Another week of amazing learning at Fountain. There was a noticeable buzz around the school on Monday and Tuesday as pupils were immersed into their next learning topic!
Year 5 had the shock of their lives when their classroom was transported back to Victorian times, with the children seated in rows, standing to attention and writing in chalk. Year 6 were transported even further back to the stone age, were they scavenged for materials around our school grounds. Year 3 cracked viking codes whilst year 4 went back to 1940's Britain. Year 1 lined up in their medical gloves ready to work out what had made the teddy bears in their classroom sick. Year 2 used our fabulous school grounds to find out what was living there. Our Nursery children continue to settle well and are learning all about nursery routines. Our reception children are also settling well and have been exploring 'big school' this week - which included all of them coming to meet me in my office; it was a little bit of a squeeze!
Please ask your children about their new topic and have a look at the class blogs for further details about this week.
Thank you to everyone of you that made it to our open session, we hope you found it useful to see the classrooms and some of the learning that has already happened this year. We hope to make this a regular occurrence and welcome any feedback.
We sent a letter out early in the year regarding a vacancy for a parent governor. If you are interested or would like to know more please catch me in the morning or leave a message with our admin team. You may also have noticed a Police visit at the top of the school drive. We are looking at ways to make getting into school safer and the Police are supporting us with parking near the school drive and gates. We appreciate it is difficult near school as Fountain Street is a busy road, but request that you are considerate of our neighbours and think of the safety of all our children when parking close to school or dropping children off. Please note that the school car park can only be accessed by blue badge holders. Thank you for your support in keeping our children safe! See you next week!
