Weekly Round up

We are back!

We hope all our families had a lovely week off school, and that you managed to rest and enjoy some time together.

As the nights grow dark, and the weather gets colder and wetter it has been amazing to see so many smiling faces at the door – and we have been delighted at how well learning has returned to our school.

Year Six students have started their reading and maths boosters, and have already shown the perfect attitudes towards revision; our new Christmas club has been hugely well received and enjoyed by all and classes are now beginning their new curriculum topic in art – so we are eagerly awaiting the inventive, individual and creative projects children will be working on in the next few weeks!

 Next week we are hosting parents evening, and we are very excited to share your child’s work with you, as well as have the time to discuss how they are getting on. If you cannot attend, or are yet to make an appointment please let the office know and they can make arrangements for you.

Class Round up

For the first week back we’re focusing on Year 5, Year 6 and class B4.

Year 5

We have had a really exciting week in Y5 this week. We have begun our new Art topic in our curriculum lessons.

This term we are looking at the work of the sculptor Andy Goldsworthy. He is famous for working with natural materials to create sculptures within a landscape.

We went outside to try it out for ourselves and we came up with some really interesting ideas! 

Year 6

Before the half term, Year Six visited Eden Camp.

We have been learning about World War II in our history lessons and once there we could go in the different themed huts.

We saw and learnt more about how the war started, the Blitz, rationing, streets at war and the U-boats. We had such an amazing day! 

B4

B4 have had a fantastic term.

MIMA has been a great experience where we explored various forms of art through the focus of Redcar beach.

This will be revisited as we enjoy art by Andy Goldsworthy where we will create natural sculptures in our environment.

We had a practiced of working with some of the materials which has been both fun and challenging. We loved the focus of looking at Scandinavia in Geography.

Attendance

Each week we have an ‘Awesome Attendance’ competition for the class or classes with the highest attendance. The class with the highest attendance will receive a letter and the first class to spell out ‘Awesome’ receives a treat for the whole class.

Which class will be the first to receive that treat?

100% Attendance

This week we had 215 children who achieved 100% Attendance for this week. A huge WELL DONE to you all 😊

Can you get 100% next week?

Missed Appointments

We strive to accommodate parents/carers with appointment times within the academy.

Unfortunately we have noticed that many appointments have been missed, occasionally this may be due to unforeseen circumstances.

If you have to cancel and/or re-arrange your appointment, please ensure you contact the academy as soon as possible.

Failing to turn up for an appointment and not contacting the academy to cancel it has an adverse effect on other parents/carers appointment times. This can also take valuable staff time that could have been utilised by other parents.

Diary Dates and Reminders

Lunch Menu

Our lunches are provided on a 3 week rota. Choices next week will be Week 2.
