Welcome back everyone. I hope you all had a great holiday and managed to enjoy some of the lovely weather. I know I say it at the beginning of every term but even though we have only been back a few days we have settled back into our routine very quickly and the holiday seems a dim and distant memory. I also find it hard to believe that it is going to be May next week – the year is just flying by.
Next week all the school clubs start up again although if your child attends a club run by Mr Mills please do keep an eye on your phone as his wife is due to give birth to their second child at any time and he may have to rush away at a moment’s notice to ensure that he is there for the birth. Therefore, we may have to cancel a club at very short notice but I know you will understand under the circumstances.
It is actually a very busy week in school next week as we are hosting two events in school (some early years moderation and an inter school maths competition) and the PTA are holding an indulgence evening on Thursday. It is running from 7 -10.00pm and you can already pre-book your treatments if you come into reception and sign up on the sheets which list all the different types of treatments that will be available on the night. Remember the more people that come, the more money that will be raised for the school which benefits your children. I also think that an indulgence evening is a lovely place to give yourselves a well - deserved treat.
We also have the class photographs on Monday morning and we do ask that children come in winter uniform for this as it looks better on the photograph. It may be good idea also to ensure that your child takes a little extra care with their hair on that morning although with some children this will not be necessary because I can tell by some of the styles and hair gel used that some children spend hours on their hair before they come to school on any day. Some of the Year 5 children have cycling proficiency next week as well so please do take care in the playground when dropping off as there will be a lot of extra bikes around.
With so much going on next week it is all going to pass by in a whirl. I hope you all have a great weekend and I look forward to seeing you all again on Monday.
