It’s been another great week at MRPA, and we really enjoyed adding a new member to our team… Ricky Reciprocity came to our assembly on Monday and introduced us to his super power ‘Team Player Strength’!
We are all thinking about the learning powers to do with reciprocity, which include interdependence, empathy, listening and collaboration. In short, we are talking to the children about the importance of being able to work both independently and with others in order to achieve an outcome.
The staff development meeting on Wednesday saw all members of the team reading and thinking about how to incorporate learning activities into their classrooms that will encourage the children to use their reciprocity learning muscle in class.
All the Rabbits and Hedgehogs are now in school, and it was fantastic to see the Little Owls join them on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday this week – They have all been truly amazing. Check out the facebook page for some photos, and of course the Twitter feed will show you some highlights too :-).
Our first star of the week assemblies took place this week, and it was a pleasure to see so many proud teachers and children at the front of the hall celebrating all kinds of wonderful things that the children have been doing – both in school and at home. Don’t forget, if your children do anything at home that can be celebrated, please let us know!
A full diary sheet will be sent out early next week with dates leading up to Christmas. This will also be posted on the blog. We are going to hold 3 coffee mornings each term in the KS2 hall, and we hope that as many parents as possible will join us. Members of staff will be available if you have any questions about school, and we will have a focus for giving out information at each one.
If any of the children have started to do the summer reading challenge, and haven’t quite finished, they still have until 27th September… Even if children want to start form the beginning it’s still possible! We are trying to break a record, and it would be great to see lots of children taking part.
Have a great weekend everyone, and we’ll see you all Monday 🙂
