Message from Mrs. Castell
I was so proud of the Year 1 and 2 children on Wednesday at our Harvest Festival. The singing and narration was fantastic! Thank you to parents who supported us and also those that attended the EYFS Picnic and Play sessions this week.
Family Learning Time will take place first thing on Wednesday 12th October. For those new to our school, this is a chance for parents to come in and take part in a lesson in school. If you are planning to attend, please let us know via the ParentMail form so that we know how many to accommodate in the classroom and what is practical to teach.
Reading Mondays will continue weekly until the half term break, after which we will hold them on the first Monday of the month. This is following feedback that it can be unsettling for children who have no adult to join them. We hope that by having fewer sessions there will be less pressure on everyone's very busy lives. We continue to welcome your comments, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Parents' Evenings will be held on Wednesday 19th October and Thursday 20th October. Appointments can be booked via ParentMail. Year 1 parents are invited to look at their children's school books on Wednesday 19th October at 8.30am in the school hall. Year 2 parents are invited to do the same on Thursday 20th October at 8.30am.
Wanted: old Halloween costumes and school uniform!
If your children have grown out of last year's Halloween costumes, please consider donating them to our WISPA sale on Friday 21st October, where you will hopefully be able to purchase a new one for the bargain price of £2! We will also be selling pre-loved uniform on this day, so if you have any spare items you would like to donate, please hand them to the school office. Many thanks for your support.
Eco Top Tip
We are working towards our Eco award and the children would like to share a tip with us every week. This week they recommend not letting taps run while your cleaning your teeth!
Attendance this week was 93.4% compared to our school target of 96%.
Finally, thank you to those of you who donated to my son's fundraising page for Make A Wish. I was a very proud mum as a first time marathoner he completed the course in 3 hours 44 minutes.
Have a wonderful weekend.
