It has been a fairly straightforward week in school this week with everything running very smoothly which is always good. However, next week the pace really picks up as we have lots happening in school.
On Monday the ‘Book Fair’ begins. Every night until Thursday the book fair will be open after school in the main hall (we are also opening it on Wednesday lunchtime at 11.45am for nursery parents). There will be a wide variety of books to select from and your children will already know what is there as they are viewing the books today. This is a good opportunity for you to purchase some early Christmas presents. As a school we do get a percentage of the profits to use on books for the school so remember, the more you spend the more the school will benefit.
On Wednesday the school photographer will be in school to take individual photographs. This also includes family groups within the school so you may want to make sure that your children look ‘extra smart’ on that day because it will be a whole year before they get the opportunity to have an individual picture taken in school again.
On Friday we are holding our annual ‘Harvest Festival’ coffee morning. I have already sent out details about this in a couple of newsletters but we hold this so we can donate money to a worthy cause. There are a couple of charities that we are considering this year so I will let you know on the day which one the school has decided to support. As well as enjoying a drink and a cake with your child the classes will also be singing a couple of Harvest Festival songs to entertain you. Remember that you may start sending in your cake donations from Wednesday, 30th September and if you are sending them in a container you would like returned to you please remember to put label it with your name. We have always had lots of donations in the past and I am sure that this year will be no different.
The football team also have their first match against Oakmere on Monday so let us hope that they will be successful. With all that is going on in school it will be next Friday before we know it. I look forward to seeing many of you at the Harvest Festival next week.
