Dear Parents/Carers,


We are entering into a cold and blustery weekend, where I have even heard the word SNOW! It is hard to believe that it is the 1st December next week and the beginning of the Christmas period! As I am sure some of you are aware from your children’s costume letters, we are once again recording a whole school Christmas video which will be available to view privately on Vimeo, and will be password protected.


Advent Calendar

Look out on 1st December (next Wednesday) for our ‘12 Makaton Days of Christmas’.  There will be a different Christmas image every day for you and your children to learn in Makaton sign language. Each day, the calendar door will be available on the school website


Christingle Assembly

To mark the start of Advent on the 29th November, Year 6 have created an assembly about Christingle and made their own Christingles for you to see, with instructions on how to make your own.


Children in Need

We’ve put together a video of pupils arriving for last Friday’s Children in Need Day.  This is for private viewing by Lakeside families only.  Here’s the link: Please enjoy!


The PTA’s AGM will be held on Monday 29th November via Zoom.  The meeting details are:

****Road Safety outside school****

We urge families to use the pavements outside school during drop-off and collection and not to walk in the road.  Although the road is closed to general traffic at certain times, local residents are exempt and may use the road during these times.  It is essential for your safety, therefore, that you do not walk on the road, even when there is no traffic.  It is also vital that children learn that the only safe place to walk is on the pavement, as most roads are busy and dangerous.  Thank you.
