Friday Bulletin & Diary Dates – 16th November 2018

16 November 2018

Dear Parents and Carers,

Thank you for supporting our Children in Need pyjama day. We had lots of fun and have managed to raise a fantastic £515 for Pudsey.

We celebrated Anti Bullying Week this week. The children took part in a range of activities focused on the theme of ‘Respect’. Next month, we are going to carry on explicitly learning about kindness by supporting the British Red Cross campaign ‘The Power of Kindness’. Essentially, this is an advent calendar made up of kind thoughts and deeds. Throughout December children will:

  • learn about the power of kindness
  • carry out kind acts
  • consider how they can be kind to themselves and others
  • learn about humanitarian acts such as coping, helping and welcoming others

If you would like to find out more, visit www.redcross.org.uk/education or on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram via #Powerofkindness and @BritishRedCross.

It was lovely to see so many of you in school this week. I hope you found parents’ evening informative; thank you for all your positive feedback. We organise two lots of consultation evenings over the school year but please remember you are welcome to make an appointment to see your child’s teacher whenever you need to.

We are fast approaching one of the busiest times in the year. Please do check this bulletin regularly for important dates for Christmas parties and performances.

Have a lovely weekend.
