SFS Events – Athlete Event

Dear Parents/Carers,

Letters will be given to your children next week however, hopefully you are already aware of the exciting upcoming event with Frederick Afrifa. On the 30th and 31st of January, he will be coming into school to do a fitness workout with all of the children (one class at a time). He will then deliver an assembly where the children can ask him questions and discuss his training.

We are very excited to be working with ‘Sports for Schools’ with this event who support athletes in the journey but also give 60% of the money raised back to the school for equipment so they can continue to promote participation in sport.

Please can we encourage you to complete your sponsorship using the following link:

Thank you so much for your support in this event.

Genius Time

Our value for Genius Time, this term, has been resilience. Resilience is the ability to cope when things go wrong. Children have been taught some of the language that they can use (e.g. positive self talk) and skills (e.g. problem solving) when faced with situations that will require resilience, in a safe and fun environment provided through the Genius Time activities. The children have now also completed a class reflection where they share with their teacher what they have learnt and discuss how this can be embedded into their daily classroom practise.

This term your child will have completed two of these activities:

  • Awesome Art
  • Super Science
  • Brill Board Games
  • The Wonderful Outdoors
  • Zumbatastic
  • Drama Stars

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! We simply cannot believe we are at the end of the first term already. Honestly, we have loved getting to know your children this term and are looking forward to the new year.

We have been completely overwhelmed by your generosity and the children’s kind words in their cards. Thank you so much for this, it has made us feel so special! 

Have lovely holidays and see you on Tuesday January 7th 2020!
