'A Christmas Recipe' - Please check your child's book bag for a note about the costume they will need for our Nativity play: 'A Christmas Recipe'. Please make every effort to have the costume at school by Friday, 30th November 2018. Please ensure that it is clearly labelled with your child's name.
Big Sing/ Little Sing Concert Wednesday 12th December - just a reminder to send the reply slip back into school asap. The children have loved learning all of the songs for the concert and they sound so good! They have learnt all of the actions and we are looking forward to seeing them and hearing them on stage joining in with children from other schools in Witham. Please could you make every effort to bring your child to the concert to sing. This will be an amazing experience! All of the details are in the letter we sent home last week.
Church Visit - Friday 9th November
Parent Teacher Consultations - Tuesday, 30th October. Your child should have brought home a confirmation slip with their appointment time. If the reply slip was not returned to us, an appointment has been allocated to you. Please check the attached 'timetable' to check your time if you are unsure or if your child was away from school on Thursday.
PE kits - PE kits were sent home on Thursday. Please use the half term break to check your child's PE bag and ensure that they have everything that they need. Please return PE kits to school on Monday, 29th October (first day back at school after half term).

Our topic in RE is Belonging and we have been looking at Baptism. If your child has been baptised and they have one of the following; a candle, a blanket, an item of clothing or photo of their baptism, could they please bring them in to show the class on Tuesday, 30th October.
A huge thank you for the gifts of stationery we have received so far! There was great excitement from me and the children as we unpacked the carrier bags and displayed the gifts. We really appreciate your generosity!
Please have a look in your child's book bag tonight (Friday) for a letter regarding flu vaccinations as well as a page to insert into the Homework Helper. My sincere apologies for the mistake that crept in. Please replace the page with the mistake with the page sent home tonight.
