Children’s Raffle
We would like to say a huge thank you to Miss Sedgwick who organised and put together a fabulous Raffle for the children at Aycliffe Community primary School.  Every child was given a raffle ticket and there were over 30 prizes that Miss Sedgwick had collected or had been donated to her for this raffle.  Miss Sedgwick didn’t want any child to miss out on a prize so bought sweets for every child in school who did not win a prize in the raffle.
Sports Stars
‘I am valued’
As a result of Pupil Panels ideas, this year we will be awarding one child from each class an ‘I am valued’ trophy to place on their desk for one week.  Other members of the class are asked to write something positive about the child selected.  Over the course of the year every child will receive the trophy.
Children receiving the trophy this week are:
Lunchtime Clubs
Monday - Lego Club with Mrs Kent
Tuesday - Homework Club with Miss Sandham
Friday - Choir Club with Mrs Coade
Everyday - IPad Club with Mrs Manton
Wellington Boots
Please can you ensure that all children have a pair of wellington boots in school with them.  This year every class will attend the Woodland Area for a weekly planned lesson and it can be muddy depending on the weather.
Arts and Crafts
Miss Sedgwick runs an Art and Crafts club that children can attend every Friday during Golden Time.  In order to make the club a great success Miss Sedgwick needs a constant supply of craft items such as:
Paper plates
Lace trimmings
Artificial flowers
Donations of the above would be appreciated.
Play and Stay
Mrs Manton will be running a play and stay group every Wednesday morning from 9am until 10.30am.  Refreshments will be sold for a small contribution. 
School Lockers
Due to limited space in the children’s lockers, we would like to encourage your child, should they wish to use a back pack, to bring in a small pack so that they fit more easily into the lockers and doors can be closed properly.  Ideally children just need a small P.E bag and their book bag in school.
School Uniform
Please ensure that you label your child’s full uniform, including PE and swimming kits.
Just a polite reminder: please do not leave litter on the school premises.
Free School Meals
If you have access to the internet and would like to apply online for Free School Meals, please use the following website: http://www.kent.gov.uk/education-and-children/schools/free-school-meals.
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.
