Thankyou to all the parent and grandparent helpers who came with us to Candie Museum. The children really enjoyed the visit and the experience of visiting a museum, meeting people who work in a museum and looking at the old toys is very valuable. We are following up on this work in school, mainly in the Discovery Zone where we have some examples of old toys for the children to handle.
Next week we shall be continuing our work on old toys and the story ‘Dogger.’ We will then begin work on the Christmas Story.
Visit to the Church
We shall be visiting the church to watch Year 5’s Christmas Concert on Wednesday 13th December.
We will need some additional adult helpers to accompany us. If you are able to join us from 11am please let your class teacher know. We should be back at school by 12.15pm.
Please could all children bring in their costumes for the concert in by Monday 4th.
Well done to all the children with speaking parts who have already learned their lines. It would be really helpful if these could continue be rehearsed at home as this will make the children feel more confident when it comes to the performance.
The concert performance for parents will be at 2pm on Tuesday 12th December. As space is limited in the hall, two tickets per child will be sent home.
The Infant Christmas party will be on Thursday 14th December. On this day children can come to school in their party clothes but please can we ask that sensible shoes are worn. (no heeled shoes please)
A separate paper letter has been sent about food. As a reminder please could you provide the following foods (enough for 5-6 children)
Mrs Bramley’s class – sandwiches/rolls e.g. egg, ham, cheese, marmite, tuna (no nuts please)
Miss Horsepool’s class – sausage rolls, pizza slices, cocktail sausages, mini cheeses
Mrs Boscher’s class – small cakes and chocolate biscuits
Please bring in food on the morning of the party. School will provide juice, crisps and fruit.
If you would be able to come into school to help wrap ‘gifts’ for the children please speak to your class teacher. This could be at any time next week.
Thank you for your continued support
