Junior - Weekly Email

Dear All
Thank you to the children who have been playing us in to assembly this week - it has been lovely to hear Krish, Sienna and Lyzette on the piano.
Parent Information Meetings - we hope the meetings for parents were helpful and informative. Copies of Topic Guides and other presentations will be added to the class pages for the appropriate year groups - Year 3,  Year 4,  Year 5 and Year 6.
Year 3 and year 6 Workshops - thank you to all of the parents who have made contributions towards the costs of either the Year 3 Egyptian or the Year 6 Greek Day activities. These will both take place as scheduled but if you have not yet made a contribution, and are able to do so, it would be much appreciated if you could either send payment via the School Office or via ParentPay. Year 6 are looking for a few more parents to come in to help with the workshops in the morning (costume is optional for adult helpers) - please talk to your child's class teacher or let the office know if you are able to help. Year 3 do not need extra helpers for their workshop day.
Year 6 Open Days and Open Evenings - if you are planning to take your child to an Open Morning at a local Secondary School please can you let the school office know in advance so that they can be registered and school meal orders can also be noted. A flyer from the Misbourne School is attached.
School Meals - each morning we place an order for the number of school meals, required for that day, with our hub kitchen. This order is placed by 09:20 and is based on children telling their teacher that they want a school meal that day. If you know that your child will miss morning registration for any reason (medical or other appointment, travel delays or not feeling 100% at the start of the day) you must place your school meal order for your child, with the School Office, by 09:20. If no order is placed no meal will be ordered for them and they will need to bring in a packed lunch when they come in to school. We have had quite a few children who turn up in the lunch queue for a school meal but who have not ordered a meal for that day. As you can understand this can make it difficult for the people serving the meals.
Year 4 trip to Woodrow - a polite reminder that all payments should have been made for the Year 4 trip to Woodrow by now, unless you have spoken to a member of the office team or to Mrs Peal or Mrs English to arrange a payment plan. Please can payments be made as soon as possible by ParentPay if possible.
