Do you have electrical skills or training? Are you available to help for a short time at the South Milford Bonfire event next Saturday? We desperately need additional help for our team of trained electricians who install lighting at the event. This could either be during the afternoon (between 11am-4pm) or disconnecting the systems at the end of the event (9pm-10pm). If you are able to offer any time at all, please contact the office.
Thank you to everyone who has volunteered to help at the bonfire next week. You should have receive a letter today outlining your role – if you don’t, please contact the office.
If anyone would like to buy an extra advent calendar or chocolate treat this year and put it into the collection box for Knottingley Food Bank we are sure this would be greatly appreciated by lots of family’s. Thank you as always for your kind generosity.
We would like to congratulate Miss Fenton who got married during the half-term holiday! We wish her and her husband every happiness in their new life together. She will now be known by her married name, Mrs Elcock.
Last year, Mr Riley’s class wrote 100-word stories for a national competition. We understand that some of the children have achieved awards for their work and we would really like to celebrate with them. If your child has received a letter please let us know so that we can add them to our list of award winners.
We are really sad to announce that, after a good number of years’ service to our school, Mrs Beck has decided to retire at Christmas. We will all miss her a great deal. Governors have started the process of recruiting a new assistant for our Reception class and are confident that we will be able to appoint in time for the start of the new term in January.
Don’t forget that it is the learning reviews (parent consultations) next week. Teachers will have progress information to share with you so that you can see how well your child is currently doing with their learning.
Friday 18th November is Children in Need day. We always do something in school to support this charity as we believe it is a worthwhile cause. This year we are having a spotty theme, and invite all children to come to school dressed in something spotty (or with a spotty face!) in return for a £1 donation. We will also be covering a large Pudsey Bear in coins so please donate any loose change, and we will have a bun sale – donations of buns would be most welcome! Children will be given a bun at morning break and any remaining buns will be sold after school.
