Dear DCIS Parents,
This certainly isn't an ordinary week and I am very grateful for your understanding and cooperation during this unusual time. We have now created a Health Advisory page on the website, where all information related to the 2019-nCoV Virus will be collated. We also encourage parents to log in to the Parent Portal regularly.
The highlight of the week is author Abie Longstaff visiting us. Today's much appreciated workshops included "Ideas into Books" with Years 3 and 4, "Nature in Fiction" with Year 1 and "Writing Interesting Characters" with Year 5. Abie will continue to work with the students in the smaller settings over the next two days. Should you be interested in buying any of Abie's book, an order form can be found below.
I also enjoyed talking to the Year 1 children today as they did their modified Litter Pick around the school. I asked one boy what he was doing, to which he replied proudly “I’m saving the World’!
I hope that you have enjoyed listening to the The NAE podcast, A Little Bit of Genius, together with your children. The next episode, where Andrew Jack, Financial Times' Global Education Correspondent, is being interviewed will be available on Wednesday, 13th February. Listen here!
As always, please get in touch if you have any questions.
