Some Excellent Y4 Role Models

By Community, Year 4

Some wonderful Y4 girls volunteered to do a litter pick after noticing some rubbish on the floor outside. They helped Mr Hetherington to check the whole school perimeter. Thank you so much for caring about our environment. What stars!

Whole school Geography Fieldwork month!

By FS2, Geography, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5, Year 6

October was “Geography fieldwork month” in St.Alban’s. Fieldwork is where you go outside the classroom and find things out for yourself. Over the last month, our students have had the opportunity to explore the local area and learn in a more practical, hands-on way in geography.

Each class was given a different enquiry question that they had to try and answer using a variety of progressive fieldwork skills. Children across school completed maps, surveys, time sampling, tallys, pictograms and digital mapping linked to their enquiry question. Children then used the information that they had gathered to draw their own conclusions.

Today, each class had the opportunity to present their findings to the rest of the school. Children were very adept at explaining what they did and what they found out. Well done St.Alban’s- we are all geographers!

By English, Letters to Parents, Newsletter, Writing, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5, Year 6

On Thursday 16th November, we will be hosting a parent workshop explaining how we teach handwriting at St Alban’s.

From the first day of school, we pay particular attention to good writing habits. By the end of the session you will know what we mean by BBC, TNT and lots of other useful tips.

We look forward to welcoming you in the school hall at 2:15pm. Grandparents are also welcome.

Thank you,

School Uniform Shop

By Community, FS1, FS2, Fund Raising, House Jericho, Letters to Parents, Lost Property, PSHE, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5, Year 6

We are truly grateful for all of your uniform donations. Every night Mrs Nightingale restocks the clothes line and they are selling fast.

In assembly, we have discussed with the children about how cool it is to reuse and recycle- we hope that the school uniform shop will send out a clear message that they can make a difference to the world we live in.

Thank you,
The St Alban’s Eco Warriors!

Swapping Card Games – Playtimes

By Community, Dining, PSHE, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5, Year 6

Dear parents and carers,

When children have a proper break during playtime, they tend to perform better in their classes. With this in mind, we are constantly working on making playtimes more enjoyable for all our children.

We have noticed that many children express a keen interest in card games and swapping. If your child would like to take part in card games, then we kindly request that they read this letter.

In the upcoming weeks, we have planned various activities to enhance playtime for the children. Our focus will be on teaching them clapping songs such as “The Sailor Went to Sea, Sea, Sea,” as well as introducing games like French skipping and cat’s cradle. These activities aim to engage the children, promote social interaction, and provide them with a diverse range of play options.

Thank you for your continued support.
