Newsletter – 28 January
Message from the Headteacher,
The children have been hard at work again this week and in Owls class they have been learning about the story of the Gingerbread Man. They made some delicious gingerbread and had fun on the playground retelling the story. Parrots have been reading Funny Bums, Freaky Beaks and really enjoyed making a collage of a food chain in Science. Eagles’ class have been researching the seven summits and working on their use of figurative language in their story writing. Penguins have been working hard on their assessments and have enjoyed researching rivers of the world.
We are currently trying to recruit a new TA to support our EAL children. If you know anyone interested please direct them to our website. In the meantime if anyone has skills and/or time to support our EAL learners please do get in touch. https://longwittenhamschool.uk/jobs/
It was lovely to meet some of the parents in Owls class this morning. Thank you to those who came along.
Have a lovely weekend. Warm regards,
