Dear Parents and Carers,

 

HOT WEATHER

Please ensure your child has a water bottle and sun hat in school every day.

 

SPORTS EVENTS NEXT WEEK

Next week we have our sport events. These all start at 2.00pm and finish at 3.00pm. Parents and carers are warmly welcome to attend.

 

Tuesday June 18th          2.00–3.00pm Year 1

Wednesday June 19th     2.00–3.00pm Year R

Thursday June 20th          2.00–3.00pm Year 2

 

The pedestrian gate will be open 10 minutes before the start time. Please do not arrive earlier. Please do not come to the main entrance. There will be an area for parents and carers to stand. Please keep to these areas. The children will have their water bottles with them.

 

A FOND FAREWELL AND GOOD LUCK!

Last Friday was Mrs Ainsworth’s (Year 2 Fox Class) last day at SIS for a while as she left to begin her maternity leave. We wish her every joy and look forward to meeting new baby Ainsworth. We will miss her and thank her for all she has done for children in Y2.

 

WOODLAND AREAS

Over half term we had new paths and chippings put down in the woods. This is part of our project to further develop our wonderful grounds. Please ensure children do not access these woodland areas before or after school. They are only to be accessed during the school day with members of staff. Thank-you.

 

SHAKESPEARE INFANT SCHOOL PARENT TEACHER ASSOCIATION

For many years our wonderful SHINE committee have, with your support, raised lots of money to support our school. Two key members of this committee, Mrs Julie Wartnaby and Mrs Liz Houghton have decided to step down from SHINE at the end of this academic year. They have done an amazing job over the years much of which is in their own time.

We are truly indebted to them both.

 

With this in mind we would like to start a Shakespeare infant School PTA. As you know budgets have been hit hard in recent years and this has taken its toll. We have fewer staff hours and limited resources.

 We need to raise more money not just for luxuries as detailed in the attached letter but for basics.

Please read the attached letter and we would really appreciate your support. If interested please return the reply slip or contact the school office.
