Foundation Stage & Key Stage 1: Lifelong learners

While students look forward to Book Week, including the Great STA Book Week Bake-Off, teachers continue to learn and explore the STEAM projects that will be going on during the rest of the school year... Also, read on for useful dates for your diary between now and the end of term.

Welcome back to school after the long weekend

The students had slightly longer to relax than their teachers, as they were still busy in school preparing for future events and also facing some learning challenges of their own. You may already know of school’s growing association with MIT, and Thursday saw a whole school workshop the aim of which was to introduce both Primary and High School teachers to some of the STEAM projects that the students will be undertaking during the next term and a half.

It was a great opportunity to see how the projects can span every subject area and age group and also a chance to catch up with colleagues from other parts of school. If the students enjoy the projects as much as the teachers did, it should be something to look forward to.

Book Week Preparations are well underway

New families should know that one of the biggest events of the year will be happening in a few weeks’ time - Book Week is on its way. The week beginning 19 March will see a massive celebration of books and reading, with some favourite events and competitions happening throughout the week.

We will be visited by David Bedford, an award winning children’s author from the UK. As many of David’s books are for younger children he should be very popular with the Foundation Stage and KS1 children.

Details of the many competitions being run will be given to the children soon - including Book Week Bake Off, which has been adapted this year in view of its amazing popularity last time around.

Of course, on Friday 23 March we will have one of our favourite events - the Book Character Parade. Children and teachers will all come to school dressed as their favourite book character, with prizes up for grabs for creative, inventive, homemade costumes. Mums and Dads are also welcome to dress up and join in the fun.

Timings of the parades and details of other events will be sent out to you soon - but for your information, parades will be early in the morning.

The Great STA Book Week Bake-Off

After the huge success of last year’s competition, we are happy to announce that we will again hold the Great STA Bake-Off on Friday 23 March as part of our Book Week activities. Students are asked to design a cake or cookies with the theme “Love of Reading”. You can ask your teacher for a template. Your ideas should be submitted either to your class teacher or directly to Mrs. Leanne (Room A12) by Wednesday, 14 March. Finalists will be asked to make their cakes and bring them to school on Friday 23 March when the judging will take place. House points will be awarded for every entry and prizes will be awarded to the top 3 entries in each of the following categories: EYFS; KS1; KS2 (Y3 & Y4); KS2 (Y5 & Y6). Please remember that St Andrews is a nut free school. Nuts may not be used in any of the recipes. Good luck and get baking!

NAE Photographer at Primary School

On Friday of this week (9 March 2018) there will be an NAE photographer visiting our Primary School to document some of the exciting activities taking place across the Primary section. For this Friday only, could you please ensure that your Primary children wear their regular school uniform and not their house t-shirts.

The Nord Anglia Parents Survey

Thank you to all those parents who have already completed the NAE Parent Feedback Survey. Each family should have received an email from your child’s class teacher which had a link to this survey. The deadline for submissions is Sunday 18 March 2018.

Your answers and comments will be taken into account when we analyse this data and the results will give us valuable feedback about how our school is operating across a wide range of areas. We can then use this information to help us to plan our developments over the next two years. The time you take to complete the survey is very much appreciated and will help us move forward together and focus on the issues that our community considers are high priorities for us to develop further to meet your expectations.
