Infant - Weekly Email - Friday 1st December

Dear Parent/Carer,

We hope everyone enjoyed seeing the school fully prepared for Christmas this morning - our Christmas elves have been working extremely hard and it has been worth every moment  to see the look on the children's faces. As the weather is growing more wintery please ensure your child has a warm coat to wear.
Parent Helpers
Thank you so much to all our parent helpers who make such a difference to the childrens education. Due to the upcoming festive events we will not require any further help for the rest of this term so please take the opportunity to have a well earned break!
Near miss on School Lane
Unfortunately a young child was very nearly hit by a car pulling away, understandably the mother and child were both very shaken. PLEASE do not park on School Lane or in the Memorial Car Park, we have parking permits available for you to park in Blizzards Yard car park (behind Co-Op).
Well done to all the children who have logged onto Mathseeds this week - it is great to see so many of you using it. The children who have spent the most time using it from each class this week are:
Ruby - Carina and Kairon
Emerald - Alfie F, Marnie and Ada
Amethyst - Isla and Millie
Diamond - Malou and Frankie
Spare Underwear
If anyone has any spare knickers age 5-9 please could they be donated to the school medical room.
Christmas Lunch Day - Wednesday 6th December
Children are invited to wear a festive jumper over their regular school uniform should they wish to for this occasion. 
Chistmas Post Box 
The post box is now available in Reception for the children to post cards to their friends. Please ensure that the child's full name and class is written on the envelope to help the elves deliver them! Please ensure that sweets and chocolate are NOT put into envelopes or brought into school.
