Dear all Queens Pupils
We’ve missed you! It’s been so wonderful being in contact with many of you via email and seeing the hard work you’re putting in on Read Theory or Reading Wise. However, through the wonders of modern technology, next week we are able to have a face to face meeting to catch up with you and your parents. We can chat about how you are getting on generally. Unfortunately, these appointments are only 10 minutes but it will be great to catch up anyway.
To sign up for an appointment, your parents will need to read the Document below and then follow this link:
Your parents will then be able to sign in to book an appointment with your class teacher. If, parents, you are having any problems, then please email your child's class teacher to let them know.
Appointment times have been set based on teacher availability so they do vary across the different classes.
It would be wonderful to see as many of you as possible but please be aware appointments will go quick so you better book soon!
All the teachers.
For advice on how to access the video meetings, please follow this link:
Messages From Us To You!
In the Christian Calendar we're heading into a period preparation for Easter known as Lent. Historically, lent is a time when Christians spend more time praying and can also be involved in raising money for charity. The act of raising money for charity over lent is known as 'Alms'. As a school learning to show Love in Action and honouring others above ourselves, we've decided to raise money to twin our school toilets with other toilets across the world. Year groups and classes will be running their own fundraising projects so keep your eyes open for the fundraising ideas they come up with.
If you wish to find out more information about Toilet Twinning, please follow the link below:
Safer Internet Day 2019
Today at Queens we completed our Safer Internet Day, it was all about consent and permission. The children learnt about what permission is and who can give it. Why organisations and friends should ask for permission. Along with how to say no if you feel uncomfortable about giving your permission.
Each year group looked at a different aspect of consent. Year 3 looked at different scenarios and what they should do in those scenarios. Year 4 looked at game PEGI ratings to understand where they should gain consent when buying new games. Year 5 designed their own social media app and what consent they needed to run their social media app. Year 6 took part in some drama and acted out different scenes and then re-acted it out with what they should have done.
Oh no it isn't!
Oh yes it is!
Yes you guessed it, it's Pantomime Day at Queens CofE Academy. Today all the children were treated to a performance from Chaplins Theatre Productions. The children throughly enjoyed Cinderella and loved getting involved in the show.
We we would like to thank everyone at Chaplins for providing such an amazing performance. All of the children had the most amazing time and it provided them with the perfect end to the Autumn term.
From here at Queens we wish you a Merry Chritmas and a Happy New Year!
Remembrance Day Service
On Friday 9th November, we held our school Remembrance Day service. Father Tom led our service and we invited the relatives of ex-pupils who appear on our school memorial board to honour them. Each year group created their own Remembrance Day art including poppies, war scene silhouettes and skylines. Our Collective Worship team showcased these pieces of art during the event to the rest of the school. This was a special time to remember the soldiers who fought and all those involved. Thank you to all those attended.
Queens would like to say a massive thank you to Balfour Beatty who have volunteered their time to clear our school field and cut down overgrown trees and shrubs.
