Links News- 4th November 2022
Dear Links families,
I hope you all had a lovely half term. To those of you who celebrated, I hope you had a Happy Diwali.
Today in assembly we talked about our value for this term- resilience. We talked about what it means to be resilient and the children talked about people who have shown resilience and how they can demonstrate it in school.
Next week, on Wednesday and Thursday we are holding our first parents’ evening of the year. If you haven’t already done so, please book an appointment on our booking system by following this guide. If your appointment is in person and your child is in Reception-Year 6, please enter school via the office. If your child is in Nursery, please enter via the Early Years Gate on Gunton Road. To make appointments run as smoothly as possible, we ask that you do not bring your children into school for this parents’ evening unless it is absolutely necessary.
Now that the weather has started to get colder, please make sure that your child comes to school with a coat every day. As with all school uniform, they must be clearly named so that they can be reunited with their owner if lost.
What is my child learning?
I know that quite often you might ask your child what they are learning at school and they’ll answer with ‘I can’t remember.’ I assure you that they are learning lots! If you would like to see what topics your child is learning this half term and throughout the year, please take a look at our curriculum page on the school website.
Year 6 Trip to AFC Wimbledon
This morning, Year 6 were very lucky to go on an educational visit to The Cherry Red Record Stadium, the home of AFC Wimbledon to take part in a range of activities. While they were there they got to see the first team training ahead of tomorrow’s FA Cup match against Weymouth. They also met John Fashanu and his professional partner for this winter’s Dancing on Ice, Alexandra Schauman- the children might even pop up in the background of some filming, so keep an eye out once the series starts.
If you would like to help out on educational visits and haven’t already done so, please complete this form. It really helps the teachers to work out who might be available to help.
Year 1’s Egg-citing Mystery!
The children in Year 1 arrived back from half term to find a very mysterious egg-shaped object outside my office. This week they have been thinking about who or what might have left it there and what it might be. While investigations continue, take a look at the mysterious object on our Twitter feed. Let’s hope that Year 1’s egg-cellent work will help them to crack the case!
If you would like to book a place for breakfast or after school club for this half term, please use this form. Don’t forget that all booked places will be charged for.
Have a lovely weekend.
Lee and the Links Team
