   Headteacher's Welcome 

It's been another fantastic week of learning in school! I have been particularly impressed talking to the children in Year 1 and 2 who have been learning about Superheroes this term. Their topic since Christmas has included learning about 'Real Life Superheroes' and also 'Superheroes in the past' (such as Florence Nightingale and Neil Armstrong). This week they have been thinking about how they themselves can be Superheros to help to save our planet. The children have talked passionately about ways that they can help to look after our planet. These are some of the things that the children have talked about doing to make life better for people and animals living in our world:-

Be a Superhero and Save our Planet!

  • Don't waste things- put lids back on pens and glue sticks
  • Don't throw away your clothes - give them to someone else if they're too small
  • Put your rubbish in the right bin and recycle it if you can
  • If you don't want something you could try to make it into something else
  • Save Water - turn off taps when you are not using them
  • Save Electricity - turn lights off when you leave a room

PTA Update                                     

 

 

 

Every year the PTA hold a sponsored read over the holidays to raise money for the school. This

year the PTA are aiming to raise enough money to assist the school in buying new iPads.

 This year the sponsored read will be held over the Easter holidays. We know this has been a very tricky and busy time for everyone and we want to stress participation is completely optional. If your little one is a keen reader or if your child would benefit from a little extra motivation to read then the sponsored read is a great option! 

All you have to do is record the number of minutes they read a day (even if it’s only a couple) for one week of the holidays, and collect some sponsorship money. Everyone who participates will get a certificate and there will be a fantastic prize of a book token for the winner in each class!

The sponsor sheets will be distributed via book bags towards the end of next week. The forms will detail an online payment option as we are trying to minimise the handling of cash at this time.

 Happy reading everyone!!  

The PTA would like to wish you all a very happy and restful Easter holidays. 


The PTA are planning a used uniform sale later this spring.

If you have any uniform which your child has outgrown or no longer needs, please bring it to the school office.

Home Time Collection

Please do not hang around in the playground once you have collected your child. We have noticed that some families are staying around and chatting and allowing their children to play on the play equipment. Please could we ask that unless you are waiting for a sibling in another class you leave the playground as soon as your child has been collected.  This is to ensure the playground does not become busy and that children are not mixing with others from other classes

Extra Curricular Clubs 

We have taken the decision as a school that we will not be hosting any external organisations to provide Extra Curricular clubs for the remainder of this academic year. We are planning to continue to work in class bubbles after Easter as we feel this is the most effective way to minimise the risk of Covid transmission in school with young children and reduce the number of children needing to isolate in the event of a positive Covid case. Whilst we know that children gain so much enjoyment from attending extra clubs, we feel that for now the priority needs to be keeping children in school for as long possible. It would not be possible to run clubs in class bubbles as this would not sustainable for the clubs. It also impacts on the space we have available for the use of our own After School Club, which is essential for childcare purposes. 

We are hopeful that by September we will be able to operate in a much more 'normal' way.

Fulwood Lawn Tennis Club
Whilst we would love to come back and coach tennis at Nether Green Infants, we have decided, along with the school, that it would be best to host the club at the Tennis Club as we have lots of outdoor space until we all feel it's the right time to come back.
Please book your child's place here  and if you have any further questions, please contact Jonathan on 07802 158315

After School Club - Den Building

We are very fortunate that we have a new member of staff working in our ASC - Mr Darby. Mr Darby has been volunteering since September in Kangaroos as part of his NVQ Teaching Assistant qualification, but also has a lot of experience of sports coaching and has a passion for the outdoors. He has kindly offered to lead some Woodland sessions in ASC after Easter, and will take a bubble into the Woodland Area for their ASC session on Mondays to carry out Den Building activities

If your child doesn't normally attend but would like to join this fun activity on a Monday, please book them into the club via ParentPay. Please see below the dates that each bubble will be in the Woodland Area. Please send your child with suitable footwear and clothing.
