Briar Hill Infant School
"Brilliant way of engaging students into their learning. Very dedicated teachers and loving as well. Little one enjoyed it to the max, more of this every year she said! Plus a nice break for parents!"
"Great idea for both social and educational purposes. Fair play to the teachers pulling an all nighter! It clearly wouldn't happen without them. Caelen was so excited all week building up to it and it appears it didn't disappoint. He has had an excellent time, definitely needs doing again!"
"What an amazing experience for the children! Thank you to the school, staff and all of those who made it happen! More Space Camp please! "
"Space Camp was a total hit. What an amazing variety of activities they did. Thank you so much, the children will remember it forever. Hannah's best bit was going outside in the dark to use the telescope. Amazing work, well done to all of the staff and children!"
Please have a look at the photos on the Year 2 class page.
This week children have been told about a Federated Science Competition. They are very excited. Please follow the link to the letter for more information.
In Friday's assembly Miss Clark shared the poem 'Penguins' with Years 1 and 2. If your child would like to learn to recite this poem they can ask their teacher for a copy. The children have until half term if they CHOOSE to do this and will be rewarded with a certificate in a special assembly. Please find the poem in the letters section of the website.
Many thanks for your support.
There has been a few questions about the new reading book scheme, which now colour bands the books. Please can you take the time to read the information letter about the scheme, which can be found on the letters page of the school website. Hopefully this will help you with your queries and to support your child when they are reading.
As we are now trying to be paperless please find your childs' year group newsletter for this half term on the class pages section of the school website.
We hope you all had a good holiday and feel rested. Children return to school on Monday 8th January. See you then.
