Today a letter has been sent out regarding our music lessons. We are unable to play the clarinets due to restrictions so we have therefore changed instruments to the violin. Once the letters have been returned your child will be allocated a violin that they can use each week in school.
Last day 17.12.2020
The school will be closing at 2pm. This is usually the time we do PE, therefore the children will not need to come in their PE kit and should wear their school uniform for the last day.
Christmas Party afternoon
Tomorrow, 16th December, the children will be having a party afternoon and they can come into school in their party clothes ready for the afternoon. We will be having a little fruit drink and snack and some fun party games.
For the last day of term, the children have been rewarded for their hard work and being so good with all the changes this term has had with a film day. The children have voted for their favourite film to watch and they have chosen "ELF". As this is a PG rated film we will need your permission for them to watch. If you do not wish your child to watch the film could you please contact the school by Wednesday 16th so we can choose an alternative film. If you are happy for them to watch it them you do not need to do anything as I will take the non contact as permission.
St Andrew's Day
Monday is St Andrew's day and as he is the Patron Saint of the blue team, they are able to come into school wearing their own blue clothes on Monday.
Nuts in school
A polite reminder that children are not allowed to bring in any food containing nuts, either in their snack or lunch box. We do have a child in school with a severe nut allergy. Thank you for your support in this important matter.
Odd Sock Day
Remember to morrow is the start of our Anti Bullying week. We will be wearing odd socks to show we are all individual.
Monday - odd socks
Tuesday - crazy hair
Wednesday = fun tie
Can't wait to see you all.
Friday Afternoon PE lesson
This Friday afternoon, we are having our PE lesson. The children are able to come in to school in their own clothes without bringing in the usual fine. If your child is wearing sport attire for their choice and you are happy for them to wear this for the PE lesson then they do not need to bring in a PE kit. If you feel your child will need to change out of their own clothes then please bring in a PE kit for the afternoon session. Please make sure the children are still wearing sensible shoes for the outdoor provision.

Unfortunately, due to the DFE guidelines we are unable to continue with the fit and fun club on a Tuesday afternoon. We will notify you of any changes to the guidance as soon as we hear.

Multi Skills Club
Although we are not having PE on Thursday, the multi skills club will still take place on Thursday after school. If your child is part of the club, they will need to bring in their PE kit to take part. Please send it in a small bag as they will be keeping it by their table. If your child is wearing a football kit or sport attire for their fun afternoon and you feel this is appropriate for the club, then they can wear this and will not need to change into their PE kit.
Thursday Treat Afternoon
This Thursday afternoon, we are having a special treat afternoon. The children are able to come into school in dress up. We will not be having our usual PE lesson but will use the time outside to do some fun activities of the children's choice. They will therefore not need to bring in their PE kit for this day. Please make sure the children are still wearing sensible shoes for the outdoor provision.
Next term, starting 2nd November, PE will be on a Friday. Children should come into school in their PE kit for this day.
After school clubs will take place after school on a Tuesday. Children who are taking part in the club will need to bring their kit in a small bag that they will leave by their desk.
