Wow! So here we are, already, at the end of the first full week back to school. What a fantastic week it has been. A real highlight for everybody has been welcoming everybody in Acorns to school, with the pupils in Reception staying for their first full day today. Already, they are working so well with the school routines and are having a great time with their learning. It has to be recognised what a great job all of the Early Years team in Acorn Class has done; their warm, calm and welcoming manner gets pupils in Northaw off to a brilliant start to their education and I have been most impressed by everything that has taken place this week. For parents, it is a real defining moment to watch your child go to ‘big’ school for the first time—thank you all for trusting us to look after the most precious things you have—it is such a privilege.
The school library is looking amazing! The books are all in the right place. The shelves have all been sorted and moved around and it is now ready to invite classes in to read. We are planning to start using the library again very soon, as part of our Covid review. It has also been wonderful to be treated some amazing piano playing, with many of our talented musicians having restarted their piano lessons.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my first full week at Northaw. Whilst I know everybody is looking forward to their weekend, it is always a joy to be somewhere that you look forward to going to on a Monday morning.
Have a fantastic weekend and I look forward to another enjoyable week ahead.
