Dear Parents,

Thank you to the children who led our assembly this Wednesday on dance. We have some very talented children at school.

As I have walked round school this week I have seen some exciting learning going on. The older children are becoming fascinated by Brazil as they are studying its geography in preparation for its history. There is huge excitement in Harriers and computing club as Mr Holt is teaching them about green screen filming. Kites are showing a huge amount of interest as they learn more about Marie Curie, an important scientist they first heard about last year. The Ospreys are just excited about everything, they are loving their learning and are always keen to share it with me. Maths is really enthusing the Peregrines at the moment, they love being able to show how to solve problems with cubes, counters and other objects. Whilst the Kestrels are busy planning what they want to learn about dinosaurs – the roars coming from their area have been quite scary!

Yesterday I was doing some work with our Advisor from the local authority. It was a real pleasure to look at school through his eyes and see just how engaged in their learning your children are. They are excited by their learning and work with real purpose. He was very impressed by what they were learning and how they were learning.

Remember there is a meeting at Hayfield Primary School next week on Tuesday 4th February at 6.30 to help parents understand how maths is taught now. The aim is to help you be able to feel confident to support your children at home. Parking in Hayfield is not fantastic so I would recommend car sharing.

I hope your child has brought home their poems for House Verse Speaking and are starting to learn them.

Tomorrow 31st January Kites will be leading our assembly and on Friday 7th February it will be Harrier’s turn.

Also on Friday 7th February it will be the PTA disco 5-6.30. There is a flyer attached with more details.

There is a PTA meeting in school tonight at 7pm please come along if you can.
