SUMMER TERM (2nd HALF) NEWSLETTER
Welcome back to the last term of the academic year 2009/10. We were blessed with good weather over the holiday and I hope everyone had a good break and are ready for a very busy term.
Here's some new information and all the dates for events.
We have written an Asthma Policy which has been agreed by all members of staff. It has been posted on our website and a copy is available to borrow form the school office.
As usual we have accumulated a lot of lost property - especially jumpers as they are taken off in the hot weather and left lying around! All named items are returned to children quickly. We will put out un-named items of lost property on tables in the playground on Wednesday this week. You may take unclaimed items and may wish to make a donation to school funds in return.
Years R, 1 and 2 will begin swimming lessons this term. Year R will swim on Friday afternoons, Year 1 will swim on Friday mornings, Year 2 will swim on Thursday mornings. Please could you ensure that children have their swimming things on the right day and let us know if they are not able to go swimming - we won't be able to make phone calls if kit if forgotten.
Clubs will continue as per the schedule we sent out last term and as on our website. The summer term is very busy with classes going on trips and teachers taking teams to tournaments etc. It may be necessary to cancel a club for week. We will inform the children and text out to you at least a couple of days in advance where possible.
Reading Scheme Books
We are changing from the Oxford Reading Tree scheme (Biff and Chip) to Big Cat by Collins. Please bear with us during this period as the changeover will be gradual during this half term.
A reminder of prices for breakfast club this term are:
8-8.50am £3 per session or £12 for the week
8.25-8.50am £1 per session or £4 for the week
Reduced rates for all term booking and pre-paying (7 weeks)
If you would like to take up this offer you must pay in advance at the school office. Unfortunately we will not be able to give refunds if for some reason your child misses a morning.
