Red Nose Day – March 24 th 2017
We have started selling the noses for ‘Red Nose Day’ next week which is on Friday, March 24 th As I mentioned in my newsletter last week it will be a non-uniform day for the children but they must wear something red –even if it is just their red nose. As long as they have their red nose on the day they will not have to pay a penance for not wearing uniform – otherwise they have to pay a least a pound which will be donated to the ‘Red Nose Day’ fund.
As we also like to do something silly on this day so we have decided to have all the children and staff gather in the KS2 playground to dance the ‘Macarana’ together at 3.00pm. We would love for parents to join us but to do so you must make a donation to the charity before we let you through the gate. After the dance children will return to their classrooms to get all their things before they leave for the end of the day –they cannot go home straight after the dance. They will need to be collected from the classroom/place that they are normally picked up from at the end of the school day.
New Foundation Block
As many of you know the present nursery building is going to be knocked down and replaced by a new foundation block in which both nursery and reception children will be educated. Work for this is going to start in the Easter holidays but to ensure that they are ready for this they are going to be doing some preparation work during this term.
On March 27 th a big crate will be delivered to the school and placed in front of the school office so that some of the Nursery resources can be stored safely. On March 30 th the nursery will be relocated into the main hall and preparations will begin to set up the building site – these will continue on Friday March 31 st . They are going to mark out a new entrance for people to come into the school to ensure their safety whilst work is taking place. The demolition of the old building will start on April 3 rd and should be completed by the time we come back after the Easter holidays. The new building should be completed by May 26 th which is the day we break up for the summer half term. It is all very exciting but there may be some disruption to the normal routine but I know that you will all be understanding about this and we will try to inform you as soon as possible if there are any changes to the normal routine. We have been informed that work traffic will not be entering the site at the beginning and end of the day when the children are walking to and from the school.
