Parkland Post – 17th June

Parkland Post – 17th June

This week

Welcome to this week’s instalment of the Parkland Post!  What a scorcher of a week it has been, our children have been loving playing out safely in the sun and have been taking part in some outdoor learning too.


Our attendance this week and last has been much lower than normal and I’m sure you know how important it is for your children to be in school and taking part in learning.  Please ensure that you send your children into school unless they are poorly; even if they just feel a little bit under the weather.  It is better to send them in as more often than not, they feel much brighter once they get busy with their learning.  We also want to remind you that holidays during term time can’t be authorised and should be taken during the school holidays.  It would be amazing if we can improve our whole school attendance next week – any class who have above 90% next week will get a spin on our attendance wheel!  Year 2 enjoyed their non-uniform day today as a treat for their high attendance – well done!

Skills Builder Home Challenge

Well done to Connor Sutcliffe in Year 5 who sent in his ideas for the home challenge with some fabulous ways of helping you get to sleep.

This week’s challenge is again linked to our skill of Problem Solving and can be found below:


If you manage to complete this activity, send us a photo of your ideas via our Facebook Messenger page and you will receive 10 Parkland Points and appear on our wall of fame!

Assessment Week

Next week, children in Years 1, 3, 4 and 5 will be taking part in some assessments.  It is really important that they come to school every day and that they are on time.  These assessments help to form the end of year outcomes which will be shared on the end of year report for your child.

And finally...

Miss Unwin leaves us today to begin a new job working with West Yorkshire Police.  Whilst we are going to miss her incredibly at Co-op Academy Parkland, we know that she has always wanted to work for the police and we wish her the very best of luck with it.  We would like to thank her for her hard work and her caring and nurturing nature with our children – you will be missed.

We hope you all have a wonderful weekend and we will see you bright and early on Monday morning!
