This was a lovely opportunity to bring together the parents of Year 1 for a chat and a chance to spend a bit of time with their child in school. It’s been a long time since we have been able to do this and we have really missed it! The children love to see their parents in school and to share a little of their day with them. As a school we really value parental engagement so thank you to all the parents who came in. Parental engagement is key to your child making good progress as it shows them you care and it lets the school know what it is doing well and what you as parents might like more of.
As you can see we have some budding bakers -watch out the Great British Bake Off! The children really enjoyed decorating their cakes and showing their parents how grown up they are in moving around the school so responsibly!
Year 3 have started their own drop in club on a Monday lunchtime where they can get crafty and creative! So far they have created amazing glitter pictures, chatterboxes and last week they made these beautiful rainbow clouds! The children love trying out new skills. Do you have any old art or creative materials at home that you are no longer using? Pieces of material or old beads and buttons would be especially welcome for our crafty box of goodies!
It was great to get some of the parents together again at last in the Community Hub to socialise and chat about how their children were settling into Reception Class. There was also an opportunity for the children to join them and decorate fairy cakes. As you can see there are some very creative little hands in Reception Class and the end results looked delicious!
Doing simple things together with your child is a lot of fun and provides important shared experiences that help you to understand and communicate with your child. Try and spend a little special time each week decorating cakes, colouring in or building things together.
