Sun is shining!

Weather takes a turn for the better...finally and the field is back in use!

It has been fantastic to see the children utilising the outdoor spaces more regularly as the sun shining brightly has allowed the learning to go al fresco. Staff have some twilight training coming up soon, which will undoubtedly give them broader ideas on how to use learning through landscapes more effectively. Let us hope the weather lasts for half-term, so the Aviva voluntary team can visit again and carry out some maintenance tasks for us. 

The PTFA are looking forward to informing you that they are going to be using the monies raised to obtain new playground markings at each school across three separate playground spaces. The Federation will also support with the financial outlays for this. Having met with three companies and given the children's choices and ideas to them, they have mocked up some aerial designs and Governors will then support the most reliable and cost effective company. I have no doubt they will all look amazing when they are finished. 

I have enjoyed going around the school dropping into lessons to see how pupils' resilience and growth mindset are being portrayed. Do they persevere when the going gets tough or do they simply disengage or seek help straight away without even trying independently? I was very impressed with how determined children were across all ages. Long may this last.  

Next week on Tuesday, we have our Year 2 children travelling to Fairhaven to support their learning on plants and minibeasts from their Into the Woods topic. There is also a Maths Workshop being offered to Year 1 and their parents on Thursday.  On Friday, all of Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2) are off to Rollesby for free to see a Circus show. 

Have a lovely weekend everyone!
