Sometimes it can be hard keeping track of all the things that go on at school (which is a good thing – who wants a school where nothing interesting or newsworthy happens?).
But we want to make it that little easier for you to keep up with everything. Which is where a little modern technology and communication comes in. There are now more ways than ever that you can keep up to date:
But from now on we’ll be putting a new blog post up right here, and updating the BREAKING NEWS section of the school website with updates, news, and reminder of the things that we’ve added, changed, altered, or just want to bring to your attention.
So, without further ado….
THE WEEKLY WHAT’S NEW. Weds 26th September.
1. Maths Guides and Parents Guides on the website
These are specially written to help you help your child with their maths, showing you the way Maths is taught here at Wilberfoss.
The Parents Guides are there to help with other aspects of school life, with links to the termly Curriculum Information leaftlets, weblinks and resources, even downloads you may find useful. And all of this can be found in the PARENT’S AREA of the website.
2. School Clubs
We’ve finalised the list of clubs available at Wilberfoss for this term – on the SCHOOL EVENTS AND CLUBS pages of the website. Lots going on!
3. Updates to the Library
You mayhave seen this in the blog post yesterday, but in addition to the regular sets of new books we bring into the library every half term, the Library has a new section this half-term celebrating the MODERN CLASSICS - have a look next time you’re visiting school – you may recognise some titles!
4. Guided Reading
We have also completely updated our Guided Reading books, thanks (as always) to generous donations and financial support from the Friends Of Wilberfoss School – details on the school website – LIBRARY page.
5. Foundation Stage Lunch Club
We wanted to point this out to you this term, especially if you have a child currently in Foundation Stage 1. Did you know that we offer a special Foundation Stage Lunch Club, where, for a very reasonable fee, your child can share in the experience of lunchtime at school, as they have school dinners or packed lunches under the supervision of the Nursery Nurse in a specially prepared Foundation room. It’s lots of fun, and a great introduction to part of the school day they’ll be taking part in next year when they join FS2.
Lots of details and pictures on the school website – SCHOOL INFORMATION – SCHOOL MEALS page.
6. Pupil Work
As usual, our pupils have already started producing some great, great work that finds its way onto our walls, and into the PUPIL GALLERY sections of the school website.
7. Topic Work
As the pupils settle into their topics for this half term, please take a look at the relevant TOPIC PAGES on the school website:
Year 1 & 2: THE IRON MAN.
Year 3 & 4: VIKINGS!
Year 5 & 6: WAR OF THE WORLDS (including some great Year 5 Launch Day photos)
8. School Blog
Well, you’re reading it, so you’re already aware of it! But over the last week or so we’ve had posts about the Library changes, Guided Reading, Modern Classics, Lunchtime Golden Table, Foundation Lunch Club, Year 5 Space Launch Day, and more!
More next week, updates and more items of interest!
