Mr Maksymiw's news w/c 6th November
The children in Year 4 and Year 6 are all safely back in school after a great adventure in Wales and Derbyshire. We were very lucky with the weather, which was cold but crisp with some sunny days. Luckily the rain stayed away.
Both groups had the chance to experience a range of outdoor activities from walking up a mountain to abseiling down a railway bridge. They built rafts and went kayaking , scrambled over rocks and explored dark and dank caves. All the children had moments when they had to be brave and try something that they would normally shy away from. But I am proud to say that all the children challenged themselves and overcame their fears to try something new.
I also want to say a big thank you to all the staff who accompanied the children. I hope you have recovered!

You may have noticed that our Key Stage 2 library area in the middle of school looks like it needs some attention. You would be right! The reason it looks a bit untidy is because we planning to move this library down to the Orchard, where the old IT suite used to be. The library team have drawn up plans to create a new and exciting reading space with lots of new books for the children to choose from. In the next few weeks the books from the existing library will disappear and be added to the new books we have bought. There are two things that you can do to help this process. Firstly, could you have a look around your house to see if there are any books with an Outwoods Edge label inside. We would be most grateful if you could return them. Secondly, if you would like to help with the cataloguing of books and organisation of the library then we would like to hear from you. Please pop into reception and pass on your name. Thank you.

Mr Maksymiw's news w/c 23rd October
Welcome back to school after the half term break. I hope that you had a good week and that the children have ‘recharged their batteries’ ready for the new start.
I wanted the thank everyone who made a Harvest donation of fruit, vegetables, packets or tins. The food went to Rainbows Children’s Hospice and The Carpenters Arms where it was gratefully received. We also enjoyed our Scarecrow Walk and it was lovely to see so many parents join us. The children had a good time and had the opportunity to explore the area round school. We had some tired children when they returned from the walk.
We are now looking forward to a new half term. Some children are starting new topics whereas others are preparing for their residential visits. You will have a chance to see their work so far at Parents Evening this week
