Reading Challenges

Reading is the most vital learning tool your child can develop. It’s also great fun and relaxing too! National expectation and standard for attainment in reading is HIGH. It is essential that your child is encouraged to read at home, with an adult, and to select challenging books.

Many of our KS2 children are choosing books to read first thing in the morning which are well below the level required to meet the demands of the new curriculum. Let’s work together to ensure reading remains a priority for improvement.

Archaeology in Action

A team of Year 4 children had the tremendous and unique opportunity to visit a site of historical importance on Tuesday. They met archaeologists who worked on the excavation of the tomb of King Richard and learned about the tools and techniques an archaeologist uses. They were able to handle real Roman pottery (picture attached).

Some of the children tried on the heavy chain mail which the Knights Hospitallers  wore. Many thanks to Mrs Jansari (a keen archaeologist herself) who facilitated this exciting learning opportunity for our children.

Many thanks to everyone who made Shraad donations to school. £175 was raised! This money will be used to buy books for our classrooms and a special label will be placed inside each book acknowledging the donation.

Headteachers Message

Dear Parents & Carers

Our school has been a hive of activity this week and as I write this post, I am eagerly anticipating our Navratri Celebrations. I will include some photographs on next week’s newsletter.

We began the week with a visit from our local PCSO and a representative from the fire service. They joined us in assembly to deliver important reminders about how we can all Celebrate Safely through Diwali, Bonfire Night and in the lead up to Christmas. It is wonderful to welcome professionals who help us and both visitors were extremely impressed by our attentive and respectful children here at Abbey.

Best wishes

Ellie Green – Head Teacher
