…. we’re going to catch a big one. FS2 Tigger had an amazing day at the environmental centre tracking down a BIG bear.
As you know, our Governors visit the school regularly to see what is going on, meet the children and look at learning books. This morning’s focus visit looked at writing across the school and Miss Davis took our Governors off to see what the children are doing. They saw our new handwriting scheme in action – Peg to Paper, listened to the children read their stories, spoke to them about their identities as writers and had a good look in the books.
A huge thank you to all our families for your amazing generosity this harvest. We had a lovely celebration this morning and were delighted to be joined by Rev Wendy and Nick Russell from St Saviours Church. Wendy told us all about a fearless female dairy farmer from Ireland, and Nick dazzled us with his magic tricks and helped us to think about the importance of being kind. It was a lovely celebration and our next job will be to bag up your donations and deliver them to our pensioner friends on the estate. Well done everyone
We received exciting news this afternoon when we were told that we have officially become an IQM Centre of Excellence. Miss Hogger and Miss Evans spent last year working on the Inclusion Qualitymark application with great support from the children, staff team, governors, parents/carers and local community partners. On our verification day back in the summer term, we passed with flying colours achieving a Grade 1 in every area. This special achievement recognises everything that we do to support and include our diverse and vibrant community. As the first line of the award states… “Middle Park Primary School is at the heart of a community with community in its heart.” We are very proud and a huge well done to everyone.
