NSPCC Workshop

The NSPCC representative has lead, as planned, her two assemblies with Key stages 1 and d 2.  Unfortunately, due to a bad accident on the A2, her arrival was delayed by an hour and a half.  She will therefore carry out the NSPCC workshops with classes 6 and 7 next Tuesday.

Nativity

The tickets are now available for the Nativity from the school office.  Similarly to last year, due to health and safety regulations, we can only allow two tickets per child.  All tickets will be numbered; please bring your ticket with you when you attend (hopefully this will speed up the signing in process).

Well done to the pupils that played in the friendly netball match against Dymchurch last night.

Pupil Voice

Some pupils played a friendly netball match against Dymchurch Primary School and this is what they thought about it……

Maizie said ‘I really enjoyed the match because we had an actual netball coach there who said our footwork was amazing.  She told us to work on our shooting.  I’d like to play again.’

Leon said ‘The other team played very well.  It was very cold but good fun.’

Macey said ‘It was very fun but very cold.  I think that both teams could have played a bit better but the sadly the other team won.  We would like to play again.’

PE Kits

Could parents please make sure that all pupils have their PE kits ready and in school.  Each pupil has their own locker where their PE kits can be kept during the school term.

Late arrival at school

When your child arrives late at school, he/she misses the teacher's instructions, their morning task and possibly the introduction to the mathematics lesson. Your child may also feel embarrassed at having to enter the classroom late. School begins at 09.00am.  Please help your child to be punctual.
