We hope you have had an opportunity to enjoy some of the Halloween photos which we are posting on Facebook.  It has been lovely for the children to enjoy that as the end to this first half term.

 

We are experiencing disruptions due to the increasing number of positive cases and the other nasty viruses around at the moment but the staff and pupils have responded brilliantly and I can happily say that the high standards of behaviour and learning have continued uninterrupted.  Well done to the Grange team – all staff and pupils – for continuing to show how dedicated you all are.  I continually feel privileged to be part of this school.

 

Have a lovely week off everybody – we are back on Tuesday 1 November.  One final plea – if there is any illness in your household, please get a test – that is the best way we can keep school moving forward and we always appreciate your support with this.

Stars and Players' Players - week ending 24 September 2021:

 

We have enjoyed our first assembly today in over 18 months!  We invited KS2 pupils only today as we want to ensure that we keep everyone safe and also because the younger children do not yet know what an assembly is!

Over the next few weeks, we are beginning to bring all our usual activities and events back, which is reassuringly familiar.  It is even really nice to see parents collecting children from the back of the school as we used to.  Thank you very much for continuing to show respect and understanding as we navigate through the months ahead and try to minimise any disruption.

 

Children have also continued to show their achievements and excellent attitudes so well done to the following children who are our Stars & Players Player this week:

 

Y6 Ahmad & Finnley

Y3 Raya & Sorcha

Y2: Ayesha & Reilly

Our assembly today was also to present badges to our Year 6 pupils, who we know are going to do a great job of being excellent role models for all other children in school.  Well done to everyone involved.  I look forward to being able to work with you all as we continue to look forward as a school.

This week, we are sending our second newsletter to all parent emails.  There is some really important information regarding a request for increased testing by residents in Preston and West Lancashire linked to the new variants … so please check your emails for the newsletter or see our earlier FaceBook posts.

 

We check in regularly with children working at home and there is some really good stuff going on.  From everyone in school – we are sending a HUGE thank you to parents who are doing so well balancing home life, work and learning. 😊

 

As you know, all classes in school are open with ‘normal’ curriculum teaching happening every day – we hope this approach will prevent some of the ‘learning loss’ that we all worry about linked to this lockdown.  Linking to children at home through live sessions is also helping us stay in touch and hopefully ensuring that all children feel connected to us. 

 

Well done to all our Stars – at home and at school:

 

This week’s Stars are:

Year 6: Sam & Kieran

Year 5: Francessca & Alise

Year 4: Latisha & Tayla

Year 3: Leo & Julia

Year 2: Levi & Lexi

Year 1: Loki & Musa

Reception: Nathen & Jacob

 

 

This week’s Reading Egg awards go to:

Maryam & Amelia in Elm class;  

Emma, Emilia, Myla in Maple class;

Kobie, George & Nadia J in Chestnut class;

Craig & Jacqueline in Willow class!

Well done everyone. 😊

 

Stars and Players' Players - week ending 29 Jan 2021:

 

We seem to have so much information to share at the moment that we are resuming our newsletter service.  This will be posted on the website and sent directly to parent emails. Please contact us if you do not receive your weekly newsletter by email as that means we don’t have the correct address.

 

Thanks again to all parents trying to balance home learning with other demands.  School is almost full – we have over 75 pupils.  However, if you need any advice or support, we are all still here to help those learning from home.

Stars and Players' Players - week ending 22 Jan 2021:

 

Can I start by thanking all parents for wearing face coverings when they enter school premises?  We are told this is a critical point in the lockdown, so with rates currently rising in the North West this added level of safety really helps reassure others and hopefully helps reduce the rate of transmission.

 

A huge thank you to parents supporting home learning too – we have really good engagement from everyone and it is lovely to see lots more faces joining in live sessions from home.

I really hope that everyone at home is safe and well.  In school, we have had a very successful week – the children in school have, as always, been incredibly focused, well-behaved and best of all relaxed and happy! 😊

 

In school we feel that the live registrations have really lifted us in terms of staying in touch with and supporting our home learners.  Please take a look at the Parent folder on Showbie – we are posting information on there you might find useful, including a feedback sheet about home learning.

Stars and Players' Players - week ending 8 Jan 2021:

 

We really hope that everyone has managed to get through this week ok. It seems an awfully long time since we welcomed children back on Monday only to be closed with no notice and we have been working hard since to set up or reintroduce systems for home learning, keyworkers and supporting families.

 

In school, we are running all classes as keyworker classes. All education staff are in school because we have a much-increased demand for places. Don’t let anyone tell you schools are closed!!


Remote learning is therefore on Showbie for all children working from home. Next week, we are beginning a ‘live registration; which we hope will help you and your child connect with he teacher and class on a daily basis.


We have also now started calling parents to see if they need help with internet or Showbie or indeed with any other aspect of the current situation.

PLEASE PICK UP THE PHONE WHEN WE CALL – OUR CALLS WILL COME FROM 01772 792573 OR 01772 702426.

Even if you haven’t managed to do any home learning, we still need to know if you are all ok 😊

 

We are having two Stars each week – one in school and one for home learning. We will post the badges and certificates out to those children learning at home. This week’s Stars are:

Year 6: Elisha / Logan

Year 5: Melody / Reegan

At Grange, we love our Friday assemblies because that is when we recognise and celebrate our Stars and Players' Players.

 

Our Stars are children who have been nominated by the class teacher for going the extra mile - for example, an achievement in learning, or persevering with a personal challenge or for showing consideration or kindness to others.

 

Our Players' Players are chosen by the children in the class - they vote and give a reason for their choice of Players' Player.

 

Usually, the pupils then wear the 'Blue Sweatshirt' all week so everyone can see who our Stars are.  However, during Covid we have decided to give the children a lovely enamelled badge instead.

 

Stars receive and keep a blue badge.

Players' Player receive and keep a yellow badge.

 

We also let parents know of these achievements through our website and our FaceBook account.

We won't contact parents by Groupcall because of the lack of assemblies, but we will post the information on our website and FaceBook page, in line with our current photo consents.  If you wish to change your photo consent, please let the School Office know.
