We have had lots of parent participation this week! First of all a big thank to those parents in St Matthews and St Peters classes for attending their child’s assembly this week . We also had a very productive first Parent Forum of the year when we all had the opportunity to meet our new chair of Governors Mrs Wendy Greatorix. Minutes of the Parent forum will be on the school website under the “parent” tab. Thank you also to those parents who answered our questionnaire in preparation for anti bullying week which we will be focussing on next term -week beginning 13th November. We will take your responses on board.
On Monday we had our first ever open morning of the year with Y5 “setting the ball rolling “ looking at reading. The feedback was good with parents feeling that they were much more aware of what their children are doing in school and can support them better at home. These are very non threatening sessions with parents mainly sitting with their children observing the lesson and helping their child. No parent is asked any questions or is expected to contribute in any way– you are the adults not the children! There will of course be lots of opportunities where the teachers will point out and emphasise to you the important parts of the lesson which you can help with at home.
The next open mornings are highlighted below– please do put them in your diary: 2nd Nov Y4, 8th Nov Y6, 5th Nov Y2, 9th Nov Y3, 14th Nov YR, 13th Nov Y1. These dates will be e mailed via ParentPay today along with the Friday updates. Parents attending each open morning are welcome to meet in the infant hall, have breakfast and then join their child for 9am and the start of the lesson. I hope to see as many of you as possible in the next term.
Have a good weekend Mrs Kathy Sexton
