Pupil Voice

Aycliffe Community Primary School were lucky enough to experience the Astrodome on Tuesday.  Pupils were asked if they had enjoyed the experience and this is what they said…….

Harry said, “I liked it when the man was showing us the world.”

Alivia said, “I really liked looking at the Cosmo and all the stars.”

Emily said, “It was awesome.  The sky was so pretty and I liked the shooting stars.”

Codie said, “I felt like it was a lot of fun even though we have done it before.  It was very hot.”

Amy said, “It was really hot and actually quite fun.  There was a projector all around the dome showing us the stars and planets.”

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.

School Angel fund raising http://www.schoolangel.org.uk/aycliffe-community-primary-school.html Thank you to everyone that has supported the school by using School Angel, we have managed to raise £235 this year.

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.
