Dear Parents / Carers,

Christmas is always an exciting time in a primary school, and although this year is different, the usual excitement and anticipation is starting to be felt here at school. Staff have enjoyed dressing up (sometimes too much!) for the Advent calendar we have made for the children, and next week we start on our… (No! I mustn’t give it away – you’ll have to wait and see!).

Though the weather is much colder than it has been, these crisp, frosty days are much more pleasant than rain – I hope that it continues into the weekend and Inset Day so that you can all enjoy some time outside, but remember to wrap up warm!

Staff Advent Calendar

You will know by now that Christmas at Lakeside is NOT cancelled. We are planning a lovely treat for children, parents, carers and all other relatives and friends. If you haven’t seen it already, check out the Christmas is Coming trailer on the web site:

Also, from Tuesday 1st December, see the school web site for a daily Advent ‘door’ to open. There will be a new door every day up to and including December 18th, each with messages from staff right across the school.

Videos can be found by going to the school web site: then Children drop down list then Lakeside Videos.

Food Hamper Appeal

Mrs Sharon Vanstone is co-ordinating a Christmas Food Hamper Appeal. Please see the letter for details but please also note that donations must be brought in next week, by Friday 4th December. Children will be very much involved in putting the hampers together, and we want as many as possible from each class. Donations should be taken by your child to their classroom. Thank you in advance for your generosity. Please see attached letter for details.

***IMPORTANT: Cold weather***

As the weather gets increasingly colder, please can we remind parents and carers to ensure that children are wearing plenty of warm layers to school, as classroom windows have to be kept open during the school day.

This Monday: INSET DAY: 30th November

Please remember that this Monday (Monday 30th November) is an INSET day for staff training.

Have a safe and relaxing weekend,

Rachel Mitchell
