The Psychology Service have produced advice and guidance for for parents/carers and education staff to help them support children and young people’s emotional wellbeing and resilience during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Teacher and parents/carers are also able to book 30 minute telephone consultations if needed for support. The guidance can be viewed at https://schools.leicester.gov.uk/supportingemotionalwellbeing.
During Folvilles closure due to the pandemic your children will probably be using technology a lot more. I would like to remind you that apps such as Tik Tok, Snapchat, Facebook, Whats app and Instagram all need to monitored regularly to ensure that you know who your child/children are communicating with. Games such as Roblox, Fortnite and minecraft also need monitoring as not all users are children.
You can find step by step guides on how to make accounts private on the school website.

Last week, we saw some almighty giants constructed in Year 4! The year group have been reading The Iron Man and have incorporated some of their Electricity knowledge to build an Iron Man with eyes that could be switched on and off. Thanks to all those who helped to provide materials and were there to help complete these towering giants. As you can see from the pictures, the results were very impressive - well done all!
The school celebrated NSPCC number day a few weeks ago, a total of £220 was raised! Throughout the day children developed their problem solving skills and also rocked out on Timestables Rockstars. It was great to see some very creative outfits as some dressed up for digits or came as a Rockstar. The day was rounded of with the live draw for the first round of the NSPCC Rockstars Cup - thanks to our local "Rockstars" for coming along!
Please make your children aware of stranger danger, click the link below for help and guidance.
On Monday 11th November, all of Year 4 thoroughly enjoyed having a "comfy read". The children brought in their favourite books, alongside pillows, blankets and even some cuddly teddy bears to read to! There will be more comfy reading sessions planned in the new year!
We were invited to take a group of children to spend the day at the Space Centre, thanks to our association with De Montfort University. The RAF sponsored a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) Day and we had lots of exciting experiences building rockets, watching explosions and learning about life in space. We spent all day with Colin, a young pilot, who told us all about life in the RAF. Everyone had a great time and hopefully we have inspired some future scientists and engineers.
Our first pupils to quiz with Accelerated Reader.
A huge well done to the Folville's first ever Times Tables Rockstars, in Year 3 & 4, who have earnt the most coins or shown the most improvement in their Times Tables for September. They have now entered the Rockstars Hall of Fame! Keep on rocking out and you could be the winner for October!
Iron Man Construction Afternoon
On Wednesday 1st May, Year 4 pupils and their parents/ careers constructed some almighty and very impressive Iron Men which Year 4 have been reading as their class book. Prior to the afternoon children have created and elaborately performed their own Iron Man poems using the poet Michael Rosen as in inspiration for their performance poetry. The designs involved plenty of cardboard boxes, foil and many other materials to help construct and decorate the Iron Man. As part of their design they used their knowledge of the Iron Man so many of the Iron men only had one ear as this was lost following a terrible fall early in the story. Well done and thank you to all the parents that were involved. We even managed to fill the stage in the hall with Iron Men, quite a sight to behold!
