RSR Day makes all gain a sense of pride.
The end of the week saw several parents arrive at school to take part in the first Read,Share and Review Day of the year. This one involved the junior children and they all did marvellously talking confidently, proudly and positively about their learning and about their progress.
The PTA disco went really well on Tuesday and, once again, it proved popular. The PTA did a fantastic job putting on another event and I encourage all to attend the Christmas Fayre next Saturday 2nd December. There will be lots to participate in and several opportunities to obtain early Christmas presents for yourselves or your loved ones. I have no doubt it will be a great event.
Attendance was won by Year 5 with 98.71%. So well done to them, but Year 4 and Year 6 both fell below the 95% threshold. I am sure both classes will be able to improve by next week. Excellent attendance is crucial and contributes massively to a pupil's positive attainment and progress.
I am so pleased with how many pupils have embraced the Rainbow Words initiative and it is fantastic to see so many well on their way to completing the colours. Similarly, the Super Readers has also continued to engage and enthuse children. This week Year 4 were the class with the highest percentage with 70% of pupils reading at least five times to an adult. Well done to them. Again, I encourage all parents to ensure they are helping their children with learning their spellings, and that they are reading daily and writing this in their child's reading record. Don't forget Hit the Button too, in order to keep the fluency skills practised.
Next week, we have our Senior Citizens' Lunch with Year 3 and our Decoration Day in Friday 1st. Sign up sheets will be available Monday afternoon and we ask that no more than 6 adults per hour. Saturday is the PTA's Christmas Fayre and I would love to see you all there helping us raise money for school.
Have a great weekend once more.
