Weekly Bulletin 19th January 2015

Week Beginning 19th January 2015


Thank you to all those parents who attended the departmental meetings last night.  Additional information will be e-mailed next week or you can locate current topic webs on Fronter.


On Tuesday 20th January our Year 4 children will be enjoying a special visit from the ‘Space Dome’, which will be landing again at The Hayes! They will be learning all about space through an interactive workshop as part of their current topic.  We hope the children will enjoy finding out more about our planet Earth and our solar system, through this all day science workshop.  Their day will be filled with fun and interactive scientific learning.  We thank parents immensely for your financial contributions that have enabled this workshop event to take place for the children.


On Wednesday 21st January our Year 2 children will attend their first CSMA rehearsal at Wolsey Infants.  As a result of this our Year 1 and 2 children will be swapping their swimming times for this day, therefore Year 2 will swim in the morning and Year 1 will swim in the afternoon.


On Thursday 22nd January if your child is taking part in the Junior CSMA festival they will be attending a rehearsal at Gilbert Scott Primary school during the afternoon.  They will need to collected from there at 3.30pm.  We currently have 10 more spaces available if your child is interested in joining.  These Festivals are an annual event, organised by the Croydon Schools’ Music Association, in which a group of our children join forces with other school choirs to form a choir of over 500 children that will perform at the Fairfield Halls.  This is a wonderful opportunity for children to be part of a large choir that develops their musical knowledge, as well as their confidence and self-esteem.


On Thursday 22nd January our football team are playing an away match against Harris Kenley; we wish them the best of luck. 


On Friday Class 8 will be leading our whole school assembly.  If you have a child in Miss Harman’s class and you wish to join us, please come to the school hall for 10.15am.


Caterham Cricket Club is looking for boys and girls in Years 3 to 6 to join their junior section. Indoor winter training will be on Sundays from 11th January 2015 starting at 12.15pm to 1.30pm at Caterham School Sports Centre.  They will be running sides from U9 to U11 in the 2015 cricket season plus a girls’ side.  For more details please email or use the contact us link on our website
