 Headteacher's Welcome

  It has been lovely this half term to reinstate the favourite tradition of 'Tea at 3'. Children who are chosen as Star of the Week in 'Fantastic Friday' assembly are invited to come to 'Tea at 3' with Mrs Hawkins. It is a lovely treat for the children, they get to chat to Mrs Hawkins and the rest of the stars, share their news and have some sweet treats too. Due to Covid restrictions on mixing bubbles and also sharing food we were unable to have Tea at 3 last year, however we have adapted it slightly, taking it outside as well as putting other measures in place which means that our Stars of the Week are rewarded with this special treat.

Rudolph Christmas Cards! Last weekend to complete The Rudolph Christmas cards

Deadline is Thursday 21st October!

We realise it’s early to be thinking about Christmas, but if you’re looking for a way to support the school and make a start on your Christmas shopping, this is the perfect opportunity! 

Your child will have brought home a template on which they can design a special picture ready for Christmas. This can then be printed on to Christmas cards, mugs and a whole range of other products. Please see the parent letter for more information and examples. 

If you are interested, here’s what you need to do:

  1. Child completes their design on the drawing template (you can print off a copy of your own). Please note, stick to felt-tip or water-based paint.  No sparkly glitter please!
  2. Complete the order form next to your child’s drawing.
  3. Make your payment on ParentPay. The payment item is called 'PTA Rudolf Cards'
  4. Return your drawing to school. Deadline is Thursday 21st October

Purchases should arrive in plenty of time for Christmas. They will be distributed at school for children to take home. Please click here for the design form.
