‘Working Together, Putting Children First within our Christian family'           

  

 

Dear Parents/Carers,

 

Attendance

 

Whole school attendance for this week is 2.51% down on last week.

 

Headteacher's Award – Farrah – ‘Super behaviour and table manners in the dining hall’

 

Lunchtime Award – Logan – ‘Really tried hard to sit and concentrate at lunchtime this week’

 

Star of the week Play School – Blake – ‘For increasing independence

 

Star of the week Class 1 – Riley A – ‘Fantastic effort and attitude in class’

 

Star of the week Class 2 – Freddie – ‘improved attitude to learning’

 

This has been a long but hard working term and with a bit of luck we have seen the worse of our winter weather. I have been impressed with the attitude of the children towards our new way of engaging everyone in reading. It has been a pleasure to see them improve so much in a short space of time. Once again our two schools have taken part in plenty of sporting activity and done so with a growing confidence. As the weather turns more spring like I do hope that we utilise the lovely surroundings that we live and work in and start to develop our forest school ethos. Have a lovely break and enjoy the rest.

Class 1 Science

 

In Class 1 we have been looking at climate change in science this term. The children have been learning about how greenhouse gases are effecting our environment and the animals that live in it. We looked this week at the polar bears that have been invading a town in Russia because the ice that they have been living on has melted! The children decided that they needed to write letters to a range of different people (including the Queen!) and tell, them about the effect of climate change and how we can help our world and the animals in it survive. Take a look at what they have written in the attachments.

Swine flu

 

We have had a confirmed case of swine flu in the school community, advice from the NHS as follows. The swine flu virus is now one of the seasonal flu viruses that circulate each winter. If you've had flu in the last few years, there's a chance it was caused by this virus. As many people now have some level of immunity to the swine flu virus, it's much less of a concern than in 2009-10. The symptoms are the same as normal flu – they're usually mild and pass within a week or so. But as with all types of flu, some people – particularly those with underlying health problems – are at higher risk of serious illness. The regular flu vaccine will normally protect people at a higher risk of becoming severely ill. https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/swine-flu/

Well done to the Sherburn school tag rugby team who represented the Wolds and Vale federation on Wednesday evening, a great performance against some tough opposition. Thank you to parent volunteers and staff who transported children.
