A Message from Mr Nation

Welcome back! I hope you all had a wonderful half term.  Our new ‘Gateway’ for this half term is ‘Citizenship’ and across the school, through Geography, the children will be learning about their role as a local and global citizen. From understanding our local geography and how we can support our local community in Year 1, to comparing our village to villages further afield by looking at India and closer to home with our European neighbours. Further up the school they will look more closely at the physical and human similarities and differences between such localities and how these impact on what citizenship involves in those parts of the world. We will also be considering the arising environmental implications of how we live and our responsibilities as global citizens to such issues. How are you an active citizen in the local or global community? Please share and discuss at home. I know you’ve all been patiently waiting for an update regarding Forest School provision. Rest assured we are in the final stages of organising quality outdoor provision for all of the children at Castle Primary School. In addition, we’re keen to further enhance the Physical Education for the children. To this end, we’re organising a company to work with us to enhance the PE we already offer.  We welcomed a film crew into school this week. They were filming for a project that will (hopefully)  be shared among various film festivals and centred around a key child/children. Permission was sought from parents of those children involved in the recording so please don’t worry - we only filmed those for whom we had permission!  We have a short but busy half term ahead. Please ensure you keep updated with the many events which can be found online and on this newsletter.   Categories: 1 CategorySchool News

It’s been lovely to see the children return to school in high spirits and full of enthusiasm.  Classes have been busy working on their ‘Gateway’ of Explorers. From role playing as Christopher Columbus, attempting to create their own successful settlement in Year 5 and 6 and even stepping onto the moon and learning what it was like for Neil Armstrong as a space explorer. It has been lovely to see the excitement and buzz around this new learning. If you haven’t already, please take a look for yourself on Seesaw! Mr Allington very kindly organised for a GB athlete to come to our school this week. On Monday, Rich Parker (a British professional ‘vert’ skater) visited Castle Primary School, led a circuits session with all the children and showed us his skills - by jumping over three members of staff! My thanks to Mr Allington and Rich Parker for such a fantastic morning. A quick reminder about lunch boxes, please can we ensure children have enough in their lunch boxes to fuel them through the day and that these are well balanced, avoiding too many sugary snacks.  Finally, we have a wonderful opportunity for you to become an integral part of Castle Primary School. We’re seeking to increase the numbers of our (currently known as) ‘Ethos and Welfare Committee’. We meet regularly throughout the year and discuss the School’s priorities. If your interested, please get in touch via the school office.   Categories: 1 CategorySchool News
