We are delighted to inform you that we are bringing STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) clubs to your child’s school. STEM clubs are a fantastic way to engage and excite your child about Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.
We will be running STEM clubs on a Thursday after school, starting on Thursday 10th January for 6 weeks, and these will be open to children in Year 3, 4, 5 and Year 6. For further information please visit: www.thestemworkshop.co.uk.
The STEM Workshops work closely with schools to develop exciting projects to get children enthused and excited about STEM. The founder of The STEM Workshop and leader of the club, Mrs Leanne Mee, has worked in education for over 16 years, both leading and teaching STEM and passionate about ensuring that all children are exposed to a quality STEM education.
STEM clubs offer a very hands-on approach, enabling children to explore and experiment. Each week they will be involved in designing and making a range of different products, giving them ideas to explore further at home if they wish.
The theme of the first STEM clubs will be ‘automotive’, so they will be exploring and making various vehicles using a range of different materials and techniques. The clubs are guaranteed to build your child’s confidence in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths and allow them to have fun whilst still learning.
Mrs Mee led a fantastic assembly last week and many of the children were very interested in attending the club. There are 20 places available and the total cost for the club is £24, which has been subsided by the school. If you are interested in booking a place for your child, it is first come first served. Please hand the permission slip and payment into the office directly.

Your child would have received an envelope yesterday, which contained details of the Y5 London Residential Trip. Please look through the documents carefully and return back to school as stated on the letter.
Please find attached copies of each document, which were inside the envelope incase you misplace the originals.
Today the children in Key Stage 2 took part in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) assembly and are very excited about the after school club which will be running next term (January 2019). Letters will be sent out with more information by the end of this week.
We are writing this letter to inform you of a whole school learning project around keeping safe online. Over the week, we will be looking specifically at sharing information online using materials provided by the NSPCC. It is important that children are made aware that sometimes sharing online can be dangerous.
Across Year 5 and 6, we will be looking at how sharing information with just one person over social media, can quickly spiral out of control and allow many others to access this information. We will then talk about how this information can allow individuals to exploit your child.
We will be encouraging children to speak out to a trusted adult if they are ever unsure about something whilst online. If you wish to discuss the content of these sessions further, please talk to your child’s teacher.
Like many other schools across the country, we struggle with the number of cars that are around the school at the key drop off and pick up times. The location of the school is difficult by way of access, but we have got to work with what we have.
We have recently had another request from a local resident to support them in ensuring their own private drive is accessible to them when they need it. Lots of people work shifts and need to access their drive at times that clash with our busiest times. They should be able to do this without any concern. Unfortunately I have had reports of our parents being rude to local residents and appearing aggressive in their manner. One parent even asked a local resident, why they were waiting there, when it was quite clear it was to park on their own drive.
I have advised the residents to record number plate identification and report it to the police to deal with. I have also contacted the police to ensure we have more patrols to ensure that we are not continuing to cause an issue to our neighbours. Please can you consider parking further away and walking to drop off and collect or look at car sharing options to support us in this issue.
We really do need to work together to support our wider community.
