Welcome back to another exciting academic year. The children have come back to school ready and eager to learn. It has been wonderful to hear all about their holiday adventures over the six-week break.
Below is a detailed list of information that should help you all to be well equipped and fully prepared for the new term.
This year we will be using a new online learning journey called Tapestry to observe and assess the children in class. The foundation stage very much works on parental co-operation and we really value the contributions that are uploaded onto the site as it helps to build a complete picture of your child. If you require any more information please do ask. We shall also be continuing with our paper journals, which you can view and add to at any time throughout the year.
At Sigglesthorne Church of England Primary Academy we want to celebrate all of our pupils achievements, both in and out of school. Please encourage your child to share all of their out of school achievements. This could be in the form of a swimming certificate, achievement award for any sporting or dance activity, or anything else that they have had success with outside of school. This can then be displayed on our “Amazing Me” board within the foundation area.
We hold a celebration assembly every Friday at 09:05, where children are rewarded for good work and achievement. Please come along and have a cup of tea or a coffee, chat to fellow parents and celebrate our children’s achievements.
Books will be changed once they have been read at home and the reading record signed however on occasion books will be sent home over more than one night. Re-reading a book has lots of benefits as we work on both fluency and comprehension to ensure the children have a whole rounded approach to reading. As a school we aim for our children to read at least four times per week.
The children will be provided with a daily snack of milk and fruit. We ask that they bring in a water bottle from home each day so that they can have a drink of water throughout the day.
Everyone has come back to school looking incredibly smart in their new uniforms. Please can you make sure all items of clothing are named, this helps us to quickly return anything that is lost to the owner.
In foundation we love to explore our classroom and outdoor area, this means that we sometimes get a little bit messy. We have a very limited supply of spare clothes so it is very helpful for each child to have a spare set of clothes hung up on their peg.
Please advise us if someone else is picking up your child either by phoning the office, writing a letter or telling your child’s teacher. This helps to avoid unnecessary upset at the end of the day.
Please keep an eye on our notice board for any daily information.
The school run both a breakfast club and after school club. If you would like your child to attend either, please book them in at the office with Mrs Conlon.
When the children are in full time education (FS2) they are entitled to free school meals until the end of year 2. Please see Mrs Conlon for further information.
Thank you for your support. We believe that communication is key to your child’s success as well as a great teacher and parent/carer relationship. Please don’t hesitate to contact a member of the school if you have any questions or concerns. Looking forward to a wonderful year of learning.
Mrs Wrightson, Mrs Loney and Mrs Paddison.
