A big thank you for the generous gifts you sent for our Cafod collection. We were very grateful and talked to the children about where your tins and packets are going and who they were going to help.
Thank you for all the parents who are donating to our Reception fund. It helped towards the cake making and food tasting this week. The children will be able to talk to you about one of the things we have bought with the money next week.
Next week we are going to visit the Memorial Park. The visit is to look at the changing seasons and the wonderful world God made. If it is raining we will re arrange the visit for another day.
This week we meet our Prayer Friends for the first time. We spent the afternoon finding out about them and having our photographs taken together. They then supported us on our first visit to Church as a class. Thank you Year 6 for looking after us and making us feel safe.
Reception pupils have now started to bring home a library book on Friday. This book is for sharing at home and will need to be returned by the following Friday, so that it can be exchanged for a new one.
We now also have a class ‘Prayer Bag’. This bag contains lots of things that you can use for a family prayer service at home. The bag will come home with one child on a Friday and needs to come back by the following Wednesday. The children are all really excited to be the one chosen to bring the bag home.
Thank you to all the parents who attended the Reading/Writing evening, we hope that you found it useful. We will be providing the packs from the evening to those parents who were unable to attend this week.
We have to apologise for a typing error on our newsletter. The phonics/writing evening is the 27th September not October, as stated in ‘Dates for your diary’.
We have started to send home phonics worksheets with your child. We would like to say a big thank you to all who have supported their child to complete them and return them to school. More information will be shared about these on our writing evening. Thank you.
Hope the week is going well. Just a quick reminder, after the break the Reception children will be left at the school gate to walk around by themselves. Reception staff will be on the playground and at the gate to make sure they are ok. We are looking forward to the start of the final term on Monday.
