Each year we usually invite parents in to join us for a Christmas craft afternoon; unfortunately we cannot do it this year however we are pleased to say that all children will be making some crafts in school to bring home.
PTA Winter Wonderland
This will be taking place on Wednesday 16th December. This is also Christmas Dinner day in school so if children would like to wear something Christmassy on this day then they are welcome to. Thank you to all the parents who have already gone onto Parentpay to give consent and make a donation - the deadline is today so please go onto parentpay if you haven't done already. For more details see below.
We have been asked by some parents whether or not it is OK to bring in gifts for teachers. If you do wish to bring something in we just request that it is brought to the school office by Wednesday 16th December so they can be quarantined before being taken home.
Christmas Jumper Day
We would like to support the National 'Save the Children' Christmas Jumper day on Friday 11th. Children may wear a Christmas jumper or something else Christmassy if they wish. 50% of proceeds from the School Christmas DVD will go to the Save the Children charity.
If you would like to give a gift to school this Christmas we have set up an Amazon wishlist. As you will be aware funds in school are very tight...when teachers were asked what they wanted for Christmas the number 1 request was 'Pritt sticks!' If you would like to contribute then please order following the link below and items can be dropped off in the box outside the main gate each morning.
A huge thank you to Valleyside Garden Centre for kindly donating our beautiful Christmas tree.
We have put it in the front playground this year so everyone can enjoy it!
Notes from the Office
Milk for Spring Term
For Y1 and Y2 children, milk can now be ordered and paid for via Parentpay.
For children in Reception who are 5 before next term - please pay via ParentPay (you will have received an email if this applies to your child).
Children in Reception who are not yet 5 or who are in receipt of Pupil Premium will have received a paper letter in their book bags.
Please could we remind you that 'play dates', sleepovers and any other indoor socialising are not permitted as part of the tier 3 restrictions. Some parents have raised concerns that they are aware that this is happening within the school community. Please help us to keep everyone safe.
Dates for the Diary
Please see the attached calendar for this year.
Fancy a Clearout Before Christmas?
Why not take any unused toys that your child no longer wants or has outgrown to 'The Joybank' on Abbeydale road. The Joybank is a charitable organisation that aims to help all children have access to books and toys.
