Newsletter - Friday 4th December, 2020

Headteacher: Mrs L Nicholls 


Dear Parents and Carers,

Sadly we had to close our year 4 bubble down this week as we had the report of a positive Covid case within the year group. Staff are working hard and the children are able to access learning remotely through a number of platforms including Google Classroom, Google Meets, Mathletics and My Book Blog- so that they are able to keep up with their learning. We are very much looking forward to welcoming them back on Monday 14th December.


Christmas 

We have come to that time of year. It is going to be a very different Christmas but we want to ensure that pupils get to celebrate the festive season with their friends as much as possible within their year group bubbles. We will be having a pantomime for the children which they will enjoy and watch within their bubbles. 

Thursday 10th December - EYFS Christmas dress up day

Friday 11th December - Christmas jumper day
Tuesday 15th December - EYFS, Years 1&2 Christmas bedtime stories

Friday 18th December - Christmas party day - Christmas jumpers and festive headwear can be brought into school to wear for the party. 


KS2 Christmas Celebration

As we are unable to invite parents into school at this time, KS2 classes will be recording their concert within bubbles. This will be put together and will be available for parents to watch during the last week of term, week beginning Monday 14th December. 


Christmas Dinner

We will be offering pupils Christmas Dinner during the festive period and there will be a  meat and vegetarian option. We want to make the experience as jolly as we can so bubbles will eat in the dining hall on this occasion. There will be two sittings and the hall will be thoroughly cleaned in between each sitting.  

Monday 14th December - Years 1 & 6 

Tuesday 15th December - EYFS & year 4 

Wednesday 16th December - Years 2 & 3

Thursday 17th December - Year 5

On these dates children who are not having Christmas dinner and other years groups will be offered a cold service from the kitchen. 

Please ensure that you have completed the Christmas dinner form before Monday 7th December. 


Christmas Cards 

We would like to invite the pupils to send Christmas cards to their friends. This year we are asking that cards are sent to pupils in their own classes only. These cards can be brought into school and posted in  the class postbox up to Tuesday 15th December and then they will be sent home on Friday 18th December. 


Reception Applications
On behalf of Havering Council we would like to remind all parents and carers in the borough to apply now for their child’s 2021 Reception school place.  If your child is born between 01 September 2016 and 31 August 2017, you must apply online for their Reception school place at  www.havering.gov.uk/admissions. Deadline for applications is 15th January 2021.
If your child currently attends Nursery this does not mean that you will automatically get a reception place you must apply.
