Thank you so much for all the beautiful flowers that provided such a good way to help  the children  understand that like the flowers we are all unique and beautiful.

We hope you will continue to discuss this theme at home and maybe enjoy the Chelsea Flower Show too!



Monday 22nd May

Children in Year 1 and Year 2 are thinking about 'Good to be me' in Assembly and we have been celebrating our uniqueness through stories and discussion.

We have asked the children to bring in one flower (if possible) to Assembly tomorrow, Tuesday 23rd May. If this is possible  - that would be wonderful.

Thank you for your help.

Tuesday  4th April

We hope you have been enjoying the fine weather over the weekend. Just a few holiday requests:

Reception children love to take part in junk modelling activities and their thirst for materials continues! Please do save any   cereal, stockcube, toothpaste or other small boxes or kitchen roll tubes as these are great materials for this activity. In addtion if you have any ribbons, buttons or anything that you no longer need that would add to their creations, that would be wonderful. Please bring any items to the office or give them directly to Miss Humphrey in Diamond class. We would love a steady stream of items during the summer term. Thank you for helping us.

The children brought their PE kits home at the end of term. Please check that their PE footwear still fits! If you are purchasing new PE kit please note the information sent in the recent parent mail. We would be grateful if you would purchase trainers ideally with velcro fastenings once plimsolls have been outgrown.

Do keep reading with your child every day  at home during the holiday  This will really help the children to continue to develop this important skill and be ready for the learning in the term ahead.  

 


Tuesday 14th March

Our school now has a potentially life-saving piece of equipment - a brand new defibrillator, generously donated by the Dove family.  As you can imagine we are are hugely appreciative of this thoughful gift.      

This month we were delighted to learn that Mrs Corderley and her wonderful team in the school kitchen had achieved a Food Hygiene Rating of '5', the highest rating awarded by the Food Standards Agency.

With the Easter break fast approaching, you may be interested in children's activities organised by the Surrey Heath and Chertsey Museums.  For more information, please refer to the attachments at the foot of this page.


Saturday 25th February

Parent Questionnaire: Many thanks  for returning the Parent Questionnaire that was sent out last Tuesday. We are keen to hear from you and if you haven't yet responded we hope you will give us your feedback. The closing date is this coming Wednesday March 1st.

During the coming week we will be talking to the children about Shrove Tuesday and St David's Day. We hope you will help the children to find out more at home.

On Friday 3rd we will be celebrating World Book Day. Please note the information that was sent via Parent Mail to Reception and KS1 for the relevant arrangements for each year group. We hope you will use this opportunity to celebrate books with your child. Each child will also receive a World Book Day token worth £1 which can be exchanged in many bookshops. This is a great opportunity to further develop your child's enthusiasm for reading. On Friday each of the Year 1 and Year 2 classes will take part in a workshop led by the Freshwater Theatre Company. The workshops will be based on the Rainbow Fish stories. These are ideal books for reading and discussion in KS1 and are available on Amazon or bookshops.


Saturday 18th February

We hope that you have all enjoyed the half term break. We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday 21st February  (Monday 20th February is an Inset Day and school will be closed.)

We are grateful to Surrey County Council for funding this necessary project.Thank you for your patience during the project - all entrance gates will now be open as normal from Tuesday 21st.

Many thanks to the Northcote/Taylor family who have kindly made, donated and sited the bird nesting boxes in the woodland area.

The children were very excited to hear that Tim Peake's Soyuz capsule is now on display at the Science Museum!! The museum would make an interesting visit for many reasons. Please follow this link to find out more.

Wednesday 8th February

Today in Assembly we talked to the children about the importance of effective handwashing and key times when this is important - eg before eating, after visiting the toilet.

Attached is a link to an NHS leaflet that you might find helpful when you are explaining good handwashing techiniques at home.

http://www.nhs.uk/Livewell/homehygiene/Pages/how-to-wash-your-hands-properly.aspx

We do hope you will reinforce this message  especially at this time of year when a number of children are absent from school with virus infections etc.

A reminder: If you child has been been unwell with sickness or diarrhoea they should not return until at least 48 hours after the last episode. Please adhere to this request to stop infections spreading in school.
