Recognition of Commitment
We are very happy to announce we have achieved the first part of the Rights Respecting School Award from UNICEF; the recognition of commitment (ROC). We have shown how we plan to become Rights respecting and that children and adults are developing a whole school Rights Respecting approach.
Our Rights Respecting Steering Group
We have now formed a Steering Group, of staff and pupils. These ambassadors work hard to help others in the school learn about the important work of UNICEF and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the child. One ambassador has been selected from each class across the school. These children will now be participating in Rights Respecting assemblies and helping to raise awareness of UNICEF.
Sing Up Day 2017
On Wednesday 22nd March our school celebrated Sing Up day! I am pleased to report that with everyone’s hard work, the day was a great success! It was lovely to see children and staff singing and dancing throughout the school day. Our day started with welcome songs at the front gate and this put a smile on many faces, despite the rain! Classes sang a variety of their favourite songs and used singing to enhance their learning.
During assembly, the children sang the national Sing Up day song – ‘Let love shine through’. The children also had lots of fun singing and dancing during their lunch time. It was so lovely to see the whole school enjoying music – We have many excellent singers in our school and we are already looking forward to next year.
Zumba for mums!
Don’t forget that we run a class every Wednesday morning at 9am – mums of Minet Infant School only!
A Special Visitor…..
On Thursday 23rd March we had a special day when we held a sports tournament across the school. The day was co-ordinated by our Sports Ranger, Mr Bailey and of course, Mr Rossiter. The standard was high and luckily the weather was dry!
At the end of the day we held a special assembly to celebrate and had a surprise visit from Spark, the QPR mascot.
This is part of our ongoing work with the QPR Primary Stars Programme in which we work together to increase children’s enjoyment, skill and participation in sport.
Red Nose Day
Well, there were lots of smiles and laughter in our Friday assembly this week as the staff shared their favourite jokes. We also heard about the fantastic work charities do with the funds raised on this special day and were proud to be part of it.
Minet Infants and Nursery raised £377.
Thank you for all your support.
