Dear Parents and Carers

With only two weeks until we break up for Christmas, the school is filling quickly with the festive spirit.

It was lovely to see so many of you at the Christmas Tree service, a very special assembly for us at this time of year. The children have worked hard making their inventive and attractive decorations and it all looks lovely. A very big thank you to the Chandler family for donating the splendid tree once again.

Nativity Play

The dress rehearsal for the Nativity Play went very well today. Please note that all children are involved and everyone is needed for both the afternoon and evening performances on Wednesday 12th December. If for any reason your child is not able to make the evening performance, please let Mrs Pike know as we will have to rearrange the children in the hall. Please remember also to book your tickets for the performances

Lost Property

The jumper mountain has now reached Snowdonian proportions. We will put the lost property out on a fine day next week, but if you know your child has lost a specific item, we are more than happy for you to come in and claim it.

Next Friday 14th December is the PTFA Bazaar – 3:20pm – 5:00pm. Donations of raffle prizes are still being sought, as are bottles (of wine…) for the Water to Wine Stall. The Christmas Jumper Day was a great success; the children all looked very cheerful and the haul of jars is impressive.

With the dark evenings and plenty of other events going on, please note that there will be no more Netball, Tennis or Tag Rugby Club sessions after school this term. Clubs will resume in the New Year, but not the first week back.

Slips and letter returns

We are still short of some of the returns of important information required from you. Please make sure the data sheet and GDPR Privacy Notices are returned as soon as possible, and your slips and contributions for the Pantomime are in by Tuesday at the very latest. Due to the changes in the Data Protection Act, I will no longer be including children’s names in my newsletters, but you can see particular children’s successes acknowledged on the school website.

 

With best wishes

James Stanford
