Year 2 have Ducklings!! 


Meet our fabulous New Arrivals Ambassadors!This week we have been lucky enough to have ducklings in Year 2 that have been brought in by one of our amazing volunteers, Birgitte Attley. The ducklings will be popping home for the weekend but will be back next week so that Year 2 can watch them develop. After half term, they are planning to come back for a final visit when they hope to use our pond! Next week, Birgitte will be bringing an orphaned lamb into school for the day which every class will have the chance to meet and after half term Year 1 are hoping to have chicks to look after. Thank you Birgitte!

 

The New Arrivals Ambassador Scheme

IMG_0077 (Small)
The New Arrivals Ambassador scheme provides additional support to pupils who are joining a school part way It recognises the huge potential that exists within school  for pupils to use their skills and knowledge to support new arrivals so that they feel safe, settled and valued from the start. Our New Arrivals Ambassadors have had specific training to prepare for this role and the group is led in school by Mrs Ballinger.

The support they can offer to a newly-arrived pupil can be very reassuring from a parent point of view, at a time when their child may be adapting to substantial changes. It also supports school staff in a variety of ways at different points during the school day. New Arrivals Ambassadors use their communication skills in a variety of ways to help new arrivals feel part of the school. They explain a whole range of school activities, systems and procedures to new entrants through the medium of pupil–friendly communication and develop resources to help the new arrival settle quickly into the life of the school.

Good Bye Mr Gray – we will miss you!!

Mr Gray has worked at our school since November 1999. Staff gave Mr Gray a watch & an orchid and parents all donated towards chocolates, a rose & £100 of gardening vouchers! The whole school sang the school song during our Easter Bonnet assembly this morning – which is Mr Gray’s favourite! Mr Gray spoke to the children in assembly about always doing their best & continuing to try hard at school.

Enjoy your retirement!

Congratulations to our fourth Lunchtime Superstar Award winner – this time in Year 2!

OUR SPONSORED CHARITIES!
