Week Beginning 22nd January 2024
Thank you to all those who attended our parent workshop on Thursday this week and for your positive feedback on our new approach to teaching spellings. We will soon be running a calculation workshop for parents to support your understanding of the methods we use to teach children maths. We are also about to work with 3Discovery to lead workshops on internet safety for the children. We are considering a parent workshop on the same topic but would like to gauge if there is interest in this before we confirm with the providers. We are aware that many of the children have been given new devices over the holiday period. If you would be interested in attending a parent workshop about keeping your children safe on line, please could you indicate your interest on the following google form. If there is enough interest, we will arrange this for you. https://forms.gle/2apPU7K4bic5Qirr7
If your child is unwell or going to be absent from school for any reason, please can we remind you that the correct email address to use to report this is firstname.lastname@example.org. Requests for leave of absence for routine appointments such as dentist check ups should be made during the school holiday. These will not be authorised.
Monday the 22nd January is World RE day and our RE co-ordinator, Mrs Derodra, will be leading assembly on Monday morning to celebrate the religious diversity within our school. One of our core values at The Hayes is tolerance and the more we learn about each other the better our understanding becomes.
On Wednesday, Class 9 will be leading assembly at 9:10 in the school hall. If you have a child in this class and wish to join us, we would love to see you there.
The school council will be meeting on Thursday this week, with the manager of Aspens, to share their feedback on school meals and ask any questions they may have. If your child would like an issue raised, please encourage them to speak to their class reps about it. They are the service users of our catering contract and it is important that their voice is heard.
Also on Thursday after school, there is a netball match scheduled at home against Smitham. We wish the children competing the best of luck.
On Friday, the children in Reception will be having a dental check with NHS staff. If any worries or concerns are identified, you will be notified directly.
Also, on Friday morning we wish good luck to those taking part in the Croydon School’s Swimming Gala. I would like to thank Miss Browne and Mrs Aamir for helping the children prepare for this event and parents for transporting your children to and from the event. We know the children will ‘Be the best they can be’ and will hopefully bring back some silverware for our trophy cabinet!
Have a great weekend.
