NEWSLETTER NOVEMBER 2021

 Principal’s Corner

November is a time to remember those that are no longer with us. The Year 6 pupils read poetry and all the school stood silently to remember those that gave the ultimate sacrifice. There were 24 men who did not return from the 1st World War, most of whom attended our school. It must have been a devastating time in Dilwyn. This year we focussed our remembrance on Thomas Hall, the doctor’s son who lived at Townsend House and died at the Battle of the Somme.

The Infants’ topic has moved from the Great Fire to Cold Places and polar bears and penguins are starting to appear around the classroom.

The Lower Juniors can be seen in Science comparing the energy of different types of nuts. You can boil water with a Brazil Nut. In their topic work they have moved from the Tropical Rainforest to the Egyptian culture and life.

The Upper Juniors have now left the Victorian Era and are studying the Ring of Fire, Volcanoes, Earthquakes and Tsunamis and how they impact on our world. They are also working hard in both Literacy and Numeracy ready for the SATs occurring in May.  Well done Mrs Eckley!!

Finally the project to put solar panels on the school roof is progressing and is in the final approval stage. This could be our contribution to COP26– you can’t believe there have been twenty five previous gatherings.

Sport

Mike’s Sports Club continues until 16th December. Well done Mike, Mrs Hoare & Pudge for all your hard efforts. Congratulations go to Skyla, Betty, Abi, Ollie & Rocco who all achieved their Grade 2 red badges in the pool. The Juniors are now in the pool until the end of term.

Warning

Many of our Juniors play Roblox & Minecraft. The games are harmless, however be aware that children can talk to strangers, which can be a potential safeguarding  issue. Please monitor your child online. Stay safe!
