Macmillan Coffee morning
Thank you to all of the parents who donated their time, baked goods and money at our Macmillan coffee morning this morning. It was lovely to spend time talking to you and the children have definitely appreciated the many cakes on offer.
Thank you to all who baked cakes and goodies or donated treats for the event. Special mentions to Mrs Singh for her amazing design and to Mrs Johnson and Momo for their great tasting cakes.
We will be celebrating the Harvest Festival on Friday 4th October and all of the children in each class will be contributing to our celebration. Harvest Festival is a time when we give thanks for all that God has provided for us. Each class will be collecting tinned goods and other non-perishable items to donate to our local food bank. Further information will be sent through your class teachers. This year as part of CAFOD’s Harvest activities we are asking the children to come dressed in bright colours and to support CAFOD by bringing £1 – https://cafod.org.uk
This year we are continuing to introduce the role of class parent to help improve communication between home and school and also to increase parent involvement. Class parents are the coordinators of support for your child’s class. They help organise support for teachers and class room activities as needed and facilitate a sense of community among the children’s families. They strengthen communication between the school and the families. Thank you to those who have already volunteered. Please see the list below. We do, however, still need someone for Year 5?
|Class||Parent’s name||Child’s name|
|Year 6||Pretty Patel||Anjali|
|Year 4||Mansi Saraiya + Amanda Simpson||Vihaan + Larelle|
|Year 3||Bola Boboye||Nathan|
|Year 2||Kiren Sanghera + Nkechi Ogu||Jayan + Nkem|
|Year 1||Bola Boboye + Tahera Patel||Samantha + Zakariya|
All children should now be in full winter uniform. This should include a blazer and hat to be worn every day. If you are wearing a coat it should be one of the two regulation school coats. Nursery children should all be wearing nursery jogging bottoms, jumpers and polo shirt.
All children should be wearing black shoes and the girls should only be wearing the revere collar shirts and not shirts that button all the way to the neck.
Prize Day Trophies
Congratulations to all the children who won their class cup at prize day. A reminder to please have your child’s name engraved and return the cup to the school office as soon as possible. These will then be displayed in our trophy cabinet outside the main office. Thank you to those who have already returned them.
Please make sure that your children’s belongings are clearly labelled. There are a number of items already in lost property. The Year 6 pupils will be displaying lost property for collection each Friday morning before school. Please be advised that if there is no name and it has not been claimed, uniform items will be sent to the used uniform shop and non-uniform items will be given to the local charity shop.
Congratulations to Reception, Year 4 and Year 5 who had perfect attendance this week. Well done to Reception for perfect punctuality last week. Hopefully this week we have even more classes with no absences and no lates.
Please can you inform the office if you have any new contact details (email address, phone, address, etc.).
