Ward Green Primary School November 2019 v1 nEWSLETTER

We hope you're all enjoying our new newsletter! Any suggestions of what you'd like to see are welcome.

This month we are extra busy around school! We thought we'd take a moment to fill you in by making a mini newsletter to make sure you don't miss anything!

Don't worry, a newsletter packed full of whats been happening around school will still be made at the end of the month. The aim of this newsletter is to make sure all our parents have all the information, dates and times of the upcoming month.

Hot and cold refreshments will be available along with our Santa's grotto.
Anti - Bullying Week

This year our focus for anti-bullying week is talking. We will be making lots of time to talk around school, using books with meaning as a stimulus. We will be talking all about how it is okay to be different and unique along with accepting difference in others. The books are as follows:

  • FS - Smeds and Smoors
  • Y1 - Pugicorn
  • Y2 - Be more Bernard
  • Y3 - Woolbur
  • Y4 - Stand Tall Molly Lou Melon & A family is a family, is a family
  • Y5 - Tango makes three
  • Y6 - Julian wants to be a mermaid
Community Book Share
Our community book shares are ready to use! Find one in foundation stage and one in the community room entrance. Please come and take a book to enjoy at home and return it when you're finished! We will gladly accept any books from home so that children can share and enjoy even more stories.
A lovely trip to waterstones with these superstars! They were chosen as our reading champions this term, we had a lovely day out at the bookstore, we all chose a book each and we even got hot chocolate back at school while we read our new books!
Halloween Disco
A few photos from our Halloween disco, we all had a blast!
