Halloween Headteacher Update

Good afternoon…and that’s one week done!
Another busy one with lots of hard work and learning taking place, (despite the effects of all the sugar from Halloween!).

My favourite activity this week was from Opal class who went down to the beach to work out just how big the Titanic was! Wow, maths in action!

I am also enjoying seeing the children learn the Charleston as part of our History work around WW1. Great moves! Don’t forget dressing up day Monday 12th, costumes of the era or something red or poppy related.
We have Royal British Legion charity products, including poppies, on sale in the main school office.

I mentioned last week about having a bench built for the children to sit on and change their shoes into trainers therefore enabling them to play on the field at lunchtime. A very generous grandparent has offered to make this for us. Thank you. Just to be clear about the trainers…
• It’s for years 3-6 at the moment
• They can be the child’s out door PE trainers. (Not Plimsolls)
• They should be in a carrier bag. (Not just the PE bag)
Also, with regards to uniform, leggings are not acceptable and shouldn’t be worn as a substitute for trousers.

I have placed an advert for a Teaching Assistant on Kent Teach https://www.kent-teach.com/Recruitment/Vacancy/VacancyDetails.aspx?VacancyId=67332 Should you be interested please apply via this site.

We will be welcoming Mrs Lucy Doherty to our teaching team on Monday 5th November. She will be taking over class responsibility for Onyx class from Mrs Nesbitt who will start her maternity leave after Christmas.

I hope you have an enjoyable weekend.

Best wishes
Nicola Wood
