The accreditation visit began last Sunday when the Team listened to the voices of all stakeholders, meeting with students, parents, teachers and the Senior Leadership Team. It was a superb opportunity for the school to share and celebrate our IPC learning. Over the week, the Team scrutinised planning, books and whole school documentation whilst observing teaching and learning. Class 3A also shared their IPC learning in a special assembly which was held on Tuesday. Well done to the 3A Team for presenting such an enjoyable, informative assembly. Staff and children seemed to fully enjoy the inspection which was rigorous and we look forward to receiving our report from the Team. We will share any feedback with parents at the start of the academic year. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all parents who were able to meet with the team, and our wonderful, dedicated staff and of course our talented children.
This year, we held our usual Book Days when we celebrated literacy from across the globe. We were lucky to have local authors visiting the school who spoke to the children about their books. This week, we heard that one of our authors, Mrs Basma Terro, who has children in the school, is one of the winners of the 2019 International Book Awards. Mrs Terro’s book is called Light of Hope with the inspiration for the book being her daughter Alma who is in Class 3A. We plan to feature Mrs Terro’s book in our School Library in the new academic year.
Tomorrow, Mr Mannings will be hosting a whole school Music Assembly. The assembly will be starting promptly at 7.40am. Please be aware that seating for this event will be limited as we need to fit children as well as adults in the hall. We look forward to seeing you tomorrow.
Also last week, we had a great turnout for this month’s Friends of Compass School (FCS) coffee morning. Thank you to all parents who attended and once again thank you to Matina (FCS Chairperson) and the Team for organising the morning. Matina created some wonderful cupcakes which were topped with a special FCS design and I believe were absolutely delicious.
Year 4 shared their learning with parents on Wednesday as they celebrated their Active Planet unit Exit Point. It was wonderful to hear the children talking confidently about different aspects of their learning. Well done, Year 4.
On Tuesday, our Year 2 children excitedly boarded a bus to visit the Build a Bear workshop to celebrate their exit point for their IPC unit, the Magic Toymaker. The children thoroughly enjoyed the trip and came back with their own personal bear creation. On Thursday, our Early Years children visited Kidzmondo. The children had a great time and had the opportunity to role play genuine occupations from real life industries. The team arrived back on campus exhausted but had a truly fun-packed day.
Have a fantastic week.
