Junior - Weekly email - Friday 22nd October

Dear Parents / Carers
We wish you all a happy and healthy half term break.
Remote Learning Update - we are not planning to be doing remote learning after half term as the time out of school this week will hopefully have provided a fire break. There will be a letter sent to all parents on Friday 29th October with details about the return to school. 
We will of course be reviewing the situation with Thames Valley Health Team and Bucks Council if this is required.
Year 6 swimming - as Bonsai's swimming lesson planned for Wednesday 20th October had to be cancelled, we have rebooked their last swimming lesson for Wednesday 3rd November. Acacia will now start their block of swimming lessons on Wednesday 10th November
Meal booking after half term - don't forget to order meals for next half term - booking is possible up until Friday 15th November

Menu change - Wednesday 3rd November the roast will be Chicken not Turkey as advertised.
School photos - order sheets for these will be delivered to school after half term and will be sent home with children
Communicating with teachers - Please note that Google Classroom is for children to communicate with their teacher and not for parents to communicate with staff. If a teacher feels they need to get in touch with parents as a result of messages on google classroom then the teacher will make contact directly with the parent.Please send any messages for teachers via the school office. Thank you
Annual Walk to School Week - New Date week starting Monday 8th November  - During this week we ask that all of the children walk all or part of their route to school. Class teachers will keep a register of who has walked each day and the winning class will win the Golden Welly and receive a whole class treat.We will also hold assemblies for each school to talk about keeping safe near the roads.

During the week the children who are taking part can:


  • Monday 8th November - wear trainers
  • Tuesday 9th  - wear their brightest headgear/bandana/headbands with trainers
  • Wednesday 10th - wear their brightest socks/brightest odd socks with trainers
  • Thursday 11th - wear their own jumper with school skirts/dresses/trousers with trainers
  • Friday 12th - All children who have walked all or part of their route to school each day can wear their own clothes with trainers. Making sure they are warm and dressed sensibly for a day at school.


We hope you embrace this opportunity to walk together so we  can reduce the pollution levels around the schools and improve wellbeing.
