|Mrs Scott Says...|
It has been a fantastic start to this academic year, we have welcomed our new year 3 children who have settled brilliantly into life here at LJS, as well as our two new members of staff Mrs McGuire and Miss Bradshaw who are a fantastic asset to our great team.
This term is our Discover term, and the children are really getting stuck into their topics, I have seen some great learning and the children have been able to articulate this well. For more information about what they are learning check out our new website at: https://www.larkfields-jun.notts.sch.uk
We also have a focus on two of our key drivers, being a team worker and an effective participator. The children are really engaging with these, and we have seen lots of great examples of them being both a team worker and an effective participator.
I am very proud of how well all the children have returned to school and we are seeing lots of fantastic examples of them demonstrating out Take Care Values.
We are looking forward to another busy half term as we hurtle toward December and all the fantastic events we have planned.
Learning Walk and Open Evening
It was fantastic seeing so many parents attend our learning walk and open evening. We hope it was informative and gave parents a good look at how the day-to-day classes run and the kind of work our children produce. Our school chef also kindly made school dinner tasters for parents to sample during the Open Evening and many said the brownie dessert was delicious and the Vegan sausage roll was better then Greggs! It’s lovely to receive this feedback and we look forward to inviting our parents into school again in the future.
We have had a super response to the launch of ‘Boom Readers’. The children have been very excited about logging their reading and collecting gems! We are pleased to be reducing our use of paper with a digital system and hope that the Boom Reader app is proving a convenient way for you to log your child’s reading at home.
With the days getting darker and weather getting colder, please make sure you and your children are staying safe when you are coming to and from school, especially if your child walks alone or without a parent.
Reflective gear is a great way to make sure you remain seen and where possible, try to walk on well-lit pavements and pathways.
Don’t forget: Stop, Look & Listen when crossing roads.
