Welcome to Term 2 19/20

We hope you have all had a restful break over the last 2 weeks. A huge thank you to everyone who donated food at the end of term for the Foodbank, an amazing amount has been dropped off.

Just a little note to alert everyone of the work being carried out in the playground ahead of drop off tomorrow. Workmen are currently replacing slabs in our playground, it is looking great so far but sadly it is not quite complete yet. There will be areas of the playground fenced off, please tell your child to stay away from the fencing at all times. As soon as the slabs are finished our new markings will be going down on the tarmac area.

Most of the old slabs and rubble by the side gate was to be removed this afternoon. The work will be on-going over the next couple of days, please take care.

The school Halloween disco is taking place on Tuesday P1-3 4pm-5pm then P4-7 5.30pm-6.30pm. Hopefully you have already seen the poster – £1 entry. There will be juice available, doughnuts and apples (all included in price). Fancy dress encouraged.

The children are welcome to wear fancy dress to school on Thursday for Halloween.

Please take care on these darker nights, remember to ensure your child has a warm jacket each day and is prepared for all weathers. The cold weather is fast approaching and we want to ensure everyone is warm and safe. Reflectors and extra lights are always a good idea. Stick to the pavements and please avoid using the carpark as a shortcut.

There will be no after school clubs this week. The termly calendar will be with you by the end of this week along with permission slips if you want to sign your child up for anything this term.

Tomorrow morning will be the final session of “Raising Children with Confidence”. Carol has been booked to run a further course for anyone interested. More details will follow.

The witch from Room on The Broom appears to have arrived in the library, she looks forward to seeing all of the children in the morning. We are having a whole school focus on spooky vocabulary and sharing jokes with each other. We will be discussing staying safe when trick or treating at assembly this week and following up on our Stranger Danger message. It is hoped our Community Police Officer will be into school very early this term to talk to children / adults about staying safe.

See you soon everyone!

Goodbye old broken slabs 👍
