Welcome back to Term 2. There are already lots of great activities booked in the run up to Christmas. Here are a few reminders about some of the events taking place in the first few weeks of term.
This week, we are hosting school photographs on Wednesday 4 November, so make sure everyone is looking super smart and wearing their best smiles! On Friday, our wonderful PTFA are hosting an Autumn Ball for the children. Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 can dance the afternoon away from 3:30pm – 4:15pm and Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 have their turn to boogie, from 4:30pm – 5:30pm. Due to setting up the hall in the afternoon, there will not be Funky Friday Assembly for the first week but extra celebrations the following Friday! There’s lots of disco fun and games planned, with both a DJ and a quiet room, for those that want to chat in a calmer environment. Don’t forget some pennies for snacks, drinks and sweets. We can’t wait to see you in your disco clothes!
Next week commences in memory of all those people who have served in war, as we host our own Remembrance Service in school. Children who attend clubs such as Rainbows, Brownies, Guides, Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Girls’ and Boys’ Brigade, are invited to wear their uniforms to school, if they wish, as a mark of respect. During the afternoon, I will be hosting my second Parents’ Forum – please pop in and let me tell you about our changes regarding behaviour and developing positive relationships in school. It is also National Anti-bullying Week and we will be focusing on one of our school rules: Be Kind. On the morning of Friday 22 November, you are invited to share our thoughts on this topic in our KS1 and KS2 assemblies. Details to follow. During the week, we are hosting our two Open Days for prospective parents where we have the opportunity to show off our great school. Please spread the word about our open events: Tuesday 12 November, in the morning, and Thursday 14 November, in the afternoon. We can’t wait to share what we have to offer the children in our community. The second week, finishes with ‘Children in Need‘ day on Friday 15 November. We will host a mufti day for a £1 donation to raise money for disadvantaged children.
And that’s just the first two weeks of term! I feel exhausted just writing about it. We are certainly going to be busy and have lots to look forward to.
