Tithe Barn Times 1st November 2019

Welcome Back

Welcome back to a very busy half term as we begin the countdown to Christmas!
Please find attached a document providing further details on all the different events which will be occurring in school this half term. We hope you find it useful. I hope you all had a lovely half term. Many of our children spent time during the holidays with Mr Stamper and Miss Edwards on our Forest Schools Day. Listening to the feedback from children and parents they had a fantastic day and I would like to thank Mr Stamper and Miss Edwards for giving up their time in the school holidays. If your child is interested in attending we will be offering similar days in the future.
I look forward to another great half term, with lots of wonderful learning in school.

Math’s Challenge
Recently a number of children from Year 4 attended a local Math’s Challenge at Lum Head Primary School. The day consisted of challenging questions which involved recalling multiplication and division facts and problem solving. The children had an amazing time and worked very well in teams. We were extremely proud of them all. One of our teams won the competition and we have shared their exciting news in our Learning Assembly.

Dogs in the playground
Please can I politely remind parents that dogs are not allowed in the school playground or on the paths around school. I kindly ask that all parents respect our school policy.
Thank you ever so much for your support with this matter.

Doodle Maths
It has come to our attention that some parents are having problems with Doodle Maths, particularly when using the website. We have reported the problems to the company and they have suggested that the problem may be that children are using the website on a device such as an I pad rather than the app.
As a solution, they recommend that you download the most up to date version of the app onto devices and use this.
If problems persist please let us know so we can rectify them. Thank you for bringing this matter to our attention.

Vacancies at Tithe Barn
We currently have the following vacancies in school.
Mid-day assistants (2 vacancies of 7.5 hours per week)

Busy Term

The children have all been working very hard and our new Reception children have settled into life at Tithe Barn.

I would like to say a huge thank you to all the wonderful grandparents who joined Year 1 recently to talk about their childhood and answer the children’s questions.

Thank you for your continued support

Sporting Adventures

We were delighted to have Kiera Byland return to school last Friday to receive a fantastic cheque for £904.45 to support her trip to compete in the next Special Olympics. We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who helped to raise the funds through our sponsored cycle last term.

We also presented Kiera with Martin the Monkey who is one of our characters from our Learning Jungle. Martin’s learning power is to continuous improve and we felt that this reflected Kiera’s amazing attitude to life.

Tithe Barn Times – 7th September 2019

Welcome Back

Welcome back and a special welcome to all our new children and families who are just starting their journey at Tithe Barn.

We have had a busy first week and the children have all settled into their new classes and are working hard.

School Calendar

We are currently putting together a school calendar that will provide an outline of events for this academic year. We hope you will find this useful and will be distributing it to every child as soon as it is finalised.

Follow us on Twitter

@TitheBarnPri

We have a school Twitter account, which is used as an additional method of keeping you up to date on key events and information.   Please follow us.

School Crossing

We are delighted that over the summer the council has installed a puffin crossing outside of school. For the first half term Bob will be there teaching the children how to use the crossing safely. We will also have Stockport Road Safety team in working with the children and delivering an assembly. We are sure that the crossing will enable our children and local residents to cross the road safely throughout the day.

We would appreciate your support with teaching your children how to use the crossing safely. Please ensure that you-

 

  • Do not cross when the Red Man is showing.
  • Stay within the two sets of studs on the road when crossing. (Sensors are detecting you and therefore will give you time to cross to the other side)
  • Do not follow other pedestrians into the road without checking it is safe to do so especially when crossing in large groups.
  • Do not cross if a car has stopped on the crossing and is blocking it. Press the button again and wait.
  • Do not cross if a driver tells you to do so, check the Red/Green Man box first.

Key Dates

September 13th Year 4 start swimming

September 20th Jeans for Genes day.

September 21st  FOTB have made the decision not to have the Family Festival this month, instead it will be rearranged and become part of our 50 year celebrations. We will send out further details this term about our plans for our celebrations.

Pupil Voice

As practically every single decision we take in school will ultimately affect one group of people (the children), we believe that it’s vital that they have a voice in the decision making and that their voice is heard. Tithe Barn’s school council aims to be one way of doing this. Classes from Y1 to Y6 hold annual elections to vote for a girl and boy who will best represent their class.

Any child who is interested in standing for the position of school councilor is asked to think carefully about how they can effectively represent their class and how they can contribute to developing their school.   The children will be asked to share their ideas with their classmates prior to the confidential elections taking place next week. I will let you know the outcomes of the elections in the next newsletter.

Celebrating Bob

After October half term, Bob will be relocating to cross children near the library. We are extremely grateful for his dedication and the time he has given to our school and we are planning a special celebration later this term.

We will send out further details nearer the time. However, please keep it a secret as we want to surprise him!

In the meantime, we are starting a collection for Bob to show our appreciation of his time at Tithe Barn. If you would like to make a donation please send it in a sealed envelope clearly labelled with Bob’s collection. We will be creating a book of personalized messages, If you would like to include one please also send it in an envelope to the school office.

Thank you

Jeans for Genes Day

Friday 20th September is Jeans for Genes Day and we are inviting your children to come into school wearing jeans. We would be grateful for a donation of £1 to support this worthwhile charity. If you would like to find out more about the charity, please visit www.jeansforgenes.org.

Medical Needs 

It is very important that you let us know if your child has a particular medical need such as asthma or allergies. If your child needs to take medicine whilst in school, please speak to our medical needs co-ordinator, Mrs Ceri Barrett You will need to complete a form to enable her to administer medication which must be given to her in a clearly labelled pharmacist’s packet or container with your child’ name, dosage and date printed on it.

Aldi Kit for Schools- Please help us…

How it works… Get involved!

Every time you spend over £30 in any Aldi store you’ll receive a Team GB sticker. Bring your stickers to school to help us complete our poster. Once we have 300 stickers on our poster we can send the poster back to receive an exclusive sports kit and to be in with a chance to win £20,000 for your school.

Thank you for your support.

As the summer term is drawing to a close, I have been reflecting on all the different things we have done throughout the year. It has been a fantastic year and it has been a privilege to be the head-teacher of such a wonderful school.

 

I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you; thanks to all of the staff for their hard work and support this year, the governors, who work tirelessly to support the school, the children for working hard and being a pleasure to teach and to the parents for being so supportive and working in an effective pa

rtnership with the school.

 

I am looking forward to September and all our exciting plans but in the meantime I hope you all have a lovely summer break.

Sponsored Cycle

On Tuesday 23rd July Mr Blackburn arranged a fantastic morning to raise funds for Kiera Byland to travel to the next INAS Games in Brisbane. Kiera is a young woman with a medical diagnosis of Rubinstein Taybi syndrome, Dyspraxia and autism traits. She is a double gold medal winner. It was a fantastic day, Kiera ran balance bike workshops with the younger children and the children also participated in a sponsored cycle around the field.

 

I would like to thank Mr Blackburn for organising such a successful day, along with Mr Wych and to our parents and school community for supporting this great event.   We look forward to Kiera visiting school again in September.

Key Dates

Mauldeth Road

 

Over the Summer holidays will see some changes to Mauldeth Road. Stockport Council will be relocating the bus stop, installing new street lighting and a puffin crossing.

The crossing will be operational from September and will enable our children and local residents to safely cross the road at any time. At our request, Stockport Council has agreed that Bob will remain at the crossing for half a term to teach the children how to use it safely.

Following this, Bob is being relocated in the local area and we will continue to ensure he is part of a school community. We are currently planning a special event in Bob’s honour for the Autumn term.

Information regarding the works from Stockport Council-

The improvement works are due to commence from Sunday 28/07/19 and will last for approximately 6 weeks. The construction works will be undertaken by George Cox & Son’s. The anticipated operational working hours are Monday to Friday, 8am – 4pm. Traffic management measures will be in place to maintain safe passage for pedestrians throughout the works. Two-way traffic will be maintained during construction so as not to disrupt traffic flows. A road closure will be applied on Sunday 28/7/19 to allow the contractor to remove the existing refuge safely.

A Fond Farewell

 

It is with great sadness that I have to inform you that two members of staff will be leaving us at the end of term. Miss Edwards (TA in Year 1) is moving to Durham to become an Assistant Psychologists.

 

Miss Heap (Year 1) will also be leaving us this year to take up a teaching post at Bridge Hall. Miss Heap has found a job that enables her to develop her specialism of PE across a whole school and she is very excited about this opportunity.

 

We would like to wish both the ladies all the best for the future and thank them for all their hard work.

Summer Fair

 

On Saturday 14th July FOTB organised an amazing Summer Fair. We were particularly proud of our budding entrepreneurs Annie and Iqra from Year 5 who made their own pompoms and origami animals. The fair raised a fantastic £2765.96!

Reading Challenge

Last week we had a visit from Stockport Library who came in to school to share this year’s exciting reading challenge.

 

This year’s theme is Space Chase, an out-of-this-world adventure inspired by the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing. The children have to read six books over the summer holidays to complete the challenge. Along the way the children will receive exciting rewards and very smelly stickers. This is a fantastic opportunity and I hope that many of our children will participate and visit their local library.

Thank you for your all support.

Busy, Busy

It is another busy term at Tithe Barn and time seems to be flying by! This week Reception had an amazing afternoon at the Town Hall and joined with lots of Stockport schools to sing a range of nursery rhymes. I would like to say thank you to Mrs Gholinia for organising such a lovely opportunity.

We are very proud of how we have developed our children’s knowledge and skills in IT, the development of our computer suite and the use of chrome books across the curriculum. In KS2 our children use a variety of Google Apps to enhance their education further and we will be hosting an evening for parents after half term to share the practice in school and ways parents can support their children at home. I do hope you can join us!

Tithe Barn Times 23rd April 2019

Thank You

It is wonderful to be back at school and I am extremely grateful for all the lovely messages I received during my absence.

I would like to say a huge thank you to Mr Blackburn and the wonderful team for taking care of the school in my absence.

We had a lovely final few weeks of term. We had our annual Road Safety week ‘Operation Eagle Eye’ which began on the 1st April. The children took part in different activities, which promoted their awareness of road safety.

We also had one of my favourite days of the year, our annual Eggstravaganza. We had some wonderful stalls from nail painting, to ice cream making to hunting eggs. The children made a fantastic effort to raise funds for school and our chosen charity Beanstalk.

This year’s charity was chosen in honor of our teacher Mrs Kelly who sadly passed away last year. Beanstalk is a national charity that helps children in the UK to learn to read and develop a love for books.   Further information is available at –

Thank you for your continued support

Keeping Safe On-line

E-Safety is an important part of keeping children safe at Tithe Barn Primary School. We have extensive security measures in place at school, which are monitored both internally and externally, to help safeguard pupils from potential dangers or unsuitable material. Any e-Safety incidents are recorded and managed.  E-Safety is taught to all pupils explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately online.

We can only be successful in keeping children safe online if we work with parents to ensure the e-Safety message is consistent. It is important that parents speak to their children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online.

As part of our participation in the Speak Out Stay Safe programme, our colleagues from the NSPCC delivered an online workshop session for parents. Please follow the link below for further advice and guidance on how to keep our children safe online.

https://www.nspcc.org.uk/what-we-do/about-us/partners/nspcc-o2-online-safety-partnership/

Following requests from parents we will be regularly sharing websites to support our families on how to keep safe on line. We hope you find them useful.

Operation Eagle Eye

 

Operation Eagle Eye

1st – 5th April 2019

 

We worked in conjunction with the Local Authority and had a week focused on road safety in school. There were various activities including learning how to cross the road safely, cycle safety and Year 6 were out patrolling the streets looking at speeding and parking in the local area.

 

The week began with our

Scoot Fit and Scooter Safety workshops. Every class participated in a session learning how to scoot safely. It was wonderful to have so many parents joining in with these sessions.

During Headsmart, the children in Year 4 investigated what would happen to an egg if riding a bike without a helmet.

Year 6 spent some time looking at the parking in the local area and monitoring the speed of the vehicles. They then analysed the data they collected.

Children in Year 5 worked in small groups to create vehicles and to investigate what would happen on impact.

I would like to thank Mr Stamper for co-coordinating these events and Mr Blackburn for organising the Scoot Fit session.

Recycling

Our recycling program continues to go from strength to strength. Led by our Eco Warriors we have recently recycled –

  • 2048 crisp packets
  • 1530 pens
  • 260 tooth brushes

What an amazing effort, which has raised £44.16. Please keep sending in your donations – we are making a difference!

Safeguarding

As a school we are committed to the Safeguarding of all our children. Our school policy can be found on our website. All staff have recently attended Safeguarding training and both Mr Blackburn, Miss D Vose and myself are trained Designated Leads for Safeguarding.

If you ever have any concerns regarding safeguarding please do not hesitate to contact myself, Miss D Vose or Mr Blackburn

TITHE BARN’S SPORTS DESK

A few exciting things that have happened in the sporting arena for our children

SPLASHING AROUND: Tithe Barn tackle the SWIMMATHON:

A small team of children from Y6, Y5 and Y4 – Isla, Lewis, Edie (Y6) Annie, Lilly (Y5), Sonny, William, Maryanne, Pippa, Abby and Amelie (Y4) entered a sponsored swimming event – hosted by Stockport Grammar and put on by The Rotary Club of Stockport Lamplighter. The basic idea was the more lengths they swam as a team then the more money they would raise for charity.

Each team was allocated an hour to swim and WOW did they swim! When combining their totals, both teams swam a magnificent 362 lengths. Impressive!

We thank them (and Miss Heap who organised the swim) for all their efforts.

RUN TO IT!

2 Tithe Barn sisters -Ellena and Megan- put their best foot forward this term to make up part of a new winning team. They joined 2 girls from Moss Hey School to run in a Manchester Harriers Primary School Relay race.

The format of the race was a relay. Each of the girls took a turn at running the course. With Megan setting a fantastic early pace, Ellena brought home the team in magnificent style – 1st place for the newly formed team.

Just shows what you can do when you are all fixed on the same goal!

Running is good for you I am told – I appreciate the many benefits to this sport. To this end, the girls are going to be the Running Ambassadors for Tithe Barn. I really want to pick up the challenge of smile for a mile. Clearly we have some hurdles to get over to achieve this aim. However, with this pair of talented runners leading the way, we will not be short of enthusiasm and drive.

Watch this space!

If you would like to explore running a little more, take a look at the website below…

http://www.stockportharriers.co.uk/club-events

WRAP UP, IT’S COLD OUT THERE!

Off to SLOVAKIA to train…

Tom (Y5) has spent a few days away from school at an intensive Ice hockey training camp in Tréncin. Tom was representing The North of England.

Lots of practise and a few games played. His team won 2 of the 3 matches they played – Tom getting on the score sheet too.

If you ever get the chance to visit Altrincham, take a look at the Ice Rink. You might find Tom flying around with his team mates – Manchester Storm Academy.

Well done Tom – lots of brilliant memories for you to take away from the trip I am sure.

 

Keep it under wraps…

Some of our talented athletes like to keep their talents under wraps.

When I find out about it, and with their approval obviously, I like to share their stories.

Below you can see Grace in Year 6 in her Lancashire lacrosse kit. Grace was selected to play for Lancs U13s Girls Lacrosse Team at an Inter Counties Tournament. This is very impressive seeing as she is 2 years under that age group.

The B Team she played on finished second in the tournament which again is very impressive.

Interested in Lacrosse? Talk to Nicole Smith ( Year 3 parent)
