An Achievement-Packed Week!
Apparently, this Monday was Blue Monday. This is a name given to the day in January claimed to be the most depressing day of the year! Having been informed that this was the case, Huntingtower set about changing the perception from Blue Monday to Huntingtower-Blue Monday and as you know, at Huntingtower we are always positive! As a result, we have had a very successful week celebrating many home achievements as well as those in the academy. I have been particularly impressed with some well constructed, detailed pieces of writing. I have even gained some excellent pieces of work for my office display and several children are now many merits richer. I look forward to seeing more of the pupils' work over the next few weeks. Please be aware that your child should soon be bringing home a letter inviting you to come and meet with their teacher in the last week before half term. You will also be able to look at their books and see the progress they have made this year.
We have faced many challenges this week with both the weather and the traffic. The icy weather is set to continue for a little while longer and this means that extra care should be taken on pathways around the academy and streets in our immediate environment. Thanks goes to Mr Moore and Mr Wallace, our Site Managers for ensuring that the pathways are gritted to the best of their ability. Please also remind the children to bring hats and gloves with them as the days continue to remain chilly!
