Dear Parents and Carers,

we had a school full of reindeer to finish our term! The Reindeer Runs were completed outside. Please return your envelopes in January if you haven’t done so already. Thank you.

Thank you to everyone who donated items for our hampers and bought raffle tickets. We raised £434.00 which will go towards developing our Library. Thank you also to Mrs Payne, Mrs Robinson and Mrs Sothcott for their tireless work in organising this event.


Miss Parsons has organised an exciting ‘Geography Challenge’ which will take place in the Spring Term. I have attached the details to this ParentMail and further information will be shared with the children when we return to school in January. Watch this space..!


I have attached information of another ‘Christmas Holiday Camp’ to be held next week.


We say ‘goodbye’ to Miss Bevan today and thank her for her hard work whilst she was here. We will miss her and wish her the very best for her new adventures. Arundel Class will be taught by Mrs Isaac from Monday to Thursday and Mr Blackman on a Friday.

We also say a fond farewell to Mrs West who has chosen to make a career change. She would like thank all the pupils, parents and colleagues, past and present, who made her time at Yapton so enjoyable and fulfilling and wishes them all the best for the future.


The children are excited to find out about their next Learning Journey.

Our youngest children will travel back in time when houses were made from wood and straw!

Lower KS2 will be considering their part in making our world a better place.

Upper KS2 will become scientists for the day carrying out an exciting investigation.

Thank you for all of our gifts.

We have been touched by your generosity.

Have a fabulous festive season.

We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday 3rd January.

Take care

Kim Huggett
