If there are any outstanding letters, please return them to the office by Monday, as the School Nurse will be collecting them early next week. Please return even if you do not give permission for your child to have the vaccine, or you have made alternative arrangements. Thank you

Thank you to everyone for your support in what has been a busy and challenging week.

We have had a lovely day supporting Macmillan Cancer nurses. Thank you to everyone for their generous contributions, to Mrs Glenys Edwards, in the kitchen for making tray bakes for everyone and for Clams bakery for donating red velvet cake. Yum! So far we have raised £150. Brilliant!

Please find attached a poster regarding this year’s harvest supper.

I hope you have all had a good second full week back in school. It’s great to see everyone settling back in so well.

Just a polite reminder to all that bikes and scooters should not be ridden in the school grounds. Please dismount at the gate. Thank you.

WEEKLY UPDATE 10th September

Dear All,

Thank you to everyone who was able to attend our class meetings. I hope you found them useful and informative. Class letters and topic webs were sent out earlier today, however, if you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher.

Well done to our Y5/6 children who have made a start on tidying our school grounds today. Thank you to everyone who has offered to help in the school grounds. This will make a huge difference to the children’s environment and play areas. If anyone else is able to volunteer please let me know.

As we move into the Autumn term could you please ensure your child has a coat in school so he/she is able to go outside even if it is raining. Thank you.

WEEKLY UPDATE 3rd September

Dear All,

What a quick week!

It was so good to see everyone back on Thursday looking so happy and well rested.

Please find attached a pupil information sheet. If your contact details etc have changed in the last 12 months please complete and return a new form. If everything is as it was last September you do not need to do anything. If you would like a hard copy, please collect one from the main entrance.

Next week we will be holding our class meetings. Unfortunately we cannot hold face to face meetings, so I will be sending out TEAMS links later today.

These meeting are really important as they will give you general information about your child’s class routines, etc, but also guidance and ways to help your child with homework etc. They will be as informal as possible, and an opportunity for you to clarify any issues and expectations. A class letter will also be sent out with more detailed information. As soon as we are able to, we will hold live, additional class meetings.

PE will start next week. Children need to wear appropriate clothing to school eg plain jogging bottoms/leggings, a plain t-shirt and trainers, or daps. They will also need a school sweatshirt/jumper. Please avoid any branded/logo sportswear.

Homework-There will be no homework next week. We will start homework wk beginning 13th September.

Grounds Day for Y5/6 on Friday 10th September. Children can come to school in outdoor clothing and suitable footwear. We have some gardening gloves, but if they have their own, that would be really helpful.

Next week:

  • Mon 6th-4:15pm Foundation Phase Class Meeting
  • Tuesday 7th-Y3/4 PE
  • Weds 8th-4:15pm Y3/4 Class meeting
  • Foundation Phase PE
  • Thurs 9th-4:15pm Y5/6 Class Meeting; Y5/6 PE
  • Fri 10th-Y5/6 Grounds Day.

A newsletter with provisional dates will be emailed out on Monday.

Have a lovely weekend.

Best wishes,

Kathryn Marshall
