Non-Uniform Day Monday 5th December – donations requested
On Monday 5th December we are kindly asking for voluntary donations of chocolate (please remember we are a nut free school) and bottles (from water to wine) in return for a non- uniform day. Please give your donations to your school teacher or place on the trolleys by the school office. We value any donation you can make – thank you.
Belgrade Theatre Trip to the Panto, Tuesday 6th December
Following the production of Jack and the Beanstalk, we expect to arrive back at school around 1pm for a late lunch. Our kitchen staff will be providing a packed lunch for the children who would normally have a cooked lunch however, you are welcome to send in your own packed lunch if you prefer; please just let us know. Please could all children bring in a snack for the interval together with their water bottles.
KS2 Carol Service at St Nicholas Church, Thursday 8th December 7pm
Rehearsals for the carol service are in full swing and we are looking forward to seeing you all next Thursday for what promises to be a fabulously festive evening! Doors will open at 6.45pm so please do not arrive any earlier than this. I have uploaded the song lyrics onto the class Padlets and would very much appreciate your support in helping the children practise these at home - it really does make a difference to the quality of the performance.
We are asking the children in Years 4, 5 & 6 to wear something festive for the concert (Christmas jumper/ dress/ shirt etc.) and encouraging the audience to do the same! Year 3 children will be wearing nativity costumes.
We would like all the children in KS2 to attend this event, but please do let me know before Monday 5th December if they are unable to be there so that I can plan accordingly. Many thanks, Mrs Braley

VOLUNTEERS STILL NEEDED
We kindly ask for volunteers to give up 30 minutes of their time to help run the fair’s stalls. We hope as many of our school community can sign up to help at this event as possible so that everyone gets a chance to enjoy the fair as well.
We currently do not have enough helpers to run all the stalls at this event.
Please see the links below for our digital sign-up sheets.

Online Safety – IMPORTANT!
We are becoming increasingly concerned at the growing number of children who have access to social media accounts and who are actively posting content that is visible to anyone, without their parents’ consent or knowledge. Some of the content we have been made aware of is either age-inappropriate, or identifies the child easily by what they say, their user name or even their school uniform. As we approach the holiday, which is potentially a time when children have more access to their devices, we would urge you to review your online safety settings and have a conversation with your child about keeping themselves safe. This is a message we continually give in school, but we do know that sometimes curiosity and peer pressure can encourage children to explore the online world without realising the possible dangers. For further advice and information please do take a look at the following websites:
In the event of school closure
