This week in assembly we have started to think about this term's school value of Respect. We talked about lots of different ways that the children can show respect to others in school for example:-
Our School is a Mobile Free Zone!
There are many ways that you can support our school PTA to raise vital funds for school.
This year we will be unable to hold many of the events that usually bring money into school, however there are lots of ways you can still support us. The school lottery is a great, hassle free way to help out. Details of how to sign up are on the newsletter along with other easy ways to support us.
Second Hand Uniform Sale!
Usually at this time of year the NGIS PTA organise a second hand uniform sale on the school premises. Unfortunately due to COVID19 restrictions this is not possible this year. However we appreciate this is often a helpful moment to pick up that extra jumper you didn’t realise you would need!
If you would like to purchase second-hand uniform this is still possible. We are asking parents/carers to email a 'wish list' to the PTA email address:
Please include the following in your email:
1) Name of items, include size and colour preference (if you have one)
2) Class Name
3) Name of Child
PTA volunteers will have access to the uniform store (polo shirts, jumpers, cardigans, dresses and trousers). They will try their best to collate a parcel of requested items. The parcel will be quarantined for 72 hours and then passed to the relevant class teacher. The class teacher will hand you the parcel at drop off or pick up. We ask for a small donation which will go towards enabling the school to buy extra books, resources and apparatus. Please leave a donation in an envelope.
Please send requests via email by Friday 9th October.
Thank you to everyone for following the guidance as requested to help keep everyone in our community safe.
Please read the attached important letter that has been sent form the DFE about testing
If you would like your child to receive the nasal flu vaccine in school please follow this link to complete an online consent form:
The vaccinations will take place at school on Thursday 22nd October 2020.
The link to give consent will close on Saturday 17th October 2020.
If your child has already had the Nasal Flu vaccine since Sept 2020 please disregard this message.
If you have any problems accessing the link please telephone IntraHealth on 0333 358 3397 (option 7).
Dates for the Diary
Please see attached the calendar for this year.
Unfortunately due to Covid restrictions we are not able to invite parents to any events in school at the moment; we anticipate this will be the case for the foreseeable future.
Where possible, we will still aim to share key information with you in different ways.
Key Dates this term:-
Notes from the Teachers
Year 1 and Year 2 Reading
Most children in Year 1 and 2 will have brought their reading book home this week.
Please see attached a letter containing detailed information about how you can support your child with reading at home.
Our 'Reading Champions' stamps will start too; a stamp will be awarded each week when your child reads 3 times or more at home.
Phonics Homework - Well done to all those children in Year 1 and Year 2 who remembered to bring back their phonics homework on Thursday - this helps give teachers time to get the next homework ready to go home on Friday.
