Dear Parents and Carers,
Over the next two weeks we have Parents Evenings on Wednesday 7th November, Tuesday 13th November and Thursday 15th November. Please check that you have been sent a time to come. These meetings are an essential part of your children’s education, I hope you find them useful.
Book Fair – Monday 12th –Thursday 15th November
Please visit the Book Fair during parents evenings or at the start or end of each day. It will be open from 8.30-9.30am then from 3.30-4.00pm. Getting a book or two from the Book Fair is a great way to encourage your children to read at home, and raises money for the school to buy more books for the children to use. Please support it if you can, it’s another way that we can help the children develop a life-long love of reading.
Please could anyone bringing a dog at the start or the end of the day keep them by the old front door at the top of the school and not take them down the side path.
PTFA meeting – Ye Old Two Brewers, Thursday 8th November at 7.30pm
Please come along for a nice chat with other parents, and to support the PTFA in their projects for the good of all the children. Everyone welcome!
Children in Need – Friday 16th November
The children can come in non-uniform on this day, wearing something yellow and/or spotty if they can. Each child should be a donation of £1 or more which we will send to Children in Need.
Picking up from School
If you need to pick up children early please come at 3.25pm. Getting children out earlier than that is disruptive to the classes.
School Reading Challenge – One Thousand Books in One Hundred Days – 1st November 2018 – 8th February 2019
The children have made a great start to our challenge with 105 books completed in the first week. Keep encouraging, enjoying and recording their reading please.

Christmas Shoebox appeal
Please return shoeboxes for the Rotary Club appeal by Tuesday 13th November. This is a new date, extended by a week. Thank you very much to all of you who have already put together shoeboxes for the children.
