 Headteacher's Welcome

There has been great excitement in school as we have moved into December this week! The children are clearly aware that Christmas is just around the corner! Next week they will be busy making Christmas crafts and practising singing their Christmas songs ready to record their class videos. The hall is looking very festive thanks to our creative After School Club who have made some super decorations. 

Here is some key information that you need to know in the lead up to Christmas:-

Whole School Christmas Video - Each class will be learning a Christmas song. This will be performed and recorded next week. Parents are able to buy a memento copy of this (this will be on USB this year) - all profits will be split between the PTA and the Sheffield Children's Hospital. These will be recorded next Friday 10th as children will be wearing Christmas jumpers on this day (weather permitting!) You can order now via ParentPay. If you have been sent an email re: video permission please reply promptly. 

Fri 10th Dec - Christmas Jumper Day and Santa Dash - Next Friday is National Christmas Jumper Day. Children are invited to wear a Christmas jumper and make a donation to Save the Children

Sheffield schools have all been invited to take part in a Christmas Santa Dash - Each class will be having a slot to 'dash' around the running track and the class with the most laps will be the winners. Children are invited to bring a Santa hat / deeley boppers or other festive head wear.

Notes From the Office
Milk: If your child would like milk next term please complete the order by Fri 10th Dec - please note it is very time consuming to change the order when late orders come in so please stick to this deadline. Thank you. 
 
Next week is WEEK 3 of the lunch menu  - please remember it is Veggie Monday! (no ham grab bag!)
The menu can be viewed here:  Autumn Menu 

Christmas Cards

If your child would like to send Christmas cards to their friends then they may bring them int o school to be posted into the Postbox - cards will then be sorted and given out. 

Please make sure your child puts the first name, surname and class on each envelope otherwise it gets very confusing! Thanks

 Covid Update 

Following the restrictions put in place by the government earlier this week, staff are now expected to wear face masks in school in communal areas (not in classrooms). Visitors are limited and anyone coming into school must wear a face covering at all times. 

Please continue to be vigilant and do not send your child to school if they have any Covid symptoms.
