Rest and relaxation afternoon - Year one had a lovely afternoon decorating biscuits with icing and sweets and then snuggling down to watch the Robin Hood film
Pupil Progress Meetings - Tuesday 17th October - Please note that I have sent home a slip with the time of your meeting with me. If you had not returned the letter indicating a preferred time, then I allocated you a time from the slots I had remaining.
Focus children week beginning 9th October: Kinga, John, James Martin, Tiyamike. These children have a form for you to fill in & return to school on Monday 9/10.
Thank you for the many coats and wellieswhich have made their way in to school. If you have not sent these items in already, please send them in soon. October is upon us & the weather looks likely to be more changeable. A friendly reminder to label all items sent in to school. Many thanks, too, for the donations of goodies for our outside area. Please feel free to donate more. The woodwork bench is very nearly ready to be used. I can't wait!
We have a new RE theme starting during the course of next week. The theme is 'Belonging' & centres around Baptism. Please be prepared for the children coming home & asking for items from a special club or group they belong to. This could be your child's swimming cap or swimming certificate, their uniform or t-shirt for Rainbows or Beavers, their gymnastics kit, etc. I will also be encouraging the children to bring in items from when they were baptised - photos, candles, etc. You might want to gather these together in preparation for the requests. Thank you for all of the family photos - I will be sending them home during the course of this week.
Reading & Phonics: Please read with your child every night. I have had quite a few notes in Reading Logs commenting on how difficult reading is proving to be at the moment. Please do persevere. We are currently retesting the children on their phonics & we are putting together some information & worksheets which I will explain more about when I see you at the Parent Teacher Meetings soon.
Home/ School Agreements: You should all have received a home/ school agreement. Please ensure that you sign it & return it to school as soon as possible.
Tapestry: It is up and running for Year 1 & I have started to upload photos and comments.
