Next week we will be kicking off Literacy Week in KS2. There will be fun events to promote reading and literacy including a spelling bee, bookmark projects, book cover design contests and a Book Character Dress-up day. Please stay tuned to further information.

As we move into the winter months a few reminders to help keep our community healthy:

* Please do not send your child to school if they exhibit any cold symptoms

* Please reinforce the protocols for school like mask-wearing

* Encourage healthy eating and hand-washing at all times

Thank you for your support.

Welcome to the second half of Term 1

Nov 17,2020

Welcome to the second half of Term 1. We are celebrating Literacy Week next week so please be on the lookout for more information for the week’s events. We will be encouraging the love of reading and language during the week.

Please discuss with your child the importance of keeping their masks on and being as socially distant as they can. We are in a critical time entering the winter months and need to refocus back to health and safety measures within our community. The next few months are very important to wear masks, wash hands and keep distance.

We wish you a wonderful short week.

Mid-term Break

Nov 09,2020

The month of November will be a very busy one. We will have a midterm break on November 15-16. Parents will receive information on your child’s progress at midterms towards the end of this week. This will give you a small glimpse at their progress after these 6 intensive weeks back to school five days a week. We have made a lot of progress getting children back into their routines and structure. We still need your support in daily reminders of mask-wearing, social distancing, and washing hands as we enter the winter season. Please enjoy your midterm break.

Welcome to November

Nov 02,2020

Welcome to November. We celebrated a fun day with Halloween celebrations – some spooky science activities and trick or treating. It was a fun day before KS2-KS4 begin exams. Remember a good night’s sleep and breakfast are very important components to set children on the path to success in their midterm exams. This is the first exam for many children in months so helping them to relax will also help ensure confidence in these challenging times.

Preparations have begun to plan parent meetings for November 15th to ensure safety and social distancing for all involved. More information will be shared about how these meetings will be held this year in unique circumstances.

Thanks for al your support of the school’s protocols and requirements to help keep everyone safe and healthy.

We have ended a very successful Environmental Awareness Week with students becoming more aware of how they impact the environment and small steps we can do to help. We held a successful plant sale sponsored by the student council in Key Stage 2. We would like to thank all the students and parents for supporting the student-led initiative.

Students of any year group can check out books from the library during their break or lunchtime. They will need permission from their teacher to go to the library outside of their library time. There are some wonderful new additions to the library collection in all reading levels.

Please be sure your child is wearing a mask upon entering school and has extras available in case of lost, misplaced, or dropped mask. This helps us to maintain our level of safety for all. We appreciate the home-school partnership in supporting our protocols.

Second week of school

Oct 01,2020

This week we have begun to get deep into our first academic units. Our settling in time is over and we are heavily focused on our learning. Break times are extremely important – the need for sun, fresh air, food, and water.

Please send your child with enough food and water for the day as there is no access to the water dispensers and limited canteen access. The classroom temperatures are set at 24° and windows and/or doors are open for ventilation. If your child gets cold at times, please send a light pullover with them to keep in their cubby.

Thank you for your support as we being the month of October!
