Curriculum Evening 11/19/2019

Thank you to all of you who came to the curriculum evening on Wednesday. It was fantastic to see so many of you. Feedback has been extremely positive and I am really pleased that you found it useful. As many of you commented, we have spent a lot of time ensuring that our vison, aims and intent address the needs of our children and provide them with the skills and knowledge they need to support their learning journey. The PowerPoint from the evening and the associated resources are now on the website.

 I really hope that you see all that we shared in practise when you visit or come to parents evening. Please let us know how your children are responding to our teaching. I had some feedback today from a parent whose child, in year one, had told her how he was going to try to be more resilient and have a go an activity that he had previously found difficult!

 If you have any further questions about what we discussed please do let me know.

Have a lovely weekend.

Welcome back!

Welcome back!

I hope you have all had a super summer holiday although sunny weather now seems a bit of a distant memory! The children have all settled in really well and have started the new term with lots of enthusiasm and energy. A very warm welcome to our new parents, children and staff; we hope you will be very happy with us here at Yardley.

As I wrote earlier in the week, over the past few months, we have been working very hard on redesigning and refining our curriculum and we are looking forward to sharing this with you our Curriculum Evening on Wednesday (7pm at Yardley). Look out for the letter your children have written to you today inviting you to attend. I hope to see as many of you there as possible.

We are all very excited about this year and the range of events experiences we have planned. You should now have received a list of dates. Our sporting fixture list will follow, as will a letter about clubs.

Have a lovely weekend!
