St Angela’s Feast Day
A big thank you to Father Rob for coming to celebrate the feast of St Angela, our patron saint, with us this morning. Thank you to those who came to celebrate it with us and for Year 5 with Mrs Malik for preparing Mass so well. The children have all been learning about who Angela Merici was and why she is important so please take a look in the classrooms for it!
The next class assembly will be Year 1 and will take place on Friday 1st February at 9:10am in the hall. Year 1 parents and friends are invited to attend.
Number Day will be held next Friday 1st February. Please see the letter sent out for more details.
Bee an Artist

Congratulations to our new School Council Representatives for this term: Gabrielle, Edha, Kieran, Michael and Raphael. They are hoping to run a charity event during the Spring Term to raise money for the flood relief in Kerala. A big thank you to our outgoing representatives who worked so hard last term.
Year 1 trip to Kensington Palace
We are learning about Queen Victoria for history in year 1. On the 22nd January Year 1 went to Kensington Palace and looked in the different rooms to see how Queen Victoria and the other members of the royal family used to live. We had a lot of fun!
Reception trip to the Fire Station
The Reception class had an enjoyable and informative trip to Ilford Fire Station. They were met by the firecrew who showed them the ‘Watch room.’ They were even treated to a fire person sliding down a pole. The best part of the trip they all agreed was actually using the hose and firing water. Thank you to all our parent helpers, we hope you enjoyed the trip as much as we did!
At the start a new year a few reminders about how you can help us to keep the children safe whist they are at school.
To ensure the safety of our pupils, I would like to kindly ask that you close the school gates securely after you walk through them. These gates are guarded with a security code and any parent with a pupil at the school will have this code. Please do not be afraid to close the gates if you do not know the person behind you. Equally, please do not be offended if a parent closes the gate in front of you as they may not recognise you. We must all work together as a school community to keep our children safe. Thank you very much for your cooperation and help to ensure the safety of our pupils.
We ask that parents do not park on the double yellow lines on the corner of Coventry and Morland Road as it obstructs the view of anyone turning into the corner. Please do not park on the zig zag lines to enable pupils and parents to walk out of the school safely.
Can I please also remind everyone that the parking bays in the front of the school are for staff only and must not be used in the morning for dropping off. This is currently causing staff lateness which impacts on your own children.
The week of 11th February will be Enterprise Week. The Year 6s will learn about how to look after money and explore aspects of financial wellbeing. During this week we are looking for visitors to come and talk to the Year 6s about their work and how managing finances is important. If you are able and willing to come in please email Ms O’Loughlin on firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a time to visit.
If your child has any siblings eligible to join our nursery either in the Summer term (3 years old by 31st March 2019) or Autumn term (3 years old by 31st August 2019) please submit your registration form as soon as possible as the spaces are fast being filled. Equally the same applies if they have a sibling of an age to join our Reception class in September (4 years old by 31st August 2019) as together with our existing nursery children and registrations from other children we are fast reaching our limit.
Congratulations to Year 4 who had no lates this week. Unfortunately, there were no classes this week with no absences. Hopefully next week we have even more classes with no absences and no lates.
Please can you inform the office if you have any change in your contact details (email address, phone, address, etc.).
