Dear Parents and Carers,

It was great to see so many dads and male relatives in school on Friday. The children enjoyed a variety of different activities from story-telling to music, basketball, computer based activities and many more. I hope that the men enjoyed it too!

We are delighted to welcome Miss Mortimer as the newly wed, Mrs Campbell back to Leopard class. Thank you to all the parents who have completed the Annual Questionnaire – we’ve had about 140 back so far, but we want to get at least 150 responses. There is a chance that you could win a £30 M&S voucher (but you’ll need to put your name on it). You can leave your completed questionnaire with the office or your child’s teacher by Friday. If you need another copy of the form, please let me know.

Best wishes,Penny Cox 

Important information:

You will all have been aware of the child protection issues around the App Musically. This App was bought and now operates under the name Tik Tok. Essentially people can make ten second videos to post. These can go out to millions of viewers. In order to get noticed, some people make very silly or extreme videos. This App is not appropriate for anyone under 12 years of age. If your child is using it, please learn about it and supervise what they are posting or watching – even better would be to stop them using it. We are having some inappropriate language used in school as a result of some of the videos children are watching.

Chaplain’s Corner: Deuteronomy 32:10:  “like an eagle that stirs up its nest and hovers over its young, that spreads its wings to catch them and carries them aloft.”This is a wonderful picture of a parent eagle helping its young learn to fly and to finally discover their true potential. We do not travel alone on this journey of life, God watches over us in his grace and ultimately catches us. Praying that you may all be strong and courageous in what you do this week. Every Blessing, Tom.

The talk will be suitable for parents and teachers of learners with dyslexia and adults with dyslexia. As he quotes in his book 'Positive Dyslexia' 'given the right opportunities- dyslexic people have distinctive and important strengths to be nurtured rather than an affliction to be tolerated.
