Happy New Year and welcome back !
We hope you all had a great Christmas break. We are pleased to see the children back at school looking so smart and showing really positive attitudes to learning.
Just a few reminders…
Children should bring their PE kits on Monday and keep them in school all week so that they always have them in school.
Please ensure that your child reads regularly– we are looking for 20 times per month in order that children can build their reading skills and stamina and also become fluent and accurate in their reading. Please ensure that you write in their reading record book when they have read as these are checked in school.
We ask that no jewelry is worn in school. If it is not possible for children to take our earrings, then they should be a small stud only.
Could we please ask that where children have long hair this should be tied back during the school day. This helps to prevent the spread of head lice.
A note about children’s use of social media.
We speak to the children regularly in school about use of social media accounts such as whatsapp, snap chat, facebook and tik tok. It is recommended that children below the age of 13 should not be using these sites. Whilst we understand that this is a parental choice, should your child be using any social media we would recommend that you monitor this very closely. Whilst we robustly teach children about safe use of social media we are unable to police what they do out of school.
Congratulations to all 21 children from Canon Popham that have won our Winter Winners certificates for completing all of the activities set in the Autumn term! This is excellent news that these children have engaged 100% with the activities and Maths with Parents online homework platform.
