Hello from Cedar Weekly Emails

Hello from Cedar

How can it be February already?! Time flies! We will be breaking up for the half-term holiday a week today on Friday 9th February. The children will return, after the break, at the usual time on Monday 19th February.

In assemblies this week we have continued to learn about Martin Luther King and have been thinking about kindness and being fair to everybody. Children were asked to share information about someone in school who has shown them kindness. It really was humbling to listen to children telling us about fellow pupils who have been kind to them. Your children truly are amazingly generous and exceptionally thoughtful. They are a total joy to work with. Thank you so much for ‘loaning them to us’ each day.

This week has been Careers Week in our secondary department.  Children have been experiencing different ways of developing their employability skills of communication, team work, problem solving, initiative and enterprise, planning and organising, self-management, learning skills and technology.

Next Friday we will be saying ‘goodbye and good luck’ to Matt Baker, one of our SSAs in Blue Class. Matt has secured a new job working at Paultons Park so, if you ever visit, do keep a look out for Matt! Matt’s journey at Cedar is very special. He attended the school as a pupil and then returned as an SSA. Thank you, Matt, for everything that you have done for the children at Cedar. We all wish you every success for the future! Matt will be phoning parents/carers of his Key Worker children today to speak to them in person.

We are also saying ‘goodbye and good luck’ to Rosie Young from our lunch time team. Rosie has a new job as a teaching assistant in a local primary school. Good luck, Rosie; you will be great! Thank you for your work here at Cedar.

We hope that you enjoy a restful weekend,
Neil, Cesia and the whole team at Cedar
