Our Vision
We believe that our children should have the aspiration and opportunity to ‘Live life in all its fullness and ‘Shine like stars in the sky’.
New this week…

Parent meetings next week
Parent meeting for KS2 (Year 3,4,5 and 6) about PSHE
Monday 13th November at 17:00.
Parents of children in years 3/4/5/6 are invited to a meeting in school on Monday 13th November at 5pm. The meeting will be about the Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) curriculum.
PSHE helps pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. These skills and attributes help pupils to stay healthy, safe and prepare them for life in modern Britain.
There will be a presentation on the curriculum followed by an opportunity to ask questions about this and how to further support your child with any questions they may have.

Parent meeting Year 2,3,4,5 and 6 about Reading
There will be a meeting for parents about reading on Wednesday 15th November at 5.30 at St Nicholas school or Thursday 16th November at 3.30pm at Kirkby Malzeard School. Either meetings is open to parents at both schools. This is for all parents of children in Years Two, Three, Four, Five and Six. We will be discussing everything you need to know about how your child learns to read in school and how you can support them at home.  We will also be looking at the exciting changes that are happening within our KS2 reading.  This is an important meeting and we encourage people to come and find out more.
Help needed!
We are keen to further develop the wildlife area at the back of our outdoor classroom and the raised beds outside of the hall. The children have lots of exciting ideas for these, but we really need some help to develop these.
If any parents have some time to give to help develop these, or know someone in our community who could help, we would be really grateful for their support.
This could be by running an afterschool club alongside a staff member from school, or giving some time each week during the school day to help.
If you are able to help, or know someone who is, please contact the school office.
A note from our School Council and Wellbeing Ambassadors:
For this year's Children In Need 2023, Joe Wicks has set us a challenge to do 1,000 "bearpees" or more. Each class will be taking part in this every day for our fitness break next week - Asteroids will do 15, Comets will do 10 and Rockets will do 5 every day. If this goes to plan, we hope to achieve over 1,000 "bearpees" over the week. If you feel able to sponsor your child, they will be sent home with a sponsor form today. If you prefer, your child may bring into school a small donation on Friday 17th November when all children and staff are invited to wear fitness or sportswear for the day. Donations or sponsor money can also be made via ParentPay if this is more convenient. Via the following link

Forest School
Asteroids (Years 3,4,5,6) and EYFS (Nursery and Reception) will be doing forest school every Wednesday afternoon. Please ensure your child comes to school with appropriate clothing and waterproofs.
