Remembrance Sunday - Wikipedia   Headteacher's Welcome

This week the children in Year 1 and Year 2 have been learning about Remembrance Day. This included a visit to Fulwood War Memorial. All the teachers reported back that the children had behaved impeccably and this was also reported via a member of the community on the Fulwood forum on facebook:- 

"We were joined unexpectedly by the Elephants and Turtles of NGIS who were very knowledgeable about Remembrance Day. Congratulations to the children for holding the 2 minutes silence so well." 

 I had the pleasure of accompanying Penguins class on Wednesday and I too was impressed by their knowledge but even more so by the respect and thoughtfulness that they showed. It was definitely a very proud Headteacher moment! Thanks to all the staff for teaching the children about this important part of our history  in such a meaningful and child-friendly way. 

Some of the special moments are captured on our dedicated Remembrance page.

Notes from the Teachers

Just a  reminder that the weekly home learning is uploaded onto the webpage each Monday morning so if your child is isolating you can find it there. If you have any problems with accessing any aspect of the website please email school. 

                                                     PTA Update 

Tea Towels and bags - deadline extended to Monday 16th November!!

Many thanks to everyone who has already ordered and paid for their self-portrait tea towels and NGIS bags. 

 If you haven’t yet managed to get your order in yet, then don’t worry! We are extending the deadline to the end of Monday 16th November. Please make sure that you have submitted your order form AND made payment by then. We are sorry but we cannot accept orders that have not been prepaid.  

 The order form and payment details can be found   here

Thank you

 The money from the sale of these tea towels and bags buys things that genuinely improve our children’s experience at school. Amongst other things, PTA money has helped build the woodland area, repaint the schoolyard and buy books and equipment.

This year, we’re saving up for iPads. And, because of COVID, there aren’t so many opportunities to get involved. So, please dig as deep as you can and buy a tea towel or bag for as many people as you can (whether they want one or not!). They make a fantastic Christmas present or memento.
Together, let’s see how much money we can raise to support our school.

Thank You!!!

 Breakfast and After School Club Update 

Both clubs are still able to run under the Lockdown restrictions as their primary purpose is childcare. 

This week there has been great excitement in After School Club where they have had a Pudsey Bear colouring competition. The staff have been so impressed with how well the children concentrated and how much effort they all put in. There was a winner from each bubble. Congratulations to Matilda (Bears), Freddie (Turtles) and Esme (Elephants)!
