If your child is attending a club after school, please ensure they know that they are. I fully understand that getting used to a new routine can take a little while but this week we have had several KS2 children walking home or standing outside wondering why they have not been picked up when they should have been in a club. Whilst we do have club registers, the children are often attending a club that is delivered by another teacher. If the children do not know they are in the club and are not in the place they should be then we have to go looking for them.
We are very excited to have the Little Lifers First Aid company in school on Tuesday morning to deliver a Flat Stan First Aid Workshop to Year 2 and Year 3. This is part of our aim to develop awareness and understanding of health and well-being issues and, over the next year, we will be arranging First Aid workshops for each of the other year groups too.
This morning the children took part in a fire drill. We do these once per term and, as Class 2 have been learning about The Great Fire of London and talking about what to do at home if they hear their smoke alarm, we thought it would be an ideal opportunity to teach our new pupils about fire action at LAMPS. If you haven’t already, chat to your child about what action they should take in the event of a fire in your home.
If your child requires a hot dinner, please ensure that these are booked. There are too many instances of children not having a dinner ordered and coming to school with no packed lunch. Mrs Brettle checks the system every morning and is usually able to identify the children who have a dinner every day but do not have one ordered. When there are pupils who alternate between packed lunch and hot dinner, this is much more difficult and takes time to sort out.
We have had some lovely weather this week and Lindal Park is a great space to run around after school. Unfortunately, though, I have received reports of some unwelcome behaviour from some of our lower KS2 pupils. It is very sad to hear that some children have been rude to adults and have been interfering with the boundaries of the neighboring gardens. Whilst the children are no longer the responsibility of school staff, I would appreciate it if you could remind your children that when they are wearing their school uniform, inappropriate behaviour reflects poorly on us all.
