Autumn Term 2019/20 Week Beginning 21st  October 2019


EYFS Launch Event


To launch our topic of 'Traditional Tales/Stories' in Autumn 2 we have organised a storyteller to come into school. The children love stories and we want to ignite their passion even further through this fun and interactive session. We would also love you to be part of it and to share this special time with your child.


This event is taking place in the school hall on Tuesday 5th November at the following times:

Reception DL (Mrs Lewis) 9am-10am

Nursery AM 10.15am-11am 

Reception AR (Miss Ridley) 1.15pm - 2.15pm 

Nursery PM plus childcare 2.25-3.10pm 


Due to space, only parents/carers can attend this event, please arrange alternative childcare for younger siblings/other children.


Anti Bullying Day

On the 12th November, we are supporting Anti Bullying Day, we are asking children to wear odd socks for the day to raise awareness.

Children In Need

This is on the 15th November. This will be a £1 donation and children can wear non uniform for the day.


Every week children compete for as many DoJos as they can get for good behaviour, attitude and work. They then trade them in our shop at the end of each term. On a weekly basis they compete in their family groups to see who has the most.

This week the winner was Mandela.


Packed lunches

Please can you ensure children do not bring sweets, chocolate or fizzy pop into school. Several children are substituting sandwiches and fruit for these items. We are trying to teach children about healthy, balanced diets.


School Uniform

Please can I remind you that school uniform is skirts or trousers. Several girls are wearing leggings and these are not an option.

Shoes need to be plain black and several are wearing trainers with logos.



This week our attendance is 96%, we are delighted! Keep up the excellent work! Mrs Dimmick’s class (again!) won the attendance class award this week.


Parent Pay

You should have received a letter asking you to sign up to Parent Pay this week. Basically, it is an app that allows you to pay for dinners, nursery fees, trips and after school clubs without the need of having to send cash into school. If you have any issues with this please can you ring the office as only office staff have access to this.


Please note our children break up for half term today and return on Tuesday 5th November.


Have a lovely half term break.
