Dear Parents, 

Parent Workshop
Parents of Reception  children are invited to a special phonics workshop at 9am on Thursday morning. Come and see how we teach your children to read and get some free resources to use at home. It will be in the dining hall with tea and toast!

The Gift
This is an exciting course which will give you the chance to find out more about your faith with other people in small groups and discuss questions together. It will be running for another 6 weeks on Thursday evenings at 6pm in church. All welcome. Find out more at http://www.thegiftofthespirit.org/

Class Blogs
The new class blogs are up and running with photos and reports from class activities. Have a look at the links on the school website. Please leave a comment as the children (and teachers!) love reading them.

Reading Books
Some of our library books and home reading books are not being well looked after at home. Please make sure your children protect their books in their book bags and take good care of them. There will be a charge made if a book is badly damaged.

Lunch Boxes
Well done to our packed lunch children for some very healthy lunchboxes this week. Keep up the good work.

Family Leaning
Reception class parents are invited to family learning on Tuesday at 1pm in the Year 6C classroom. See Mrs Brookes for more details.

House Points
The children have got off to a great start earning house points for good work and good manners. Here are the scores so far:

Abraham      397             Noah  424             Moses            445           Jacob   463

Well done to Jacob house in the lead so far.

 PE Kits
Please make sure your children have their PE kit in school on Mondays, Thursday and Fridays. No PE kit means no Golden Stamp!

 Please write names on children’s jumpers and sweatshirts!

Book Bench
Our book bench has arrived back in school after spending the summer at Millennium Point. Pop in and have a look at  it in the garden.

 Parent workshop – Play
Our new family support worker, Jennifer, will be running a workshop with lots of ideas for play activities for you to do with your children at home. It will be next Wednesday afternoon in the Community Room (through the nursery car park)
The work shop is aimed at parents of younger children – Nursery, Reception and Year 1

 Attendance
Our whole school attendance for this week is 99.1% – fantastic!  One class got 100% so they will be in for a Friday surprise next week. For September so far attendance  is 96.3%.

Mass
Next Wednesday there will be Mass for Years 1,3 and 5 and will be led by Year 5. Parents are warmly invited to come and join the children in church at 9.15am

School Fund
We ask every child to bring 50p each week for school fund. All of the money goes towards paying for our school trips. If parents would prefer to pay for the half term, the cost is £3.50.
