Weekly Update-Friday 3rd November

What an unusually eventful week we had starting back this half term. I have my fingers crossed, that is the end of the extreme weather warnings this year.


We have poppies to sell again at school this year. Our School Council will be taking them around the classes in the mornings next week. If you would like to have one, please put your poppy donation in an envelope/purse, and the children can choose their poppy in the mornings.


We have our first Parent/Teacher meetings next week. Meetings will take place in the hall, with all parents entering through reception. You will be directed to where your child's books are, so please give yourself enough time to look through before your appointment. If you do need to bring children with you, there is a child area/creche with activities to do,  run in Rabbit Class by staff, where children can go whilst you are at your meeting. At your meeting you will receive your child's targets they will be working on to improve their learning over the next term. We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday and Thursday next week.


From next Tuesday, for a week, we have a Scholastic pop up book fair at our school. This is a great opportunity to buy Christmas presents and books for the children. Please come and have a look -it is open all day, and you are welcome to browse up until 3.30pm (later on Parent/Teacher evenings).


Mrs Charles has been working with our School Council regarding their fundraising organisation for 'Children in Need' day on Friday 17th November this year. They have lots of activities to fundraise pennies for this cause, including a dress down day, where everybody can come in spots! Look out for their letter, with all their ideas!


We are collecting names of volunteers who can help on our school Shopping Bazaar day on Tuesday 5th December. We need lots and grandparents can come and volunteer too. Please let the office know if you are available to help on this day. Volunteering consists of taking children to the hall to pick gifts from their shopping list, then helping to wrap the gifts to go under the tree. It is a magical day, and will give you lots of festive cheer. We are also looking for wrapping paper and bubble wrap donations for the day, and please bring in any of these to the school office.


Our PTA are collecting prizes for the fundraising Christmas Raffle. If you, or a company you work for, have a new gift to give (or an unwanted new Xmas gift you would like to donate), please bring them into the school office. We appreciate everybody's generosity for this fundraising event.


There are still a few tickets for BWJS Firework event at Hoe Road, and please pop along to see our PTA selling their sweets! I have put the firework code and a little about our assembly about Bonfire Night on our learning links. Please have a look and share the safety code at home too:


Bonfire Night


Wishing you a lovely weekend.


Best wishes
