We are resourceful learners!

This week, we have been working on being a ‘resourceful learner’; in particular, we have been looking at questioning. We discussed the types of questions that we ask and considering the power of questions. We spoke about closed questions, which allow us to respond quickly, open questions, which allow us to be creative and probing questions which allow us to gain a deeper understanding of an idea. Well done to all those children who have been thinking about the questions they ask and reframing or choosing different questions that allow them to better understand their learning.

Rainbows this week are: Andrea & Ursula (Beech), Ella-Rae & Gracie (Holly), Tamila & Tyren (Birch), Romy & Alex (Lime), Elouise & Lucy (Hawthorn), Lena & Alima (Rowan), Amario & Taylan (Cedar), Diana & Lily (Hazel), Leonor & Alycia (Willow), Nicky & Florence (Sycamore), Ruby & Alesha (Oak), Emma & Rio (Larch).
Book Week 2021
Next week is Book Week and we have some amazing workshops and assemblies with published authors to inspire our writing. All assemblies are at 9:30am each day; please see class blogs for further details. Children are welcome to dress up on World Book Day (Thursday 4th March) as their favourite character if they wish. On this day, we will have a special assembly led by Miss Binks, our English Lead for the Trust. Many thanks to Mrs Parker, who has organised an amazing and inspiring week of reading and writing for us to enjoy!

Wraparound Care Provision – Breakfast and After School Club Bookings

As part of the wider opening of Cypress school, our Breakfast Club and After School Club will be also be available to all pupils from March 8th. https://www.pegasusacademytrust.org/breakfast-and-after-school-care. Parents can now book on a ‘ad hoc’ basis but bookings must be made by lunchtime the day before; we can no longer accept any bookings at the end of the school day. This is to ensure we adhere to safety guidelines. Please be aware that if your child attends the Breakfast or After School childcare, this heightens the risk of your child/ren being asked to self isolate as your child/ren will be in contact with more children on those days.
