Years 1 & 2 Weekly Newsletters
Dear Parents/Carers 15th February 2019
Thank you for your generous donations to ‘Pitch in a Pound’, raising much needed funds for the North Devon Hospice. Once we have counted the coins we will put the total on our website.
In class, we have been linking multiplication and division in maths. In English, we have been looking at headings and sub-headings in different texts and using these in our own writing. Mr Quilter’s class clay planets are looking great!
HEALTH AND SAFETY NOTICE – School Grounds Closed – 15th to 25th February
Please note the school grounds will be closed to the public from the end of school on Friday, 15th February, through the half term week, for essential maintenance work to be carried out.
It will be reopened, ready for our return to school, on Monday, 25th February.
Space Odyssey – Wednesday, 27th February
We are really looking forward to visiting the space dome for the Space Odyssey experience after half term. It will really bring the planets and stars down to our level for us to explore them in more detail. Thank you for making your payments to help cover the cost of this brilliant event.
Public Health England (PHE) – Dental Health Survey – Thursday, 28th February
PHE have sent requests to parents of 5 year old children to allow their child to be part of its national survey. PHE are collecting information about whether dental health is improving in this age group, to allow them to compare different areas of the country and to plan improvements in the dental health services. The examination will be carried out in school with staff members present and is purely a survey with no treatment being involved. If you have received a letter please could you return this to your class teacher whether you are giving or withdrawing your permission.
World Book Day – Thursday, 7th March – Dress as your favourite book character
To celebrate World Book Day 2019 we would like the children to come to school dressed as their favourite book character and bring the book to school to share with their friends. During the day we will be taking part in various fun activities.
Non-Uniform Day – Red Nose Day – Friday, 15th March
The School Council have organised a non-uniform day to celebrate Red Nose Day 2019. They will be selling Red Noses in classrooms from Monday, 11th to Friday, 15th March at £1.25 each.
After half term we will be making rockets and would be grateful for any junk modelling items suitable for making our crafts. Please hand these to your class teacher.
We have had several pieces of uniform and PE kit being mixed up or lost recently. Please could we ask you to ensure all of your child’s clothing is clearly labelled with their name to help them locate their own possessions.
Lunch menu for next week is ‘Week Three”.
