School Newsletter – Friday 23rd February 2018

Dear Parents,

Thank you to everyone who has returned their parents’ evening slips, times will be sent home on Monday.

Please make sure you telephone the school to inform the office staff if your child is absent from school and the reason why.  If we have not heard from you, our aim is to try every contact number we have until we can find out why your child is not in school.  This is part of our safeguarding and welfare of all pupils in ensuring we know their whereabouts.  Please make sure all emergency contact numbers you provide school with are current and valid.

A parents’ evening information session will be held for the children in Year 3 and 4about the trip to Kingswood in May at 3.20 pm on Tuesday 20th March.

Kingswood trip letters have gone out for the children in Years 5 and 6 for a weekend residential trip in June.  Places are limited so please return deposits as soon as possible.

We are asking for donations of Easter Eggs to our Easter Egg Bingo which will be held on Wednesday 28th March.

Curriculum plans have been sent home tonight detailing the work the children will be completing during our “Tell me a story” Project.  The curriculum plans for current and previous projects are available on our school website.

Congratulations to Mrs Taylor and our other kitchen staff on our 5 star hygiene rating which we received this week following a surprise inspection.

Thank you

Mr. R. Walthall

School Newsletter – Friday 11th February 2018

Dear Parents,

The children have led assemblies around Children’s Mental Health Week and Internet Safety this week.

Thank you to everyone who brought in their homework projects this week, we enjoyed looking at them and will be posting some photographs and videos on the school Facebook page over the half term break.

Accelerated Reading is becoming more established in school and all children should be approximately half way to their target (50%).  Some parents may have noticed the target has increased as their child is reading more and the target is more in line with national expectations.

The governing board’s resources sub-committee met last night and the curriculum subcommittee will meet on Thursday, 22nd February at 5pm.

Deposits and permission slips for the Year 3/4 residential trip to Kingswood are due by Friday, 23rd February.

This afternoon the children in Neptune completed arts and craft activities as part of a Team Stars reward afternoon for being part of the team with the most points.

Today children have taken home a letter detailing the homework project for next half term and the chance to win a prize.

School closes for half term on Friday, 9th February and reopens on Monday, 19th February.

Thank you

Mr. R. Walthall
