Weekly Update Thursday 25th January 2024

25 Jan 2024

Our Vision

We believe that our children should have the aspiration and opportunity to ‘Live life in all its fullness and ‘Shine like stars in the sky’.

New this week

Residential visit to Bewerley Park
Thank you to everyone who was able to attend our meeting on Wednesday evening it was lovely to share in the children’s excitement.  All the information shared during the meeting is now available for you to look at together at home.  Please find this on the school website under School News & Events.  A copy of all forms is also available via the website.
SEND Parent Catch-up 
Our catch-up this term will be on Monday 4th March 8:45-9:45am. I have some great resources for us to look at facing challenges and talking to your child at these times. But as always, the meeting is led by you! Let Miss Oates know if you can make it and if there is anything in particular you would like to discuss. The group is open to any parents or carers of SEND children but if this is not you and you think you would find the meeting useful, please get in touch. Biscuits included! 
Collective Worship
On Tuesday 30th January 2024 at 9am Swaledale team parents are invited to join Collective Worship at Kirkby Malzeard school.

KS2 Children Reading
Children who are reading our new reading programme books must remember to return them to school on Friday 26th January in the morning.
Parents' Forum on Relationships and Sex Education (RSE)
Many thanks to all those parents and carers across the federation who offered help to review our RSE Policy at last term's meeting about our PSHE curriculum.  Those of you with eagle eyes may have spotted that a date next week had been posted on the school website but has now been removed.  This is because Miss Mandelson (Federation PSHE Lead) has training scheduled in February which will help with this work.  Therefore, the meeting has been postponed until after the half-term break.  More information will follow in due course.
Forest School Wednesday - Oak Class
This term Oak will have their forest school sessions on a Wednesday. Oak Class should bring their forest school kit to school with them to change into on these days.  Please see a full forest school kit list below.
Acorn class will need to come to school in PE kits ready for their lessons on Wednesdays this half term. Cedar should bring their kits to change into on a Wednesday with Palm class bringing theirs each Monday.
Forest School Friday
To support our Golden Thread further, Helen will be running a morning forest school session for each class on a Friday morning based around Life Long Readers. Please see a full forest school kit list below.
Dates are as follows:
Friday 26th January 2024 - Acorn class
Change of Date
KS2 Leavers Play will now take place on Wednesday 10th July at 2pm and 5.30pm (previously scheduled for Tuesday 9th).
KS2 Reading
We are continuing with our new learning to read resources in Key Stage 2. This is a new approach for readers in KS2 and will be in line with the approach currently used in EYFS and KS1.  Children across the key stage will be reading in small mixed age groups closely matched to their learning to read needs. This approach to learning to read includes not only decoding but fluency, prosody, comprehension, connection to reading and on building confident readers with a life-long love of reading.
Children will closely read a book in school over a two-week period, after this time the book will come home for a couple of nights to celebrate and enjoy. It is important to return the books when asked so that the next group of children can begin reading (this day will be recorded in your child’s reading record).  At home please encourage your young reader to read a wide range of books, magazines, comics and graphic novels as part of their Reading for Pleasure practice.  If you have any questions about reading please email or see Mrs Pawson.
