Welcome to the Spring 2014 edition of Newsline

Some Events from This Term

It’s hard to pick out just a few events to feature, but here are some of my favourites:

Class Condiments: Throughout this term, Anoushka and Emma have cooked us delicious lunches, with a little help from the children. Each class has taken a turn to prepare some kind of accompaniment or condiment for a lunch one day. They have made garlic bread, Yorkshire puddings, salsa, raita, foccacia, gravy, bread rolls, seafood sauce, stuffing and roasted vegetables. This has all been great practice for the...

Bring and Share Lunch! For the last school lunch of this term, we all sat down together to enjoy a Ploughman’s lunch. Every class contributed something to the feast: cheese straws, fresh smoothies, pizza, Greek salad, rice crispie cakes. This is a new tradition but one we very much intend to keep up!

Alexandra School Photography Competition: All the children took part in our biannual photography competition. The theme was “Alexandra Looking Different” and the children were challenged to take photographs of the school environment, but from a different angle. School council chose the best entry from each class, then the School Leadership Team were given the final vote on the winner. We decided that it should be Mindipa in Blue-winged Geese, for his beautiful photo looking up through the branches of a tree. You can see his photo, and all the other photos, on display in school.

Alexandra Extravaganza: Thank you to all the parents who came to watch our Extravaganza on Wednesday. If you weren’t able to attend, or would simply like to watch it again, it will be uploaded to Fronter over the break.

I hope that all Alexandra children, families and staff enjoy the school holidays. The summer term begins on Tuesday 22nd April. I look forward to seeing you all then.

Best wishes

Head of School

Family Learning
This term, the Family Learning Project have focused on playing family games. Families and children met together regularly after school for 5 weeks to share experiences together, and learn some new ideas. Family Learning will resume in the summer term. Look out for flyers and text messages in the new term for more information about this.

Gate Gossip
Parents have met together this term to discuss and learn about changes to Respite Care in Harrow, help with filling in the new DLA forms for children, and…. These sessions are held in the afternoons and are open to all. We are currently planning our parent and family events for next term, so if you have any ideas or requests, do let Jan know.

After-school clubs

One of the Academy schools, Sunshine House, have kindly allowed some of the Alexandra children to use their swimming pool once a week after school for Splash! - a fun swimming session. Other children have taken part in a Trampolining club. More After School Clubs will be offered in the Summer Term. Look out for leaflets advertising these after the Easter Holidays.

Attendance total
For this term, attendance for the whole school stands at just over 96%. This means that a huge number of the children in school are reaching or exceeding their target!
Congratulations, and thank you all for doing all you can to ensure your children come to school as much as is possible.
