Welcome to the Autumn 2014 edition of Newsline

School News

Looking back at the start of term, when we welcomed 17 new children and at least half a dozen new members of staff, it feels like more than just three months ago. What a lot has been packed in since then! It has been a busy but enjoyable autumn term. In the style of “The 12 Days of Christmas”, here are some of the highlights of this term:

12 Fishy Fridays, with fresh fish bought from the local fishmonger and cooked for us by Anoushka and Emma

11 Star Badges awarded to children for keeping the Golden Rules (that was at the last count – the total is probably higher by now!)

10 Class Assemblies, videoed and uploaded to Fronter for those who might have missed them

9 Lunchtime Clubs this term, including football, choir, bingo and the incredibly popular loom bands!

8 Geese a-honking… just checking if you were concentrating! (And couldn’t think of eight of anything!)

7 fortnightly School Council Meetings, where the children have discussed topics like the film club, reading records, the pupil survey and the Christmas charity

6 classes have swum this term, at Hatch End, Aspire or Sunshine House

5 days of Active Play Week, children, staff and parents getting out and getting active!

4 After-School Clubs this term: martial arts, sensory club and trampolining twice!

3 new Parent Governors joining the school’s governing body

2 performances of our Christmas Show, “Gary the Curious Sheep”!

1 wonderful, wooden Trim trail installed in the school grounds, for playtime and PE On behalf of all the staff at Alexandra, I would like to wish our children and families a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We will see you all again on Monday 5th January! Best wishes

Perdy (Head of School)

 

Parent and Family News

This term we welcomed three new parent governors. Thank you to Mark, Karen and Tokie for volunteering for the role. They join Allie to make a fabulous foursome of parent governors on our governing body!

We hope that lots of parents have had the opportunity to visit school this term. Parents have been invited in for class assemblies (available to watch on Fronter) and for healthy eating activities early in the term. Then there was a run of Family Learning sessions with a focus on gardening. If you have the opportunity to sign up for Family Learning next term—do! Families who take part are always very positive about the sessions.

We’ve held various Gate Gossip afternoons and workshops this term, discussing topics like home school communication, transition to high school, toileting, active play and using Fronter. The first week of December saw our wonderful Table Top Sale, organised by Jan and her band of parent helpers. We are currently planning our parent and family events for next term, so if you have any ideas or requests, do let Jan know.

 

Goodbye and Hello to...

This term we have already said goodbye to Holly (LSA) who went to spend time with her growing family, and to Daniel (LSA) who went travelling. Amelia (teacher) went on maternity leave in November and has since welcomed her second son Jonas into the world! (And Dennis Goldthorpe’s second grandchild!)

At the end of term we will say a fond farewell to Lewis, who has been a pupil at Alexandra since 2011. We all wish Lewis lots of love and luck in the future. You will always be one of our geese!

In January we will say hello again to Georgie (LSA) who is returning from her maternity leave. It will be good to have her back.
