New School Roof

Upcoming Building Work 

Over the next few months, we will be having the entire roof of the Key Stage 2 building replaced. Due to the size of the project, the work cannot be completed during the school holidays, so some of the work will be done during the summer term. 

Scaffolding has been erected during the half term break and the work is due to start right away. While we are still in school for the summer term, the contractors will only be working on the flat roof areas. The main pitched roof will not be started until we break up for the summer holidays.

There will be very little disruption, however due to the scaffolding the Year 5 and 6 entrance will be closed for the rest of this school year. The temporary entrance/exit for Years 5 and 6 will be through the main gates.
Unfortunately, the staff car park has been significantly reduced in size, which means most school staff will have to park on the street for the rest of the term. This means that there will not be parking available on Pragnell Road for parents. I would like to request that you make alternative arrangements and use neighbouring streets to park on and then walk the rest of the way in to school. If possible, now that we are in the warmer months, why not walk to school and enjoy this extra family time. It’s a great way to get some valuable exercise and a really lovely way to start the day.
The work is due to be completed in September.
Thank you in advance for your understanding.

This week we have been thinking about the significance of Remembrance and talking about the 100 year anniversary since the end of World War 1. Part of our learning involved all of the children making a poppy to display on the school fence with a message of peace. You can watch a video of this below.

Growth Mindset Workshop

Thank you to all the parents and family members who attended one of the Growth Mindset and Feedback workshops this week. It was fantastic to see so many of you at the sessions and I am sure that this will help you to promote a Growth Mindset at home. If you weren’t able to attend you can download the presentation here. We will also be repeating the sessions later in the year.
We highly recommend reading ‘Mindset’ by Carol Dweck. This is a really interesting book and it gives a lot more detail about the research behind Growth Mindset and ideas about how to develop it.  For your children, we recommend ‘You Are Awesome’ by Matthew Syed.
Top Tips
Praise effort over natural ability
“Well done, I can see how hard you have worked on this”
instead of
“Well done, you are so clever”
Praise the process over the outcome
“Well done, I really like that you have read though your work and improved some of the vocabulary”
instead of
“Well done, that’s an excellent piece of writing”
