We have had a good week, the children have enjoyed their outside space, whirling around in the wind (it was super windy on Tuesday!!) and having fun with their friends. They have also been working very hard in class, learning new things every day and taking part in Assemblies via Zoom.
We hope you have a safe and relaxing half-term. We are all looking forward to being able to turn the alarm clock off and having a hot cup of tea!! Take good care & stay safe.
Individual & Sibling Photographs: The missed ones!
The photographer came and took the photo's of those who missed the first session for illness or other reasons. Hopefully, all children will now have had their picture taken, with siblings too if they have some in school. The final day for sending proofs in (from the first time the photographer was here), is Tuesday 2nd November. Any orders received after then will incur a late charge.
Nasal Flu Vaccines
Many thanks to those of you who have returned the orange form for the vaccines here in school on the 4th November. For those we have not yet received, we would ask that you return the form during our first week back. The nurses will then be able to add any late forms to the catch-up date on 2nd December.
Christmas Cards for the PTA
The children have been designing their own Christmas cards here in school. Their artwork has been sent home this week. If you would like to order some cards, please do so using the details on the back of the artwork. The online portal to order their artwork will remain open until 29th October, we must have all ordered artwork back here in school by 2nd November at the VERY latest.
