Dear Parents and Carers,
I have worn my big coat for the first time this week as it finally feels like the weather is turning colder after what has been predicted to be the warmest year on record. It is also a beautiful time of year, seeing the leaves change and the autumnal colours fill the trees. Sitting in my office, I have heard Foundation Stage and Year Two begin to rehearse their Nativity and Christmas performance this week. I always do my best not to watch any of it until the day of the performance, something I know many of you will be looking forward to.
Next week is Anti-bullying Week and we will join hundreds of other schools to highlight the importance of standing up to bullying. My assembly on Monday will launch the event and introduce the children to this year's theme - Make a Noise about Bullying! The important message to all children will be about speaking up if they are worried about bullying or they see something happening that they know is not right. Children can wear odd socks on Monday to support the work we will do altogether about this subject.
Children in Need Day
On Friday 17th November we will be supporting this year's Children in Need day. All children can wear their own clothes to school and there will be Pudsey biscuits on sale for children to enjoy at breaktime. We kindly ask for a one pound donation for the day and fifty pence for the biscuit. Every penny goes to this great charity and we share with the children how the money raised is used. Don't forget to 'BE SPOTACULAR' and wear something spotty if you have it.
We are now fully booked with grandparents lunches, with over 200 bookings made. We are very much looking forward to welcoming all of you over the next two weeks.
Have a lovely weekend everyone.
