Exciting news – each class is blogging to share learning with you! Please register on our school website to be authorised to view the blog for your child’s class. https://astburyschool.org.uk/ The link to the blogs can be found at the bottom of the front page of the site.
Click on the class that you want to register for and then click on the ‘ if you would like to register . . . Please CLICK HERE’
Please choose a username (only lowercase a-z and numbers) Once you have registered, your child’s teacher will authorise you to view the blog – once registered, you will receive notifications when the blog is updated to keep up to date with learning that is going on in your child’s class.
If you have family members or Godparents etc. that would like to be authorised to see the blog too then please pass on this information to them. We might not recognise their name so please let us know who to look out for so we can authorise access for them. If you have a child in another class – or you want a look at what goes on in another class – then once you are registered with one class, we can authorise you access to other classes.
If you have any problems with accessing the blogs, please let us know.
The routines of the term are starting; reading was last week and spelling was set on Monday. Other homework has been set yesterday for the half term – please check your child’s bag and read the letter in the front of their book. The curriculum plan for this term for their class is being given to children today and will shortly be on the website.
Please read this to support learning in the conversations you have about the day in the car or around the tea table.
Staff are keen to plan information meetings / workshops for parents – such as the class welcome meetings, helping your child in reading, how we teach maths, residential meetings, keeping your child safe online etc. I would be grateful if you would complete the short survey at the end of this letter regarding days / times that you could work around to attend a meeting in school so that when we plan for this year we can bear this in mind.
Democracy has been exercised during this week on several occasions. Classes have voted for pupil council members and yesterday, the whole school listened to speeches and voted for Head Girl and Head Boy leadership positions.
The councils and roles will be in the next newsletter – many congratulations to all who were elected and well done to all who took the time to prepare their speech and put themselves forward.
Finally, I will be teaching in class Jacob and class Noah on Wednesdays, my focus will be on the children in these classes unless these is an emergency! Please be aware of this if you need to contact me.
