As we approach the Christmas holidays, we look forward to sharing class performances with parents before the end of term. We will be streaming video recordings via Microsoft Teams this year. Instructions will be emailed closer to the time; your child’s class teacher will also inform you of the date and time of the performance. We are unable to put the video on the website due to a range of restrictions that are in place. All you require is a device to attend the performance, such as a smartphone, iPad, tablet or laptop.

One of our Year 5 children has written a fantastic poem called ‘Lockdown’. The vocabulary used in this poem is very powerful, and I think it is something that we can all relate to in some way. Well done on this creative and well crafted piece of homework!
We have been fundraising this week for @StrayAidDogs. This event was organised by one of our Year 6 children, and all of the children from @westcornforthps had lots of fun baking, and buying, biscuits and cakes for a great cause! Thank you to all of the parents, carers and children who donated money to the chosen charity, we managed to raise £120 for Stray Aid.
Hopefully, all being well, the setup of Office 365, as our online education platform, should be completed next week. This will mean that children will be able to access our online education platform from home, and access lessons with their teacher. We will use this alongside other appropriate online platforms (Mathletics, myON, Tapestry etc.) to ensure children can access their curriculum from home. Teachers will be able to provide feedback through the appropriate channels to ensure children continue to make progress whilst working from home.
Before allowing your child to access their Office 365 account, please ensure that you have read and understood the following policies (as they also apply to online learning from home):
In order to ensure online teaching sessions are of the highest quality, please also be aware that lessons will be recorded for monitoring purposes.
Have a look at our new website.
We look forward to welcoming all children back to school on Wednesday 2nd September. Children will be expected to wear full school uniform. In addition to this, children will also need to bring their own water bottles with them to school.
As we come to the end of term, we are celebrating all of the work that the children have completed over the final week. It has been lovely to see that children have completed transition activities and are looking forward to being in the next stage of their educational journey in September. We would like to say a huge thank you to the children, parents and carers for sharing their home learning with us during the fourteenth week of school closures. We hope you enjoy the final Feel Good Fridays video, and have a fun break over the Summer Holidays. See you in September!
Reception graduation this year looked a bit different to normal, but it was still lovely to be able to see the children in their cap and gowns, and to present them with their certificates. It has been lovely to watch the children grow and progress during their time in the Early Years, and we are all so proud of the things that they have achieved. We are sad to see the children move on, but we wish them all the best for the rest of their educational journey.
