Newsletter Friday 15th February

Dear Parents/Carers,
It’s been a relatively short half term however Christmas seems like a long time ago!

On Tuesday, we had our Herts Vision assemblies where a lady called Margaret spoke to the children about her life without sight. The children were amazed by the gadgets she showed them which allow her to identify the colours around her and of her clothing. All of our children showed high levels of respect by listening so intently and they asked many thoughtful and well considered questions. Mary really enjoyed her visit to Knebworth School and commented on how simply wonderful our children are.

On Wednesday, our Year 2 children transformed into Aztecs for the day! They spent the day engaged in a range of cross curricular activities such as tasting hot chocolate, learning about the end of the Aztec empire, cracking Aztec codices and making headdresses and collars. The children looked absolutely fantastic in their costumes and we were all very impressed with the attention to detail in their outfits. Thank you to everyone who was involved with costumes and thank you to the Year two teachers for enhancing our children’s learning in this way.

A representative from the NSPCC came in this week to count the monies that have been sent into school as a result of the assemblies and workouts in PE lessons. We are pleased to announce that our school community has raised approximately £1400 for the NSPCC. WOW! What a wonderful amount of money that will help many children. The NSPCC will be coming in on 27th February for their thank you assembly to the children so there is still time for any remaining monies to come in!

Sadly for us we have said goodbye to Annielle Walker who has now gone on maternity leave. Annielle has worked in the office team for two terms and has been an amazing support to both staff, parents and children. We will miss her greatly and wish her well for the future.

Over the half term break, the school is having some renovations. Although the children will be away from school for the week, the school will still be busy with action and the children may notice some changes when they return.

Thank you to those parents who have returned their Swimming questionnaires- your feedback is important to us. Please feel free to return any more completed questionnaires after half term to the school office.

Safeguarding is paramount to us at Knebworth and we are always reviewing our procedures. After half term, Year 2 children are going to enter the school building through the white door which is opposite the Year 1/Reception classrooms. This door will be manned by a member of staff who will take any relevant messages to the Year 2 teachers. The Year 2 teachers have spoken to the children about this change. Thank you for your patience.

Have a restful half term and we will look forward to welcoming you all back refreshed and ready for learning.
Kind regards,
Natasha Laskey and the School Leadership Team
