Dear Parent/Guardian,

PTA

We are now making plans for the Christmas Bazaar which will run after school this year on Thursday 19th December. The children are invited to come into school in Christmas jumper mufti on Friday 6th December and the children in years R, 1 and 2 are asked to bring in some chocolate or sweets and the children in years 3, 4, 5 and 6 are asked to bring in a bottle. These are for the tombolas. We would also like any gifts for adults for the secrets room and children’s gifts to go under the tree.

The children’s discos are running on Friday 6th December. Please book your places, tickets are £2.50 each if paid for by Friday 29th November. Any late orders will be charged at £3.00 per ticket.

Children in Need

We raised £105-79 for Children in need. Thank you.

Book Fair

Thank you for supporting the Book Fair. We were able to choose £81-30 worth of books for the classrooms from the commission.

Warm clothing

Please can you ensure that your children have sufficiently warm clothing to wear outside at playtimes. The children will go outside in most weathers so coats, hats and gloves are important. They also need warm PE kits for outdoor PE, and may want gloves for this too.

Christmas production

Rehearsals are well under way for the YR, 1 and 2 Christmas production. This will run on Thursday 12th and Friday 13th December at 2pm. Tickets will be on sale from Thursday 28th November through Parentpay and will be limited to 3 tickets over the 2 performances in the first instance. Once everyone has had the opportunity to purchase their tickets, and remaining spaces will be available on a first come first served basis.

Christmas crafts breakfast

You are invited to come and share in some Christmas crafts with your children over a drink and pastry on Friday 13th December from 8.15-9.30am.

Woodwind lessons

Rob Clarke is a specialist music teacher who comes into school to teach individual woodwind lessons.  He offers teaching for all woodwind instruments for children in KS2 and also recorder lessons for Y2 children. If you are interested in any of these please contact the school office for more information.

Celebration Assembly

Everyone is welcome to attend our celebration assemblies, where we celebrate children’s successes both in and out of the classroom. Each class will take it in turns to share some of their learning. This will be on Friday afternoons at 2.40pm-3.00pm.The dates on which the classes will be sharing their learning are; 29/11-YR, 6/12-Y5 and 6, 13/12- YR,1,2 production, 10/01-Y3/4, 17/01- Y1/2, 24/01- YR, 31/01- Y5/6. Please remember that this is the children’s time of worship for the day and we ask you to respect that. There is a crèche available for younger children in the YR classroom to ensure that the children can be heard as they share their hard work with everyone.

Food allergies

Please be mindful that we have children in school with nut allergies. We ask that you do not put items with nuts or nut products into lunchboxes.
