Governor Monitoring: EYFS & KS1

Sue Graves (NE governor) and I had a fantastic morning at Stibbard. We were welcomed in to the first Collective Worship with Father Michael. The children enjoyed a story and joined in with the Lord’s prayer.

We started in Reception seeing their phonics session in action. They were working so hard and impressed us both with all the sounds they had already learned! We had a quick look at their fantastic Tapestry journals.

We went on to join Year 1 in English then Year 2 in Maths. Year 1 were re-telling a story using actions. We really enjoyed their performances. Year 2 were busy learning about money. When I asked a group of children if they thought this was a useful thing to learn, all said ‘yes’ except one who said it was fine he would just take all his money to the bank to be counted! They were having great fun handling the coins and notes.

Break time was full of fun and energy. We had some really good conversations with the children. It was lovely to see year group and gender mixing.

I then joined Nursery during song and story time. They all seemed to have settled back in to the new term. Excellent to see their Tapestry Journals that will travel through to Reception with them. Meanwhile Sue really enjoyed the talk from the visiting author, James Campbell. It was really inspirational and there was lots of laughter from both children and staff!

Thank you for a fantastic morning.

Fantastic Pyramids from Year 4

Wow! Year 4 have been truly amazing with their homework this last week. I sense a real feel of a family effort too. Their task was to create a pyramid, they haven’t disappointed. As you can see there are small through to large pyramids, lego to cake ones and some wonderful card ones covered in sand and one even in sugar.
Well done Year 4, I’m very impressed.

Just to make you aware, there is a planned road closure of Station Rd in Gt Ryburgh from 14th Jan – 8th Feb. This will affect children travelling by bus as there will only be one pick up which will leave earlier. Please click on the link to download the letter from NCC: Gt Ryburgh Road Closure Letter

This will also affect people who live at the top end of Gt Ryburgh or live out the other side who drive to school as you may have to take an alternative route. Please contact NCC if you do have any questions or concerns.

Year 4 Amazing Work and reminders.

I am so pleased with the attitude to learning that Year 4 have returned with after our Christmas break. They have worked tremendously hard on both days and been an absolute pleasure to teach.
Today’s writing is a secret, however I can tell you it ended with a little walk this afternoon to the post box.
There is some Sumdog work for the children to complete this weekend on their Chrome books.
Swimming starts for a Year 4 on Tuesday. Please refer to your initial letter about what is needed.
Many thanks
Mrs B.
