Harrison Headlines - Friday 11th June 2021

Dear Parents/Carers

Welcome back! Here are a few highlights from the school week.

Clean Air Scooter Training

Year R have completed their scooter training this week. They have been taught to ride their scooter safely, how to do an emergency stop, cross a road safely with an adult and manoeuvre their scooter safely. Take a look at the photos and Christopher’s garden, what a transformation!

 

Before and After School Club – parents who are interested in breakfast and after school child care should contact Heather at Barn Owls by email. Hheather942@aol.com

Provision will re-open on Monday 21st June 2021. 

 

School Photos

On Thursday 24th June Yellow will be in school to take class photos of all year groups and individual photos of year R and year 6 only.  Unfortunately, Yellow is unable to take individual photos of all children on this occasion.

(Yr1 Dragonfly Class with Miss Weld will have their class photo taken before the school trip)

 

Reading Challenge

Our huge thanks to Mrs Davies for continuing to inspire everyone at Harrison to seek out new authors and read, read, read. I know how hard it can be to encourage some children to read at home however we will prevail in our determination to support all children to do so. 

One of our priorities is for ALL children to learn to read and leave Harrison as fluent, confident readers. All parents appreciate the importance of this, I'm sure. 

Mrs Davies and I will be launching our own whole school reading challenge on Monday 14th June. We thought you would like some information as a pre-warning. Please see the attached documents which the children will be bringing home on Monday 14th June 2021; each year group has their own challenge. 

The challenge runs from 14th June to Friday 9th July. We hope that everyone takes part; the aim is to encourage the children to read a wider range of books and materials that they might not consider otherwise. Everyone's participation will be celebrated.    

“Research has found that children who read for pleasure are not only more likely to be lifelong readers, but they are also more likely to succeed both academically and socially.”   

Research shows that just ten minutes of reading a day makes a huge difference to a child’s progress.” 

In addition to reading books, here are some websites you might like to use as well: 

Bug Club - www.activelearnprimary.co.uk  (Years R - 3)  

www.oxfordowl.co.uk 

https://harrison-hantssls.eplatform.co/

If you require any passwords in order to access these, please speak to your child’s class teacher. 

All children who participate will be entered into a year group prize draw to win a £5 book voucher, which will be drawn week beginning Monday 12th July.   

Thank you for your continued support in encouraging your children to read regularly and widely. 

 

Happy Reading! 

Mrs Davies (Library Manager)
