attached for us to be able to submit your child's work. 

 

The art work must be completed independently by your child. 

 

Each submission can include a short artist statement ideally by the child. 

 

Please can all art works, that wish to be submitted, be returned to the school office by  Wednesday 20th March. 

 

Happy Creating!

To Parents and Carers,

 

We have become aware of a large number of children wearing scarves during the Winter months. Unfortunately these pose a safety risk to our children - a choking risk-  and therefore we will not be allowing children to wear these to school. Coats can be zipped up fully to keep children warm. 

 

We hope that you understand why this has been necessary and support the School to keep our children safe.

 

Many thanks, 

Miss Guy

World Mental Health Day

 

Today, we have celebrated World Mental Health Day. The theme of the day has been 'Mental Health is a universal right' and the children have completed a range of activities to help them to understand this. We focused on the idea of being kind, not only to others, but to yourself too. 

 

The children played kindness bingo throughout the day which included things such as 'say hello to someone new' and 'write down 3 things you love about you.' All of the children finished the day by writing themselves a kindness postcard, remembering a time where they had done something great.
