Memory is really helpful for learning to read; remembering letter sounds, common and tricky words that don’t fit a pattern, important bits of a story, character names etc. Card games such as letter or word flashcards, snap, find the pairs and remember the objects on a tray are fun ways to get that memory switched on and working quickly.
Ensuring your child goes to bed at a reasonable time makes such a difference to how they engage in school.
Children aged 5 to 12 need 10 – 11 hours of sleep each night. According to a great deal of research, children who get this required amount achieve much better in school and engage more readily in activities. Struggling to organise a structured bedtime routine? Our Family Home Link Worker, Mrs Vicky Nash is available to help you. Look at the LAPs page for how else Mrs Nash can help you.
Today, we welcome three Ofsted inspectors who will be spending today and tomorrow with us. We are looking forward to them seeing and hearing about the many learning opportunities your children have here at Flying Bull. The lead inspector is Ms Di Wilkinson. Following on from the letter that was sent home yesterday, if you are a registered parent or carer of a pupil at our school, you can tell Ofsted your views of the school by completing their online survey. Click on the link below:
Please complete this survey by 11am today. Many thanks.
If you are unable to compete the online survey, it may be possible for you to speak to an inspector during the inspection, for instance at the start of the school day, or to pass on messages to the inspectors if you are unable to speak to them in person.
Wow 6B! Super well done for all being here everyday last week, gaining you 100% attendance. It is great that you didn’t miss any of your very important learning.
The whole school enjoyed listening to each year group in assembly this morning, finding what and how you learnt during our Anti-bullying Week last week. I especially enjoyed the film clip and have displayed some children’s work in my office. All children seemed to have learnt lots more about being safe whilst working / learning / playing on-line. Keep safe!
A big thankyou to all the parents who came to watch Year 3′s assembly. It was lovely to have so many of you turn up to see your child’s performance!

Today, as part of Anti-Bullying Week, we have been learning about how to keep ourselves safe using ‘Social Media’. This can be anything from a games consol, to a laptop or tablet, or a mobile phone. We have been learning how to protect ourselves from anyone who may be unkind to us or have unkind intentions. Please make sure your child is aware of the dangers of using technology to communicate with their friends and family and check that all social networking sites have the privacy settings on high.
