We’ve decided to make lunchtimes even better at school.
The yard is now split into different zones, and there are loads of different activities for the children to join in with: skipping, basketball, dancing, drama, football, cricket, circle games, parachute activities, creative play and construction, the quiet zone and lots more.
The smiling faces tell their own story…
For children in Years 1-6, school will re-open on Tuesday 5th September.
Reception start on Thursday 7th September.
Rainbows, Pre-Nursery and Nursery start on Monday 11th September.
The school office will be open Monday 4th September between 10 – 11am and again between 1 – 2pm for those parents who would like to buy school uniform.
We hope that you have all had a lovely break and we look forward to seeing you.
On Thursday 13th July, The Book Bus will be coming to school for the whole day. The Book Bus sells books at discounted prices (up to 75% off shop prices).
The bus will be in the playground before school and after school, so parents can go on board with their children.
Each class will also have the chance to go onboard and buy a new book. Children can bring money into school so that they can buy a new book.
Please come along at the following times to get on board the Book Bus:
8:00 – 8:45
3:15 – 4:00
Some of Year 5 and 6 are in Barcelona. We arrived safely at 10pm, and we’re looking forward to a busy day of sightseeing tomorrow. Oh, and we love our rooms in the hostel – some of them even have an ‘upstairs’!
Here are some pics of our trip so far…
We’ll post more pictures on Twitter (@stsilasschool), and just before I go to bed, here’s the weather forecast for the next few days…
Here are some (but not all) of the children who were chosen as ‘Reader of the Term’, ‘Most Improved Reader’, ‘Spelling Bee Finalist’ and ‘Most Improved Speller’. Some of the children won a trophy; others will be getting a book when the Reading Bus comes later in this month. Well done to them all.
On Friday, lots of parents came for a short talk about the importance of maths to children’s lives. After the talk, parents went into classes to take part in a maths lesson with their children. It was a great event, and we would like to thank all the parents who came for giving up their time. For those who couldn’t come, the information has been put onto the parents’ pages that can be found on the maths tab on the website.
