Friday News 22.11.19

Dear Parents/Carers,

Next week’s school target is treat others as you would wish to be treated yourself.

There is a Carol Concert at Selby Abbey on 6.12.19, tickets available on the door, suggested donation £5, children free.  Our school choir will be performing there too!

Don’t forget it’s the PTA Christmas Fayre on Saturday 7th December 12-2pm.  We look forward to seeing lots of you there.  We are having a pre-loved Christmas jumper/t-shirt/outfit stall so if you have a Christmas jumper you no longer wear then please donate it to school then come along and treat yourself to a new one!

You will have seen that our Open Classrooms will take place on Wednesday 4th December. We have received feedback that this always happens on the same day of the week, and we apologise to parents who find this difficult due to work commitments. We have to use Wednesday evenings because this is the day when all our teachers will be present and available in the classroom, and because it doesn’t clash with the after-school clubs that we provide. Thank you for your understanding.

You may have seen our Facebook posts regarding our new ‘Headspace’ hut.  The work on this is progressing well and we are hoping it will be completed within the next 2 weeks. We have attached a couple of photos so those you haven’t seen them.

Children in years 1 to 6 will be going to the pantomime on 11th December, we will be leaving school at 12.15pm so will need to have an earlier lunch.  If your child is having school lunches that week then cook will be providing a buffet lunch which the children will eat in their classroom.  Reception do not go to the pantomime so will have a school dinner as normal.
