To commemorate the queen being our longest reigning monarch, yesterday, we had a special assembly.
Mr Betts showed the whole school a film and a presentation about the Queen and her Coronation After that Mrs Pinkett got us to practice singing the National Anthem, and told us she had written to invite the Queen to our school.
Then look who arrived!We sang the National Anthem again, and her Majesty was very impressed with our singing. Mr Betts asked the Queen how she was going to spend the day, and she told us that she was off to Scotland very soon after our assembly. She also told us what she was having for her tea, and where Prince Philip does his shopping! Here is the visitor badge she left behind
It was marvellous to see you, your Majesty. Thanks for visiting Southwold Primary School!
We are delighted to welcome RED TED to our school. RED TED stands for Read Every Day, Talk Every Day. In our drive to improve reading across the school we are challenging the children from EYC to year 4 to earn their own RED TED. When your child reads in the evening to you, we would like you to sign their Reading Diary. When there are 10 signatures in the book it will be stamped and the children will receive a sticker. When the 5th stamp & sticker is achieved, showing that the child has read 50 times, they will be awarded their own RED TED bear! After earning their very own bear, the challenge continues. When they have read another 50 times, the children will be able to choose a brand new book from the special RED TED bookshelf. We really hope that with your support, all the children will be the proud owners of a RED TED. Please remember to sign the Reading Diary every day that your child reads to you. We are consulting Classes 5 and 6 to find ways of rewarding their reading too, and will let you know what is decided.
