Dear Parents and Carers
Problems with Plastic!
When some of our year two children saw this photograph of a bird feeding its mate a piece of plastic it caused a detailed discussion. We all agreed that we could find out more about this problem and do our bit to help the environment.
Mr Jackson’s class did some research and told me that if we do not do anything about this issue right now, by 2050 there could be more plastic in the ocean than fish! Because of this shocking prediction the children have decided to learn much more about being environmentally friendly and will start by setting up a recycling station in school for our waste paper, card, plastic and items for compost. The Year 2 children want to make a greenhouse from plastic bottles and will let you know more about how you could help with that soon.
So much spare uniform is discarded because it is either left behind or children have grown out of it so our Parent Governors have organised a ‘Uniform Cupboard’ for you to take items from whenever you need. There is no charge for any of the items in the cupboard but we would like parents and carers to keep donating any good quality uniform that is no longer required.
The ‘Uniform Cupboard’ is near the Yr 1 Classes and the doors will be open every morning and at the end of every day from Tuesday 10th September, so please let’s try to recycle whenever we can. Items in the cupboard include: jumpers, cardigans, polo shirts, coats, PE kits, shoes, swimming kits and book bags.
Wrap Around Care
We offer a wraparound care facility before and after school 7.30am – 6pm, please ask in the school office or see our website for more information.
We also offer a free breakfast each morning from 8.30am to 8.45am in your child’s classroom. If your child is not wanting a breakfast the classrooms open at 8.45am and the school day starts at 8.55am prompt.
Diary dates are included over the page. Thank you for your continued support.
