“Believe, Achieve, Succeed Together”

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Sports’ Day - Thursday 28th June 2018

Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are in the morning at 9.30 and then Years 3-6 will be in the afternoon from 1.30pm. Lunch time will be 12-1 and if you would like to picnic on the school field, then please collect your child from their classroom at 12 so that you can sign them out. You will need to sign them back into class at 1pm. Please can you ensure that you do not leave any rubbish on the school field, thank you.

All children will need their full PE kit in school and having looked at the weather forecast…will need a hat and a water bottle as well!

The PTA will be selling tea and coffee on the school field from our outdoor classroom. They will also have raffle tickets, 100 square and passports for the summer fair. The passports are for children who do not want to use cash at the fair and can be bought in advance.

Mathletics

Well done to the children for doing so well in Mathletics – keep up the good work!

Phones

No children should be bringing phones into school. If there are exceptional circumstances, please write to the teacher explaining why your child may need to have a phone and they will be considered. Walking to school is not an exceptional circumstance.

I would also request that parents carefully monitor their children’s online activity whether on phones or tablets. We have a lot of children who are falling out over messages posted on WhatsApp, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube and other social media platforms. These are not in the age range for primary school children and this is because they are not mature enough to understand fully the implications of using them.

Year 2 Play

Year Two children are busy learning the lines for their play and practising new songs. We are really looking forward to their performance on 12th July at 2.15pm.

Scooters

We have seven scooters being left in the sheds overnight. Please take your scooters home or check whether you have a scooter missing! Any bikes or scooters left at the end of the term, will be removed.

Bikeability November 2018!

Any children in the current Year Four or Year Five who are interested in doing this, should give their names to their teacher so that we can compile a list for the tutor in September. Children will need a roadworthy bike.

Friends of Willowbrook

PTA will be collecting branded used ink cartridges to raise money for the school and will shortly be sending home a letter about this.
