Welcome back to school and to our first term as part of the Federation of Denton and Yardley Hastings Primary Schools. I hope you had a wonderful summer break; the children have all settled in really well and look very ready to start the new term with lots of enthusiasm and energy! A very warm welcome to our new staff, parents and children who we hope will be very happy with us.
We have a very exciting curriculum planned this year with lots of new initiatives and themed days and weeks. Our first event will be ‘Federation Day’ next Thursday 13th September when the children will have the opportunity to visit each school to celebrate our collaboration. A more detailed letter about this will follow. This term, we will also be celebrating Modern Foreign Languages day where the children will have the opportunity to experience a variety of different languages and related activities; thank you to those linguists who have offered to help already! On Wednesday 3rd of October we will also be participating in ‘No Pens Wednesday’ following its popularity last year.
World Thinking Day and Founders Day is celebrated annually on 22nd February by all Scouting and Guiding organisations. To support this, we invited all Rainbows, Brownies, Cubs, Scouts and Guides to wear their uniform to school today. It was great to see Mrs Rutter and so many children with their uniforms on.
