We're on Top of the World!
What a fantastic start to Term 4! Before the start of the half term holiday, Mrs Clack our Reading Leader shared a reading challenge as part of our World Book Day celebrations. We have been blown away by how enthusiastic the children have been and many thanks goes to you, their families who have supported them. We have particularly loved the tweets! With just under a week to go, we can't wait to see what else is possible. Remember to remind your child to hand in their completed form on World Book Day so that they can be in with a chance to win some great prizes!
We are now in the latter half of the academic year and I am always impressed with how much our pupils have learned. In my assembly on Monday, we explored our Priory Trust value of curiosity. If I asked you the question, "Can you think of some who is famous for being curious?' what would your answer be? I was really impressed by some of our pupils answers; Isaac Newton, David Attenborough, Charles Darwin, Mary Anning and Stephen Hawking which were all fantastic suggestions. I'm sure this will make Mrs Stephenson, our Science Leader really proud and I know that she is excited for National Science week which will begin on Monday, 11th March.
There are so many events coming up at the moment, that I would recommend keeping a close eye on Parent Hub. We have World Book Day next Thursday (7th March) where we have invited all the children (and staff) to come dressed as their favourite book character, as well as Comic Relief on Friday, 15th March. Please see Tower Times for more details. Merchandise will be for sale at the academy from Tuesday, 6th March. All proceeds will be donated to Comic Relief. I would like to thank you for your continued support in with helping our pupils take part in events that contribute to wider communities than just the one that they live in.
