When Polly came…
Today, Wednesday 11th January 2017, we had a very special guest: Polly Ho-Yen came to visit our school, she has written 2 books: ’Boy in the Tower’ and her latest ’Where Monsters Lie’ – we had a lovely visit. Polly Ho-Yen was most inspiring, she did a fantastic assembly to all of the KS2 children, its looked like everyone loved it and really enjoyed it. Later on, Polly came to Sycamore and did her very own workshop with the Year 5 and 6’s. She amazingly told us to draw the slightest thing (possibly a penguin) and add anything else, they could even be scribbles and build up your own story, sadly Polly had to go, she kindly signed our books. We will always remember her visit.

Golden Book…
This week our golden children were:
Eliza Simpson, Spencer Taylor , Max Davies, Noah Bancroft, Harry Smith, Maisie Davies, Callum Bradshaw, William Hinton, Hallie Cummings, Charlie Hughes, Cerys Saunders, Elia Gascon-Thomas, Ben Harrod-Wild, Bethan Jones, Archie Forbes, Leah Burke, Kate Smith, Evie Pritchard, Toby Hamer-Carre, Megan Davis, Nathan Williams, Madeline Rowlands, Ella Knowles, Beth Stimson, Lewis Jones, Ben Mansell and Sam Hughes.
This week, children were recognise for improved listening, concentration, motivation, remembering ‘next steps’, contributing in assembly and representing the school well.

Last Tuesday, our hockey team went to the Corbet for an inter-school tournament. We came 4th overall. Well done to Lewis Jones, Nathan Williams, Madeline Rowlands, Ella Knowles, Beth Stimson, Sam Hughes and Ben Mansell. The children played with their usual enthusiasm and vigour.

Dinner Money
We’re really pleased with the up-take of the online payment system, it is a much easier, safer and more convenient way to pay, with no additional charges.
If you are paying by cash for lunch, please can you ensure it is in on a Monday (for any days that week), in a named envelope. We do understand that on some occasions, this is not always possible.

Little Musketeers
Following the success of our fencing club, we invited ‘Little Musketeers’ to West Felton. Little Musketeers provides an exciting environment for young children to develop the Olympic values of friendship, respect and excellence through the skills of fencing. Fencing not only instantly appeals to a child’s sense of play but also provides a unique mix of physical and intellectual stimulation, the benefits of which can be transferred. The letters will follow shortly.

Can you help Acorn class?
In a few weeks we will be learning about people in the community who help us, i.e. police officers, fire fighters, doctors, nurses, librarians etc. We would be very grateful of any parents who work in a similar profession who would be able to spare a little time to come and answer some questions from the Reception and Nursery children about their job roles. If you think you can help then please speak to Miss Miller or a member of the Acorn staff.

Our half termly focus is…
Luke 11:4 Forgive us our sins, as we also forgive everyone who sins against us
We welcomed Rev. Richard Burton into school for the first time last week. Richard led Worship…along with his assistants Cheryl Crow & George Dragon! (ask the children)
