A reminder that tomorrow, 14th February, is an INSET day. The children will return to school after half-term, on Monday 24th February.
Parents Evenings will take place on Tuesday 25th March and Wednesday 26th March . Please enter the school via the main Burnham Avenue gate.
There will be no school-run after school clubs during that week. However clubs run by external organisations will go ahead as normal, including Minecraft.
Please find attached a New Curriculum Update for Parents.
Our two Open Afternoons this week have been very well attended – thank you to all parents who were able to come along.
ST DAVID’S DAY
To celebrate St David’s Day this year, we will be holding a school Eisteddfod on Friday 28th February.
You will have received an email via ParentPay last Friday with details of home learning competitions that will form part of our celebrations. All pupils in KS2 need to enter at least one of the competitions as this will be their half-term homework.
Our combined attendance this week was 95.3%, still below our target of 96.3%.
Our two winning classes this week are the same as last week! Mr Jarvis’s Y1/2 class are victorious in the Foundation Phase on 96.9% while Miss Price’s Y4 class has perfect 100% attendance for the second week! Congratulations to both classes – they will get a sticker on the graph and extra play next week!
REMEMBER—A DAY MISSED CAN IMPACT ON YOUR CHILD’S PROGRESS IN SCHOOL
Bags will be coming home this evening. Please read the information sheet (you can’t miss it!).
MOTHERS DAY SALE!!!! – 20th March 2020
This is one of the PTA’s favourite events of the year!!! We would be really grateful if you could please donate any unwanted Christmas pressies or old jewellery (no pierced earrings) that we could include in the sale. We need these items ASAP in order that we can assess and see how much we need to buy. Please pass to a PTA rep so we can store them and know how much we have.
We also need volunteers to help wrap and sell gifts. This is a magical event to help at as the children’s faces and pondering is just lovely.
Tickets on sale now!! Rumour has it there will be a teachers team?! – Are you cleverer than our teachers?! Promises to be a fun night. Please support.
We are still in need of a treasurer! The Treasurer can be a background role and you would not need to help at actual events. If anyone knows of anyone who would be willing to help us please get in touch.
