Our outstanding school
I hope you've had an enjoyable Easter break and are all keen to get back to school. Please find attached the newsletter and homework options for this term.
A huge thank you to all the people who donated books to our Bring and Buy sale. The children loved looking through and choosing books. Younger readers were ably advised by the older children to help in their choice. We managed to raise over £75 (a phenomenal amount) to buy guided reading sets to keep us in the top 1% of the country for reading.
Spare books are going to be taken to a local children's charity.
We kicked off our new topic with a village walk looking at the different types of stone used in Appleton Roebuck. The children stayed cheerful despite the drizzle..
Attached is the homework for this term. Children can choose any two pieces to complete. The first is due on the 9th March and the final piece is due on the 23rd March. Homework books will be coming home today and due in on Fridays as normal. Thank you.
Meet our Junior Road Safety Officers whom I'm sure many of you have already encountered at the end of the school day. They will be checking that visitors are closing the gate, any children (and adults) will be dismounting bikes and scooters when on the school grounds and generally ensuring our pupils are kept safe. I'm sure you'll agree that they're doing a great job and are rightly proud of the responsibility that comes with the role.
The children have investigated how Vikings would have used natural dyes to colour their cloth. After collecting ingredients from the orchard, the children explored which dyes worked best before agreeing on the most successful. Groups have dyed lengths of string which will be made into jewellery to be 'sold' at our Trade Fair on Friday.
