Cool Afternoon – This is an opportunity for you to come and see what your child has been working on in class, and also to wander around school and see what every class has been doing. COOL stands for Come and Observe Our Learning.

Learning Together – this is where we invite you to come into school to take part in a lesson with your child. It could be on reading, writing, e-safety – whatever the children are working on at that time. Don’t worry that you won’t know what to do! The sessions are designed for you to come and see what your child is doing. We won’t put you on the spot and the lessons are designed to be very informal. After each session, there is an opportunity for you to meet Jim (Headteacher) or Allison (Deputy Headteacher) to discuss school generally through our ‘Parent Forum.’

Reading Together – Friday morning is our ‘Love Reading’ session across school. This term, we are inviting parents to come and share this with us. It is an opportunity for you to come into your child’s class and share a book with them. It is also an opportunity for you to ask staff any questions/queries you may have about reading with your child.

Miles Away Monday – the whole school ‘travels’ to another destination in the world and learns about that country for the day. They may look at food, music, art work, tourist attractions, history – anything really!

Rewards Morning – each week children earn bouncy castle minutes and treat tokens for completing their homework. Once a term, we have a reward morning where we have a bouncy castle in school, and an ice-cream van in school. Children can spend their treat tokens on an ice-cream or other treats from our treat shop and also redeem their minutes earned on the bouncy castle! Don’t panic – ice-cream always comes after bouncy castle time…

Dress Down Day – On the last Friday of every month, we hold a ‘Dress Down day.’ Children are invited to come to school in non-uniform and bring 50p. All money goes to the Friends of the school and goes towards paying for school trips.
