This week’s Learning Behaviour: ‘I keep my table and classroom tidy’

 

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

Macmillan Coffee Morning

 

It’s that time of the year again! This year’s Macmillan Coffee Morning and Cake Sale will be taking place on Friday, 28th September. As you have done so generously in previous years, please do support this worthy cause by sending in cakes and spending money on that day. Macmillan is a cause close to our hearts following the sad losses of two former members of staff, Mrs Rukhsana Solkar and Mrs Rachel Heyes, to cancer in recent years.

 

English Conversation Classes

 

The classes that ran last year are running again this year. They will be re-starting on Tuesday 25th September, 1.30 – 2.30pm, in the community room. Feel free to pop in for a chat!

 

School Website

 

New parents may not be aware of our school website which can be found at: www.stmatthewsblackburn.com

SchoolMoney Drop-In Sessions

 

We are delighted that so many people are now using SchoolMoney, our online payment system. However, there might be some parents who are still not sure how to get started or who are not very confident when using SchoolMoney. To help these parents, Mrs Rhodes and Mrs Patel will be running some drop-in sessions this Thursday at 8.45 – 9.15am and 2.15 – 2.45pm for any parents who would like some help with this. There is no need to book, just turn up at those times this Thursday.

 

Seat Belts

 

Members of staff from Brunel Nursery and St. Matthew’s have noticed that several children are not wearing their seat belts in the car. Not only is it the law to do this, it could potentially save your child’s life. Please make sure your child wears their seat belt during every car trip.

 

Attendance

 

Each week I let parents know the attendance of each class in school, as well as the overall school attendance figure. High levels of attendance are vital for your child to make the progress they are capable of.

 

Last week’s attendance was as follows:

 

Robins - Blue

97.7%

 

Doves

90.9%

 

Overall attendance for the week: 95.8%

Robins – Green

98.5

 

Owls

94.3%

 

Woodpeckers

88.7%

 

Kestrels

97.6%

 

Overall attendance for the year to date: 95.8%

Kingfishers

97.8%

 

Hawks

97.9%
