A Message from Mr Nation

I know all the parents, carers and children will have noticed all the extra effort the Castle Team have put in over the past two weeks. They always go over and above and it doesn't go unnoticed. They have organised and attended many after school events that it is easy to forget that they too have families at home! Cross Country, Stargazing, Youth Speaks, Bikeability, training and courses that were held after school hours, clubs and Castle's very own performance of Peter Pan - all in two weeks! That's as well as their day job! Thank you Castle Team on behalf of everyone.  What a busy start to the second half of the Spring Term. Bikeability was a huge success last week. The children represented Castle School brilliantly and were a credit to themselves. Not only were the children inspired to cycle more, Mrs Abbott and Miss Dodge were also full of joy having spent two days on their bicycles! Thank you to Mrs Knobbs, Mrs Abbott, Miss Dodge and Mrs Szarmach for organising and assisting with this important event. Mrs Szarmach has also been busy behind the scenes organising Forest School sessions with the Ham Hill Rangers. Some of the children have the opportunity to go to Ham Hill and carve their initials into a wooden leaf to finish their project on the natural playground near Fairy Glen. What a great way to make their mark for years to come! Mr Penn organised for a company to come to Castle last week and hold a performance based on e-safety. It was an engaging and thought provoking session. Please continue to support your child to be safe online, even when they’re playing games with their friends. Finally, a huge thank you to all who supported and attended the Stargazing evening last Wednesday. It was a fantastic event and the staff went over and above as always. A BIG THANK YOU to Mr Main for all his help this week. As you all know, Charlie gives up much of his time for the children (and staff) at Castle and we're very grateful.   Categories: 1 CategorySchool News

Christmas has arrived at Castle! We have post boxes located throughout the school for the children to post their Christmas cards for friends and staff. All classes have been busy rehearsing their performances and I’m particularly impressed with the children’s confidence when standing on stage in front of a live audience - what confident and competent children they are! Thank you to parents and carers for supporting the children learn their lines and lyrics. Staff have put in lots of additional time to ensure these performances go smoothly for the children - thank you! In addition, I would like to thank Mr Main for all the support he has given the school this term - he is a valued member of the Castle team. Finally, thank you FOCs for coming along and serving tea, coffee and mince pies. We look forward to the Year 5 and 6 performances next week. Last Friday, we welcomed a member of staff from Carymoor Recycling Centre to Castle School. He led an assembly to all children and then visited some of the classrooms where the children participated in a workshop based on recycling and caring for the environment. This was an important message for all the children and they were very energised to ensure we do all we can to help the environment. As always, our visitor had nothing but positive things to say about our super school. We have a busy final week of term before the Christmas break. Next Monday we will be holding a Christingle Service in the school hall for Year 5 and 6 and their parents. Thank you to those of you who have replied. If you haven’t yet done so, this is a lovely opportunity to spend some quality time with your loved one/s at school. I’d like to take this opportunity to notify you of a recent update to the school’s website. Under the ‘safeguarding’ tab, there is an ‘e-safety’ section. You’ll find several useful resources which provide guidance and information to help keep children safe online. Finally, I would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year.  Categories: 1 CategorySchool News
