Friday News for Families 25.09.20

Dear parents and carers ,
we have been introducing the core subjects of reading, writing and maths this week as part of our Exploration Fortnight. The children have worked really hard. Please can they have a rest over this weekend as they are probably feeling tired.
 
SCHOOL PHOTOS
These will be on Monday 19th October. There will be NO PE on that day so that all of the children can look smart in their uniform.
 
RUCKSACKS AND BAGS
As we move through the term and are now needing trainers, water bottles, reading books etc to be transported to and from school, it may be useful for the children to have a small rucksack or bag.
 
MESSY CHURCH
Please find attached an invite from Rev. Richard to take part in an exciting ‘Messy Church’ event.
 
PLAYGROUND EQUIPMENT
Please can you ensure that your children are NOT playing on the playground equipment before or after school.
 
HARVEST
We are unable to hold our Harvest celebrations in the Church this year. We are excited to share with you our alternative arrangements.
The week beginning 28th September we would ask if each family could bring a tin or packet of food for Bognor Foodbank. We will have a box at the front of the school by the office and one by the steps at the staff entrance to collect your donations.
PUMPKIN PRAYER PATCH
We are going to be creating our own Harvest Prayer Space at the front of the school. The children will be reflecting on all that they are thankful for and creating pumpkin themed decorations for our oak tree. Please find attached an invitation for families and our local church to be involved too. Rev Richard will be sharing this invite with his parishioners.
Have a fabulous weekend. We look forward to seeing you on Monday for the second week of our ‘Exploration Fortnight’.
Take Care
