Storms, Gingerbread men and Chocolate for breakfast!
This week’s class updates are full of all the wonderful things that the children have been learning this week. In Reception the children did some amazing work and sampled their own Gingerbread men! Year 6 have had some lively debate on whether eating chocolate for breakfast should be allowed too! We have also been well and truly battered by winter storms. Thank you to all our families who despite trees and other obstacles managed to get children into school safely. Every day really does count! Please check out this week’s news in the class pages.
Please ensure children are sent in with a warm winter coat every day
Ideally warm and waterproof. This time of the year it is very very cold and often wet. Please help us to keep your child warm and well by making sure they bring in a warm coat to wear outside as we do go out at every opportunity.
School Uniform – Our next order will be placed on Friday 16th February. Please log in to school money to place your order before this date
PE Uniform (Gymnastics) – Neverland, Narnia, Wonderland, Hogwarts and Rivendell Class – Please continue to send your children in wearing their Joggers on their PE day but also with their PE shorts in a named bag for them to change into or wearing them under their jogging trousers.
Buddy Bench – School council would like to introduce a buddy bench for children at break and lunch times to play at. Children who may feel unsettled or who would like someone to play with can come to the bench and another child will then play them. The PTFA have kindly donated some money towards this for games, outdoor cushions and colouring equipment that will always be available on the bench. The children have been asked to design a logo for the Buddy Bench by Friday 2nd February and then the school council will decide on the best logo which will be used! We will share the results with you once the logo has been chosen.
