Finance and Personnel Committee Update

The Finance and Personnel Governors met this week and without doubt the highlight was again talking to children! We invited a group of children with additional needs from across the school to talk to us about their learning and the support they receive. It was reassuring for Governors to hear how enthusiastic they are about school.

Schools across the country are under immense pressure to remain financially stable. Governors scrutinised the Newdale budgets and discussed ideas moving forward. Measures that will be taken will ensure we are financially stable and yet, will not affect the quality of education for our children.

My Green Day and Red Nose Day

This weeks focus learning was all about looking after our planet 🌍 with the book of the week being ‘ My Green Day ‘

The children in Mighty oaks explored this topic with a sensory tuff tray that had recycling ♻️ materials in there to sort out, plastics, paper, card and wood set on a mini street road to a recycling centre.
🚶🏽‍♀️They went on a walk to base camp with the litter pickers and bin bags to see how much rubbish they could find, sadly lots on the school ground.

Our walk to the Dingle was a fine day to look for the early signs of spring 🌸 with the buds starting to show and the wild flowers coming up. We walked all around the Dingle pools talking about being safe around the waters and visited the local Lawley park. So much fun seeing them having fun while learning.

Cooking club copied the book and made some yummy muffins, teaching the children about where the ingredients came from and weighing them out for the mixture. 🧁

Our art classes involved painting daffodils 🌼 teaching the children how the flower grows and growth and decay.
Thank you to those that brought in old socks for the sock puppets, the children really enjoyed their socks being turned into something they could play with. 🧦 others used different colour felts, wool and buttons to create their very own puppet.

Ending the week by joining in with the great charity Red Nose Day to raise awareness around poverty, learning about children that are not as lucky as they are.
After School club played some fun games for this and did some great colouring on their design sheets. 🔴

Thank to to every one that donated to the Charity 🙏

Next weeks book will be ‘ Dear Zoo ‘

And I’m very excited to see the animal man with the children. 🕷️🦎 on the 20th
join in with our lessons this week by sending in photos of your pets via the evidence me app. We would love to share these with the children’s groups.
