Juniors Weekly email (sent Friday 7th Sep)

Dear All

 

It has been lovely to see everyone back in school this week. We have another week of Learn to Learn before normal timetabled lessons begin. Maths Club and Breakfast club will be running next week but no other clubs.

 

Mental Maths - the letter giving details of Mental 5 Squared Maths for this term is attached.

 

Parent Governor Elections - see attached letter with details of governor vacancies.

 

Class Parent Reps - due to GDPR regulations we are not able to pass on details of parents. We will be using Class LIst software this year for such communications and this will be launched to parent reps once they have been confirmed. If you would like to be a class rep please contact your class teacher.

 

Maths and reading helpers - a letter is attached with details of our maths helpers scheme. If you would like to help with reading in class please contact your class rep (if you have one), your class teacher or the School Office. We will be asking helpers to come in, from Monday 17th September, once our learn to learn weeks have been completed.
