Dragon's Roar Newsletter 11/5/2018

Dragon's Roar!

Welcome to our new Dragon's Roar newsletter. We'll be texting you a link when it is published so you  can stay on top of all the news and information coming out of KPNS.

As we move towards the end of the academic year (just 6  weeks to go!) I thought I'd let you know about some changes that will be happening from September 2018. As the number of children in school has grown, classes have become a little larger than we would ideally want. As such, governors have been working hard to recruit new teachers that will allow us to reduce class sizes. From September, children from F1 - Y6 will be taught in classes that have an average size of 21 pupils.  We will also have a new, separate class for our youngest pupils, allowing them to have the specialist provision that will allow them to thrive!

Next week , we will give you much more more information about the new classes and staff changes and how they will help your children make even more progress! There will be lots of new faces from September!

FRIENDS OF KPNS

Well done to our super Reading Award Winners for this week, Kaitlyn Jones and Leticia Stevenson have both reached their GOLD by reading at home one hundred times! As a reward they have both been and chosen their brand new book- well done girls! 

Thanks for all of the Get Caught Reading entries; they look fabuolous. Any more entries can be sent to the school office. All of them will be displayed in school in the coming couple of weeks.

HALL OF FAME

Please contact the school office, preferably by email marked ‘Hall of Fame’, if you would like to share the achievements of your children with the rest of the school community. We love to hear about what they have been doing outside of school! We will post any achievements you let us know about in future editions of Dragon's Roar.

AOB

A few weeks ago you may recall that a flyer went out about a Costume Making course to take place here at school. This was planned in response to a lot of interest when first mentioned in the Autumn Term. Unfortunately, there was no take up. We'd really appreciate some feedback as to what the barriers were to attending that course. Was it the time it took place? Childcare issues etc? A reminder that it would have taken place on a Wednesday afternoon and finishing before the end of the school day. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated so that in future we can aim to work around any potential problems there may be in accessing courses in school. Any feedback can be passed to Mrs Holmes or Mrs King or via the school email address. Thank you in advance.
