Dear parents and carers
Despite the work that went on to clear both sites yesterday, the freezing temperatures last night have led to conditions that are too dangerous for transport, pupils and staff to safely gain access to the site. We aim to reopen tomorrow, Wednesday 13th, and will keep you informed.
Dear Parents and Carers
The enterprise stall today was a huge success. Not only did our KS4 students plan products that would appeal to the public, they used their excellent sales skills to sell them. This work all contributes to their ASDAN award, which students are working towards throughout the year. We will report the money raised in next week’s newsletter. A huge thank you to all the students and staff for their hard work on this.
There have also been two successful pantomime trips over the last week. One last Thursday and one yesterday. Students from both sites went to see Jack and The Beanstalk at the Oxford Playhouse and hugely enjoyed it. On Thursday, our post 16 students cooked lunch for John Watson School post 16 students. This is now the fourth lunch our two schools have held together and they are getting to know each other well.
We are now in full preparation for our Christmas play next Friday and classes have been learning about Christmas in different countries. Please come along if you can. We start on the primary site at 9.30 and there will be refreshments afterwards for any parents and carers who would like to stay behind to discuss fundraising ideas.
Have a great weekend
School will be closed Monday 11th December as conditions are too dangerous following the heavy snow fall. School is expected to re-open at the usual time on Tuesday.
Message from the Headteacher
Dear Parents and Carers,
In addition to usual lessons, we have had another busy week baking for Children in Need and making items to sell at the Christmas enterprise stall at Cowley Centre on 8th December. It may feel a little early but we are getting in the Christmas spirit and classes have begun rehearsing for the Christmas play, which will be on 15th December at 9.30am at Primary site, Further details will follow.
Key stage 1 classes are also extremely lucky to have the Jacqueline Du Pré centre in on Monday to do a music workshop and they will visit the centre later this term to continue their work.
Have a wonderful weekend
With all good wishes
