Random Acts of Kindness Week You might be wondering why your child keeps talking about Warm Fuzzies - It's Random Acts of Kindness Week! Our children have been paying one another compliments, letting others go in front of them in the line and doing kind deeds this week. Check out http://www.randomactsofkindness.org/ for other ways to participate in this international movement of 'paying it forward' and being kind!
‘Joy Factor’ What’s all this about a firework clap and a DJ clap? DJ clap—(Scratching an Imaginary record whilst holding headphones onto one ear) 'Wikka wikka wikka wikka WOW!' Firework clap – fingers whooshing towards the sky “ooh!” then hands openingpop, pop, popping in the air “aahh!”
You’ve got to have friends!
Once again we have been able to award another Buddy Certificate as we continue to welcome new children in to our Reception Classes here at School 21.

Over the half-term break, why not check that your child’s name is in all of their school uniform as this will help considerably in rehoming items of missing uniform. It may even help to rehome some of the items which went missing over the last term.

As you will be aware, sometimes young children fail to make it to the toilet in time and consequently require changing. At the start of the year, we spent £50 on spare clothing: socks, underpants, knickers, trousers to ensure that children who needed changing could be put into clean and dry clothes. Sadly, the majority of our stock has been lent to children and never returned. Please return any items of spare clothing that may have come home with your child in order for us to change children and prevent the need for parents to come and change their children themselves.
