24th Sept 2018
Dear Reception class.
The weather has certainly changed over the weekend!
Please think about keeping wellies at school from now. They should be kept on the boot rack outside the lower primary classroom, not in your cubby please as they will be collecting lots of mud and dirt soon.
Flu vaccinations will take place first thing tomorrow morning. I’m sure you have all returned your forms to Joy.
Harvest Festival in the local church will be on Wednesday morning. It is tradition for us to walk, I hope the weather will be fine! Your parents are invited to take part in the service. Remember to bring a donation for the local foodbank. These can be dropped off at school before Wednesday. Items most useful are tinned vegetables/beans and dried food such as pasta. Please wear smart school uniform, Kilt or smart trousers always look lovely, but as you are officially still permitted to be in summer uniform, Bermuda shorts will be fine too.
Thank you to those who have signed up for the snack rota. I have put it on the wall outside the cubby/locker room.
Please remember sports kit (for Thursdays) and two pairs of shoes needed at school every day.
See you tomorrow.
