As I sit here with storm Doris raging all around us I am only glad that Doris is here this week and not next when I will be in Center Parcs with 3 colleagues and 9 members of Upper School!! Hopefully Doris will have moved on by Monday when we go up to Penrith for our annual Center Parcs residential! I did not manage to go last year so I am really looking forward to everything we have got planned - an action packed 5 days! However I am disappointed that I will not be in school on Thursday when it is World Book Day - Merefield is embracing the theme of Pirates and there are various exciting learning activities planned with every class using a specific Pirate Book as their starting point! Students from Edge Hill are also joining us for the day and bringing some new resources for our children and young people to explore!
As this is the mid point of this academic year myself and Jo Ashcroft are currently meeting with every class teacher to discuss the progress each pupil is making across all areas of their learning. This is an opportunity to celebrate success and also to ensure that everything is being done to support each pupil with their individual learning. There are some links to websites for learning at home on the Parents Page of this website - have you looked at these yet? If you come across anything that you find useful with your son/daughter why not let us know and we will share with other families!
We will be holding our popular Easter Showcase Events at the end of this term to share with our families all our pupils' amazing learning during this Spring Term - letters will be sent home this week advising of dates/times.
