Primary Newsletters

Message from the Head of Primary, Maria Woods

 

Greetings Parents/Guradians,

 

We had a very successful week for swimming at WA as we won both the Secondary and Primary School Swim Meets. Well done to the PE staff and the teams on their success and thank you to parents that were able to go along to the event and support our PE staff and the children.

 

Ms. Correia was responsible for our 'We listen' certificates this week in assembly and next week Mr. Horan will be talking to the children about resilience in relationships and we are looking forward to that.

 

Primary have decided to move the date of one of our PTC evenings this term as there is a clash on the calendar with the Y7 PTC and as Ms. Ingham now teaches in Y7 as well as in Y6 this causes a conflict. PTC dates after half term will now be Thursday 16th and Monday 27th of November. Students in Y4, 5 and 6 are asked to attend this term's PTC so they can be involved in the discussions about their learning, but the PTCs for R - Y3 children are for parents only. We will be sending out appointment times after the half term holiday. If you know you are going to be off island on either of these dates please do let your child's teacher know.

 

Don't forget that we have a Mathematics Information Evening next Thursday. This evening is for those parents who would like to know a little more about the approach to mathematics being used in Primary and will be led by Adam Unwin-Berry a trainer from the UK. See below for more information.

 

Have a great weekend, and I may see some of you at the Disco 40 event on Saturday evening.

 

Mathematics Information Evening for all WA parents
Venue - 6th Form centre
