P.E on Wednesday!

Dragonflies will be doing P.E. tomorrow as we took extra time to finish an English session today.

Please could children come into school in their PE kits again tomorrow.

I appreciate that this may be difficult for those who are taking part in cross country this evening. If they don’t have a complete school kit to wear, perhaps they could wear something as near as possible just for tomorrow.

Apologies and many thanks.

Mrs Heath

Cross Country

Just a quick note for those attending tomorrow’s after-school cross country event at Albrighton Primary School.

 

I (Mr Harley) will be attending the event to organise where/when children will be racing. The first race each week will start at 4:30pm and will be Y3 girls and then Y3 boys and so on.

 

The event organisers have asked all schools to ask parents not to stand or run anywhere on the course and that course marshals will be there to help with this.

 

Just to clarify, there are three events and the final event at Idsall school is on 21st September and not October as stated on the return slip.

WBD – Quiz

 

It’s World Book Day!

Today is World Book Day, a day when children (and adults) all over the world celebrate books and reading. (I’ll let you into a secret….I believe everyday is World Book Day!)

I’ve been doing some research about reading….

Did you know?

  • If you read for 20 minutes a day you will have read 1,800,000 words in one year!
  • You will learn between 4,000 and 12,000 words in one year just by reading!
  • Regular reading improves brain connectivity, reduces stress, aids sleep, helps increase self confidence and reduces feelings of loneliness.
  • Reading can take you all over the world….in your imagination!
  • Regular reading improves your concentration and helps your understanding of different cultures and customs.

You don’t just have to read books. You can read ANYTHING – Leaflets, newspapers, magazines, cereal packets, comics, labels on jars/tins, road signs, cookery books, poems, jokes, instructions, labels on the supermarket shelves, bottles of bubble bath, anything with words!!

You can also read ANYWHERE – at bedtime, in the bath, listen to stories in the car, read in the garden, read on the beach, read in the car, read in a tractor, read up a tree…..

So, today (and everyday) enjoy a story. Listen to a story or read to yourself. How does it make you feel?
