Welcome to week four of term two! Can you believe we are almost half way through the term?
And so the week we have all been waiting for has finally arrived…performance week! The children have worked incredibly hard and have put everything they have in to rehearsing and perfecting their role in preparation for Wednesday. As the email stated, the children must be collected from school at 12.30 PM (we will still have lunch at school before leaving). They must be at the Trinity Theatre for 1.30 ready for our technical and dress rehearsal. We ask they bring a packed tea to eat before our show, which kicks off at 7pm. We will not know the running order until the night. The children will be expected to stay with myself and the chaperones from the moment they arrive until 9.20pm when they will be collected. If you still have difficulty with transportation to or from the show please contact me by Monday afternoon at the latest so we can help make a plan for your child. I would ask that all children begin to bring their costumes in on Monday, ready for a dress rehearsal on Tuesday.
Can it please be reminded AGAIN that every Tuesday we have trumpet lessons. Therefore, every child MUST have their trumpets in school. We do not have any additional trumpets to provide if a child has forgotten theirs. It is the children’s responsibility to bring them to school and they will therefore miss out. We become very slack at the end of term, which was incredibly disappointing.
We continue to have Forest school this term. As the weather is getting colder, children are expected to come in multiple layers, with waterproofs and appropriate footwear.
Thank you to each and every one of you who was able to attend our successful parent’s consultation evening last week. It was lovely to see you all and inform you or how well the term has gone and the targets for each child. As mentioned, if you would like to catch up for a longer session, please book an appointment with myself for a later date. Huge congratulations to all children who presented their Pathbrite profile. I’m sure you would agree that they did a fantastic job and we cannot wait to see their next presentation in due course. The children are free to log on throughout the year to update their profile.
Just a note, I shall be absent from school on Thursday, so Mrs Reid and Mrs Clarke shall be organising and supporting the children all day. They will still be at forest school so the normal routine will stay the same.
Due to our Shakespeare performance, our spelling test will instead take place on Wednesday morning for one week only. We will return to Wednesday afternoon the following week.
We are becoming more and more slack at bringing in our PE kit. PE takes place on a Monday and Friday, therefore all children must always have a PE kit school at all times. Trainers should be in every day for the mile run. No trainers, no run!
I look forward to everyone returning,
For week beginning: 20th November 2017
