Week commencing 3rd October
As we enter October we remind all parents that it is 'Walk to School Month' and we therefore encourage as many parents as possible to make the effort to walk to school or park a little further away than normal and walk the last stretch! This has many health benefits and also helps to eliminate the congestion problems that we experience at the start and end of the day.
On Monday morning we kick start our week with our Grandparents breakfast in celebration of Grandparents' Day which takes place on Sunday 2nd October. Grandparents play a fundamental part in the lives of so many of our children and to recognise that we would like to invite them into school to have some breakfast with their grandchildren. Due to limited space I am afraid this event is open to Grandparents and Grandchildren only. Parents are not also able to attend as we simply do not have the space to accommodate this. To ease congestion in the dining hall we ask that any children wishing to attend with their Grandparents do so at the following times:
8:00 Year 5 and 6
8:30 Year 1 and 2
8:45 Year 3 and 4
9:15 Grandparents depart and all children return to classrooms
There will be a selection of teas, coffees, pastries and cakes available.
As a result of this event, Monday's Tae Kwon Do will be held in the music room/ ICT suite and Lexia will be held in class 1.
On Tuesday Balance Bike Training begins for some of our children in Reception. On Tuesday evening we are also hosting a parent workshop for new Reception starters called 'How we Learn in Reception'. This will take place in the reception classes at 3:30pm. We look forward to seeing you there.
On Thursday, Year 3 will be visiting Kidzania. We are sure they will have plenty of fun learning to be responsible, money-wise citizens!
Thursday is also National Poetry Day. If any children would like to bring in their favourite poem to share with their class they are welcome to do so.
There will be no dance club on Thursday after school.
Drama club begins on Friday after school for any Year 6s who have returned their slips. Collection time is 4pm.
Have a wonderful weekend!
