Welcome to Whitemoor Academy Weekly Newsletter: 3rd November 2023
Head of School Welcome
At Whitemoor, we believe that it is important to teach children how to stay safe both in and out of school. This week's assemblies have focused on how to stay safe on Halloween and on Bonfire Night. The children were fantastic and discussed these topics so well.
Over the coming weeks, we will be focusing on online safety and how to stay safe when using devices as this is an area that we have found children are not very confident with. We invite all parents to attend a parent talk that we are hosting on Thursday 16th November which will focus on how to keep your children safe online. We hope to see you there.
Have a lovely weekend and enjoy the fireworks if you are going to see some.

This week in class...
This week in class 1 the children have been exploring Halloween and bonfire night, with a focus on how to be safe when trick or treating and watching fireworks.
Our book focus for the next 2 weeks is Owl Babies, the class are enjoying learning and joining in with the story. We have made some brilliant pictures of an owl baby and this has inspired writing for the reception children.
In maths, the reception child are continuing to explore numbers 1-3 in depth, focussing on one more and one less this week.
We’d love to see photos and videos on tapestry of the children enjoying Halloween and/or bonfire night so we can share these with their friends.
