Dear Parent/Carer,


The Jewish New Year festival of Rosh Hashanah begins on Sunday evening and lasts until Tuesday evening.  We wish a joyous celebration to our families who are marking this festival next week.


Queen Elizabeth II Book

Each child will have been given a book today to commemorate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee earlier this year.  Now it will also serve as a memory of the Queen and her life following her sad passing.


PTA Christmas Cards

Welcome back to this lovely fundraiser as the PTA is in the process of organising that each child creates their own Christmas card design in school.  Parents will be able to purchase as many cards as they like with their child’s design on.  Proofs and order forms will be sent out over the next few weeks.


PTA Cake Sale Friday 23rd September in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support

Thank you to all of you who donated cakes for this event and we look forward to seeing you later on today, when we all buy some lovely Friday cakes for this worthy cause.  Cakes will be for sale near the school entrance from 3.30pm.


Reception Reading Afternoon Friday 30th September, 2.30pm start, Key Stage 2 Hall

We’re looking forward to welcoming our new Reception parents and carers to our Reading Afternoon on Friday.  This is to give you information on how we teach reading in school and ways that you can help at home with your child’s reading.  The meeting will take place in the Key Stage 2 Hall.  Please come to the Key Stage 2 gate as you can access the Hall that way.  There will be signs to direct you.  The PTA will be serving teas and coffees in the Hall from 2.20pm and there will also be preloved uniform available for an optional donation.


Wishing you all a pleasant weekend.


Best wishes,


Rachel Mitchell, Headteacher
