Welcome to Coquet Park First School

Welcome Message  

 

Dear Parents, Carers and visitors to our school,

Coquet Park First School is a happy, one form entry coastal school that welcomes children from 3 to 9 years old. 

We aim to promote a safe and secure environment in which children learn to be members of a caring community. We believe that children are able to achieve their full potential in a happy and supportive environment, whilst enjoying their time in school.

I am privileged to work with enthusiastic, caring and hard working pupils supported by a dedicated, talented staff and a skilled Governing Body.  As a whole school community, we work closely in partnership with parents and other family members to make every day a valuable and memorable learning experience for all pupils. Through this, we aim to encourage every child to become confident, caring individuals with a love of learning and lifelong skills to flourish in future years.

Myself and the senior leadership team work closely together to ensure that high standards in teaching, learning and communication are constantly maintained. We strive to address any issues swiftly and effectively whilst working on future key initiatives that move us forward.

We warmly welcome visits from new parents. Please contact the School Office to arrange an appointment. Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you have any queries.

Mrs C. Ward  

Headteacher

 

Remembrance Day

Children in all classes created their own poppies which were displayed around the nursery gazebo. A fitting tribute to those who fought for us.

Children in Need 2020

We all enjoyed coming to school in spots, stripes and bright colours for this year's Children in Need Day. We raised an amazing amount of £221.10 to benefit those in need.

Harvest Festival

The children have celebrated ‘Harvest Festival’ in a different way this year but it has been equally enjoyable. 

Nursery children have explored vegetables describing them and then printing with them.  They have made scarecrow heads on sticks with recycled paper bags and collage materials. 

Reception children have chosen to make an individual ‘Harvest Wreath’ from sticks, a ‘grain frame’ or heart shape to represent harvest.  They have shared a harvest poem and learned about the job of the farmer and all the different foods that contribute to their breakfast. 

Year 1 have made scarecrow faces with paper plates, demonstrating ‘Design and Technology’ sewing techniques and have written poems using the word ‘autumn’ to develop their ideas about autumn and harvest.  In R.E. they have explored the tradition of ‘Harvest Festival’. 

Year 2 have combined their thoughts on what they are grateful for with their ‘Design and Technology’ skills to create a 3D pumpkin.  They have also shared their thoughts on the poem ‘Harvest Moon’. 

Year 3 have been learning about the artist ‘Giuseppe Arcimboldo’ with reference to ‘Autumn Portrait’ as the inspiration and starting point for their work for Harvest Festival.  They have also looked at poetry and have written their own acrostic poem using the word ‘harvest’.

Year 4 have been looking at the important message that ‘Harvest Festival’ celebrates and have produced artwork based on ‘thankfulness’ incorporating a ‘pointillism’ tree.  They have also worked across the curriculum, linking with Geography, to explore the air miles some food travels to be available in the U.K.

We have celebrated this wonderful work by creating a whole school display.  Whilst these are different times we are glad that children were still able to learn about and celebrate Harvest Festival in school. 

Thank you for your support
