Flying High Together

Newsletter 5th October 2021

Dear parents and carers,

I would just like to thank you all for the support you have shown to the many different themed days/fundraising events we have had in school. We were blown away with all the ‘words’ the children came dressed as on Friday. We also had a record amount donated to MacMillan for our children’s coffee morning and cake sale. We donated £167.00 to MacMillan on behalf of the children Thank you!

Amazon wishlist – Thank you to all the children and their families for the donations of books we have received from our Amazon wishlist. We have so many lovely new books for our library. I have been writing thank you cards to all families who donated a book, however many books came without a dedication slip inside. If you haven’t received a thank you card and have donated a book via amazon please text or email the school office and I will make sure one makes its way to you!

Reminder – Our book sale will take place on Monday/Tuesday./Wednesday this week to raise money for our new library. Books range from 10p-50p please pop in and buy a book all monies will go to new books for the school library. Thank you to everyone for donating pre-loved books we have been blown away by the number of donations we received.

Knowledge organisers – Attached to this newsletter will be the ‘knowledge organiser’ for your child, this will tell you a bit more about what they are learning in school at the moment. Hopefully this will help parents in supporting their child at home, even talking about the key words and events we are learning would be a great way to recap learning that has taken place in school.

Phonics parent sessions – Thank you to all the Reception and Key Stage One parents who joined us for our RWI phonics morning, the turnout was amazing and we really valued all the feedback you provided. Mrs Staves and I are looking at running a maths morning next as this was what parents suggested they would benefit from. The prize draw took place on Friday and Jack and Phoebe won the RWI prizes…well done!

Road safety – Following an incident on the main road we have asked the police to come and support school in delivering key safety messages. Our PCSO Mrs Jackson will be coming into school on Wednesday 13th October to deliver the ‘Talk to the bear’ assembly. The police will also be supporting the school at pick up and drop off times to ensure the school site remains a safe place for our children.

Mental health awareness week (#helloyellow) – This week in school we are working together to learn about what mental health is, how we can take care of our minds and giving the children different strategies to help when they find big feelings tricky. On the other side of this newsletter you will find the wellbeing bingo…why not have a go with your child, see if you can get a line or a full house! We would love to see what you have been doing on Twitter/Facebook.

A night at the movies themed lunch – On Thursday 7th October we will be having a night at the movies themed lunch for all children. Your child will be able to choose this menu at register time, if they bring a packed lunch from home and they would like a themed lunch please can they order this with their class teacher at registration.
On Friday we will be standing together to raise awareness of children’s mental health. Children are invited to come to school wearing something yellow…please do not panic this could be something as small as a ribbon, bobble or pair of socks. Your child does not need to bring a donation.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs D Edwards

Headteacher
