MOTHER’S DAY SERVICE – FRIDAY 29 FEBRUARY
On Friday 29 February we are holding a Mother’s Day Service at St Michael’s. KS1 and Foundation will be at 9.30-10.30am, and KS2 at 10.30-11.30am. Parents are welcome to attend this event at the Church where they will be invited to sit with their child and join in with the activities. There will be a limit of 2 adults per child. To help us with numbers, please complete the attached slip and return to the office by Monday 25 February.
EARLY MORNING ARRIVALS
May we remind parents that children cannot be left at school before supervision on the playground is available at 8.30am. Children are not to come into the classrooms before 8.30am. Please ensure your child arrives in school between 8.30am and 8.45am ready for registration at 8.50am
YEAR 5 EVENING SINGING PERFORMANCE – TUESDAY 4 MARCH
On Tuesday 4 March our Year 5 children will join other Year 5 pupils from our Pyramid of Schools for an evening singing concert at Thomas Mills High School.
SHARE OUR WORK – WEDNESDAY 5 MARCH 3.15pm to 4.00pm
The ‘Share our Work’ sessions have proved popular over the last couple of years. We would like to invite parents into the classrooms at the end of the school day where their children will show them their trays and discuss their work with you. The teachers will be available for general help and advice but it is not intended that this be an opportunity to discuss your child’s progress with their teacher in detail. If you wish to make an appointment for another time, please speak with the teacher. If you have more than one child in the school, you may wish to visit each class with the other siblings so that you can enjoy looking at each other’s tray together. The Nursery children will not be taking part in this.
We look forward to seeing you at this event, which we think will be most enjoyable.
Could we ask bus parents to please make it quite clear to their children if they are to travel home on the bus or not on this day? There will be no Maypole or Holy Horrors on this day.
SUMMER DRESSES AND OTHER UNIFORM
We have many girls’ excellent quality school summer dresses for sale in all sizes. They will be available outside the School Office on Wednesday 5 March (Share our Work Day) until Friday 7 March. They can be purchased for a donation to the school. We will gladly receive any dresses that are found to be too small this year – come and do a swap! Other uniform is also available.
WORLD BOOK DAY EVENT – FRIDAY 7 MARCH
To celebrate World Book Day the children can come to school dressed as their favourite book character. Lessons and playtime will continue as normal, so costumes and footwear still need to be practical for a day at school.
PARENT HELP NEEDED
We would really like to hear from any parents willing to come in to help mount the children’s work for the many displays we put up in classrooms and around the school. One of our TAs would train you to give you the skills needed. We are looking for volunteers from 2-3pm on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and/or 3-4pm on Thursdays. Please contact the office if you would like to help. Thank you.
CONCERNS OVER PARKING
We have understandably had a complaint from the residents of Coucy Close who are concerned over the continued use of their road as a car park at school drop off and collection times. It appears that there have been a number of instances of driveways and access to properties being blocked by inconsiderate or illegal parking. Please can we remind parents not to park where it would inconvenience residents of Coucy Close. Thank you.
To reduce the repeated occurrences of Head Lice across the school, please can we ask parents to regularly check for the presence of the lice and eggs, and treat them (not just when you get a class letter about it). For advice on ways to treat head lice, please see the leaflet on the parent notice board and we have some copies at the office.
