Awoyaya

9th October, 2014

Dear parents,

Head Teacher's Welcome

Welcome to the 2014/15 Attwool Sunflower School session.

We hope that your visit to the school website gives you an insight into the Attwool way of approaching education. Children, parents, staff, and board are immensely proud of our outstanding school and what we achieve together.

We thank the Almighty Father that saw us through the summer holidays. We also thank Him for conquering the EVD{Ebola Virus Disease} in Nigeria. We are however not taking this grace for granted. We have put the proper measures in place to help in the fight against this terrible disease. The school has provided 11 brand new toilets. Hand Sanitizers has been placed round the school premises. Hand wash and hand towels have been placed in all the restrooms now. We however, encourage our parents to equip children with their personal hand sanitizer.

School Aims

At Attwool Sunflower School, we provide equality of opportunity and a happy learning environment in our inclusive, diverse school. Our aim is for excellence in all aspects of the school and its provision. We are proud of our children’s positive attitude to work and play, encourage their creativity, build on their strengths and value the importance of their happiness and well-being.

We appreciate the strong links we have with our families and strive to reach out to the community, while supporting our children to be responsible citizens and to learn to look after our world.

We provide innovative and reflective teaching which inspires and challenges all children and we aim to bring out the full potential of every child so that they flourish, make progress and experience joy in learning.

We will continue to improve our facilities for the benefit of children, staff, parents and the wider community in a sustainable way and to manage a changing environment carefully to ensure that it meets the needs of our stakeholders.  We try to live up to this vision and each year set ourselves challenges to improve even further.

We are all proud of the way our children work and play together and their enthusiasm for learning.  Our aim is for all our children to come each day to school, looking forward to new challenges, excited by the learning on offer and  thrilled by the possibilities opening up for them.  We want them to feel safe and secure, grounded in supportive structures and relationships and developing confidence in their own capacity to face the challenges of the wider world. Whatever our children’s starting points, we aim to ensure that they all make outstanding progress during their time with us. Parents, governors and staff are keen to maintain the friendly family feel of the school and we work hard to ensure that we keep all the best things about our school as we continue to grow and welcome 2-3 year olds into the playgroup 2 this year.

Changes: the following changes have taken place:

  •          Primary Building: year 1 -6 has moved to a new building. This is building that boarders occupied before now.
  •          Sinks have been placed on the playground for pupils to wash their hand when they their break time is over.
  •          A cleaner now sits in the toilet to monitor the activities in the restrooms.
  •          There is a new Human Resource department headed by Mrs Ojieabu. Complaints and suggestions should be forwarded to HR.

Curriculum guide: our curriculum guide for the session will go on the school website on Friday 26th October, 2014. Parents are advised to download them and work with children from home to get the best out of them.

New subjects: Three new subjects have been added to the children’s work. This is leadership, character traits and culture. In leadership, we will be looking at the 7 habits of a leader. In character traits, we will have a weekly theme and it will be taught for 20 minutes per week. Culture is also a new topic. The children will be learning the Chinese culture this first half tem and we will study 7 cultures in total for the session. These three subjects are to broaden our pupils’ horizon and prepare them for the future. Exams will not be written for these subjects but they will be assessed.

School uniform:

 Pupils should appear neat and tidy at all times. Their uniforms should be washed and ironed. Boys should have a clean low cut while girls should come in neat corn rows or braids. Attachment and beads are not allowed in primary. Preschoolers can use white and blue beads. Afros are not allowed for boys and girls are not allowed to pack their hair to school without weaving them.

Bus pick up:

Children that come on the bus should get ready before the bus come at the allocated time 2 minutes  has been allocated for the buses to wait for each family and after this the bus will leave. This is because we had issues with delays in starting classes or starting without the children on the bus. This is also to avoid delaying parents who leave home after their child/children must have gone to school on the bus.

Preschoolers on the bus will leave with primary at 2pm from this session.

Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to say how humbled I am to have been appointed Head Teacher at the nursery and primary in Awoyaya campus, and look forward to working closely with the wonderful children, parents, staff and board to continue to build on the many strengths of the school and to realise our ambitious goals for all our children. 

I hope you enjoy our website and look forward to welcoming you to our school.

​​​​Warm Regards,

Curriculum Overview

Playgroup, Nursery & Reception

Overview

We aim to provide children in our Preschool (early years) with educational experiences which will help them develop a positive approach to learning. By creating a learning environment where children feel at home, they will be more willing to explore new concepts and ideas.

Self-discipline, a sense of responsibility, and respect for others are encouraged. Classroom walls are covered with displays of children's art and craft, as well as language-based information to help them develop literacy skills.

Displays of educational material related to topics being studied and an ever changing role-play area helps further stimulate their enthusiasm.

 

The classes for two to five year olds provide a stimulating and creative environment where young children may experience a wide range of activities which lead into Key Stage 1 of the National Curriculum of England combined with the Nigerian curriculum. These three years are very important as they form the basis of a child's future education. Language and literacy covers important aspects of language development and provides the foundation for literacy. Children are helped to acquire competence in English as soon as possible. Particular emphasis is laid on speaking and listening and in pre-reading and pre-writing activities. In Mathematics children are introduced to important aspects of mathematical understanding and are provided with the foundation for Numeracy. This is achieved through practical activities and by using and understanding simple mathematical language. Children acquire a basic knowledge and understanding of their environment, other people and features of the natural and man-made world. Personal and social development focuses on children learning how to work, play, co-operate with others and function in a group beyond the family. The physical development programme aims to help children develop physical control, mobility, awareness of space and manipulative skills in indoor and outdoor environments. Children are actively encouraged to establish positive attitudes towards a healthy and active way of life. Creative development focuses on stimulating children's imagination and their ability to communicate and express ideas and feelings in a creative way.
