Scholastic Book Fair

Thank you everyone for your amazing support of the Book Fair this week.  School has been able to use the commission to buy over £200 worth of books for our library!

World book day 3rd March

This year’s world book day falls on Thursday 3rd March.  There will fun activities to encourage children’s reading in school on that date.  The children will receive a World Book Day token on the day which can be redeemed at a book shop for a special book produced for the World Book Day event.  Alternatively the voucher can be used towards a book of your choice.  We would like to invite the children to bring to school one item that gives a clue to a book character from one of their favourite books,(e.g. a Harry Potter scarf or a bucket of Dinosaurs), and to bring the book with them to school.  Let’s get the children involved with ideas and being inventive, we are excited to see the results!

Parking

We remind you once again to please have the safety of our children and other pedestrians in mind when dropping off and collecting children from school.  Please do not stop on any yellow lines displayed outside school or surrounding roads, it causes a dangerous obstruction and also makes it difficult for our Crossing Patrol man, Mr Wilkinson, to see the oncoming traffic.  We also ask that you avoid parking on Walton Avenue, and do not park on the grass in front of the houses which is the responsibility of the householders

Medicine safety

Please could any medicines being sent into school be handed to the school office and never left in a child’s school bag. (This is the case even if a family member/friend is coming into school to administer them later in the day.) Please see our medicines in school policy on our web page for any further information.

                                                                      

Scholastic (half price) Book Fair in the school hall until Tuesday 2nd

We hope you will all try and make time at the end of school, (3.15pm until 4pm) until 2nd February to come and have a look at our book sale and support our school improvement work on reading.  The books are all half price and all are beautiful quality.  Any purchases you make mean the school can have new books as a commission. (If you feel you would like to buy a book – or indeed donate a good quality old book, for our library, we would be very grateful)

                                                                       

Match attack cards/personal property

We were very sad to have a parent report of the theft of some very expensive match attack cards from the school bag of one of our year 3 pupils this week. This saddens us immensely on two levels, 1. A child’s personal property has been stolen (in the term when we are focusing on the value of honesty) and 2. We are taking up a significant amount of learning time trying to resolve the missing cards. Please can we appeal to you to please pass onto school any cards that do not seem to belong to your child, and also not send any Y3 pupil into school with match attack cards or books for the foreseeable future. We have always taken the view that whilst the children were behaving responsibly and having fun with the cards, we were happy to have them in school. Sadly this now seems not to be the case. Whilst we constantly stress the importance of respecting other’s belongings, all personal property is brought into school at the child’s own risk.

The children and staff of Year 5 visited the Harris Museum last Thursday and took part in a Greek Myths workshop.  They all had a brilliant morning exploring the museum and using their imaginations to create mythical beasts.  Mrs Ball was proud to take such lovely well mannered children.  Thank you all for your donations, we are always very grateful, as it enables these educational visits to go ahead.
