A Message from Ms Lindsay Gabriel

It has been a very busy month and half term is already upon us. The hall is having its finishing touches and will be finished this week. We are awaiting the arrival of new library furniture, we cannot wait to show off the transformation and to see it being used by our wonderful children. I am pleased to inform you that a part-time Assistant Head of School has been appointed for Winsham, Ashill and Hatch Beauchamp Schools.

Mrs Joanne Crocker, lead teacher at Ashill Primary School, was successful at interview. Mrs Crocker is an experienced teacher and understands the rewards and challenges of working in small schools. She is passionate about working with each school community and is committed to providing the best education possible for all of the children in The Redstart Learning Partnership. Mrs Crocker will continue with her teaching commitment at Ashill and work across the small schools one day per week focusing on strengthening the quality of teaching and learning.

The children have all been extremely busy, Heron class held an assembly on Ancient Egypt, their attention to detail was superb and all their hard work researching facts, hieroglyphics and enthusiasm for the topic clearly shone through. Heron class will be visiting the Tutankhamun Exhibition in November, Keira was a marvellous Cleopatra. Woodpeckers with Pre-school have been busy on the school field making insect and hedgehog houses, the children have also been making plans for the school field in the spring time, what they would like to plant and where, how to attract more wild life and insects and how to make the environment better for them. It is lovely to hear their suggestions and ideas and they all work so positively together.

Well done to everyone on their efforts with “wear it pink day”. The children made a super effort. Well done and thank you to key stage 2 who provided cakes and to those who helped sell them-a total of £66.50 was raised for Cancer research.

Thank you to the PFA who arranged our Halloween disco, the children and staff had a wonderful time and particularly enjoyed the fog machine. If you are going Trick or Treating next week please have fun but also, please stay safe. 

A final thank you for your continued support. We had 100% attendance at our Parents’ evening and we hope you found it useful. I look forward to seeing you all after half tem on Monday 4th November.

Ms Lindsay Gabriel,

A Message From Miss Dobinson

Good morning, I cannot believe that we have had two weeks of home learning.  I know you would have had to adapt and change, which isn't always easy. I hope you have all enjoyed some of it and are continuing to grow and develop in your own way. We are all in a very strange situation, even the adults around you are unsure on what happens next and so we are very much all in this together - learning together. Over the next two weeks, it would normally be your Easter Holiday. Whilst there is no expectation to do work, I have made a folder for Easter activities, should you want something to do during the lock-down period.   I know that we will all at some point be frustrated that we can't go out, sad that we can't see those that we love and feel restricted and without freedom. However, take comfort in the knowledge that you are safe at home and that this is the perfect time to spend with your family.  Bake cakes, watch movies, make junk models, tell jokes, build things, make up games, share your interests, make music, plant flowers, teach each other something... the list is endless. Whatever you do, make sure you are relaxed and having fun. I look forward to re-connecting with you after the Easter Break but if needed I am never far away - Google Classroom is always open. Take Care of yourselves and of each other. Miss Dobinson     Sarah Dobinson Senior Lead Teacher, SENCo and DSL Winsham Primary School Redstart Learning PartnershipCategories: 1 CategorySchool News
