Weekly News for Families – Friday 14th May 2021

Dear Parents & Carers,
It has been another busy week in school with lots of exciting report writing in Year 3-4 about the United Kingdom, Newspaper Reports in Early Years and Key Stage 1, a delivery of mud for our mud kitchen (thanks to the persuasive letters from Year 5 to Dandara Homes) and a wellbeing day for our Year 6 children with Chichester Festival Theatre! We hope you have heard all about this at home too. 
Parking Safely
Unfortunately we have had various vehicles, including taxis, come in to our school car park during drop off and collection times. Even though this week we put signs up, this has been ignored and it has left us with no option but to close the gates so that we can ensure everyone is safe at these times. Those classes that were using the car park entrance will now join the other classes through the single gate next to Early Years. Thank you for your co operation with this. 
North End Road is a particularly busy road and we have a lollipop lady on duty to help see families safely across at the start and end of each day. It is worrying to see families crossing the road between parked cars and not using the lollipop crossing. Please make sure that everyone crosses in the correct place. Thank you 
The zig zag lines and the double yellow lines adjacent to our school are there to protect families who are walking on the pavements. Please make sure you do not park on these. 
PSHE (Personal Social and Health Education) and RSE (Relationships and Sex Education) consultation. 
Last week, I attached information leaflets to the Weekly News regarding our school curriculum.  These documents are now also on our website on the PSHE curriculum page. If you have any questions or queries then please email us using the office2@yaptonschool.org email address. 
Outdoor Classroom Day – Thursday 20th May 2021
Just a reminder that we will are all looking forward to taking our learning outside of the classroom on this day. Please make sure that your child is dressed in practical clothing (suitable for whatever the weather may be!). Classes are currently deciding how to spend their £56 which was kindly raised by, all of you, when you purchased tickets for the Rainbow Christmas Hampers. There has been talk of water trays and other exciting pieces of equipment. 
Take care and have a wonderful weekend
We look forward to seeing you on Monday
Kim Huggett
