Welcome back to Term 4!

We are only one week in and already busy working on our new theme! 

Term 4’s Theme is ‘Rivers and Oceans’

This theme will run for two terms and we have lots planned! We have already found out some interesting facts about the ocean and the creatures that live in it.  We have lots of artwork planned based on the ocean.  We will be finding out about what it was like to sail on the sea and some old sea shanties.

RE - This term in our assemblies we will be covering:  Mardi Gras / Shrove Tuesday, Magha Puja/Sangha Day, World book day, Ramadan, Holi and Easter.

RSE - We will be covering the area of “Relationships.”  We will focus particularly on relationships with important people in our life and friendships.  Please do let me know if you want any more details or have any questions.

We will be mainly focusing on chocolate (one of my favourite topics!). We are hoping to borrow ‘The history of chocolate’ resources from the museum and cover the story ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’.  We will also be attempting some crazy cooking and making some potions based on revolting recipes and George’s marvellous medicine. 

Swimming and Rebound

Please send in swimming kits on a Monday morning and we will aim to swim on a Tuesday, but will be able to swim on a different day if this is not possible - increasing our chances of weekly hydro.  We will send kits home when they have been used unless requested otherwise by you.

Please continue to send in two large towels, tegaderm and shampoo and shower gel as well as swimming costumes. 

COULD YOU PLEASE PROVIDE A WATERPROOF BAG/CARRIER TO PUT WET COSTUMES AND TOWELS IN.

Home-school contact

Please use the home-school diary or email me with any questions and updates.  It would be useful to know if your child has any upcoming appointments, is out of sorts, has had any additional medications (e.g. paracetamol/antibiotics) etc.

If you need to speak to us urgently, please phone the Redland Campus office. {0117 3533450}

If your child is going to be absent for any reason, we really appreciate an early morning phone call to the office by 8.30am and a message left on the answering machine, as this greatly helps us plan our staffing.

Reminder of what’s needed in school

  • Change of clothes kept in school, useful for any messy days.
  • A supply of pads, wet wipes and creams if needed. (We will write in your diary if these are running low.)
  • Emergency medication and spare buttons as well as any daily medication as well as occasional medication (e.g. paracetamol) - Please check medication and button dates.
  • Snacks and squash if your child needs these.
  • Clothes that are appropriate for the weather, especially during outdoor learning sessions.
  • Blanket to go over laps when the weather is really cold.

Earwig

Please let me know if you are still having issues accessing Earwig.

We will continue to add photos and comments about what your child is getting up to at school.

Please note - we do a lot more than we can possibly share and will do our best to keep you informed.

If you have any issues accessing Earwig please do let us know.  Please continue to make use of the extra feature where you can send us photos, comments or videos of what your child has been doing at home - This is lovely for your child to see and share with Staff. 

Notices:

  • Some of you may be aware that we have recently had a new pupil join S2. Welcome to Shawn who has settled in well over the last term.
  • If you have any carrier bags that you do not need then please consider donating them to school - we do get through a lot of them.
  • If your child is unwell please do not send them into school as we do not want illnesses spreading, and you are not sure if you should send them in please contact the school to ask.
