Week beginning 14th September 2015
Coming up next week…
We are delighted to welcome everybody back to school after the summer break and are pleased to report that the children have settled into their new classes and year groups really well. We especially welcome all of our new starters. They are all looking very smart in their full school uniforms too! Thank you Mums and Dads! You could also help us by ensuring that all items of uniform including PE kits have your child’s name and class on them, to assist us in returning lost items.
We look forward to welcoming our new Reception pupils for their start of half days next week. Parents of children in Reception are also invited to an additional meeting called ‘How we learn in Reception’ which will take place at 6.30 on Wednesday 23rd September in your child’s classroom.
The rest of the curriculum evenings will also take place on the 23rd September at the following times:
Year 1 – 3.30pm in Class 1
Year 2 – 4.00pm in Class 3

On Friday 18th September we will be participating in ‘Jeans for Genes’ Day where the children can wear jeans instead of trousers / skirts for the day for a £1 donation to support the work that the charity do. A letter will follow early next week.
We will have an additional meeting for Year 5 and 6 parents to talk through the application process for secondary school on Thursday 24th September at 2.15pm. We will have someone from Admissions attend the meeting to answer any queries.
