Friday 9th March

The children had a wonderful time today, celebrating World Book Day (a little later than originally planned!)  The Year R children looked wonderful dressed as book characters and they were thrilled to talk about their costumes in assembly today.

The children in Key Stage 1 have enjoyed exploring poetry, sharing their own favourite poems, with interesting objects to illustrate their poems, and using poetry as a theme for their learning. Each child has received their World Book Day book token, which they can spend right up until 25th March.

Wednesday 21st February

We hope you all enjoyed the half term break.

We are looking forward to the signs of spring but we are aware that the forecast is for a cold spell next week. Please read our adverse weather policy which is posted for you here _Adverse Weather Policy .pdf . We do all we can to keep the school open at all times but if a decision was made to close the school at any time a message would be posted on the front page of this website. We would ask you to check before leaving school in adverse weather.


Please see some ideas on healthy snacks for children from Surrey CC

Healthier snacking for children

 

 

How much sugar is in a child’s snack?

 

Do you really know how much sugar is in the average child's snack? Children across England are consuming nearly three times their daily recommended amount of sugar with half of this sugar coming from snacks and sugary drinks. Too much sugar can lead to harmful fat building up, which can develop into serious health issues as well as tooth decay. But some small changes to their diet can make a big difference.

 

Alternative snacks

Try healthier options by swapping biscuits, sweets and crisps for healthier snacks like fruit and vegetables, fruited malt loaf, fromage frais, popcorn, houmous or rice cakes. Look out for the Change4Life signs at selected supermarkets to find healthier options and follow this simple tip ‘100 calorie snacks, two a day max.’

 

Money-off vouchers and apps

There are money-off vouchers for healthy snacks when you sign up to the Change4Life website and a “snack pack” guide to healthier eating. There are also several apps you can download such as the ‘Food Scanner’ app. By scanning a bar code you can see how many calories there are in food or drinks, as well as the sugar, salt and saturated fat content. The ‘Be Food Smart’ app also provides recommended calorie information per serving.

 

If you are concerned about a child’s weight and would like some advice, Alive ’N’ Kicking is a local service for children aged between five and nineteen years old. The programme is designed to enable children to enjoy a healthier lifestyle. For more information visit the Alive ‘N’ Kicking website.


Charity Donations

The three charities chosen by the children to benefit from your kind donations at the Christmas Performance have written to thank the school for their money. Each charity received a generous amount of £205.15 and are all extremely grateful to you and the children. 

Copies of their letters can be seen attached below.

Thank you


Safer Internet Day 2018 (Friday 9th February)

Today we have been exploring ways of keeping safe online with the theme 'Create, Connect, Share'. Each year group has taken part in activities which have helped them to think about who and how they connect with other people both online and offline and how to keep safe and happy. It would be great if you could continue this discussion at home by talking about what they have found out and how your child can stay safe online at home.

World Book Day - Thursday 1st March

Please look our for a Parent Mail today - Friday 9th February - with details on our World Book Day activities in school. 


Change 4 Life

Your child will be bringing home a leaflet about the 'Change 4 Life' Snack Challenge. It gives suggestions of how you and your family can make healthy choices about the snacks children eat. Click on the link below to find out more information.

Thank you for your help.


October 22nd 2017

We hope you all enjoy the half term break with your familes and friends. We hope you all have fun.

Do keep reading each day with your child as this will really help them to practise this important skill.

A reminder that school is closed for staff training on Monday 30th October.

Your child will have brought home their PE kit for half term. Children in KS1 will need joggers after half term as they will continue to take part in outdoor PE through the colder months. Please also check that trainers still fit.

A reminder that all children need a coat (with a hanging hook) in school everyday as we go outside in all weathers.

Please ensure that all items of uniform are named as precious teaching time is lost trying to unite clothing with owners!

We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday 31st October. Poppies will be on sale in school from 1st - 8th November.If you would like to your child to have a Poppy to wear they should  bring their  donations in a clearly marked envelope with their name and stating POPPY DONATION.


October 19th 2017 Harvest Festival

Thank you so much for your very generous donations to the Harvest Festival. The children were thrilled to see all the different foods. The produce was collected this afternoon and will be used to help those families in the locality who would really benefit from your gifts.

Today our Harvest Assembly was a lovely opportunity to help the children realise how fortunate we are and how we are able to share the good things we have with others. All classes joined together to celebrate with songs, poems, a short play, a dance, and prayers. We hope the children will tell you all about the day.

We are very grateful to Mrs Marsh's father and the team who  collected the produce for delivery.  Waitrose in Bagshot also kindly donated the wholemeal bread for the chilldren to share and the satsumas for the play.


September 25th 2017
