Spring Term 2018/19 Week Beginning 18 th March

Dear Parents and Carers, 

Nursery Trip

We are going on a visit to St. Peter’s Church, in Sunderland, on Tuesday 2nd April. This is to enhance our Religious Education topic of ‘Introduction to a church’ and ‘Easter’. This trip will take place during the morning session (we are leaving at 9am and returning for 11.40am) and will involve a range of activities including:  Learning about the Easter story/learning the signs and symbols on the kneelers in the church/ taking place on a walk and tour inside and outside of the church to explore the main features of a church and the purpose of them. The cost of the trip is £3.50. This includes transport, the activities and a donation to the church. Please pay the money into school by Friday 22nd March 2019.

As the children are young, our adult to child ratio is high. This is to ensure the safe wellbeing of all children. Therefore we would appreciate some parent/carer volunteers to assist staff in supporting groups of children to access the activities. If you are interested please inform a member of the Nursery team.

Parents Evening

Parents Evening will take place the first week back after the Easter holidays (23rd and 24th April). Please look out for the letter to sign up to an appointment. Some parents will be requested to meet Wednesday 27th March and will receive a separate letter.

Wise Games

Save the Date! On May 20th Children from Y3-Y6 will be taking a sporting event with some of our other WISE schools. Parents, carers and family members are welcome to attend between 9am and 3pm and watch the fun.
