Congratulations to KS2 for a marvellous production of Aladdin!
We have a handy guide produced by ParentMail to assist with any problems.
A child in school has recently had a positive test for scarlet fever. Early symptoms include headache, sore throat, swollen glands, high fever, nausea and a rash, initially on the chest and stomach. Diagnosis involves taking a swab from the person’s mouth to be analysed. If your child is unwell with any of the above symptoms, it may be wise to consult with your doctor. Public Health England information regarding symptoms and comprehensive guidancecan be found below.
A great time was had by all of KS2 yesterday learning about the construction of bridges. Using just wooden canes and elastic bands, the children worked together to build a suspension style bridge that filled the school hall from corner to corner! Along the way, they learnt about 3D mathematical shapes and how bridges are strengthened. Teamwork was essential and the Y3s and Y4s worked together brilliantly. To see what we got up to, take a look. We would like to say a huge thank you to our PTA who kindly funded this enrichment activity.

KS2 created their own photostories all about Bristol. They researched lots of information about different landmarks in Bristol, narrated and added tranistions and background music to their stories. To see their Bristol Photostories please follow this link here.
We are hoping the pool will soon be ready and the weather will be warmer.
So, we are making plans for swimming in the school pool to begin week commencing Tuesday 3 June 2014.
The swimming timetable will be displayed on school notice boards and on the school website (CLICK HERE). All classes will need at least one parent volunteer to attend each swimming session, so if you have a current CRB clearance and you can spare some time to support us accessing the pool, please could you contact the school office as soon as possible to let us know the sessions you are available. In order to comply with our current procedures we need three adults present for any swim session to run.
Swimming sessions for Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 will be a mix of qualified swim teacher sessions and class teacher led sessions. Some additional sessions will be provided for an improvers group of key stage 2 children. These children will be notified individually.
Children should wear:
• Trunks or swimsuit - We advise that children refrain from wearing bikinis or beach shorts as these limit a child's ability to move freely during a teaching session.
• Swim hat
• Goggles are not compulsory, but we recommend that they are used
(These should be purchased from a reputable outlet and should meet British Standards).
• Appropriate water-proof footwear for walking between classrooms and poolside e.g. flip-flops/crocs
Children cannot wear:
• armbands/or costumes with floatation aids attached
• ear-rings (please send your child without ear-rings on swimming days)
All children are expected to take part in swimming lessons as part of our PE curriculum. If your child is unable to join in the lesson, please send a letter giving a reason to the class teacher. Any children who are not taking part in swimming sessions will be sent with suitable work to another class. Please help your child to have the correct kit in school at all times so that they can enjoy this wonderful facility that we have.
Many thanks in advance for your support
