Newsletter. Week beginning Tuesday September 5th 2017.

 

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

Welcome back! I hope you had a relaxing break with family and friends. A warm welcome to our new children and families. I must say how smart the children look in their school uniform and school shoes.

 

NEW CLASSROOMS.

The modular classrooms and new pathway were all finished at the eleventh hour! We are aware that the path to the modular is not sufficiently wide for parents and children at the start and end of the day. This will be addressed but bear with us in the short term! Please ensure you keep to the paths and ensure that children do not go onto the muddy areas.

 

OTHER BUILDING NEWS.

Our first aid room has had a make-over and is looking super! We have also had the all- weather area extended to provide more play and PE area. Our new Year R class has a lovely fenced off outdoor area.

 

STAFF UPDATE.

A very warm welcome to Ms Vicky Vargas- special needs assistant who joins the school this term in year 2.

 

WELCOME TO YEAR 1 AND 2 MEETINGS.

As detailed in your class letters last term we are repeating the meetings regarding what you need to know about Years 1 and 2. Well behaved younger siblings are welcome.

 

WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 13th 2.15pm YEAR 2 MEETING IN THE MUSIC AND DRAMA ROOM.

THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 14th 2.15pm YEAR 1 MEETING IN THE MUSIC AND DRAMA ROOM.

 

AFTER SCHOOL CLUBS.

After school clubs will start week beginning September 25th. These clubs are for Year 2 children but if we have any spaces we can offer them to Year 1 children. Parents and carers of Year 2 children will receive a letter this week. Please return as soon as possible so that we can allocate places.
