Well, what a week and where to begin…
It has been assessment week in school. Children have showed grit and determination to be the best they can be in their reading and maths assessments. The children have also completed writing assessments recently. We will have a full school overview of achievement by the end of next week. This will help us to plan learning pathways in reading, writing and maths and enable us to see where we as a school need to make further improvements to enable your child to make further improvements.
How can you help at home?
Together, we will make a bigger difference to your child’s education at Northstead.
Children In Need
Last week we held our ‘Reet’ Big Biscuit (or cake) bake off for Children In Need. I am glad to report we made an amazing £261.03 Thanks to everyone for their donations and their biscuit and cake making!
England, England, England!
We started the week with a thumping victory for England at the World Cup. A lot of staff and children gathered in the hall to watch the World Cup together and enjoyed a great 6-2 victory. It was great to see the children shouting, cheering and celebrating together!
Festival Of Lights Day
On Wednesday, we enjoyed our Festival Of Lights day in school. A day where we learn all about how light is used to celebrate in many different religions around the world.
Children across school designed their own candle design. Candles are used all around the world to bring light to people and so are an important part of festivals.
Year 6 designed and made their own advent wreaths. Big thanks to Mrs Mitchell for sourcing all the foliage and taking her own time to ensure this wonderful opportunity was available to our Y6 children.
