This week’s Learning Behaviour: ‘I help others to learn’

 

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

Macmillan Coffee Morning

 

Please remember that this year’s Macmillan Coffee Morning and Cake Sale will is taking place this Friday, 29th September. Please do support this worthy cause by sending in cakes and spending money on Friday.

 

Harvest Food

 

A little reminder about the food we are hoping to collect for Blackburn Foodbank for this year as part of our Harvest celebrations. Blackburn Foodbank have asked us if we could consider providing items from the following ‘most needed’ list:

 

  • Tinned soup
  • Tinned tomatoes
  • Tinned vegetables
  • Tinned fruit
  • Tinned fish
  • Tinned custard

 

  • Tinned meat
  • Tinned rice pudding

 

 

 

Donations of food can be placed in the green box in the main entrance or just sent in with your child. Our Harvest Festival service will be taking place on Wednesday 4th October and you are very welcome to come along and join us as we say a big ‘thank you’ to God for providing us with the food we all enjoy.

 

Key Stage 1 door

 

Another gentle reminder to parents about the area around the Key Stage 1 door – please keep this area free in the mornings – members of staff are finding it a little bit difficult bring the children in at the start of the day as this area has become a little congested. Also, all infant children should line up on the playground in the mornings and enter school in one line. Thank you for your help in this.

 

Infant Milk

 

Parents of children in Woodpeckers, Kingfishers or Swallows - milk money is now due. If you haven’t done so already, please send £12 (this cost is for the whole school year) in an envelope, clearly marked with your child’s name. Parents of children in Robins only need to start paying for their milk in the term when they celebrate their 5th birthday. If your child does not like milk they will be given a drink of water in class – please do not send in any drinks with your child.

 

 

Muharram

 

If you would like your Year 5 or Year 6 child to fast any day this week for Muharram, please send in a letter giving your permission for your child to fast. Thank you for your help in this.

 

You’ve Been Spotted!

 

Well done to the following children who have been spotted displaying one of our Christian Bible Values:

 

Harry McCaw (Kestrels) – Endurance Haris Afzal (Doves) – Compassion

 

Sana Pathan (Kestrels) - Hope Natan Altman (Doves) – Compassion

Owls

95.4%

 

Overall attendance for the week: 96.4%
