Happy Monday !

Hopefully we are going to have some warm weather as we have plenty of outside events planned over the coming weeks. Tomorrow is the Borough Athletics tournament held at the Linford Christie Stadium; traditionally one of the highlights of our sporting calendar. We will be cheering on the 33 children in our Athletics Team and would be grateful for any support. The event starts at 1:30 p.m.

Secondly, a huge well done to our brilliant choir who performed on Friday in the Primary Vocal Showcase! They shared our two pieces and also listened to three other local choirs. If you would like to hear us perform, please come to the lower hall at 3pm on Thursday. Alternatively, please click below to see and hear us perform.

Orchestra Trip to Kensington Town Hall

A huge well done to our orchestra who participated in a performance with 130 students from schools across the borough. They rehearsed and performed 3 pieces of music which they had never seen before all in one day! Here are some videos of their performance – well done for such an amazing achievement!

HAPPY RED NOSE DAY

(something very special at the end of this post, so read to the end)

We’ve had a fabulous day. Thank you so much for all your support in preparing your children for this special fund raisiing day. We will let you know next week how much we raised.

A special Well Done must go to all the performers in our talent show. They all put so much effort into making their acts special and we loved every minute of the show.

A few Red Nose Day Facts……

  • The first ever Red Nose Day took place in 1988 on the BBC and was hosted by Lenny Henry. It raised £15 million.
  • In 2015, over 17,000 schools took part in Red Nose Day and raised over £7.1 million.

Since Comic relief began, all the money raised has helped:

  • to provide life-saving vaccines to over 2.4 million children.
  • more than 1.2 million people into formal and informal education.
  • over 8 million people living in urban slums to improve their living conditions.

And finally; our gift to you……….when everyone has gone home, this is what we get up to …….!

Have a great weekend and Happy Red Nose Day 2017

Thank you so much to everyone for getting involved by singing, donating and supporting our community to raise money for the East African Crisis Appeal. A special thank you must go to the wonderful group of parents and carers who organised this event. We are very grateful.

Attendance update

Congratulations to Griffin class for winning the Key Stage 2 attendance prize this week! An excellent achievement! A huge congratulations to Goblin class for winning the Key Stage 1 attendance prize for the second week in a row! These classes had the highest percentage of children with 100% attendance last week.

We are currently on 95.2% as a whole school. Our aim is to be in line with the national average of 96%. Please keep working alongside us to achieve this goal. Many thanks for your support.

Healthy schools update

As part of our commitment to a healthier school, we are always trying to promote physical activity. The ladies at MEND have provided some ideas for parents to play games with their children on the link below. They have also added some information about different beans and pulses that can be used as a source of protein and would be a fantastic option for a packed lunch snack!

Perhaps something to try at the weekend.

See you all on Monday

Friday 3rd March 2017

We had a fabulous World Book Day yesterday and have thoroughly enjoyed a whole week of book based activities including visits to Daunt Books; Extreme Reading Photograph Competition; Class Book Corner makeovers; daily DEAR (drop everything and read) sessions; Reading Cafes; Book Swaps; Bring a Book to Life Dance Workshop and a visit from the author Rob Lloyd Jones, to name just a few of the activities. A huge thank you to Ms Clare and Ms McCrindle for all their amazing enthusiasm and hard work to ensure that the week was a success.

Next week we have our Parent Consultations. It is vital that you have made an appointment to meet with your child’s teachers so that you can discuss their progress at this important point of the year. Please ensure that you contact the school to secure a time if you have not already done so.

Finally please remember to follow us on Instagram #ogpschool and Twitter @ogpsw10

Thank you for all your endless support. Have a great weekend and see you all on Monday
