Reading Rewards

Reading Rewards recognise successful Summer Reading Challenge!

It was great this morning to see the Norfolk Library Service visit to reward and recognise those children for successfully completing the Summer Reading Challenge during the holidays.  Lots of badges and certificates were given out and smiles could be seen all around. 

Our priority plans for improvement over the course of this year are being discussed and generated and I am thrilled that we have lots of positive things to look forward to over the coming months. Further training opportunities have been arranged for staff to upskill themselves and we hope new staff can be appointed in the near future to support our pupils even more.

I was especially pleased to see how the new Reception children have been settling, despite it only being the end of week two, allowing Mrs. Allen the time to begin the Reception Baseline Assessments. The Reception team have been superstars for all the pupils and I am thrilled with the job they have been doing and will continue to do.  

During this week and next, I have had and will continue to have the pleasure of visiting classrooms to see how teachers are getting on and find out even more about how pupils are learning. 

Yesterday, I had a fantastic meeting with some of our parents, who are willing to form our new PTFA. I am really pleased about this because it means that a programme of meaningful fundraising can be reimplemented. We are looking forward to discos, fayres and midweek movies to name but a few things that are popular. 

Next week, we have our Kittle individual and school sibling photos on Tuesday and on Wednesday the Reception class have their heights and weights being checked. On Friday, we have our Macmillan Cake sale for a worthy cause in the morning from 8:30-9:15am and further sales can be made at the end of the day, so let us hope we can raise as much money as possible. 

Have a great weekend everyone!
