Dear Parents and carers,
This week the whole school spent some time learning about Rosa Parks, a key historical figure who is also referred to as ‘The First Lady of Civil Rights” or “The mother of the Freedom Movement”. The children showcased their learning in a variety of ways, in EYFS and Key Stage 1 the children drew portraits, described Rosa Parks using adjectives and wrote character descriptions. In Key stage 2 they wrote biographies and constructed information presentations in different forms.
The children also learned about on-line safety, they had conversations around their experiences on line, how often they use the internet and what sites, games and apps they are using. One of the key issues we found in Upper Key Stage 2 which raises concerns is children having access to their phones throughout the night and taking them to bed with them. The reason they gave was because they needed access to the alarm. Parents and carers, my advise, take away the phone and purchase an alarm clock, please.
Thank you to all the children and parents for supporting the children with reading. The children raised £790.32 for the school to purchase new books for the Key Stage 2 Library. A special thank you to Isi, Miss Munday and Miss Link for running the book fair during school and out of hours.
I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Mr Mbanga who has been promoted to Deputy Headteacher. Mr Mbanga will continue with his role as SENCO, Designated safeguarding lead and head of Pastoral and Inclusion.
Have a lovely weekend.
