2nd February 2024

Dear Parents and Carers,

The children have had a fabulous week in school. A number of classes have enjoyed trips to the sea life centre.  One child has had a fabulous week of firsts! They said ‘Hello’ during our hello song and tried a chip from the school dinners. Another has been initiating play with their peers. One class did really well with the therapy dog. It was their first time meeting Willow and they were very intrigued. Children in another class engaged wonderfully with their music lesson. They followed adult instructions and played along to their favourite songs with great enthusiasm. One child has been completing all their work and has been very proud of what they have done. Another tolerated getting changed for PE and another learnt to do their zip up on their coat. These examples show a range of progress in social development, engagement and in children being able to do more for themselves which will support them to increase their independence, which is fantastic! Finally, one child swam 100 metres at Littlehampton Wave. What a great achievement!

Attendance Focus

Best attendance for last week:

Explorers Hub – Leopard class

Investigators Hub – Crocodile class

Engineers Hub – Sloth class

Please remember to call the pupil absence line as early as possible if your child is not going to be in school. When you leave a message, please state the reason for absence. Please call each day of your child’s absence unless you have informed us that your child will not be back until a certain date. Your support with this is appreciated. Thank you!

Modern technology and the internet are wonderful tools if used correctly. However, they have an element of danger when using them and it is extremely important to remain proactive to ensure that children remain safe. You have been sent the Online Safety Newsletter for February via MCAS.

Catriona
