A rather nasty virus has spread through the school this week which has left many children and staff feeling quite unwell. Please make sure that you do everything you can to make sure that your child stays healthy and safe. They should drink plenty of liquids and take a lot of rest. Little things like this will help them to remain in good health. Our football and table tennis team were in action this week and represented the school incredibly well. Unfortunately they lost both matches but were good ambassadors for Parkside. Thank you children. Next week the stage goes up in the school hall which means it’s that time of year again when the sounds of Christmas fill the corridors once again. Please do every thing that you can to help the children learn their lines. Please continue to support the school in all that we do.
The word of the week is – RECRUDESCENCE – the return of something unpleasant after a period of relief.
POEM OF THE WEEK –
MOBILE PHONES – every few months I have to remind parent and carers that we don’t allow mobile phones on site before or after school and that includes the use of ear phones to make or receive a call. The end of the school day is a very special time in a child’s daily life and for them to be able to share it with you is a lovely thing. So please remember to follow this simple but very important school rule. Thank you.
THIS WEEK’S EXAMPLES OF THE CHILDREN’S WORK –
- Recognising the power of kindness
- Teaching the key skills to be able to deal with bullying in a non-aggressive way
- Improving resilience – knowing what to do and how to deal with it

THE CHILDREN’S WORK – Once again the children impressed me with quality of their work this week. They shared with me their learning about the use of imperative verbs, story planning, mythical creatures, persuasive writing, how to multiply by 10 and 100 and the methods needed to do this, bar modelling, composite numbers and how to use perspective when drawing. It was quite an afternoon! Thank you children for sharing with me your learning and I hope that you enjoyed the experience.
ATTENDANCE AND PUNCTUALITY – There were 18 children from 16 families who were late to school on 22 occasions this week. Please make every effort to be on time for school, the effect it has on your child can have a lasting impact on their rates of progress.
