Week Beginning 12th January 2015

Week Beginning Monday 12th January…


Welcome back to the new term, and wishing everyone a HAPPY NEW YEAR! The children have all settled well after the Christmas break and have enjoyed the first week back.  Here is what is coming up next week…


For one week only our Year 5 and Year 4 swimming will swap over next week.  Year 5 will be swimming on Monday 12th January and Year 4 on Tuesday 4th January. The timings on these days will not be any different.


On Tuesday 13th January our Year 2 children are having a ‘Fire of London’ day and we have suggested that they may like to come to school dressed in Stuart/Victorian style clothing to really enable them to get into role.  We are delighted to welcome the freshwater theatre company to The Hayes as our Year 2 children will take part in a special ‘Great fire of London’ workshop during the morning.


On Wednesday 14th January our Year 6 children will be visiting The Fairfield Halls Croydon, where they will watch ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ performed by Shakespeare for kids.  This will fit in with the Shakespeare unit they will be studying in school this term.  If you are a parent of a child in Year 6 we will see you at Kenley station between 8.40- 9.00am for a registration of the children before they leave on the train immediately after this.  Don’t forget they will need to bring in packed lunches to school on this day.


On Thursday ‘wake up fit club’ begins again before school between 8.00-8.45am, if your child is attending you will have already arranged this with Fit Clubs for school.


Also on Thursday, the canteen is offering a special menu at lunchtime for ‘Census Day’. Our school catering funding is linked to how many children take up school dinners as part of the Universal Free School Meals so we would encourage children, particularly those in Reception and Key Stage 1, to take up a school dinner for this day as funding for the next financial year will be based on this. Naturally, the greater funding we receive, the more opportunities we will be able to offer within school. The menu for the day is: Beef burger in a bun OR veggie burger in a bun, both with potato wedges OR jacket potato with tuna mayo or cheese AND crunchy coleslaw AND baked beans AND seasonal salad AND freshly baked bread AND arctic roll OR fresh fruit platter.


After school on Thursday 15th we invite parents to come to our termly departmental meetings, in which there will be an opportunity to find out about our expectations in writing and mathematics, particularly in light of the changes in the National Curriculum that came into effect from September 2014.  We will also be making suggestions outlining how you can help your child at home and we are sure that you will find these meetings helpful. The Reception, Year 1 and 2 meeting will take place at 6.00pm, Year 3 & 4 at 6.30 and Year 5&6 at 7.00pm.


We would like to take this opportunity of congratulating Jasmine Orazietti in Year 6 and Martha Goodwin in Year 5 who performed 21 times in the pantomime of Beauty and the Beast (Redhill). Well done Jasmine and Martha what a great achievement!


Have a super weekend.
