We have a new scheme at Charlestown; For the summer term only we will give £30 to any class that achieves 100% attendance for the week. The class will be able to decide how to spend their cash.

This morning Mrs Batty took the whole of year six for a ballroom dancing lesson. We’ve even entered a competition! Mrs Batty was a great teacher and we all tried not to step on each others toes too much!
There will be a non uniform day for all bronze credit card holders on Friday 22nd May. As long as you can produce your bronze credit card you may wear your own clothes.
Here at Charlestown we place a great deal of emphasis on rewarding the good things that our children do. At every opportunity we are making a point of celebrating good work, behaviour, progress or even good manners no matter how small. It is part of our behaviour policy to regularly reward this sort of effort through a system of stickers which are traded for credit cards. We believe that consistent positive reinforcement of this kind really does matter and shows that we value what our children do, building a cohesive community of learners.
We made a lot of promises to year 6 about some of the fun things that would happen after SATs. It looks like Mr Kirkpatrick is delivering on those promises; to start off an exciting dinosaur project Gemma and Paige brought a 3D paper scale model of a T Rex that they had just finished. I have heard rumours of a much bigger dinosaur project; plywood? chicken wire? modroc? Watch this space.
Family First Fun May 15, 2009
Family First has run a series of new activities recently including beauty therapy with Pendleton College and cookery with the PCT. Parents have worked together with their children sharing their learning.
Well done to everyone in Year Six for all the hard work that you’ve put in both this week and over the past few weeks. Everybody at school is really proud of what you have done and we are sure that you’ll all have done brilliantly!
It’s a shame that the weather wasn’t up to having a picnic on the field, but we still made sure that we enjoyed our grub in the classroom instead!
