Key Stage 1 have Amazing Adventures!

The children in Key Stage 1 have been continuing to learn about Amazing Adventures this term.  Last week they were joined by their parents to make model boats out of junk, and this week they have been having Amazing Adventures learning about the signs of Autumn during a visit to Arboretum Park.



On Friday 18th November we will be raising money for the Children in Need appeal.  Look out for the separate letter giving more details of what your child’s class will be doing to raise money.    Children may also wear their own clothes for a 50p donation - the theme is



Year 5 & 6 - Biscuit with a Book

All Year 5 and 6 parents are invited to come and have a “biscuit with a book” with their child in class on Wednesday 16th November from 2.45pm till 3.15pm.  Please come to the school office at 2.40pm and you will be taken to your child’s class.  We look forward to seeing you!


Parent Questionnaires

On Monday you will receive a Parent Questionnaire form.  It is very important for us to understand the views of our parents, so please could you complete it and return to your child’s class teacher by next Friday, 18th  November.  All questionnaires received by this date will be entered into a draw to win a prize!



We will be holding our next Arbo Activators afternoon as part of our Children in Need celebrations on Friday 18th November.  Parents are invited to come along to watch their child, and join in if they wish!  Pupils are invited to bring in a 50p donation to take part, which will be collected for Children in Need.

The times will be:

1:20 - 1:40pm  Reception

1:45 - 2:05pm  Years 1 and 2

2:10 - 2:30pm  Years 3 and 4

2:35 - 2:55pm  Years 5 and 6



The law in the UK says that all children who are under 12 years old and less than 135cm tall MUST use a suitable car seat.  It is dangerous, as well as illegal, for a child to travel in a car with no seatbelt or with just an adult seatbelt, as it is not designed to fit them and will not protect them correctly in a crash.  Babies must be in a suitable car seat, and must not be carried.
