Following the receipt of 600 bulbs, Oak class spent their welly walk planting so that we will have a beautiful display of flowers in the garden. Photographs of the planting will follow – I forgot to bring them home! Unfortunately this meant that we were unable to distribute the Christmas Fayre flyers, fortunately a fabulous parent has volunteered to do this. Thank you.
Health and Safety
All children who were in school on Thursday have been taught how to use our play equipment safely. They need to hold on with both hands and only have one person on a piece at a time. I was hoping to post a video but unfortunately this couldn’t happen. If you are unsure how to keep your children safe on the equipment then please ask. We are happy for your children to use the equipment before and after school but please be aware that it is your responsibility that they do this safely before 8:40 a.m. and after 3:15 p.m.
Light box Puppet shows
All pupils have been making puppets for their light box puppet shows which they will be sharing at Coleford Baptist Chapel on Saturday 1st December at approximately 3:00 p.m. then participating in the parade. The children have worked really hard today doing the preparations, and will be perfecting their performances next week. Roger Dury, Kirsti and Kate said how creative our children were especially Willow in their story writing and how they collaborated well as a team. This was lovely to hear as these are things that we have been working on with our new curriculum.
Poppy has written a brief summary of her morning:
This morning we planned our story for the puppet show. Our theme was a bird called diamond and an explorer who was trying to turn on the Northern Lights. Then, Toby and I made our puppet theatre. My favourite part was making the puppets and seeing the start and finish.
As you can see the children are all “spotty” for Children in Need. Thank you for all of your donations.
We do our very best to resolve all issues that parents come to talk to us about to the best of our ability; ideally with all parties happy with the resolution. Sometimes this doesn’t happen but we have a set procedure and policy in place to ensure that there is transparency in the way that we act. The full complaints policy can be found in the policies section of the website. The one element that I would like to point out is that complaints need to be from a named person, not an anonymous collective.
