   Headteacher's Welcome 

Over the past couple of weeks children have been working hard on their entries for the Royal Mail special stamp competition. Children have been invited to design a stamp to show their 'Covid hero.' All children in school have completed a stamp design which will be sent off and entered into the national competition. Winners of the competition will see their stamps being used by the Royal Mail service - they will form a set of 8 stamps which will be released in Spring 2022.

 Have a look at their some of entries below. 

         

 PTA Update

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:

nethergreeninfantschoolpta@gmail.com

 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 could you have any requests emailed to us by Friday 28th May.

Teddy Bear's Treat!

Next Friday the PTA are organising an exciting Teddy Bear Treasure Hunt in the Woodland to give the children a little treat for all their hard work this term. There is a suggested donation of £3 - please follow this link...

Teddy Bear's Picnic Donation

The monies raised will go towards new equipment and resources for the school.

 

 If you don't wish your child to have a cake treat, please email the school office. (We are aware of the children with medical diets and will accommodate these). 

   Term Time Leave

We have started to receive requests for time off school for family holidays. Whilst we appreciate that the last year has been incredibly challenging for everyone and we understand how important quality family time is, we are not able to authorise any term time leave because of the amount of time missed due Lockdowns over the past year. If you choose to take your child out of school during term time this will be unauthorised

Play Dates

If your child is going home with another child's parents, please email your child's class teacher to inform them of this.  Please do this in advance as teachers don't always have chance to check their emails throughout the school day. 

 Girls' football
Nether Green Football Club are looking for girls who want to play football. Any girls who are in Y1 or Y2 can come down and see if they like it. Your child does not need to have played football before. The sessions focus on fun and games, exercising, keeping healthy and building friendships. We are starting these sessions on Sundays at 10am at Goodwin football pitches in Broomhill. They start from Sunday 6th June and it is free for four weeks to see if your daughter likes it. All coaches have full DBS checks. If you are interested or have any further questions, please contact Matthew on matthewcknox@hotmail.co.uk.

School Skipping Challenge!

Next week we will be having a school skipping challenge! All children in all classes will be working on their skipping skills in their PE lessons. Teachers will be watching very carefully and at the end of the week there will be awards in each class for:-

-most improved

-overall class champion 

If children have their own skipping rope and they would like to bring this to school to practise with at playtime then they may. If your child does choose to bring a rope, please tell them it is for their own personal use and should not be shared. 

 Covid Update

We are aware that a number of siblings of some of our pupils are currently isolating due to bubbles closing at the Junior School.  We have had reports of some of these children accompanying parents to collect their siblings from our school. Please could we remind you that the Public Health guidance states that children who are isolating should not be leaving the house. Bringing them to a busy school creates potential risk for the children and staff of our school community.  We understand this poses difficulty for families but request that you make alternative arrangements for everyone's safety. 

Please  ensure you have read the letter from Greg Fell about the use of lateral flow tests.

Classes for September - All Year Groups

Teachers will be starting to group children for their new classes for September after the half term break. We will not be asking parents to identify specific friends for their child to be placed with next year. However, we do ask that if there is anything significant that you would like us to take into consideration, you email your child's class teacher by the end of this half term (Friday 28th May).

After School Club - Den Building

There is still time to book Den Building for the following bubbles this term:-
