    Welcome to this week's Parkland Post - we have been enjoying the sunny weather this week.  A reminder that children can wear summer uniforms and on warm days, please make sure your child is wearing sunscreen, and that they bring a hat and a water bottle so they can stay safe in the sun.  Please follow this link to see which items can be worn during the summer term:

    Please, can you also ensure that your child is bringing and wearing the correct PE kit and school shoes and that any earrings worn are small studs.  Thank you for your support of this.

    Welcome to this week's Parkland Post - the summer term is hurtling along at great speed!  The weather has been so much warmer this week which has really lifted everyone's spirits - we have begun planting our sunflowers ready for our academy competition to see who can grow the tallest sunflower!  Mrs Wierzbianski received a letter from the Eco Warriors to request new equipment for them to use when tending to our green spaces.  We have also applied for a grant from the Royal Horticultural Society to use on grey to green projects so watch this space for further details and keep your fingers crossed that we are awarded the grant.

    Welcome to this week's Parkland Post!  It has been another busy week filled with learning and working together to succeed.  We began the week reading Dear Earth to celebrate World Earth Day, each class discussed what they could do to help take care of our world and the footprint we leave behind.  This links well to many of our Ways of Being: Show You Care; Do What Matters Most and Succeed Together.

    Welcome to this week's Parkland Post - what a wild weather week it has been!  We began the week celebrating World Art Day in our whole school assembly with a book called 'The Artist' - why not ask your child what they remember about the book.  The children were then able to explore their own favourite artists in a class assembly on Wednesday.  Next week's theme for the week is Earth Day which is taking place on Monday the 22nd April - Mrs Wierzbianski has picked out a book which she will share with the children during assembly.

    Welcome to the final Parkland Post of the spring term!  It has been a busy old term and it has been wonderful to reflect on all of the positive things going on in our academy.  I love how well attended our events have been whether it has been Book at Bedtime, Family Breakfast or our Express Yourself Day for Children's Mental Health Week.  We've had success at the various Trust sports competitions which have been expertly run by students and staff at Co-op Academy Priesthorpe and a number of our Year 6 pupils have taken part in the Trust Spelling Bee and Maths Olympics events. We have embodied one of our Ways of Being - Succeed Together.
