PARENTS OF YEAR 4 CHILDREN IN YELLOW & AMBER CLASSES

After February half term Yellow and Amber Year 4 children will need a swimming kit of a one-piece costume, towel, swimming cap.  They can also bring a piece of fruit to eat in school afterwards.  We also ask for a voluntary contribution each week of £1.00 towards the coach costs.  Thank you.

 

Peach and Orange Year 4 children will need a games kit consisting of a t-shirt, trainers, leggings or jogging bottoms and a jumper.

 

SAFER INTERNET DAY – 9 FEBRUARY 2016

On Tuesday, 9th February it is Safer Internet Day.  This year’s theme is Play Your Part for a better internet.  Please look out for the flyer to help you promote a safer internet with your family.  On Safer Internet Day your child will be taking part in activities to promote e-safety.

 

TEA TIME CLUB

It has been brought to my attention that a large number of parents owe money to Tea Time Club.  We are in the process of recovering these debts, however, if this continues then I will have no alternative other than to change payment arrangements and possibly implement a further price increase to cover staff time involved in this.  Please ensure you pay for the session your child has attended when you collect them.  Thank you for your support.

 

FRIDAY, 5TH FEBRUARY

WEAR RED FOR BRITISH HEART FOUNDATION

We are supporting the British Heart Foundation on Friday, 5th February.  Children are requested to wear something red and put a donation in the box at the entrance to school.  Thank you in advance for your continued support.

 

Yours sincerely
