Nursery New Year Party

Friday 26th January 2018 3:30-4:15

Tickets £2.50 per child All nursery children are invited to our New Year Party.

This will be run by an ASBSA volunteer who teaches music and movement to children as part of the Moojangles team. The party will involve songs, rhymes, props and puppets and will take place in the school hall directly after afternoon nursery 3:30-4:15pm.

Since the party is directly after nursery for the afternoon children, we would ask that all children attending the party wear school uniform.

Did you know that the government gives additional funding to schools for those children entitled to free school meals?

Schools use this money to obtain additional staff, resources and services to help improve the quality of education for those children.

Crazy Sock Day Tuesday 19th December 2017

Dear parents and carers,

 To encourage and celebrate a love of reading, Key Stage 1 and Reception will be joining KS2 in holding a crazy sock day. This day is for all children who have read 50 times (25 times for Ash and Elm) and recorded this in their green reading record.  Your class teacher will count books brought home from school. You do not need to do anything differently just continue to listen to your child read (in Reception this may be sharing a book) and continue to record this in the green home reading record book.

Crazy sock day will be held on Tuesday 19th December 2017. If your child has read 50 times or in Ash and Elm 25 times, by Tuesday 19th December, then they can come to school wearing some crazy socks along with their school uniform. 

If you have any questions please contact Miss Hayter or Mrs Collingwood. 

Thank you for your help in this. 

He called you to salvation when we told you the Good News; now you can share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Thessalonians 2:14
