I often think that the start of any month is always a time to take stock and look forward to the possibilities that lie ahead and to learn from the ones that have passed. The days are beginning to lengthen and the sun is beginning to shine once more and that has lifted everyone’s spirits again (not that we weren’t happy already!). Our World Book Day passed off incredibly well and as always I was incredibly impressed by the children and staff costumes. Some of you went to great lengths to dress up as your favourite character so thank you. The whole school wrote a story which was shared at a special assembly and the excitement levels were at a high all day. Teacher / Parent – Carer consultations take place next Wednesday and Thursday and we have Year 1 and Year 4 assemblies and workshops for families directly after. Please make every effort to attend and we look forward to seeing many of you next week.
The word of the week is – VERTUMNAL – spring like or giving a foretaste of spring, as in the early buds in the garden or the swelling of the birdsong.
POEM OF THE WEEK –
THIS WEEK’S EXAMPLES OF THE CHILDREN’S WORK –
WD6 FOOD SUPPORT – The WD6 Food support is open on WEDNESDAY & FRIDAYS from 3:15pm – 4:30pm. Parkside families can have access from 3:15pm directly after school.

ASSEMBLIES – Please make a note of your child’s assemblies time and date and we look forward to welcoming you. PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE WILL BE A WORKSHOP ON GUIDED READING DIRECTLY AFTER YOUR CHILD’S ASSEMBLY IN THEIR CLASSROOM.
ATTENDANCE AND PUNCTUALITY – There were 20 children from 16 families who were late to school on 25 occasions this week. Many children who come to school late are often from the same families. 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.
