Community Litter Pick-Thursday
27th October 9.30 am
As part of our work in sustainability, we look forward to many of you joining us for our annual community litter pick which will be undertaken by all children in their houses. Spreading our ECO message into the local community is one of the areas we need to work on to achieve our second Green Flag, so please come and help us! We will send out further details nearer the time but please keep the date and time free if you can.
Learning Together Sessions
We will hold three Learning Together sessions this year where you will have the opportunity of coming into your child’s classroom to participate in their learning activities. These sessions will also have a particular theme to tie in with our school improvement priorities. These sessions are always a great opportunity for you to see what learning and teaching is like in action and if you can make it, the children are always so pleased to see you. If you are unable to attend maybe a grandparent, uncle, aunt or other family member could attend in your place?
Dates for the Learning Together Sessions are:
Thursday, 10th November at 14.30 Growth Mindset
Friday, 24th February at 11.30 Equalities
Friday, 2nd June at 11.30 ECO/Sustainability
We hope to see you there!
World of Work Week and Careers Fair 14th-18th November
We will be holding another World of Work Week and Careers Fair from 14th-18th November and will need your help in making it another great success. We want all our children to make that link as early as possible between their learning in school and the world of work and having parents and carers sharing their job and work experiences as well as our many community partners, is an incredibly powerful way of doing this. I will write to you next weekto ask you for your help-we are trying to get representation of a wide range of jobs to suit all our children’s interests so please do come forward if you can help. If you have friends or family members who would be interested in helping us we’d love to have them along too. As part of our equalities work, we would also be particularly interested in jobs that have traditionally/historically been done by either men or women so that we can challenge gender stereo-typing from an early age.
Looking further ahead, but again asking for your help, we will hold a STEM Week where children will participate in stimulating and motivating STEM activities, again with a focus on developing those skills for learning, life and work but also challenging any gender stereotyping in careers in these particular fields. More on this later but if you would be interested in helping us, please keep these dates in mind.
