The cold weather has once again returned and the long winter evenings are still with us. Yet that said sunset in six weeks time sunset will be nearing 6pm! It is incredibly important that your child comes to school in the correct school uniform during the cold winter months. Please ensure that their coats, hats and gloves are labelled and encourage them to put their gloves and hats in the sleeves of their jackets so that they wont get lost. Our class assemblies commence once again this term and you are all cordially invited to attend. A rota will be sent out to families early next week with the dates and we look forward to welcoming you. I wrote to you all earlier in the week about the forthcoming industrial action that is scheduled to take place across the country in the coming weeks. Further details will be sent out to families once I have further information about this. Please keep abreast of your emails and thank you for your continued support.
The word of the week is – FILIPENDULOUS – hanging by a thread.
THIS WEEK’S EXAMPLES OF THE CHILDREN’S WORK –
POEM OF THE WEEK –
DROPPING YOUR CHILD TO SCHOOL IN THE MORNING SECOND WEEK – I wrote to you all last Wednesday about dropping your child to school and the rules associated with this important part of the school day. Whilst we understand that for many young children this can be a difficult part of the day, it is a vitally important step in their development. Parents and carers in Nursery and Reception ONLY are allowed on site to ensure that their child arrive safely to their class but children in Years 1 – 6 must come on to the site on their own. We will of course allow you to accompany your child to their class if they experience distress. Only family members will be permitted on site at this time. Please remember to follow these simple but necessary rules. If you are spoken to about coming on to site when it is not permitted, please remember that we are working together for the good of the school community and for the safety of the children and we do not expect to be challenged because of this. Thank you for your continued support with this matter.
ATTENDANCE AND PUNCTUALITY – There were 19 children from 17 families who were late to school on 28 occasions this week. Please make every effort to be on time for school, the effect it has on your child can have a lasting impact on their rates of progress.
