    February Holiday Ready, Steady Read/Listen Sponsored Event  

    As already mentioned in the blog a few weeks ago, to celebrate and encourage a lifelong love of reading at home and in school, we have organised, in conjunction with Usborne Books, a 'Ready Steady Read' event! We are really excited about this, as it means we are not only inspiring children to read at home, but we also have the opportunity to enhance the books we have available in school – something we are always keen to do!   
    Each child will have the chance to be sponsored for their reading during half term (or, for nursery and reception children, to listen to stories!) in order to raise money. ALL the money we raise will be spent on brand new books for school. Usborne will also add to our budget depending on how much we raise.  
    We can't wait to hear about all the books you read :)  Not sure what books to read..? -  the local library can make recommendations or check out www.lovereading4kids.co.uk for age related recommendations.  
    The sponsor forms have been sent to your email address twice now – once at end of January and once this week.  They are word docs so you could fill in online and return if you don’t want to print them out. 
    There will be a prize given to the child who reads/listens to the most books over half term for each age group - one prize for a child in YN/YR; one for a child in Y1/2; One for Y3/4 and one for Y5/6. 
    Thank you to Laura Harrison for supporting us in this event and we look forward to hearing about all the exciting reading that has taken place in the holidays. You could even take photos of you reading your books and we can display those – again emailing in is fine and we will print them – email to jane.leo@tadpolefarmcepa.co.uk - what is the most unusual place you do your reading?  

    Spirituality and Well-being through the Arts Week 
    This week the ’Mosaic Man’ came to school and was helped by the Y3 – 6 children to put together a mosaic sign to welcome people to our school.  He was supported in organising the groups that worked with him by a great team of parent and staff helpers, led by Miss Brandenberg - thank you for all the time you gave as a team to support a project like this.  The mosaic should be put up over the holiday period so you will all be able to see it but here is a taster of the journey to it’s completion... 












    World Book Day and Book Fayre Request 
    As announced in last week’s blog, World Book Day celebrations will be on Thursday 7th March and we have chosen a themed approach to dressing up this year.  We are not expecting that parents will buy anything specifically for this event as we appreciate that you all have other demands on your income.  To give you some DIY ideas I have added some weblinks below that may help....  
    EYFS – YN and YR: Fairy Tales – any character from any fairy tale - https://www.bhg.com/halloween/kids-costumes/easy-to-make-kids-costumes/ 
    (I found lots of hits just googling DIY children's fairy tale costumes – so many that I didn’t think you would need them added here) 
    KS1 – Y1 and Y2: Percy the Park Keeper (dress as Percy or any of his woodland animals).  
    Lots of animal masks blanks available on the internet for you to copy or print or Percy costume can be easily made from clothes you may have available plus a cap 

    LKS2 – Y3 and Y4: Mr Men & Little Miss characters. 
    Can be adapted for any of characters in the Little Miss and Mr Men series 
    UKS2 – Y5 and Y6: Any character from a Roald Dahl book 
    The week after World Book Day we have the Book Fayre in school; if any parents could help run the cash desk we still have some slots available (thanks to FOTF for organising filling most of them!).   The Fayre will be in the office foyer at lunch and after school - see dates above. 

    Football Match Report 
    It's been a busy week for the Tadpole football team this week, which saw us play two boys fixtures and a girls tournament at Kembrey park.  
    First up was the boy's plate fixture against Wroughton  - unfortunately we found ourselves at the end of another heavy defeat which saw us knocked out of the competition. Special mention goes to Harley, Kewin and Owain who offered to go in goal, especially Harley who made some cracking saves to prevent the score from being more.  
    A couple of the boys dusted themselves off again the next evening and found themselves in a very competitive fixture against Haydonleigh; the boys found themselves three nil down before halftime however without Muhammad it could be been a totally different scoreline. At halftime my words were...  can we continue to work hard and see if we can pinch a goal?  ...and we ended up getting two! Luke and Gabriel got on the scoresheet with the help of Darcy and Joseph, who played thier part in setting up the goals. The boys ended up losing 4-2 however they came away with a positive attitude in what was a cracking game.  
    On Friday we returned, but this time it was the girls who were taking part in thier first ever competitive fixture and they didn't disappoint. The girls drew 3 and lost 3 and overall scored 7 goals with Angel grabbing herself 4 and Kirsten, who managed to score a cracking goal finding the top corner.  Not bad from a team that have never played together before and this might not be the last we hear from the girls. Also credit to the parents who came to the tournament because if there was an award for the most excited and supportive parents you guys would have won as you were, by far, the most supportive and loudest at the tournament. Thank you again to all the parents as without your support these fixtures can't go ahead.  
    Miss Wood 

    Parent Consultation Meetings 
    Many thanks to all those parents who used the new bookings system and made their own appointments for parents consultations. For anyone who missed the email and blog information, we have now booked and emailed to you a time to see your child's teacher. Please check your junk mail if you haven't received it.  If you need to check your time, please refer back to your confirmation email sent to you at the time of booking. Due to GDPR rules, we aren't able to email this info out.  ALL children now have an appointment booked.  Remember, the dates are either Tuesday 5th or Thursday 7th March. 

    Message for Y3/4 Parents 
    On the 25th February please could all year 3/4 children come into school in their PE kits ready for our Hook day (Hook day is the name we give to the day we launch a new topic for the term). 
    Thank you - Y3/4 Team 

    Message for Y5/6 Parents 
    Next term we are going to be doing a topic based around Dinosaurs (please don't tell the children just yet!).  
    We have planned lots of writing based around Jurassic Park, as it is a PG film, such as complaint letters, balanced arguments and diary entries.  
    However, because of the age limit, we are writing to ask that if you feel your child should not view this film, please let us know before Monday 25th February so we can make other arrangements for your child if needed. Please email jane.leo@tadpolefarmcepa.co.uk 
    We hope you have a lovely half term!  
    Thank you,  
    Miss Weston & Miss Pearson

    2018/19 Newsblog Term 3 Week 5

    Hello All 
      
    What a great week the whole school had last week – the films of the dances are still being put together and we hope to do a whole montage of clips – though my film editing skills leave a lot to be desired, as you will see from the link below, when I edited the whole school singing This is Me – that was Friday’s activity and you can see it by following the link below. It was a magical, emotional performance much enjoyed by our invited guests from the Local Board, Friends of Tadpole Farm Committee and representatives from the one of the performing arts groups we work closely with.

    Spirituality and Well-being through the Arts Week 

    We have had an amazing week exploring the Christian belief in the creation story; sharing thoughts, reflections and Prayers in the prayer space; taking care of our well-being and exploring what helps with that;  creating something more than we could do on our own through art, dance and singing; discussing philosophy and how the world resources are shared... and what to do when they are not. This coming week sees the arrival of the mosaic artist and we will also be working on putting together a montage of the outcomes of the week.  As a taster here is a link to the whole school singing This is Me, a walk through performance that was emotive and full of feeling - https://youtu.be/7JySQ6aqXjE

    Thank You for Coming Along to Coffee Morning

    Thank you to all those who came along for the first Coffee Morning
    they run from 8.45am - 10.00am on Tuesday  - next dates -  12/2, 26/2, 5/3, 12/3 and 19/3. 

    These sessions are designed specifically for parents with children in Nursery and Reception class and aim to support you and your child through their learning journey. 

    Each session will start at 8.55am with a short presentation and then ample time to ask questions, chat and of course have coffee (or tea) and cake. 

    This is an opportunity for you to: meet and chat with other parents; find out new things; ask those burning questions; celebrate success and feel involved and up to date. 


    These sessions are designed to be fun and formal and will give you the opportunity to speak to a wide range of teachers and professionals. 



    Preferably, we would like you to attend all six sessions as we feel this would give you the best experience. 

    Thank You from Young Carers 


    Last Thursday (31st Jan) was Young Carers Awareness Day and we had a cake sale with yummy treats donated by the grown-ups in our school. We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone that brought some pennies in for this day as we raised £150, which is going to Swindon Carers Centre to support them with the work that they do every day.  

    Parent Consultation Booking Reminder

    Comic Relief is not too far away - just a reminder that you can buy your red noses from the school office this year. Payment can be made via Parent Pay.  

    World Book Day 
    With our focus on encouraging reading, we have set the following themes for each Key Stage for World Book Day, which is on the 7th March. We have tried to come up with themes which will hopefully appeal to the age range, but also have easy options for the children to create outfits rather than having to buy them.  
    EYFS: Fairy Tales – any character from any fairy tale  
    KS1: Percy the Park Keeper (dress as Percy or any of his woodland animals).  
     LKS2: Mr Men & Little Miss characters. 
     UKS2: Any character from a Roald Dahl book  
    Staff.... any crayon from The Day the Crayons Quit!  
    Enjoy finding out about the characters and creating your costumes – we look forward to a colourful day!  

    Special Requests from YR 
    Does anybody have a trampette gathering dust? It would be great if one could be donated for early years to help build our gross motor muscles! 
    Also, if anyone has any action figures, small world play or action men they would like to donate, reception would be very grateful!  

    Football Match Report 
    After a short winter break, the boys found themselves back in action against a strong Abbeymeads side and, after a quick change of venue due to a flooded field, the boys unfortunately found themselves 4-nil down at half time. A better second half was to come though, after some fantastic defending from Daniel, Nathan and Gabriel and some spectacular saves from Muhammad the score could have been far greater. Despite the boys losing 7-nil, they came away learning so much and will only continue to improve in future matches.  
    The headteacher from Abbeymeads spoke to us after the game and praised the boys on how wonderful they were during the match and the fact that they didn't moan once despite the one-sided score line. He also praised the parents for their enthusiasm during the game, so thank you again for your continued support. Also, a BIG thanks to Miss Brandenburg for coming along to cheer the boys on. 
    Mrs Philpot and Miss Wood  
    Note from Mrs Leo - I’m sure you’d all like to know that we also received an email from the Headteacher at Abbeymeads Primary, praising our children, the parents and staff for their enthusiasm and positive attitude during and after the match - in his words “Brilliant - a great advert for the ethos of our school!’ We’re very proud of everyone involved!  

    FOTF Superhero Scarecrow Design competition 
    Ahead of our Scarecrow Trail in May and for a bit of Half Term fun FOTF are launching a competition for the children to design the best Superhero Scarecrow for us to use on all of our promotional material for the event. There are x3 £10 Amazon vouchers for the best 3 designs (KS1/ KS2 and Overall) and Mrs Leo will decide and announce the winners in worship on Friday 1st March. On Sunday we will email out the template for you to print at home. Alternatively, children can draw their own Superhero Scarecrow on A4 or collect a template sheet from the office.  
    We are asking for all completed entries to be returned to the office/ teachers by Tuesday 26th Feb ready for us to look at our next meeting on Thursday 28th Feb 7pm-which you are all invited to. Please make sure all entries have your child’s NAME and CLASS on and keep in mind it will need to be scanned in so having lots of things stuck on them may not be best. If you want to share your child’s creation don’t forget to join our Facebook page ‘Friends of Tadpole Farm Academy’. We hope the children will have some fun!

    Spirituality and Well-being through the Arts Week 

    Across the year we have a number of different focus weeks and this term our focus week is Spirituality and Well-being through the Arts.  This coincides with Children’s Mental Health Week too, which will be part of our focus for whole school and class/house worship this week; linked to our value of thankfulness by considering how we are thankful to have the people in our lives who help to cheer us up when we are not feeling happy.   If you would like to find out more about Children’s Mental Health Week there are some excellent resources and information on https://www.childrensmentalhealthweek.org.uk/parents-and-carers/ 
    During this coming week the whole school is working together on a number of projects, with each class taking one part of the project as a focus.  The overarching theme is to bring alive the wonder of creation and how appreciation of the world can bring spiritual and mental well-being. This will be done through creating an art installation to depict the Creation Story; the same theme is explored via drama and contemporary dance; a walk-through school performance of ‘This is Me’ sung as a round with every class involved and a philosophical based debate around the text of “If the World were a Village’. We were also due to be creating a whole school mosaic welcome sign, funded by FOTF, but this will now take place next week due to the artist involved having a family emergency.  
    In the past we have invited you in for a showcase on the Friday but as the school has grown this is tricky in terms of space, so we will be filming everything and creating film montages to share on the website.  The advantage is that then you can share the links with family and friends so hopefully more people can enjoy experiencing the outcomes the children have created. It promises to be a thought-provoking and exciting week.  

    Snow Update 
    Thank you for your patience and understanding this week.  Thank you also to the many people who have offered to go to school on Sunday afternoon 1 – 3pm to help clear the site of any remaining snow.  We hope you found the email updates timely and the information accessible and clear.  Any feedback you have is always welcome.

    As mentioned in last week's blog - here are photos from storytelling session that was kindly funded by David Wilson Homes.

    Snow news - School Closed Friday 1st February

    Email sent 06:35 1/2/19
    School will be closed today due to snow.  Having checked in with staff about who is able to get to school and by when, we will be unable to provide a safely staffed site and so have taken the decision to close the school today.  The advice we have received is for essential travel only and some of the routes our staff take to get to school are unsafe/closed. 

    Enjoy the weekend and we will see you on Monday.

    Apologies for the inconvenience this causes.
    This information will also be available via the blog, the website, Heart FM and Twitter. 

    Kind regards
    Jane

    Snow News - Be prepared
    Sent by email 31/1/19 22:30

    Hello All,


    Those of you who were with us during the snow last year will know that we do all we can to keep you up to date and to keep school open when safe to do so.  This email is to give you a ‘heads up’ re tomorrow - the forecast is for snow from now, through the night to Friday morning.  Combined with the low temperatures it is likely that the snow will settle and so cause difficult travel conditions. I have members of staff giving me updates of how the snow is in various areas. 

    So for the moment the message is…
    Friday morning check your emails - I will make a decision by 6:45 a.m. - I will send an email saying open or closed - it will depend on whether enough staff can get to school safely; whether we can make the site safe and what the predictions are for the remainder of the day.
    Note: we may not be able to provide LilyPad breakfast club (credits would be made if we close) as we may not be able to get enough staff in safely at that time


    Keep safe 
    Jane
