Learning together in Reception
A huge thank you to the parents who came along and joined in with Reception’s ‘Learning Together’ sessions. We hope you gained an insight into part of your child’s school day and were able to take away some of the teaching strategies used in the classroom to further support your child at home. The children really enjoyed having their parents in the classroom. Nursery ‘Learning Together’ sessions will take place in Spring 2 and a new date for Yellow class will be confirmed shortly.
With the Spring term in full flow, it is easy to overlook what a super lead up to the Christmas break we had, with several shows that were exceptionally well attended by parents and carers. The outstanding efforts of staff and children resulted in performances that left us with some very special memories.
Over the past few days, the international news will doubtless have affected the thinking of many in the Montpelier school community. I therefore took the opportunity to re-read the school’s statement on British Values and reflect upon the commitment to our tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs through the celebration of similarities and differences. Most importantly, I reaffirmed my commitment – and that of our staff and governors – to ensuring that all we hold dear is protected and valued to continue making our school a safe and positive place for our children.
