Tithe Barn Times – 19th November 2018

Learning Opportunities

Once again, this term seems to be flying by and there are lots of exciting activities taking place in school.

From the Stone Age to the Space Race our new topics are encouraging our children to be inquisitive learners who are curious about the world around them.   We are continuing to showcase all the different aspects of learning taking place in school via our E-schools platform and our YouTube channel Tithe Barn TV.


Stone Age Visitor

Years 3 and 4 had an exciting visitor on Wednesday 14th November. As part of their topic of the Stone Age their visitor came to discuss what it was like and how things changed through the different ages. It was a highly engaging morning and enabled the children to be immersed in their learning.


Christmas Fair

11 am – 2pm.

We will be serving lunch from 12 pm. There will be Santa’s Grotto, Photo Booth Fun, Toy Stalls and a Secret Present Room. Christmas Crafts and Fun Games. It will be another fantastic event.

We will also be selling raffle tickets for some fantastic prizes.

KS2 Christmas Carol Concert

This year we have decided to make some small changes to our KS2 Carol Concert, due to a growing number of children finding it difficult to attend during the evening we will now be having two performances in the day.

This year’s concert will take place on Wednesday 12th December with performances at 9.30 am and 2 pm. We do hope you can join us. If you are unable to attend we will be filming the concert and sharing it via E-Schools.

Infant Nativity

The KS1 and Reception Nativity will take place on 11th December at 1.30pm and 13th December at 9.30 am. We will also be filming the Nativity and sharing it via E-schools.

Vision for Tithe Barn

We have spent the last 12 months reviewing our school vision with our children, staff and governors. We would like to share our ideas with parents and gather your opinions. We would like to invite you to a ‘Vision Afternoon’ on Wednesday 21st November at 2pm. I look forward to seeing you then. Following this meeting we will then send out further information to all of our parents.

Learning at Tithe Barn

As part of our approach to developing learners at Tithe Barn we now have a weekly assembly on a Friday where every class shares something they have been learning about that week. All of the children take it in turns to speak and share what their class has been doing. We have shared one of the assemblies via E-schools if you wish to watch it.

Bags to School

Thank you to everyone who donated unwanted items in our recent Bags2Schools Collection. We raised an amazing £220.40.

School Crossing

Please can I remind parents and children of the importance of crossing the road using both our wonderful lollipop person Bob and the island. It is extremely important that we keep every member of our community safe.

Thank you for your support with this matter

Lucas’ Garden Baubles

We will be decorating Lucas’ Garden in preparation for the Christmas Fair this Sunday.

If you would like to send in a bauble to decorate the garden, please send it to school by Thursday 22nd November.

The children will be decorating the garden in the afternoon.

Parents Evening

Thank you to all of our parents who attended our recent parents’ evening. If you were unable to attend please see your child’s class teacher to make an appointment as soon as you can.

Thank you
