Happy Easter Week


On Friday afternoon Year 4 presented their very effective and emotional class assembly. The children retold the Easter story using light as their only prop. Rev'd Child is leading the school's end of term Easter assembly on Wednesday but has already said that he is unable to better Year 4s interpretation. Congratulations to Mr. Howe and the whole class.



Staff are looking forward to discussing your child's progress on Tuesday and Wednesday. Children are welcome to come along as we believe they are part of the process when discussing progress, targets and next steps. However, we appreciate that your children often have a very busy social diary with cubs, Brownies, swimming, dance etc!



Tim Taylor from Norwich is leading our training day on Thursday. He will help us to explore creative routes into the new National Curriculum so, as this is a passion of mine, I am particularly excited and looking forward to the day. We are being joined by colleagues from four other schools too so it will be a day of high quality professional training and dialogue.



We return to school on Monday 20th April. On that day living eggs will be delivered to the Foundation Stage Unit so that we can observe chickens hatching and take care of them until they are rehomed  on a free range farm.



This week we will say farewell to Mr. Fryatt as he moves on from Seaburn Dene Primary School. We wish him well in the next stage of his career in education and send him off with the hope that his mountain of jelly babies never erodes!



We do everything we can to return lost property to its rightful owners but, at this stage of the year, we find that names have been washed or rubbed off. Please spend 15 minutes of your two week break renewing names on garments including footwear to make it easier for us to match the misplaced items to their owners.



I think the vast majority of our parents would be shocked to hear that children in our school as young as Year 3  play "Call of Duty" and "Grand Theft Auto", both games being aimed at the adult market. It will be interesting to see what happens in Nantwich where a group of schools consider this to be neglect, reportable to police. The article is in the "Daily Mail" today.
