Weekly News for Families 15.10.2021

Dear Parents and Carers,
What a busy week it has been in school again! We really enjoyed showing some of our prospective parents around with our Year 6 tour guides this morning and are looking forward to our remaining tours tomorrow morning. 
Playground Leaders
Congratulations to our new Playground Leaders who have completed their training this week. We are very proud of Brandon, Joshua, Ethan L, Maisie, Sofia, Lily H, Alys, Alfie K, Dave, Chae, Eva, Ethan O, Casey, Reggie and Harley.  The sports coach that led the training commented on how well they engaged and took on board the training. We introduced them to the school at our Whole School Worship this afternoon and our Key Stage 1 pupils are already very excited about working with them.
Monday 18th October 2021 is school photo day. There will be NO PE on this day and children will need to all come to school wearing their full school uniform. Children who attend Outdoor Explorers or Badminton Club will need to bring a suitable change of clothing for their club at the end of the day. 
Harvest Donations for the Food Bank
We are looking forward to seeing from Hannah from Bognor Regis Foodbank at our worship on Monday. We are going to share our reflections on the theme of thankfulness with her when she collects our Harvest donations. Thank you once again for your generosity. 
Christmas Cards
In school this week, the children will be designing and creating their Christmas Cards for publishing. On Friday, each child will come home with their design and instructions for ordering.  Please note ALL ordering must be completed online and the original form must be returned to your child’s teacher on Monday 1st November when we return to school after half term. 
Reporting Absence
If your child is unable to attend school for any reason, please make sure you notify us using Parent Mail. If, for any reason, you are unable to use ParentMail please ensure you email office@yaptonschool.org NOT your child’s class teacher as the class emails are not always checked in the morning. 
6 Weeks In Celebration
We are looking forward to celebrating our youngest children’s first 6 weeks in school with us on Thursday 21st October 2021. These families have already received an invitation.  The children are very proud of the work they have completed already. 
Have a great weekend
Take Care
