Friday 30th September

Dear Parents and Carers,

We have had a lovely busy week this week. Thank you for attending the Meet the Teacher meetings. We hope you found it useful. Year 2 – 6 will be sending out weekly newsletters that will let you know what the children have been learning and how you can help them. The children are writing these themselves. Please read them.

Thank you for supporting the International Food and Welcome event last Friday. It was a great success and raised nearly £2000 for the school as well as being a great event for our families. It was lovely seeing so many of you there and we look forward to doing it again next year. Sorry for the long queue to get in. We will improve that next year. Thank you to all the parents and carers who made and donated food. Thank you to the Spence Bakery for donating the rolls for the BBQ. Thank you to Pressure Drop, a Hackney Brewery, for donating beer and thank you to the Cookery, a butchers on Stoke Newington High Street for donating burgers. Thank you for all your support and I really enjoyed seeing the community come together. It was also lovely that the sun shone for us too.

We took some of the children to see the Lion King this week. They absolutely loved it and were a credit to the school. It was lovely watching them enjoy a theatre experience.

Please can I remind KS1, Reception and Nursery parents and carers to let KS2 children come into school first and to not wait by the gates. Please can I also ask that you walk around the school to leave to avoid congestion. Please could you ensure your child is not touching any of the equipment in Nursery as this is either ready for the children or has been tidied away. If you have a childminder or another adult picking up please can you let them know this information too. Thank you for your support with this.

I hope you received the email about the census lunch. If your child has a school lunch on this day it really helps us. Thank you for your support with this.  

I really hope you have a lovely weekend,
