21st Oct Newsletter 14

Dear Parents,

It was lovely to see so many of you at our recent parents evenings. The children have settled well, this term and are producing a great deal of work, at a standard to be proud of. Over the course of this half we have held our Harvest Celebration, Friendship Week, as well as a range of exciting curriculum activities including Brick Lab in Y2, Roman Day Y4, the High Sherrif also visited Y4, dinosaur Workshop Y3 and these children will be visiting the Natural History Museum in London later this week.

Along with this letter is a diary containing key dates for the second half of this term.

Operation Christmas Child
Once again we are participating in the Operation Christmas Child shoe box appeal. Please could any shoeboxes be brought into school by Monday 3rd November as they will be collected in order to begin the journey to the children so that the gifts will arrive in time for Christmas.
Many thanks

Value for Half-Term
Our value for this half term will be Courage. Over the course of the coming weeks we will be looking at courage in its many guises. From daily, small acts of courage to stories of immense bravery in the light of adversity. We will explore the courage needed to overcome difficulties in our daily lives, and finally nearer to the end of term we will explore how the theme of courage is demonstrated through the Christmas story.

Head Lice
I wish to inform you that there have been one or two cases of head lice. We ask that parents be extra vigilant and check their children’s hair regularly. The treatment that is recommended by the school nurse is wet combing. Hair should be washed first and then plenty of conditioner applied. Without washing off the conditioner, comb the hair from root to tip with a detection comb. Continue combing until the comb comes through lice free. This may take 10 minutes. This treatment should be repeated every 3 to 4 days for 2 weeks in order to remove newly hatched lice.

As always if you have any concerns regarding your child please do not hesitate in contacting your child’s class teacher in the first instance.

Yours sincerely

L.Birch
