Welcome to the Spring 2015 edition of Newsline

School News

A slightly shorter, but no less busy term for the children and staff at Alexandra.

Classes paired up to produce some memorable assemblies and celebrations of learning this term, and demonstrated this again at the Extravaganza this week. Included in the Extravaganza were the performances our children made at the Harrow Choir and Dance Showcases earlier this year. Thank you to the children and staff for working so consistently hard throughout this term to make these events possible, and of course to you for attending these events. Itís hard to emphasise just how much it means to the children when you take time out of your day to see them in school. If you took your own photos or videos of these events, enjoy them! Please remember that these should not be uploaded onto any social media sites, as they will contain images of other children. Thankyou for your understanding in this.

Your children will be returning home today with a kit to grow your own tomato plant. Have a go at planting this over the holiday. It would be lovely to see some photos of the plants growing, or even better, of your family enjoying these at a meal time!

The children and staff enjoyed a Bring and Share lunch today, in which classes prepared food for all to enjoy. Events like these, which bring the whole school community together, make for some magic moments!

Next term, Alexandra turns 40! We will be celebrating this on Wednesday, 25th April, and will be inviting parents to take part in some of these celebrations at the end of that day. Look out for a letter in the new term which will give more details of this.

On behalf of all the staff at Alexandra, I would like to wish our children and families a restful Spring Break. For those who celebrate Easter, I trust this will be an important time of contemplation and reflection . We will see you all again on Monday 13th April!

Best wishes

Perdy (Head of School)

 

Parent and Family News

Goslings and Snow Geese families have been involved in our brand new Making Changes parenting support course. The course has been really well attended, and conversation has been both stimulating and thought provoking for all. We have two more sessions to go, and look forward to being able to offer this course to other families in the future.

Jo Ward has led another successful Family Learning Project, with a focus on Arts and Craft. Children and parents have loved getting stuck in to messy activities and enjoyed developing confidence in engaging in these kinds of less structured tasks. It has been lovely to spend time with our children and families in this way. Do look out for more of these courses again in the summer term.

 

Goodbye and Hello to...

Alas, there are occasions when itís time for our geese to move on. Dan Egan joined us nearly six years ago. All of the children have had the opportunity to work with Dan in the time he has been here, if not as an LSA in class, then in music sessions, as part of the choir, or within the Christmas production which he has increasingly taken responsibility for writing, composing, rehearsing and performing with the children We are sorry to see him go, and wish him every success for the future.

 

Academy News

Congratulations to Pentland Field, the new Free School opened by the Eden Academy, in January. All at the school report that both children and staff have made a great start!
