We are having a great time.  Just had pasta 🍝 for dinner.

Sorry for the lack of pictures but the signal is very poor in the woods. More to follow tomorrow.

Good night

Update

We have had a lovely lunch cooked on a fire we built and lit together. We are about to go and build our shelters 😀

We are all having a great time.

Year 4 Bushcraft 2019

It’s almost upon us!

Please find attached a loose MEL for the two days. Some of the activities may change depending on the weather.

Bushcraft MEL

I have had confirmation that children will not require a packed lunch for the first day.

Children are not permitted to bring any food with them at all as this will attract animals to the camp.

Please ensure that children do not bring any electronics with them. A good book is all they will require for the journey and any quiet time.

Luggage

Please feel free to use a large holdall or suitcase for all of their belongings and sleeping systems. There is plenty of room on the bus.

I would advise that all children bring a backpack to carry their coat and water bottle for both days. I have spare backpacks if required.

Dress

Children are to arrive at school on Thursday in non school uniform. I would advise that children wear walking trousers or tracksuit bottoms (No jeans) so they are comfortable for the duration.

Please ensure children have a spare set of clothing to change into if they get wet.

We have spoken to the children today about layering their clothing to keep warm. This means that you wear a base layer (t-shirt) followed by a second layer (jumper/hoodie/fleece) and an outer layer (warm, waterproof coat).

Please only send clothing that you are happy to get very dirty.

GDPR

Please ensure you have signed and returned your GDPR consent form prior to the trip. I will keep you all updated with our adventure along the way including pictures.

Please bear in mind that I can only take pictures if I have parental consent.

Timings

As you will see on the MEL we will now be leaving school at around 09:10 on Thursday morning so please feel free to stay and wave goodbye to the children.

We will be returning to school at around 16:00 on the Friday, however I will keep you all updated on our journey via the app.

If you are having trouble with any of the equipment (roll mat etc), I have spares so please let me know and I will endeavor to help.

If you have any more questions or concerns please ask a member of the year 4 team.

 

 

Year 1 School Trip

Year 1 and The Hub are looking forward to their trip on Thursday. Please can children wear school jumpers, long trousers and trainers or wellies depending on the weather. If the weather is hot please put suncream on the children and provide a hat and water bottle. Children will also need a packed lunch.  It may also be advisable to bring a raincoat. Thank you, Year 1 and The Hub team.

KS1 Christmas Performance: Costumes

Thank you to all parents/carers for providing their child/children with costumes for tonight’s performance. However, as a number of children have forgotten their costumes, could I please ask that parents and carers bring in these costumes as soon as possible as we are performing to the rest of the school at 2:00 this afternoon.

I appreciate that some of you will be unable to do this due to work commitments. Children without costumes for this afternoon’s performance will wear their uniform instead.

Regards

Mr Lamb

Operation Encompass

19th November 18

Dear Parent/Carer

OPERATION ENCOMPASS

This is a reminder that our school is participating in the Operation Encompass partnership scheme between local schools, academies, colleges, nurseries, community health agencies and Cleveland Police.

Operation Encompass was set up to provided early reporting to school about any domestic abuse incidents that occur outside of school hours to which a young person attending our school has been exposed, and which might then have an impact on them attending school the following day.  This information will be shared on school days during term time and, when incidents occur on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday, the police will contact the relevant school the following Monday.

Information will only be shared with the school by the police where it is identified that a young person was present, witnessed or was involved in a domestic abuse incident.

A nominated member of school staff known as a Designated Safeguarding Lead Officer (DSLO) has been trained to liaise with the police.  They will be able to use information that has been shared with them in confidence, to ensure that the school is able to make provision for possible difficulties experienced by children or their families.  The DSLO will keep this information confidential, and will only share it on a need to know basis, for instance, to teaching staff for the child or young person.  It will not be shared with other pupils.

Operation Encompass was first introduced in Plymouth in February 2011, and has proved very effective in providing appropriate and timely support to young people affected by domestic abuse.  This initiative has been implemented across the whole of the Cleveland Police area.  If you would like some more information about it, you can view it online at www.operationencompass.org

We are keen to offer the best support possible for our pupils and a recent review of Operation Encompass showed that is it beneficial and supportive for all those involved.

Kind regards
