Week beginning 2nd December 2019
Thank you to all of the families who came to our school Christmas Fair on Saturday from 12-3pm. We had a wonderful day filled with smiles and laughter. We would like to express our enormous thanks to the PTA for all of the hard work that has gone into making this event such a success. We also want to thank all of our parents and carers who donated items for the fair, purchased raffle tickets and ‘find a fiver’ envelopes. Without you this event would not be possible. We look forward to reporting on how much we have raised really soon!
Our children in Reception are now really developing in confidence and independence. And as per our standard admission arrangements, after Christmas we will be asking parents and carers to help further develop their children’s independence by asking you to drop the children at the glass doors and refrain from entering the classroom in the mornings. Any urgent messages can be given to the members of staff on the door who will pass this on to the teachers. Thank you.
If you have chosen to participate in the ‘Phil the Bag’ initiative, please ensure that the bags of clothing etc. are brought into school by 9:00am on Thursday where they will be collected. Thank you.
On Thursday 5th December, the children in Years 5 and 6 will be visiting the Minster church to attend the CSMA orchestral music concert. We are proud that some of the children from the Year 6 drama club will be acting out a nativity tableaux as part of this event. The children watching the concert will travel by train to the Minster church and will return also by train. All children must ensure they bring a packed lunch with them to school as by the time they arrive back from the concert the school will have finished serving lunch. The children in the drama event must meet Mrs Olley at the Minster at 9am please.
You will have received an email about a reverse advent calendar. If you would like to participate in this initiative to do something kind for those less fortunate than ourselves we thank you in anticipation of your kindness.
On Friday at 3:30pm the boy’s football team have a match away at Hamsey Green. We wish them the best of luck.
