Over the next few weeks, both before and after half term, we have several opportunities for parents (and grandparents) to get involved and come in to school (subject to the local and national picture regards the pandemic):
THURSDAY, 21st October 2021, 2:30pm
Due to repairs having to take place at St. Mary’s Church, this term’s Harvest service will now be held in our school hall. The Ahlberg class will be leading this term’s service, and parents of children in Ahlberg (Year 2) are welcome to come along to support their child during these harvest celebrations, with a maximum of 2 guests per child. Unfortunately, in order to manage numbers, we are unable to accommodate parents from other year groups on this occasion. We would ask that attendees please wear a face mask.
MONDAY, 1st November 2021, 2:00pm
Back to School – Power Maths
Mrs Weston will be leading a session for parents on how we teach Power Maths. She will be looking at the structure of a typical Power Maths lesson, the vocabulary and resources used, as well as how we stretch, challenge and support all of our pupils during these lessons. Power Maths breaks down the work in an easily understandable way, which is very different from how it used to be taught. Therefore, if you are new to Power Maths or would like a refresher in order to support your child’s learning, please come along. In order to manage numbers, we would ask that there is only 1 adult representative per child and that attendees please wear a face mask. Please call or email the school office beforehand so we know how best to accommodate the numbers.

The Great Exhibition
With a focus on Science and History, representatives from each year group will be showcasing typical examples of the learning which has taken place during the first half term of this academic year. Once again, in order to manage numbers, there will be a limit of 1 visitor per family. The exhibition will be set up with a one-way system and we will be limiting the number of adults in the exhibition at one time. Again, we would ask all visitors to please wear a face mask.
This is a new event we are trialing, so we would love to hear your feedback on this.

Year 1 Power Maths Lesson
As a result of the pandemic, parents of our Year 1 children will not have yet experienced a Power Maths session with their child. This is a great opportunity to come into school and share the learning experience with your child as part of a Power Maths session taught by Miss Dennis. These back-to-school sessions have previously been incredibly popular with parents, highlighting that Maths isn’t that scary after all!
WEDNESDAY, 17th & 24th November 2021
It will be so lovely to welcome grandparents into the school to join us for lunch. In order to manage numbers, the lunch will be split over two consecutive Wednesdays; 17th November will be for grandparents of families with multiple siblings in the school; and 24th November will be for grandparents of single children families. Further correspondence will be sent out after the half term.
