Week Beginning 8th October 2018
Today we celebrated World Teachers’ Day in assembly with the children during which all teaching staff were presented with a cupcake and a certificate. We thank our hard working team for all they do for our children.
Today your child will have received the proof of their school photograph. If you wish to place an order, this can be done via the link on the photograph proof (our preferred method) or alternatively by completing the slip and return it with your cheque/cash.
Coming up next week…
On Monday we start the day celebrating the wonderful contribution that Grandparents make to the lives of their Grandchildren by inviting them to join us for breakfast. Timings for this event were sent out in last week’s bulletin but, to remind you they are as follows:
8:00- Year 5 and 6
8:10- Year 4
8:20 Year 3
8:30 Year 2
8:40 Year 1
If you have children in more than one year group, please chose a slot and attend with both/all siblings. Any families attending this event should have already notified the school office to enable us to provide adequate catering.
From the beginning of next week we will also begin collecting donations for the Harvest Festival celebration. We will be joined in assembly on Wednesday by Reverend Elizabeth who will be taking all donations to The Purley Food Hub who are a local independent food bank set up by Purley & Kenley Churches Together. Times of crisis can happen to anyone and we are pleased to be able to offer our support to those in need.
On Wednesday evening Mrs Randall, our English coordinator will be leading parent workshop for Key stage one (Year one and two) on English: Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling. This will take place in the school hall at 5:00pm. Please come along if you are free to find out more about this part of the curriculum.
On Thursday 11th we are holding our first class assembly of the year. If you have a child in class 12, please do join us in the hall for a 9:15 start.
Also on Thursday, Year one and two Cross Country representatives will be taking part in a special event from 10:00-11:30 and our Year three and four children from 2:00-3:30. We wish them the best of luck and thank Miss Smith for supporting this event. Be the best you can be!
School Council are meeting on Thursday 11th October at 12:30 in the ICT suite. If your child is their class rep they will need to have an early lunch!
On Friday evening we are looking forward to celebrating the school’s 60th birthday with a bang as we host our first ever Fireworks display! Doors open at 5:00pm. Wrap up warm and get ready for an evening of fun. Our thanks to the PTA for organising what we are sure will be a great event. Please can we remind parents that if you do not have a ticket you will not be granted entry. However, due to popular demand, we have sought further advice from the Health and Safety team at the local authority and reviewed our risk assessments- consequently we are able to release 100 more tickets. These will be on sale via the PTA page as of 10:00am tomorrow morning.
Have a great weekend!
