Weekly Newsletter - Friday 20th April

Headteacher: Mrs L Nicholls

Dear Parents and Carers,

Diary Dates
The Big Pedal competition starts on Monday 23rd April. This is a national competition where all pupils are encouraged to travel to school in a sustainable way. So get on your bikes and scooters, as the JTA’s will be counting how many of our pupils have been cycling or scooting to school and reporting these numbers for the competition.
Some pupils are visiting Drapers’ Academy after school for the science club.
On Wednesday 25th April we would like to invite the parents and carers of pupils in Cherry to their sharing assembly to find out what they have been learning.
On Thursday afternoon year 1 children will be taking part in a jungle workshop and the spinebreakers from Cherry and Cedar class are visiting Waterstone’s in Romford to choose reading material for their peers.
On Friday we have a non school uniform day for the global ‘WE Walk for Water’ campaign.

Veggie Run
Veggie Run, the newly developed healthy app only for Havering Primary and Junior school children is launching on the 17 April.
What is the aim?
The app aims to create healthy competition amongst primary and Junior school children, where they learn to dodge unhealthy foods and get rewarded by collecting fruit and vegetables.
Why get the App?
The main advantage for pupils downloading and playing this app, is that pupils can win your school sports prizes!! These prizes are worth up to £200! Each school will receive a unique reference code that they share with pupils, who use this when they login to the game.
Where do I get the App?
Download and share the link from the 17 April -
Why do we need to promote Healthy Lunches?
Recent evidence suggests that only 1% of packed lunches are healthy!
We hope from children playing the game they are able to identify the difference between healthy and unhealthy foods.
The children will find out further information regarding the app during an assembly on 1st May.

We Walk for Water
On Friday 27th April, we will be hosting a non-uniform day in aid of WE Walk for Water. The WE Walk for Water campaign is run by the WE Movement, who believe that every person has a right to clean water. Throughout some developing countries women and girls have to walk 3.7 miles each day to collect water, which is often contaminated.
This year, WE Movement are running their first international event, where children from around the world will be coming together in solidarity to Walk for Change. At Broadford we will be walking with the other children around the world; each class will walk two laps of the school field, the pupils are invited to wear non-school uniform and pay 50p per family towards the WE Walk for Water campaign.
All money raised will go towards providing clean water to villages in WE Villages throughout developing countries. Every £15 raised gives one person access to clean water for life.
We appreciate your support with this fantastic cause and look forward to raising money in a fun and exciting way.

Music Tuition
We are fortunate to have an extremely talented and passionate music teacher, Cornelius Orasanu, who will visit the school weekly to teach pupils how to play the guitar and piano.
Guitar lessons will take place in a group of 4-5 and piano lessons will be taught individually.
The cost of the sessions are £5 for guitar and £9 for piano. If you qualify for pupil premium funding then you could receive a discount on tuition fees. Contact Mrs Taylor at the office to confirm if you are eligible or not.
We have some extra space available so we are now able to open up applications to year 5 pupils. If you are interested in your child participating in these lessons then please register your interest by clicking on the link below.

Summer Sun
We are very lucky to be experiencing this warmer weather so early in the Summer term. I would like to ask all parents to ensure that children have sun protection applied before they arrive at school. . It is also recommended that children bring caps/hats into school to wear during outdoor times. We will ensure that pupils have access to plenty of water throughout the day to keep them fully hydrated. Thank you for your support and co-operation in this matter.

Clubs will begin for the Summer term on Monday 30th April. Mrs Charlesworth and Mrs Chance are busy distributing the clubs and will be sending letter out next week.

Havering Catering Services
Apologies for the confusion with the menu this week. Havering catering services have produced a new menu which is in place until October.
Week beginning Monday 23rd April is week 2 on the Havering catering services menu. All meals are served with unlimited salad and vegetables and cost £2.20.
On Wednesday 25th April the kitchen are cooking a special Barnyard Bash menu. Menu choices will be sent home with the pupils. The cost of the special menu is £2.20 via sQuid and free for Infant aged pupils.
