This week has seen the arrival of a number of new resources in School. We have invested in a new reading scheme for KS1 and hopefully (after examining budgets!) I can invest in the books for KS2. It means that over coming weeks all children will be re-assessed using the new scheme and may well receive what appears a different level book. Please be assured that they will be on the right level for their ability. The activities in the front and back of the books are excellent for parents to use to really help your children to develop their comprehension as well as their ability to read the text. It is this comprehension that is key to success in education.
We also have used Sports Premium funding (this is ring fenced) to buy gymnastics and archery equipment. As a small school it can be difficult to get a team together to take part in the team events so we are hoping that either this year or next we can enter some county sporting events.
Young Carers Gloucestershire
One of our parents is doing the Newport Marathon to raise money for Young Carers Gloucestershire. This is a fabulous organisation that have supported many children over the years, many of which I have taught and do teach. In order to support this charity there will be cake sale on Thursday after school with all proceeds going to Young Carers. If anyone would like to bake or buy cakes for this sale they would be gratefully received. Thank you.
