The sun has shone for most of the week, allowing the children to run off steam at break time and lunchtime. We have enjoyed listening to the various Assemblies that have been held, all using either the school hall, or via Zoom. We are remaining vigilant around the children, and are so pleased that the parents are being safe and considerate too, thank you all.
School Meals : Delivery problems & changes
We would like to make you aware of the POSSIBILITY of our school dinner menus changing at short notice. Our Head of Kitchen, Angie, will do her best to keep to the menu we send out. With the lack of drivers causing problems across many areas of the UK, a change might be needed at some point. We will notify you as soon as we can, if this situation arises. Thank you
The children will be celebrating Harvest Festival in St Peters Church on Tuesday 12th October. The service will be at 10.30. There is not enough room to have parents in the church too. Hopefully, the children will tell you about the service when they get home.
Year 5 Visit: Dr Matthew Bothwell
We are very pleased to confirm that Dr Bothwell will be here in school, next Thursday, to see the Year 5 children. He will be talking about Space and his previous visits have always made the children ask so many questions. We look forward to his visit.
PTA Christmas Fair
Our school PTA are having a meeting on Thursday 7th October at 6pm, here in school, to discuss what to do for the Fair this year. Sadly, they will not be able to do anything, without YOUR help. Please do join them on the 7th, to give your support and ideas. The school would be truly lost without the amazing fundraising that the PTA does. See you there!
Year 4 Visit to Newmarket Academy
Due to the current Covid situation at the Academy, our Year 4 visit for the "What's in My Lunchbox" session, has been cancelled. We are hoping to be able to have this session at another time. Sorry.
2nd Choice Dinners
Please do remember to sign your child up for the 2nd choice, if required, via the website. You must sign up by each Sunday evening, the kitchen ladies do not have any extra 2nd choice meals once the dinners have been given out. Thank you
Please do try not to let your child's dinner debts get too high. We do send out the debtor letters, but we also would like to ask that you keep a record of how many dinners your child has, to make sure you remain in credit. The online payment system is now working again as per the link below:
Children in Year 3 do now need to pay for their school dinners, as the Universal Free School Meal system ceases as the children go into Year 3. The link above can be used to pay online.

Please do send the blue form back for your Year 5/6 child's visit to Horstead next year. The children will have a great time, the centre is very well-equipped and has lots of different activities on offer.
The children have been working hard in school, take a peek to see what they've been up to...
