This week’s Learning Behaviour: ‘I persevere – I keep going, even if it’s difficult’

 

Dear Parents and Carers,       

 

Fab Friday!

 

Exciting news – after Easter, Mrs Richardson in the kitchen will be introducing ‘Fab Friday’ – this is an opportunity for children who don’t normally stay for school dinners to join their friends in enjoying some of their favourite meals (such as fish and chips, nuggets and wedges and other particularly popular meals).

 

Fab Friday will take place every Friday and parents will need to book a meal a week in advance. After your child has had the lunch you will need to pay using SchoolMoney, our online payment system. A Fab Friday meal will cost £2.20, the usual cost of a school meal.

 

Please note that Infant children and junior children who normally stay for school meals will automatically receive a Fab Friday meal – no further action is needed for these children. More details to follow!

 

Class Assemblies

 

Thank you to all the parents, carers and relatives who came to support the Kingfishers’ class as they led our whole school assembly last week - it was great to see so many of you here. The children took as their theme the very important issue of Internet safety and reminded us all about the importance of being SMART when using the Internet:

 

S:

SAFE

Keep safe by being careful not to give out personal information to people you chat to online

M:

MEETING

Meeting someone you have only been in touch with online can be dangerous. Only do so with your parents’ or carers’ permission and only when they can be there too.

A:

ACCEPTING

Accepting emails from people you don’t know can lead to problems – they may contain viruses or nasty messages.

R:

RELIABLE

Information you find on the Internet may not be true, or someone may be lying about who they are.

T:

TELL

Tell your parent, carer or a trusted adult if someone or something makes you feel uncomfortable or worried, or if you know that someone is being bullied online.

 

The next class assembly will be led by the Woodpeckers’ class and will be taking place on Wednesday 27th March at 8.45am. Parents and carers are very welcome to come along and watch.

Red Nose Day – Friday 15th March

 

Thank you for supporting our fundraising efforts for Red Nose Day last Friday. Altogether £207 was raised for this very worthy cause.
