Week Beginning 6th October 2014
Today our newly elected school council members have met for the first time. We congratulate all those who have been elected to represent their class and give a special congratulations to our new Chair Georgia Goddard, Secretary Melissa Prouten and Treasurer Arya Labroo. Well done!
Coming up next week…
On Monday evening we are hosting our ‘How we learn in Reception’ meeting for all parents of children currently in Rainforest or Safari classes. This will take place at 6.30pm in the hall and afterwards you will have the opportunity to visit the Reception classrooms and see how they are set up for learning. This is a fantastic opportunity to find out more about the Early Years curriculum, how the children access learning in the foundation stage and the type of activities they may be engaging in. You will get a clearer understanding of how the children learn at school, what to expect over the course of the next year and ways in which you can support your child at home.
On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday the PTA are running the travelling book fair ‘READiscover’ that is coming to school. They will be set up in the ICT suite from 2.45pm. Please do go along to support this event after collecting your children at the end of the day, as this has an impact on books that we can gain for school.
On Wednesday 8th October our Year 5/6 children will be taking part in the Croydon Cross Country finals at Lloyd park. We wish them all the best of luck.
On Thursday 9th October our Junior Choir will start. This is a lunchtime club for the children in Year3-6, and will provide them with the opportunity to support the Christmas production in school and to perform locally at residential homes in the area.
On Thursday 9th October the PTA are holding their Junior discos. The Year 3&4 disco is between 5.00-6.00pm, and Year 5&6 between 6.15-7.45pm. Your last opportunity to purchase tickets for this event, priced at £3.50 each, will be on Wednesday 8th October. If you are willing to volunteer to help on the night please add your name to the volunteers register at www.pta-events.co.uk/thehayes .
Please don’t forget that the school is CLOSED on Friday 10th October. The school will only be open to staff as it is an INSET day.
If you have a child who is due to start school in Reception in September 2014, we are now taking bookings for appointments for visits to the school. Please telephone the school office if you would like an appointment to have a tour of the school and to be welcomed to The Hayes by Mrs Larkham the Headteacher.
We do hope that you have a wonderful weekend.
