Dear Parents/Carers,

Next week’s school target; Respect the school environment.

Please be aware that the date for key stage 2 Carols in church has been changed from Thursday 17th Dec to Monday 14th Dec, it will still be at 9.30am. Parents are more than welcome to join us.

Please find attached another booklet to help you to read with your child at home. This describes the ‘paired reading’ method that is proven to work effectively and we hope provides useful ideas for you.

A huge ‘thank you’ to all the people who kindly agreed to sponsor the South Milford bonfire. We have gained more sponsors than in previous years and really appreciate your support. Don’t forget that the fun starts tomorrow at 5.30pm!

We would like to say congratulations to Miss Sutcliffe who got married at October half term. We can’t wait to see the photos! Her married name is now Mrs Lofthouse but to save confusion she will remain as Miss Sutcliffe for the rest of the academic year.

The School Council would like to raise money to purchase new playtime equipment and to make improvements in the pupil toilets. They are organising a ‘Monday Bun Day’ on Monday 9th November after school and would like donations of buns please. Children may bring £1 on that day to buy a bun after school, with all monies going towards the school council project.

Children In Need day is Friday 13th November. The theme this year is ‘being a hero for change’, and so we would encourage children to ‘change’ for the day in return for a donation to the charity. They may wish to change their hair for the day, or even change from a boy to a girl (or vice versa!) We will be collect lose change for children to cover Pudsey Bear with and as always the very popular bun sale. Please send in donations of buns, every child will receive one and then the remaining ones will be sold after school.

PTA will be making & selling real Christmas wreaths again this year to raise money for school equipment.  Order forms will be coming home with children today.  Please return them to school along with payment by Wednesday 25th November.
