Dear Parents and Carers,

On Wednesday 6th some of our year 5&6 volunteers are going to Wembley SSE arena for the WE day event. They will have the pleasure of hearing inspirational speakers such as Spencer West, Marc & Craig Kielburger and the it is rumoured that the Duke of Sussex is going to make an appearance.
Thursday 7th is world book day, please see below for details. Phil Mylrea is in school for the day with our cyclists.
On Friday 8th we have Me & You services in school for an assembly with year 5&6 pupils regarding keeping themselves safe when out in the community.

Online safety
This week in school we have all revised our online safety behaviour. Our pupils are very aware of how they should behave online and have been reminded what to do if they see something that worries or upsets them. They can report & block and they must always tell a trusted adult.
We would like to remind parents about making sure that you set up parental controls for your devices at home. this will help to restrict the types of content that your child can view, as well as help you to monitor their activity. Most importantly as a parent or carer be present when your children are online. This will give you a greater understanding of what they are doing on their device.

Thursday 7th March is world book day. We are going to celebrate the day by asking all pupils to dress as their favourite book character for the day. The children could be Harry, Matilda or Alice and we are looking forward to seeing all of the wonderful ideas that you come up with. There will be prizes for the most imaginative character costumes!
Please be mindful when choosing a costume as the children will still be going outside for play  as usual during the day. Ensure that your child wears their coat over their costume and has on sensible shoes such as their school shoes or trainers.

Parents Consultations  
At the end of the term we will be holding parent consultations when you are invited to come and meet your child’s class teacher to find out how they are progressing this year. This will be an opportunity to discuss the year group passport and how your child is making steps towards meeting end of year expectations.
These events will be held on Monday 8th and Tuesday 9th April.

We are missing quite a few books from our school library. Can we ask that you all have a look at home for any extra reading materials that you may have at home.

There is a special menu to celebrate pancake day on Tuesday 5th March. 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.
