Head of School update

It’s been a RED kind of a day this Friday!!

This week we have welcomed our parents to classes for Book Looks and the children have been so proud to share their achievements with you! Thank you to everyone who came in.  We have also had an event in our Farthing Wood Reception class with lots of parents joining in and being creative with their biscuit decorating.  Year 5 had the opportunity to see a performance of Matilda at Cromer Academy and next week  Year 5 and 6 will be watching Sister Act at North Walsham High. Friday saw us all enjoying a fun day wearing red as we supported Red Nose Day in school. Thank you for all your support. It really makes a difference.  We will let you know the outcome of our fundraising and how much we have raised for Comic Relief. 

Behaviour workshop – this week a number of parents joined us for a session with the schools and community team looking at child behaviour and parenting tips. There was some great sharing of experiences and it was obvious that we all experienced the same questions!  We all received some homework to try out and are looking forward to seeing how it went at the next session. 

PTFA Book Fair – Next week we will be showcasing the ever popular PTFA Book Fair. There will be lots of books on offer at competitive prices, please checkout the letter for details (on the website and in your inbox) or contact the office for more information.

Phonics Workshop – Please join us to learn about what your child learns every day!  We are hosting a workshop open to all parents to share how we teach Phonics to your child. We know that teaching methods have changed since our parents attended school and this is intended to be a fun interactive session to help you understand what your child learns every day. We would love to see as many parents there as possible. Check out the posters and let the school office know if you can attend. 

Easter Colouring Competition – Please ensure you write your child’s name and class on the back of their entry form. All entries must be handed in by Friday 22nd March 2024.

School Uniform – The next order cut off is 26th April 2024.

Class Photos – Will be taking place on Thursday 28th March – Children with PE on this day are asked to arrive in their uniform and to bring their PE Kit in a named bag.
