Weekly Update 13/10/2017


This week has been fantastic!  We have seen lots of parents in school supporting us in so many ways as well as visiting us at the parents consultation evening (we will see more of you on Tuesday). We are really lucky to have a great community around us.


Thank you for all of the generous donations for our Harvest collection. The One Can Trust are going to be very pleased with their delivery. Thank you also to the families from Early Years and Nursery who came into school to support the children and watch the assembly. We were so impressed with the children - being able to perform after just a few weeks in school is an amazing achievement.


As many of you know we have had many successes with our school choir, Mrs Tennant is keen to promote this year's choir and would like to remind you that choir club is starting after half term, on Thursdays 3.15-4pm and is open for Years 3-6. Letters are on the website and need to be returned next week.


Our Year 5 and 6 football teams both had matches this week. The teams both played really well,  were superbly behaved and supported each other in difficult moments of the matches. Mr Jackson and Mr Harris were very happy with both teams and are looking forward to the next fixtures. There will be NO football club on Tuesday due to parents evening.


The Year 3 pupils thoroughly enjoyed their trip to the library on Wednesday to meet a local author and to listen to him read some of his new books. A big thank you to all the library staff for inviting us! We are all looking forward to visiting again soon.


Important letters regarding the Year 4 residential trip to Dell Farm have been sent home today. Please can you ensure the forms are filled in and returned as soon as possible so that we can send medical and dietary information to the residential centre. Please speak to Mrs Howlett if you have any questions or concerns.


Unfortunately, we are experiencing inconsiderate parking again.  We remind you that you should not be parking opposite the yellow zigzags at ANY point of the day – this is for the safety of the children.  Please apply a common sense approach when parking and try to avoid parking on the other side of road where a car is already parked as this creates a bottle neck effect – I have asked the local policing teams to be present at the drop off and collection times to support with parking. Thank you to the parents who are trying to raise awareness and support the safety of our children. Please can you be mindful of how and where you park - it is imperative that we all do our bit when it comes to the children’s safety.


Sadly we were informed that the external clubs provider has yet again cancelled sports clubs at very short notice. This is not the service we expected or agreed to, but please rest assured that we are working very hard to put something reliable into place after the half term.


Next Friday (20th October) we are supporting Break Through in Breast Cancer by wearing something PINK to school.  For £1 donation, your child can wear Mufti (sensible shoes) for the day - preferably with something pink! 


Our school council met last week to decide upon the other two charity Mufti days of the year. There were some great presentations that were produced for home learning and all of the class representatives put forward great cases. The two other chosen charities are Tiggywinkles and Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity.  We are very proud of the way the children really thought about their choices and spoke passionately about their chosen charities.


We hope you have a lovely weekend and see you all on Monday.
