NEWSLETTER 14th September 2012 This week began with a values assembly all about thinking about others and not taking them for granted. The children responded well to the story and were able to see that sometimes in life we all take someone for granted, not because we mean to but because we get wrapped up in our own things. I do hope you ask the children about a Monday assembly and talk about what the story might have been telling them. Class 1 sent me some interesting letters about why they wouldn’t be at school! I’m not sure that you know this but it seems your children are leading double lives! Some were going to be away because they had to recover the Queen’s jewels or investigate a bank robbery, others had aunts who had been kidnapped and needed to rescue them. Some were even off to space! Poor Miss Harkin’s attendance figures will be dreadful and she’ll have the attendance officer knocking at the door! Class 2 continued their work on values using a computer program called Pivot to create animations. They showcased their work this morning and I was lucky to watch a number of exciting representations of how we can respect each other, the environment and ourselves. Very impressed I must say! We shall be using this program across school all next week as part of a bid to increase the use of new software. We are part of a Creative ICT school cluster and as such will be involved in inter-school projects to do with all things technological. The first will be to create short films and video clips to highlight learning from each school which will be aired in all the schools as a kind of mass class assembly. Teachers from other schools in the group will also be visiting us to see how well we integrate ICT throughout the curriculum...something that other schools struggle to do. HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!
