Welcome back to school in January 2017
Dear Parents and Carers
Happy New Year – welcome back to the spring term, which is always a busy one. The children have settled down to work extremely well, we are very proud of them.
Our whole school assembly on Monday was based on: ‘Targets for 2017 and How Full Is Your Bucket?’ the concept that each of us has an invisible bucket; when our bucket is full, we feel great, when it’s empty, we feel awful. As we begin a new year we are encouraging the children to think about what positive things they can do and say daily to fill their own bucket or the bucket of someone else. (See website for the assembly presentation and story).
Things to look forward to next week…
Our School Council meet again on Monday; they will be coming up with suggestions for local charities that the children would like to support - a suggestion from parent forum. There is also a PTFA meeting from 6-7pm to plan future fundraising events for the children; if you can attend or offer your time and support please come along, any extra help is always appreciated. Thursday is ‘Favourite Dinner’ day, Mrs Croft will be delighting us all with a veritable feast and some children will be competing in a football tournament at Crewe Alex.
Thursday is also our next Parent Forum afternoon tea – join Mrs Hassall and myself from 2-3pm for refreshments and to share your views and plan opportunities to increase parental engagement over a cream scone or a flapjack.
You should receive a curriculum brochure home tonight to let you know what your child will be learning in the coming term.
Enjoy your weekend – there may even been enough snow to build a snowman…
