Parkland Post – 10th June

Parkland Post – 10th June

This week

What a wonderful first week back we have had!  It has been such a busy time at Parkland and our children have returned with big smiles on their faces ready to learn which is fantastic to see.  Your child’s teachers will be sharing the curriculum webs next week which details what they will be learning about over the next half term and how you can support them at home.  Homework menus will also be sent home which link to the wider curriculum subjects they are focusing on.  

Family Breakfast

On Tuesday 14th June at 8am, we are running the next of our Family Breakfasts which is a great chance for you to fill up on tasty pastries, butties and cereal whilst chatting to school staff and other families.  We loved welcoming everyone to the last one and can’t wait to do the same next week.

Phonics Screener and Multiplication Check

Over the next few weeks, there are a range of important assessments happening in school which will give your children an opportunity to show off what they have learnt.  Each year group will also be working hard on perfecting their writing so it is incredibly important that they are in school and on time every day – please support us in this by getting your children to school so they don’t miss out on essential learning.

New Reception Parent Meeting – Thursday 16th June at 9am

As we begin to think ahead to the new academic year, we will be holding our Reception Parent Meeting for children who will be going into Reception in September on Thursday 16th June at 9am.  Mrs Wierzbianski, Miss Carter, Mr Barnes, Mrs Robinson and Mrs Murgatroyd will be there to welcome you and give you lots of information that will help your child (and you) to have a smooth start to the year.  It will be your opportunity to see our provision, meet our staff and ask those all important questions that you may have.

Skills Builder Homezone Challenge

Our new skill for this half term is Problem Solving so this weekend’s challenge is a good one!  If you complete it, share it with us on our Facebook Messenger.  Your child will have their photo on our Skills Builder Wall of Fame and they will receive 10 Parkland Points.  We are looking forward to seeing what you come up with.  We’re going to take the best ideas and put them into a leaflet which will help our school community with tips for getting a good night’s sleep.

We hope you enjoy the weekend and that you manage to do something fun outside – Mrs Wierzbianski is looking forward to a BBQ with her family and walking our school dog of course and Ms Pascoe will be enjoying the sunshine with her children and out running! We will see you bright and early on Monday morning ready for another week of learning.
