Junior Weekly email (Sent Friday 25th Jan)

Dear All

 

Thank you for your support and co-operation with our delayed start time on Wednesday after the heavy snowfall on Tuesday afternoon.

 

Parent Information Meeting - it was lovely to see parents at the meeting last night. A copy of the presentation is available on the website for those of you unable to attend.

 

The Eco Warriors held their ReLoved clothing pop up sale on Thursday lunchtime. Thank you to everyone that made a donation or who bought items. They made £10.50 with their sale and they have decided to donate this to the RSPCA. They also managed to save 21 items of clothing from going to landfill. A big thank you to the Eco Warriors for their help with setting up the pop up shop during their lunch break. Look out for their next PopUp sale next term.

 

Drum lessons with MD Drum Lab have started this week [ a copy of their letter is on the website here on the music page of the school website.]

 

Year 3 - Spring term topic pack has been added to the Year 3 page of the Year 3 page of the website

 

Year 5 Spring term topic pack has been added to the Year 5 page of the Year 5 page of the website

 

Year 6 - Thank you to parents who have made donations for the cost of the Brooklands trip that we can confirm will go ahead. Any parents who have not yet made a contribution and are able to do so please either send in money to the School Office or pay via ParentPay as there is still a small shortfall.
