Dear Parents and Carers,

On the Friday that we broke up for half term the school was treated to Indigo Class’ (Yr 6) assembly about World War II. The children did a fabulous job delivering their lines clearly and loudly and really got into role well done Indigo Class!

We have recruited a new Teaching Assistant, Mrs Karen Lewis. Karen will be working five mornings a week in Indigo Class; please make her feel very welcome.

The run up to Christmas is obviously a very busy time; we will shortly be sending out an updated calendar of events so that you can get them all booked into your diaries.

Congratulations to our two Reception Classes, Giraffe and Zebra, for the way that they have taken to full days in school; we have been very impressed with how independent the children have been with learning the lunchtime and afternoon routines well done!

Some reminders

Climbing FramesRemember that the children cannot go on the climbing frames before or after school. Please supervise your children at all times. To secure the site we will be closing the school gates once our clubs have finished.

Children in Need Day 15th November  We love supporting this event; please let your children wear their pyjamas to school and make a donation to this wonderful charity.

Visit from the new head teacher of Christ’s secondary schoolMrs Helen Dixon will now be visiting the school on Wednesday 20th November to talk to parents. Please come along to hear her plans for the school.

Poppies On Monday 11th November we will be commemorating Armistice Day. This week we are selling poppies. We request a minimum donation of 20 pence.

Puddles and mud You will have noticed that we have some muddy patches around the site; we were expecting to get these sorted over half term but this didn’t happen, we are following up to ensure that these are dealt with as soon as possible and we are very sorry for the delay.

Dinner Money The cost of school meals for this half term is £77.00.  Please pay using the online facility if possible, or by cheque or correct cash to the office.  If you would prefer to pay weekly, it's £11.00.  There are a number of parents that still owe dinner money from before the break - please settle any outstanding accounts by return.  Thank you.

W/C 18th November is International Week   Each class will have a lesson/activity that will focus on the Commonwealth (the Commonwealth Games are being held in Glasgow next year). You will hear more from your children’s teachers.

Willkommen, Bienvenue, Welcome

 

Blink and you missed it half-term has already passed us by and now we’re hurtling towards Christmas like an elf on roller skates. I will do this many times over the year, but this week my huge thanks go to my fellow PTA lifers, Donna Connor, Karen Jeffery, Suzie Durrant, Jennie Elsmore, Judy Andersonand Liz Rose. The hours that these girls put in are unbelievable and whilst I’m driven around in a limo and asked to judge Mr World, they put in the day-to-day graft. They are gorgeous. They are hot. They have no idea how much work I need them to do for the Christmas Fair. Ladies, you rock.

Tickets for Christ’s Fireworks (this Friday night) and Quiz Night (Friday 15th Nov) are selling faster than Take That on Ice. Don’t miss out please leave your order with your child’s name and class with the school office. Don’t worry if your booking forms are now in the tumble drier write me a note with your order and it will be done. Quiz Night tickets are £15 eachFireworks are £6 per adult, £4 per child and £18 per family (2 adults, 2 children). Under 5s are free. Please make cheques out to Holy Trinity PTA. Or Mary Smyth’s Round-the-World-Cruise Fund if you prefer.

Winter’s here with rosy cheeks,

The Christmas Fair is in THREE weeks!!!!!

It’s come around faster than a tax return, but your class rep is already poised like a ninja boy scout and they need your help, so be prepared (no nunchucks required). A few guiding principles:

1)       Please can you put any donations in the green PTA shed by the junior climbing frame. The door does open, honest. And please sort and label your donations. It really helps the door.

2)       A lot of our set-up can be done on Friday 29th November. If you can help, Mrs Cox will supervise an after-school film for Holy Trinity pupils until 5pm. And you know they’ll behave for her. I certainly do.

3)       Speaking of Friday 29th November, we have use of the PTA hut all afternoon, so if you need to sort toys or books, the space is available. If you plan to use it, please could you drop me a line so I can make sure there’s space for all and we don’t end up with a multi-storey-on-Christmas-Eve scenario.

4)       If your stall needs anything bought by the PTA (i.e. Santa’s Grotto, Lucky Dip etc) please can you liaise directly with Treasurer Suzie Durrant on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for funds. They don’t let me hold the purse. Can’t think why.

5)       The fair is from 11.30 am to 3.30pm on Saturday 30th November. You’ll need helpers for set-up and clear-up and the school will be open from 9am. We are encouraging people to use theDoodle.com timetables for ease, but perhaps put a hard copy outside your classroom a week before the fair so people can sign up manually.

Remember Mufti day on Friday in exchange for chocolate for the fair. If you’re one of our little nursery friends, Mufti day is dress-up day for all you princess and pirates. But the chocolate’s still for us.

Enjoy yourselves and remember that a true friend is someone who thinks you’re a good egg, even though they know you’re slightly cracked.

Mary Smyth (Chair of the PTA. Bain of your existence.)
