The children have thoroughly enjoyed breaking the rules today – and we have loved seeing the variety of wacky hairstyles and colourful outfits! The three new School Council Committees have now met, and the members have received their badges. What a busy half-term it has been; the children are understandably tired, and we hope that they, and you, all have a good chance to rest and relax over the coming week – and do remember, Monday 1st November is a staff training day so school begins again on Tuesday 2nd!

Don’t forget if you have not chosen to sign up for the Wednesday afternoon enrichment provision after half-term, that pick up will be at 1.05 pm prompt on Wednesdays. The gate will open at 1.00 pm and children should be collected from their classrooms as usual.
Children who are staying for the afternoon provision should be collected from their classrooms at 3:15 pm.
COVID over half-term
Please ensure that you continue to notify us of positive PCR tests over the half-term break by emailing email@example.com. Further information on Covid can be found here: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/
Volunteering in school
We are keen to welcome volunteers back into school in lots of different capacities - whether to listen to children reading, support in lessons, join us for outdoor learning sessions, or, if you enjoy being creative, to support our administrative team in sprucing up some of our corridors and displays
Uniform after half-term
On non-PE days, children are generally coming to school in the correct uniform. However on PE days there are many children wearing non-uniform items. The children in these photos are wearing the correct PE kit (school PE t-shirt, black shorts, plain black tracksuit (no hoodies) or black tracksuit with the school logo, and trainers). Please check over half-term that you have the correct uniform for PE and non-PE days. After half term, children will be asked to change out of incorrect uniform into a clean school spare item for the day.
The PTFA has lots going on at the moment:

We have our logo competition running until Friday 29th October, so if you would like to have a go at designing our new logo, please send your design to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can use the design template or just use a plain piece of paper.
Over half-term (23rd-31st October) we are also running a pumpkin trail. It's a great chance to walk/scoot/cycle around our village, spot some pumpkin pictures and solve some clues. You will be given a trail sheet by your teacher or you can pick one up from Twelve in the High Street or from the porch in St Vigor's Church. If you would like to be in with a chance of winning some fab books about magic, mystery and monsters, just email your completed trail sheet to email@example.com. Please let us know your name and class if you send in your sheets so we can pick an appropriate book for you if you are one of our winners. A big thank you to Tesco and to a parent for donating all these fab books for prizes. The pumpkin trail is a free event for all the community to enjoy but if you would like to donate you can do so here: https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/pumpkintrail
If you would like to be a link between your child's class and the PTFA to help everyone keep up-to-date with news, events and opportunities, please pop us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a great half-term everyone!
