We have had a really good week of Internet Safety. All children participated in computing/coding workshops and assemblies to help them improve their awareness of how to be safe online. Parents even joined in. Many thanks to Ms Booth for organising a fantastic week. On Monday our Year 6 children are attending the matinee performance of Oliver at Riddlesdown – we really look forward to this production! Your child will require a packed lunch.
Run Club begins on Tuesday morning and children allocated a place should meet Mrs Olley in the foyer at 8:10am wearing appropriate running clothes and trainers. Please ensure they have their uniforms in their bags as they will be required to change afterwards. The children will be completing mile 1 of their half marathon challenge.
The Infant Choir will be attending their first rehearsal in the school hall on Tuesday to prepare for the CSMA Festival at The Fairfield Halls in March. This will finish at 3pm.
The children in Class 2 will be leading our whole school assembly on Wednesday. If you have a child in this class, please join us in the school hall from 9:15am. We look forward to seeing you!
Mrs Raftery will be joining us in assembly on February 14th to inform the children about the forth coming Hayes got Talent Competition. This is a talent contest which is open to all year groups. More information will come your way shortly from the PTA.
The children in the Junior CSMA choir will also begin Area Rehearsals this week on Friday. Originally, we were having rehearsals at The Hayes, but we now need to travel to Park Hill Primary. Due to the late notice, CSMA will provide a coach for us. The children will be back to school at approximately 405pm. Choir will continue on Tuesdays until 420pm, as usual.
We break up for half term on Friday finishing at normal time. There will be a Valentine’s cake sale on the playground after school with cakes available from 50p and the Boys football team have a match against Beaumont.
Lastly, our school council have been working hard to think of ways they can help to promote healthy lifestyles and after half term they will be introducing a fruit tuck shop at morning break times. The children will be able to purchase a piece of fruit for 30p to enjoy during the break time. This will initially include apples, oranges, pears and bananas. The tuck shop is not set up to make profit just to promote healthy living and encourage children to eat their 5 a day. If any profit is made it will be reinvested in fruit for the following week including seasonal products such as melons, strawberries or plums, if affordable.
We wish you all a really happy and restful half term break and look forward to welcoming you back to school on Monday 24th February.
