Ofsted Inspection - March 6th 2018

Dear Parents

I have just been told that we have a one-day short inspection from Ofsted tomorrow. I have attached a letter to parents from our inspector together with a parents’ guide to school inspections. Our inspector will want to gauge the views of parents and I would ask as many of you as possible to give your view of the school (hopefully positive!) at www.parentview.ofsted.gov.uk. By noon tomorrow.

 

Regards

SNOW CLOSURES

School will be closed tomorrow -  Friday 2nd March

 

Dear Parents

We have made the decision together with the other schools in the Ember Learning Trust to close tomorrow.

It has been difficult for many members of staff to get to school today and with further snowfall predicted for this evening, followed by freezing conditions tomorrow, it is likely to be even more difficult tomorrow.

 

In addition, there is no running water in several classrooms and we have had to close some of our toilets which has caused further problems.

 

I am sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, but I hope that by giving an early message it will enable parents to make alternative child care arrangements.

 

Regards Nick Fry

Hindleap Warren - Year 4

 

Friday

06:45 - It seems a lot more quiet this morning. Must have been that jam-packed day!

 

Thursday

06:00 - It seems lots of the children are very eager to get up and ready for the day!

 

11:20 - We hope you've got your washing machines ready for the mud... Today's 'forest adventure' seemed to cause a lot of mess!

 

20:00 - The children definitely look tired after a day full of laughter and activities. It's been brilliant to see them all having a go and supporting each other. Our Stars of the Day award ceremony is up next and then it's off to bed for the final night.

 

Wednesday 

12:30 - We have arrived, had a tour of the centre and are now sitting down a lunch of pasta! Lots of smiling faces.

 

18:30 - All of the children have finished their first activities, which have included rock climbing, orienteering and walking through the muddy river! Lots of excitement about the southern fried chicken at dinner (KFC may have run out but we haven't). Swimming or a movie night coming up next. 

 

22:30 - With so much excitement and anticipation about tomorrow, it took the children a little while to get settled but things are now quiet and everyone is getting ready for a new day.

We will be holding a ‘TDJS Spelling Bee Competition this half term.

 

Spelling heats will take place in classes during the week beginning 22nd January, so children should aim to learn the spellings (for their year group) over the next week. The words will be read in isolation and in the context of a sentence when tested. Children will be expected to be able to write the correct spelling and also spell the word out letter by letter (using letter names rather than sounds) if asked to.

Children do not have to enter the competition, however, we want to encourage as many children to be practising these spellings on a regular basis at home and this is a great way to ensure this happens. Many of the spellings are spellings which children have previously had to learn as part of their spelling homework.

Two winning spellers from each class will go through to the final. Words in the final round will not be given out to be learnt at home but will be selected from the National Curriculum word lists appropriate for each year group. The final, where an overall winner for each year group will be crowned, will take place during an assembly in the final week of half term. We will keep you posted on the results. Happy spelling!
