NEWSLETTER 04 – 31ST OCTOBER 2016
THANK YOU - HARVEST FESTIVAL COLLECTION
Thank you for your contributions to the harvest display. The Charity Hope asked me to pass on their thanks.
This year, The Royal British Legion is asking the nation to Rethink Remembrance by recognising the sacrifices made not just by the Armed Forces of the past, but by today’s generation too. We have poppies available in the school entrance. As always children are being reminded to write their names on.
NO DOGS IN THE PLAYGROUND/BY THE GATES
A reminder that only guide dogs are allowed on the playground - we have several children who become very upset when they see them. Could you also not tie dogs up near the school gates as this also causes distress. Thank you for your understanding.
PLANNERS ARE IMPORTANT
The teachers have reminded all children today about the importance of having their planner in school every day. Can I ask that parents record a child’s reading in their planner regularly and remember that a child doesn’t always have to read to you, they can read on their own and tell you about what they have read.
REMINDER - PARENTS EVENING
We are looking forward to meeting with you at the first Parent/Teacher Consultation Meeting of the school year on Monday 7th and Tuesday 8th November.
