Week beginning 17th October 2022
A Massive Thank You: Wow, Wow, Wow! Thank you to our amazing PTA for organising our spectacular fireworks evening, last night. It was wonderful to come together as a community for this event and we hope that those of you who came, enjoyed it as much as we did! A massive thank you to the PTA for organising this event and to all the volunteers who helped and led stalls during the day. Without you, this would not have been possible. The PTA will let you know how much was raised, asap! Photos for this event can be found on the Gallery, on our website.
Congratulations to our mixed football team who won their first match of the season, against Kenley Primary School, with a score of 5-1. Our goal scorers were: Isaac T (1), Lilybell (1), Darcy (2) and Seamus (1). Well done team, coaches and Miss Hale!
Reading Meeting: on Monday, we would like to remind you that Mrs Farr (our Reading/Phonics Leader) will be leading a reading meeting in the hall, at 9am. All parents are welcome to attend but those with children in Reception or KS1 or those with reluctant readers may find this meeting most useful. Please do come along to learn more about our new reading scheme, Little Wandle, and about how you can support your children’s progress and love of reading.
EYFS Grandparents’ Tea: on Monday afternoon from 2:15pm, the children in Reception are looking forward to welcoming their grandparents into school for a special treat. They have been practising their singing and have even made them a tasty treat!
Culture and Diversity: on Thursday, we shall be leading a special assembly to celebrate the many languages that are spoken by the children in our school. We consider being bilingual a huge asset and are excited that some of our children will be able to share more about their home languages and cultures in our special assembly. This event will lead nicely into Spanish day on Friday. To remind you, the children are invited to wear something red or yellow (colours from the Spanish flag) on this day. We look forward to sharing with you some photos from our flamenco workshops, throughout the day. If you have not already made your £2 donation towards these workshops on parent pay, please can we remind you to do so. Thank you.
We Want Your Pom Poms: the PTA are also hoping to replace some of the Pom Poms at the front of the school. If you are able to make some, please place them in the box at the front of the main office. There is also wool available for those who may need it. It would be lovely to have some red and black pompoms to display for Remembrance Sunday. Many thanks!
Christmas Cards and Gifts: please see letter below from the PTA regarding Christmas artwork. Deadline: 31st October. Thank you.
October Half-Term Holiday: we break up for the half term on Friday 21st at normal time. After school on Friday, there was to be a spooky bake sale in the playground, however, the PTA welcome donations for this sale on Friday 4th November, combined with the 2nd hand Christmas jumper sale.
Year 6: lastly, a reminder for our Year 6 parents and carers: please could you check your Year 6 secondary applications on PAN London, the closing date is the 31st October. There are still some families who have not done this yet to confirm their spaces. Thank you.
Have a great rest of the weekend.

Christmas gifts using your child’s artwork
Your child will be coming home (or has come home) with information and a form for the Christmas cards / gifts. On the reverse of the form, if they have not already done so, there is space for them to draw their picture.
All forms/artwork should be returned to school by Monday 31st October 2022. Anything received after this date cannot be sent on for printing as it would have missed the deadline. The date on the form states earlier but this has been extended to allow enough time for a masterpiece to be created! All products ordered will be returned at the beginning of December. Attached to this news item are the pictures to help you.
We hope your child enjoys being creative.
