Week beginning 2nd July 2018
A great week in the sun was had by all last week.
On Monday, we were very lucky to have the NSPCC in to deliver workshops on how to keep safe online. Feedback from the parents and children has been valuable and we will definitely be inviting them back in the future. On Thursday, Rainforest class put on their assembly. It was great to see how much they have grown in confidence this year and to listen to what they had being learning. Well done also to Miss Slade’s ‘Mini Me’, although perhaps a little disconcerting to look at! Sport's Day on Friday was a resounding success, thank you to all those that came along to support the children and a huge thank you to CSSP, Miss Langan and all of our secondary helpers from Oasis Academy who made the day go smoothly.
Our Summer Fair on Saturday was a resounding success, packed full of families, fun and smiling faces. Thank you to the PTA for all their hard work and to all of the volunteers who gave up their time to run stalls. Photos of last week’s events can be seen on our Twitter site.

Message from the Office
If your child currently attends Wraparound Care Club, you'll shortly be receiving an email asked to confirm your intention to continue in September. Please reply asap as we would like to offer available places to those joining our school in September. Please ensure you clear any outstanding balances on your child's school dinner money account prior to the summer holidays. Thank you.
At the end of the school day, children (when going home with their parents) are climbing the tree at the bottom of the field. If your child is one of these climbers, can you please ask them not to, thank you. Please keep collecting the Woodcote Green Green Fingered Kids Scheme vouchers and hand in to the office.
As you may be aware our swimming teacher Ms DeCruz has been off sick for a couple of weeks. Next week we have arranged for a swimming teacher to come into school to cover school swimming. We hope Ms De Cruz will feel much better soon.
Scarlet Fever: a child has recently had Scarlet Fever although I am very pleased to say he is much better now. His symptoms were not ‘usual’ in that he did not have typical red, sandpaper rash. This child had a sore throat and a temperature, much like a cold or hayfever. Scarlet Fever also has these symptoms: headaches, swollen lymph nodes, and a characteristic rash. It most commonly affects children between five and 15 years of age. Please do look for these signs and if your child exhibits the symptoms, take her/him to the Drs as a precaution. If your child has scarlet fever, please keep them away from school for at least 24 hours after starting treatment with antibiotics.
Here’s to another fabulous week.
