Newsletter - Friday 27th April, 2018

Headteacher: Mrs L Nicholls 

Dear Parents and Carers,

Diary Dates
Next week is the second week of the Big Pedal, so we are asking all pupils to continue to scoot and cycle to school everyday.
On Monday 30th April, Reception pupils will be participating in the Hungry Caterpillar story workshop.
On Tuesday 1st May we invite the parents and carers of pupils who are going on the Mersea residential trip to meet with Mrs Cocks. There are two meetings one at 2.30pm and another at 5.30pm. Hopefully, you will be able to attend one of these meetings.
We are looking forward to welcoming parents and carers of children in Pine class to their sharing assembly on Wednesday 2nd May. The choir pupils will be visiting Mead to rehearse for the Havering Music Festival with the choirs from cluster schools.
On Thursday 3rd May school is closed for pupils as the premises are being used as a polling station for local elections.
On Friday 5th some year 5 pupils will be participating in a cycling day with Phil Mylea.

Pupil Jobs and Homework Expectations
As it is a new term we thought it would be a good time to revisit our pupil, parents and staff expectations.
Pupils are expected to:
1. Turn up every day on time
2. Do their best in every lesson
3. Be kind and polite to everyone that they meet
Parents and carers are expected to:
1. Ensure that our children arrive on time for school and ready to learn:
a. We will have provided our children with a healthy breakfast
b. They will have warm clean clothing
c. We will make sure they have the right equipment for school (book bag, reading record, PE kit)
2.     We will support our children’s learning at home through:
a. Reading regularly
b. Helping them to practise their spellings and mental maths
c. Encouraging them in their interests
3.      We will model politeness and kindness to every-one we meet
We will ensure that our staff are professional, approachable and focused on making sure that every child in their care achieves their full potential. Working together,  we can continue to deliver outstanding results for our pupils so that they have every chance of going on to succeed at the next stage of their education.

All pupils are expected to continue their learning at home. For children in years 1-6 there are three core elements for this:
  1. Pupils must read every night for 15 mins (this may involve an adult reading them a bedtime story)
  2. Pupils must practise their spellings for 15 mins ready for the test on Friday
  3. Pupils must practise their times tables for 15 mins a night
In addition to this we have a Learning Challenge which is set by every Year group. This helps to give ideas on how the children can enrich their learning by looking at specific paintings, composers, poems and significant people. We would anticipate  that it takes around 4-6 weeks for your child to complete the activities. They choose to do this and can take on as many elements as they wish.

Shared mailboxes and communication
Don’t forget that you can contact staff using the shared mailboxes. They are checked daily and can be used to ask questions, pass on information or check details:

We are always happy to answer any questions you may have. I will be on the gate every morning for you to speak to in person. Most morning you will also be able to find Mrs Stanley, Mrs Ward, or Mrs Wallis to help you with any enquiries. If you would prefer an appointment please call into the office to fix a time.

After School Clubs
I am pleased to announce that after school clubs will start on Monday 30th April. Thank you to Mrs Chance and Mrs Charlesworth for all of the hard work that they put into organising the staff and pupils.  

Swap Shop - Thursday 24th May 3.00 - 4.00 pm
On Thursday 24th May 2018, we will be holding our first children’s clothing swap shop. A swap shop is a great way to help families support each other, whilst emptying your wardrobe of those unwanted items. Often children grow out of their clothes so quickly, that many parents/carers are left with perfectly good clothes with plenty of wear still in them.
If you have clothes to donate, then we will gratefully receive them from Monday 30th April. To help with the organisation we would appreciate it if clean clothes can be donated in bags, labelled with gender and size.
For hygiene reasons we are unable to accept stained or damaged clothes or underwear/swimwear.
Any clothes which we have left after the event will be donated to a local charity shop. Thank you for your continued support.
