I am going to have to start my blog this week with a little moan because it has come to my attention that too many children are not bringing their PE kit into school. PE is a compulsory part of the curriculum and unless we have a doctor’s note it is a legal requirement that children participate in the lessons. We do ask that children bring their PE kit to school on a Monday and take it home on a Friday so that if there has to be a change to the PE timetable it does not matter. KS2 children are also required to have outdoor PE kit with outdoor shoes and football boots so can you ensure that your child has these in school. In the past children have been allowed to borrow items from other children but we are now stopping this practice and if a child does not have their PE kit in school we will be contacting parents directly.
Whether or not we like to admit it Christmas is fast approaching. From Monday we will have the post box out so that if children want to post Christmas cards they can do. To make it easier for them to be delivered I would ask that both the class and the name of the child is written on the envelope. The post box will be situated at the entrance the children walk through in the morning and the cards will be delivered to the classes by the Year 6.
There has been a lot of hustle and bustle in school today as preparations for the Frost Fayre have gathered pace so that everything is ready for Sunday. I would like to thank everyone who has already sent in donations for the event and all those who have given their time to help organise it. All we need now is for lots of people to attend on Sunday so that the event can be a real success. There is certainly going to be lots of things to do, eat and buy so I am sure that if you do attend it will be a most enjoyable occasion – I look forward to seeing all of you there.
