This is one of our favourite weeks of the year-Sports Day week! With the Met Office promising Sunderland a sunny, mild day and a dog exhibition planned for 9.30am to kick (or bark) us off, it should be a wonderful family experience.
Mr. Ashton is keeping us all up-to-date with arrangements-it's going to be a fabulous event. The dog training exhibition, organised by Gil Crossley, will begin at 9.30am. Children will then return to their classrooms to prepare for the carousel of activities, the first event of the day, which begins at 10.30am. Children having a family picnic will spend the lunchtime with parents, the rest of the school will have their meal in the dining hall. Registration after lunch take place in the classroom before the elite races. Once all the races are complete, the classes will help to tidy the field then return to their classroom. Children will be dismissed individually from the class fire door.
As always there are some hilarious additional activities. Children will be able to buy a ticket from Mrs Halliday on the yard when their class has their allocated time slot. The extra activities include a Gladiator duel inflatable, an inflatable assault course and the Hot Shot Challenge.
Apart from during the lunch break, children need to stay with their class at all time. They are not allowed off the premises at lunchtime. Apart from water, children are not allowed drinks (nor food) except at lunchtime and after they are dismissed. Physical challenges and mounds of snacks and sweet drinks are never a good combination!
The forecast continues to look dry for Thursday. Here's to a memorable day.
CLASSES AND TEACHERS
There are to be no changes to our teaching staff for the Autumn term. As we are offering 30 hours for eligible nursery children from September, the Nursery class and reception class will be in separate areas of the school. The Breakfast and Supper Club will be refurbished by the council, as it is to become the nursery whilst, what is currently the Reception class quiet room, will become the Breakfast and Tea Club room. The Reception class will have the rest of the FSU to themselves.
We have allocated teaching staff to classes but have not yet allocated our nursery nurse, apprentices or teaching assistants.
