TRANSITION DAY

Yesterday was an exciting day for us all. We welcomed Mrs Francis (Deputy Head), Mr Sargeant (Base 4), Miss Pitchford (Base 2) and Miss Willis, our new teachers and EYFS teaching assistant into school. They had a lovely day getting to know us and their classes for September. Mrs McGhie and Miss Phillips spent time with their new classes too. I was lucky enough to be able to drop in on each class and the children were all settled and enjoying the opportunity to meet their new teachers.

Our pre-schoolers were able to have an extra afternoon visit, which was lovely. Thank you to pre-school and mums and dads for accommodating the extra date.

Miss Pitchford and Mrs Francis will be in school again before the end of term.

We welcomed Jasmine to Year 5, who will be joining us in September as a Y6. Thank you to Chloe and the Year 5 class for their very warm welcome.

We also welcomed Hilary Howell from Nantwich Library who led an assembly introducing the children to this year's Big Summer Read , where Roald Dahl's books are being celebrated.

BRINE LEAS STAFF NETWORKING

We have very close school links with Brine Leas School and staff from both schools benefit mutually from the networking opportunity being part of the NEP offers and learning from each other.

On Monday we welcomed Mr Boulton who led a Y4 art workshop. You can read more in a previous news article.

On Wednesday morning we welcomed Miss Malkin (Head of Humanities) and Mrs Parkes (Head of Science) to school. They came to see our children's work in upper KS2 in order to pitch the learning in KS3 appropriately and to look at how we differentiate our curriculum to meet the needs of all children in mixed ability classes. They spent time with Year 5, Miss Phillips and myself. They were very impressed with the level of work the children were undertaking and also with the presentation of the pupil's work. They took away planning ideas and assessment ideas too.

Today (Friday), our Y5 and 6 travel to Brine Leas to participate in the Inter-house Language competition run by Mr Cador. Six primary schools are taking part this year. A big thank you to Madame Sharpe and Mrs McGhie for preparing the children.

On Monday we welcome two science teachers from Brine Leas who will lead a science lesson for our Y6.
