Upcoming Events

Dear Parents/Carers,

I would like to extend a warm welcome to Mrs Desai and Mrs Stenning, who have both joined the St Michael’s team.  Once Mrs Desai has had a chance to settle in, we would like to invite parents/carers in for a ‘Meet the Teacher’ session – this is scheduled for Friday 9th February at 2.40pm in the Year 6 classroom.

The PTA continues to fund raise for our desperately needed play area – hopefully we have nearly reached our target, many thanks to everyone who has contributed so far.  A huge thank you to the 10 dads and Mr Honey who turned up last Saturday to help us clear the old playground site, in preparation for building works on the new play area, they worked incredibly hard.    Miss Jones and Mrs Hamilton provided much needed sustenance of bacons rolls and cups of tea.  The area already looks so much better and we are just awaiting the results of the Tesco vouchers to see how much we have got towards the new equipment.

Please can I remind all parents/carers that boots and jeans are not part of school uniform and should not be worn, and that trainers should only be worn during PE lessons.  If a child is wearing the incorrect uniform, an email will be sent home.

On 31st January a group of children from Years 4, 5 and 6 are travelling up to the O2 to sing in the Young Voices concert, where between 5,000-8,000 children will perform as a single choir to a sold-out audience of family and friends.  I am sure they will remember this for the rest of their lives.

Y6 Bewl Water Residential – thank you to parents that have returned the permission slips and those who have already started making payments towards the trip.  However, a large percentage has still not replied; please can you pop into the office to collect the necessary information.

Y5 Harry Potter Studio Tour 22nd March - permission slips and payments are due in by Friday 16th March please.

Y4 Swattenden Residential 27th– 29th March – please note that final payments are due by 23rd March 2018.

The PTA are holding a coffee and cake morning on Friday 9th February at 9.10am. This will hopefully be one of many similar events to invite and welcome people into our school community.  Please drop your children off as usual and then come and sign in via the school office.

In addition, on Friday 9th February Y2 are inviting their parents to their class assembly at 2.40pm.  Entry as normal via the school office.

On Friday 23rd March we will be celebrating Sports Relief by holding a non-uniform day where children can dress up in sporty outfits.  All donations will go to the Sports Relief charity.

Kind regards,

Sara Williamson
