Newsletter Friday 8th December

Dear Parents and Carers,

Thank you for an amazing Winter Fair. It was so lovely to see you there and for helping or supporting this event. It was really enjoyable and thank you to the organisers and for all your hard work. I know the children had a lovely time too.


We have a very busy week next week. On Wednesday 13th December we have the Nativity. Tickets for Year 1 and Reception have gone home and please remember is it only two adults per child as we can’t fit anyone else in. The performance for Year 1 parents and carers is at 9:45am and the performance for Reception parents and carers is at 2pm. The children will get to see the dress rehearsal this Monday. Year 6 are going to see a production of Annie at Stoke Newington on Tuesday afternoon. It is Christmas jumper day next Friday (15th December) and the children will be enjoying a delicious Christmas lunch on that day too. On Tuesday 19th December we have our Christmas concert in the church at 2:00pm and this is all the children from Year 2 to 6 and we look forward to seeing you there. This is in St Mary’s church on Church Street. You cannot pick your child up from there. We ask that you pick them up from school as normal at their regular time. The Nursery performance is at 10:30am on Thursday 14th December and they will be singing a variety of winter songs. We look forward to seeing Nursery parents and carers then. We have our family carol concert on Wednesday 13th December at 5pm. Thank you to those of you who have already bought tickets. These are for sale in the school office and are £5 per adult and children are free. This includes refreshments. We look forward to seeing you there.


Laura Green is returning from maternity leave on Wednesday and will be the teacher of Emerald class with Aja. Thank you to Emma for covering her maternity leave. Emma will continue to be the teacher of Jade class with Asifa. 


Amirah in Year 6 was incredibly proud this week about the Hackney District Football and wrote this about it –

“Hackney District Girls Football Team won the Inner London South County Cup last Saturday at Douglas Eyre football ground in Walthamstow. We had to play against four different teams and I managed to save all the goals in every match, meaning four clean sheets! This was also the first time Hackney District Girls and Boys have won the tournament together.”


Well done Amirah and everyone in the Hackney District teams.


Please remember we finish at 1pm on Thursday 21st December and there is no Junior Adventure Group or clubs so all children need to be picked up then.


Have a lovely weekend and we look forward to seeing you at all our events next week.
