The Golden Rules

At Canterbury we use our Golden Rules as a whole school approach to enhance self-esteem, positive behaviour and relationships within the school and beyond. All of the children and adults in school are involved.
The Golden Rules outline behaviours that show respect and caring towards one another and represent a moral code covering respect for myself, respect for others and respect for property. The Golden Rules are displayed in classrooms, corridors and throughout the school.

During this week each child will have a copy of the Golden Rules stuck into their homework diary or their contact book so that they have them with them at all times. It would be really helpful if you talk to your child about them. Thank you.


Las Palmas a 14 de octubre de 2019
Estimados padres:
Este año y como hemos venido haciendo hasta ahora, realizaremos actividades relacionadas con Halloween. Al igual que el año pasado, el miércoles 30 de octubre, los alumnos podrán venir disfrazados desde casa o simplemente traer puesto accesorios como orejas de gato, un sombrero, la cara pintada con algún motivo de esta celebración, etc.. .
Los alumnos que tengan educación física, deberán traer las zapatillas deportivas puestas o traerlas en una bolsa ya que igualmente harán actividades deportivas.  

Les recordamos que el colegio permanecerá cerrado el jueves 31 y el viernes 1 de noviembre.

Un cordial saludo,
Lindsay Gale
Directora de Primaria

Dear parents, 
On Wednesday 30th October the children may come to school dressed up in costume to celebrate Halloween. There is no need to go out and buy a costume if the children don’t have one at home. They could simply wear an accessory like cat ears, a hat etc. Pupils with P.E., should bring their trainers as they will still do P.E.

We would like to remind you that school will be closed on Thursday 31st November and Friday 1st    November.

Yours sincerely,
Lindsay Gale
Head of Primary

Code Week!

To celebrate European Code Week, Years 3 and 4 were given the opportunity to spend some of their lunchtime in the computer room using Scratch 3.0.
The response was incredible!
100 children in Years 3 and 4 chose to do this today!
They all had a lot of fun. 

We have just installed the new version of Scratch in the primary school so it was a good opportunity to get to grips with the changes from the last version. Year 4 are also making animations in Scratch this term as part of their learning in computing lessons.
Scratch is a block-based programming language which is designed for children. It is fun and it boosts creativity, problem-solving skills and encourages collaboration.  

In Canterbury School. we use Scratch Jr in Years 2 and 3, progressing to Scratch desktop in Year 4 (making animations), Year 5 (drawing shapes) and Year 6 (making games and quizzes).

Thank you very much to all my helpers from Years 3 and 5 today! You deserve your OCEAN POINTS!
