24th February to 9th March
At Silchester we will be learning more about bananas and finding out how we can help make bananas fair.
Sunday 2nd March - The Fairtrade Committee will be taking part in the service at St Mary's Church, Silchester.
Thursday 6th March, 2.30pm in the hall- we welcome Dorothy Agard, a banana producer from St Lucia to talk to Silchester School to hear first hand what Fairtrade means to farmers. This will be followed by a Fairtrade event showcasing the work each class has been doing during the fortnight. Stalls sep up be every class in th eschool to display the work they have been doing during Fairtrade Fortnight. We do hope many of you will be able to join us for refreshments cooked by the Fairtrade Committee (with the help of Mrs Purnell and Mrs Hockley) after the talk.
A huge thank you to all of the parents who attended the 'mindset' session on the Thursday 23rd Jan. It was as usual very comforting to see the support we have from the Silchester parent body and also the drive that they have to give their children the best possible education!
I do hope that you were able to take something from it and remember the importance of:
- Challenge and struggle
- Not I can't, rather I can't yet
- Praising the process and specific behaviours rather than the person
I do hope some of you have come to terms with the water/wine puzzle.
Attached should hopefully be the powerpoint from the evening.
Once again, many thanks for giving up your valuable time.
Mr Ronnie Green
The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 for pupils registered as eligible for free school meals, looked after children and those from families with parents in the Armed Forces. The aim of the Pupil Premium is to close the attainment gap between low-income and other disadvantaged families and their peers.
At Silchester CE Primary School the Pupil Premium has been used to fund additional Learning Support Assistant hours, the purchasing of resources to support specific difficulties, the employment of high quality teachers and the subsidising of residential visits. All of these are to enable pupils to receive a broad and balanced curriculum, tailored to their requirements.
