Dear Parents and Carers,
What an amazing first week! Our first day back saw Evacuees, Victorians and ‘crayonning’ artists return to school. The ‘hook’ for our Learning Journey this half-term was fabulous. You will be able to see the amazing learning that has begun and will continue this half term. Our ‘Time to Shine’ event is on Friday 10th December at the end of the school day. Our ‘Outdoor Classroom Day’ yesterday enabled the children to literally take their classroom outside! The learning experiences were rich and varied ranging from ‘pavement art’ to ‘algebra with sticks and leaves. Thank you for your support for both of these successful events.
On Tuesday 16 of our Y2 children performed at a dance event at the Alexandra Theatre in Bognor Regis. They performed to an audience of 350 people. They danced with confidence and won the hearts of those watching. Their behaviour was exemplary too. A huge congratulations to our amazing dancers- Jenny, Bonnie, Bani, Hanit, Maisie, Skye, Andrea, Ella, Poppy, Alex, Leo, Alfie S, Oliver L, Dexter, Isaac and Spencer. Thank you to Mrs Cummings and Mrs Wilson for making this happen.
The orders for the cards have been returned and we are excited to announce that we have raised just over £200 so far. This money will go towards additional maths resources for the classrooms. More information about the focus on maths resources will follow soon.
We are looking to have a ‘Christmas Tombola’ towards the end of term to raise further funds. I have had confirmation from the DJ that the Christmas discos will definitely go ahead as planned on Thursday 9th December as on the previous dates list.
The KS2 Choir have been invited to sing at Edgecumbs Christmas Fair on Saturday 27th November at 11am until 11.45 am. Please return your permission slips for this as soon as possible so that we can let the organisers know. Thank you.
I have attached a price list for the ‘Poppy Appeal’ items that are currently on sale on school.
Thursday 11th November- we will hold a whole school worship together to reflect at 11am. If the weather is fine, we will be outside, so please make sure that the children have their coats.
Friday 12th November- ‘World Kindness Day’-the children need to wear something yellow. This will be a non-uniform day. Our ‘Morning Meetings’ in school will reflect on the theme of kindness which is one of our THINK values.
Have a great weekend.
Take care
Kim Huggett
