WEEKLY BULLETIN Dear Parents and Carers, We are fast approaching half term and the closing date for secondary transfer applications which closes at midnight on 31st October. Please ensure you have your application in on time. We are delighted that our chickens have settled in well and are now very part of school life. Pupils are enjoying their time in the allotment and caring for our new feathered friends. Our PTA are holding their next meeting on 22nd October at 3:30pm in the Elm classroom. It would be great to see you there as the work of the PTA is vital to the school community.

We Are Collecting Aldi Tokens! Aldi supermarkets are currently running their ‘Kit for Schools’ promotion, which is giving 20 primary school the chance to win £20,000. Every primary school who enters by completing their Aldi’s Kit for Schools poster will also receive an exclusive school sports kit! If you have any Aldi sticker tokens we would be grateful if these could be brought into school please, as we are collecting them. The promotion ends 3rd November 2019. Thank you!
Children in Need Planning Our School Council enjoyed meeting this week to plan Children in Need. We have decided on a non-uniform day where children can wear spots, face paint or Pudsey headbands, a colouring competition for KS1 and a drawing competition for KS2. We hope to raise lots of money for children who are less fortunate than ourselves. Look out for more information being sent home in school bags.
Finally, just to remind you we break up for half term on Wednesday 23rd October and return to school on Monday 4th November.
