Dear Parent/Carer,

                                  The children will start the ‘Water Bottle Challenge’ next week which is a competition to bring a water bottle to use in class each day.  Each Friday in assembly, the class who bring the most water bottles will be awarded a certificate. Water bottles for classrooms need to have sports tops and only have water in as set out in our Healthy Schools Policy.

Next week the school are coming off timetable for a week with a focus on the ‘Arts’. The children will experience a range of activities from both staff as well as from outside specialists. The activities will include dance, felt making, drama, drumming and dance workshops. On Monday we will have a visit from David Mason a well-known author who will read to the children and do a drama workshop with year groups. Included in tonight’s letter is a leaflet about David and his work. He will be in the School Reception on Monday from 3.15p.m with his books and happy to autograph any purchases.

We have been made aware of some near accidents with children playing in the car park when they are collected from school and after school clubs.  Can I remind you that although we do manage the front of the school as safely as possible, it is your responsibility to supervise your children closely when they are being picked up. Children should not play near any cars and also scooters should be walked with and not ridden on at all times in school grounds.
