News From Scott-Broadwood C of E Infant School – September 13
We start the new academic year by welcoming new members of staff to our school community. Mrs Dowse joins us as Senior Teach at Ockley, Ms Redsell joins us as Senior Scool Assistant, also at Ockley. Both Mrs Dowse and Ms Redsell visited the school several times during the Summer Term, and we are all looking forward to getting to know them better in the new term. The children have all met Mrs Dowse on several occasions and our new Reception children at Ockley have all enjoyed their induction visits with Mrs Dowse.
The children will be learning about ‘people who help us’ as their topic for the first half of term, so we will be out and about in the villages finding out who helps us and what they do. If you volunteer for anything or help other people, you might find yourself being asked questions by our children in the weeks ahead.
During this year, all our children will take part in Forest School afternoons with Miss Myers, who has now completed her training. We are really looking forward to using our local environment to enhance the children’s learning and help them to understand how to lear and play in local outdoor places safely. Children develop new friendships in a different environment and improve their self-confidence by using skills in a different way.
For those of you have a child who will have their 4th birthday between September 1st 203 and August 31st 2014, now is the time to come and visit us to find out more about the children’s learning and opportunities at Scott-Broadwood. Please phone the school to arrange an appointment, or come along to our Open Mornings: Tuesday, 5th November at Ockley and Wednesday, 6th November at Capel. Timings at both bases 9:30 – 11:30pm.
