Macmillan Coffee Morning. Thank you to everyone for their support with the Coffee Morning, we will let you know how much we raised next week.
Meeting for Reception Children Parents. Miss Race is looking forward to meeting the reception class parents on Monday 2nd October at 5pm. The purpose of the meeting is to explain the curriculum and approaches to reading/writing and is for parents only.
Kendal College Childcare Student. Anna Rudd, a Kendal College Student, will be helping in the Infant Class for two days a week starting next week. Some of you may remember Anna from her time here several years ago. We are sure she will enjoy her time with us and hopefully learn lots.
Junior Walk around the Village. Mrs Shaw is taking the juniors on a walk around the village next Friday morning, 6th October. An information sheet giving more details is included in the bag today. We would be very grateful if some parents would volunteer to come with us, please speak to a member of the junior team or Mrs Sharpe. Thank you.
School Photographs. All the children had their photographs taken last week; the proofs are enclosed in this week’s Friday Bag. Orders can be placed online this year by visiting www.picturemailorder.co.uk and using the username and password on your proof. You can if you wish still order through school, but will have to send cash with the order not cheques. All orders either online or through school need to be received by Friday 13th October at the very latest.
Parents’ Evening. If anyone still needs to book an appointment for parents’ evening next Monday 9th October, please ring school and we will try and find you a suitable time slot. Staff really value the opportunity to talk to parents on these evenings. The School Nurse will also be available between 3.30 and 4.30pm.
Junior Visit to Lancaster Maritime Museum. Mrs Shaw has organised for the junior children to visit the Maritime Museum in Lancaster on Friday 13th October for a Science Session. It is a morning session, but they won’t be back in time for lunch, so all juniors will need a packed lunch on this day. Please complete the slip at the end of the newsletter, giving permission for them to go and include the voluntary contribution of £8 per pupil to cover the cost of the bus and charge for the activity.
School Times. There seems to be some confusion regarding when school is responsible for your children. We would like to remind parents that school starts at 9am and finishes at 3.30pm and that children are your responsibility at all other times, especially when they are playing on the equipment outside. This does not apply to Morning Club children who are in our care from the time they are signed in.
Harvest Craft Afternoon
We are supporting the Bishop’s Harvest Appeal 2017 by having a craft afternoon on Tuesday 10th October for all pupils. Please could the children come to school dressed in Autumnal colours and we will be collecting money for ‘Tree Aid’. We ask for £1 per child or more to go to this very important and worthwhile cause.
Tree Aid works to create thriving, sustainable communities throughout the isolated and remote regions of Africa by:
- Gives vital food all year round, with trees that can survive droughts.
- Helps people earn an income for basic needs like food, education and health.
- Protects the environment using trees, land and water to protect and improve it.
- Defends people’s rights to the trees and land on which they rely for survival.
