Thursday 2nd November 2017
Welcome back - we hope you enjoyed the October break. We’re looking forward to a busy half term ahead with a range of activities planned including productions, carol concerts, discos and class trips. Thank you to everybody who came along to our All Saints’ Mass yesterday morning – it was lovely to see so many parents, carers, parishioners and family members in attendance.
Over the next few weeks, each class will walk to Church to participate in the 9.30am mass. If you are able to help accompany the children to and from Church, please let your child’s class teacher know. Each class will leave school, just after 9am, on the following dates:
Tues 14th November
Years 1 and 6
Tues 21st November
Years 3 and 4
Tues 28th November
Years 2 and 5
Research shows that reading for pleasure makes a significant difference to children’s educational performance. As a school we actively encourage all of our pupils to read to their parents every night. We ask that you help your child to maintain their Reading Record by signing their book when you hear them read. Thank you for your support.
The following events have been planned to celebrate Advent and the lead up to Christmas -
Thursday 7th December: Pavilions Carol Concert.
Tuesday 12th December: Early Years Christmas Production at 10.30am.
Tuesday 12th December: Year 6 to attend the Advent Carol Service at Westminster Cathedral.
Thursday 14th December: Years 1 and 2 Christmas Production at 2.30pm and 6pm.
Tuesday 19th December: Christmas Carol Concert in Church (all parents, carers, family members invited).
Wednesday 20th December: End of Term Mass (Church) at 9.30am.
