Mrs Allen | Headteacher at the Federation of Rudham & Weasenham Church of England Primary Academys

Welcome to my Blog!

I aim to update this page as often as possible to keep you up-to-date with new and interesting information about both the schools within the Federation. Posts will consist of text, photos, samples of work and anything else newsworthy!

We have had to close both of the Academies today due to the bad weather. It is not safe for either children or staff to travel.

New Screens! On 22nd February – each class and hall had a new Clever Touch Plus screen installed. The staff and children have been very excited by the addition of this high tech screen. Over the next few weeks the staff will  have training and will be able to use the screens to their full potential. Watch this space!

Ms Ojelade joined us on 19th February as our new Year 3/4 teacher at Rudham. I would like to welcome her to our Federation.

The children are getting very excited about our trip to France on 22nd March. I am sure you will see photos when we return.

Over the next few weeks, the teachers will be thinking more about how they teach spelling. Mrs Fowler and Mrs Felton led a session with each of the schools during collective worship to talk to the children about their favourite words. The children came up with some fantastic words! We will be putting a display of these in each school. The teachers have been thinking about which spelling patterns and words their classes need to learn and how best to teach these. Each classroom will have a spelling/phonics display to show which letter patterns and words the children have been learning. There is also a display of tricky words in each classroom that the children and adults have come up with. In a few weeks time, each teacher will be holding a phonics/spelling workshop with the parents to show them how we teach phonics/spelling and to take part in some activities with their children. There will also be an event to do with spelling in each school later this term!

Welcome back!

I hope that you have all had a lovely summer break and are ready to come back to school.

Just before the break the Federation was assessed for the RE Quality Mark – I am so pleased to say that the Federation was awarded GOLD! I massive thank you to the children who took part in the assessment and also Mrs Felton and the staff of all their hard work. I hope that there will be a new banner on our website soon.

I have been moving things around on the website. Under the Parent and Carers section for each school, you will now find information relating to Pupil Premium and also SEN and PE Funding. At the moment this information is also under the Policies section.

I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow – ready for the start of our new year.
