Junior - Weekly Email

Dear all


Once again thank you to everyone for their patience with the delayed start due to snow on Monday. Fortunately the weather improved in time for the Year 5 Hike Day on Wednesday and we have been able to do our daily mile on most days this week for Sport Relief. Year 4 have had children at the annual football festival at Davenies and also a visit to the Neasden temple. This is the first time that we have visited this temple and it was an excellent visit - very welcoming staff and very informative. Thank you to all of the parents who once again have supported these activities this week and enabled them to take place - especially those of you who took groups out on the hike.


Year 6 Bake sale - last Friday's cake sale raised £95 for the Environmental area. Thank you to them and to Mrs Naylor whose company is match funding this amount. Also thank you to the Eco Warriors have been doing some litter picking around school as part of the Great British Spring Clean project.

Parking permits - We are very pleased that the council have agreed to continue the Parking Permits for the Blizzards Yard car park. If you have a Parking Permit and would like to continue to use it please can you either email the School Office or pop into the Office so that we can replace your current permit, as these have an end date of the Easter Holidays. If you would like to use this scheme but have lost the Parking Permit that was sent home please also let us know.


PTA Hot Dog Lunch orders are now closed - if you have not placed an order for a hot dog lunch for Wednesday please remember to send in a packed lunch with your child that day.


Readers in afternoons - no parent or volunteer readers in school this last week of term.


Sport Relief - thank you to everyone who came in their sports kits today. It was lovely to see some of the different sports that the children do and the clubs that they belong to or support. The total collected so far is £254 but we will still accept donations next week.
