Infant - Weekly Email - Friday 13th October

Dear Parents/Carers,
School Day 
The school day starts at 08.55 with the doors opening at 08.45 and finishes at 15.15. Please ensure your child is here by 08.55 as it is very disruptive for both them and the other children walking into class late.
If you are late to school please sign your child in using the tablet at reception.
Maths Story Books
We are continuing with our weekly maths focused storytime to help children embed key skills through stories. If you would like to help the school and donate a book, please click on the link below:
A big thank you to those of you who have already ordered one of the books off of our wishlist. Can you please give them into the office for the attention of Mrs Ketley once you have bought one. Thank you!
Thursday 19th October - Infant & Nursery PTA AGM
The AGM will be held at 20.00 in the School Hall. Anyone is welcome to attend and have an input. We will cover what we achieved last year, money we raised, what events went well (what we would do again / what we may change), how we may spend funds going forward, and a forward look of events for the year. 
Attending does not mean you have to join the PTA, it’s chance to hear and have a say. But volunteers (for either the committee or our friends group) are always welcome and needed! See the attached poster on benefits of each. 
Pink Scooter
A pink scooter was left in the playground on Monday and is in the office waiting for collection! Please collect before half term otherwise it will go to charity.
