***Outdoor Learning Day Important Information***

We are now a week away from Outdoor Learning Day which takes place next Monday 20th May.  Thank you to all the parents and carers who have already sent in reply slips and money.  

The reply slip on the form required you to tick either a packed lunched from school or a packed lunch from home, on some forms that we have received no information with regards to lunch.

We need to know asap whether your child is having a lunch from the school kitchen as they need to order the correct amount of food to ensure that there is enough for the packed lunches.  Therefore we will send a reply slip out today with the Reception and KS1 children which needs to be returned by Wednesday 15th May at the very latest.

Kind regards

Easter Assembly

Yesterday morning Father Anthony and Deacon David joined the children to celebrate their Easter Assembly.  This year Mrs Hughes-Harvey chose one of our favourite hymns ‘Servant King’ to base our Easter Assembly around, each of the Key Stage 2 classes took one verse of the hymn and focused on the meaning creating drama, dance and art work based work.  Then Reception and KS1 children celebrated the joy of new life at Easter time with their artwork egg creations, poetry and song; finishing off with a parade of their wonderful Easter Bonnets and Hats which were made at home.

We decided not to invite parents this time, as children would miss out on experiencing the complete assembly and the messages it contains, as we cannot fit all the children plus parents together in our hall.

Therefore, a video has been made for you to view the assembly and listen to the beautiful singing.  Currently, it is too large to upload to the school website.  I will make it into two smaller videos which I hope to upload tomorrow so please check the school website.

***Mini Vinnies Pyjama Day – Friday 12th April 2019***

On Friday 12th April our Mini Vinnies have organised a pyjama day to raise money for their new project which is India Student Sponsorship.

VIDYA JYOTHI EDUCATION SCHEME

This scheme helps children to remain in school to receive basic education which costs £15 a year.  It pays for 85% of the annual cost for a child’s education in school.

A very important cause which the children have chosen to raise money for.  Please help support them!

Year 3/4 football tournament

A huge well done to the children who represented the school for this event.  In their league they won 3 games and lost 1, and qualified for the semi finals.  They got beat 2-0 in the semi final, but they went out with their heads held high, such a fantastic achievement.  The school is very proud of you all.  Thank you to Mrs Rutter for her continuous coaching.

**Morning Drop Off**

Breakfast Club will be taking advantage of the weather and using the playground for some of their activities.  Please be aware therefore that you will not be able to gain access to the playground until 8.45am as gates will be locked until this time.  Can I please remind children that should they arrive at school before this time, they should wait sensibly at the KS2 gate. 

Thank you for your co-operation.

FAREWELL to Mrs Harris

We are very sad to inform you that Mrs Lara Harris will be leaving us for ventures new at the end of this week.

Lara has been a member of our SSPP family for the last 3 years and her wonderful manner and personality have made her a great favourite with pupils, parents and staff alike both in class and at lunchtimes.  She has been a valued colleague and friend to us all.

Lara has made the decision to return to working in a nursery and we wish her the very best of luck.   We will all miss you Mrs Harris!
