On Wednesday, I watched the Inclusion Hub pupils show off their dance moves! It was lovely to see them enjoying performing to their families and the rest of the school. Yesterday, I was lucky enough to see all the year group dance performances – years three and four’s performances were around the theme of Tribal Tales (the history topics last half term) and in years five and six, they had a Mexican theme from the geography topic last half term. The progression through from the youngest to the oldest pupils was evident and we would like to thank Erika, our wonderful dance teacher, who has worked hard to choreograph the routines. Great to see so many parents/carers and families in school too!
Yesterday, I watched the choir practice and they are ready now to perform in the community. Mrs Osborne, our brilliant music teacher, has worked hard over the past twelve weeks during lunchbreak together with the children. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the Christmas Carols which were sung beautifully.
I really need to stress that it is not appropriate for adults to use the children’s toilets in school. This is because our pupils use these toilets both before and after school and there should not be adults in at the same time. This is for your protection too – we do need to safeguard our pupils and, of course, adults too.
PLAYGROUND AFTER SCHOOL
It has come to my notice that parents/carers and their children are staying on in the playgrounds to use the equipment and play football. The playgrounds should be vacated as soon as the children come out of school. From Monday, we will be closing all school gates at 3:30. Access to the school after 3:30 will be through the main gates and into reception.
As you may have noticed, we have a tv stand in the inner yard which should be properly up and running in the next few weeks. We will be adding pupil performances and green screen work from the Media Suite. It is also a very useful source of information for parents and carers.
Best wishes, Margaret Greig
