Dear Parents and Carers
It has been lovely to meet so many of you over the last couple of weeks at various events such as Celebration Assemblies and our Mighty Maths days.
It has been good to see so many of you getting involved in your child’s Maths learning during the Addition and Subtraction sessions – I have managed to get round to all the classes during each of those hours in order to see the progression of Maths teaching through the year groups. I do encourage you to come to the upcoming sessions on Multiplication and Division – please see dates below.
I would like to formally invite you all to our Harvest Celebration Service in Burrough Green Church on Friday, 6th October. I am really looking forward to my first service in your local church and it will be an opportunity for you to all meet the Rev Nikki Mann the new Rector who will be attending the service. The children are all busy practising their Harvest songs and it will be a lovely way to end our week as the service is now being held at 2.00 p.m. Children will all walk back to school together where we would ask you to collect them as normal at the end of the day.
There will be no celebration assembly next Friday morning due to our Harvest Service in the afternoon.
In view of the continuing economic situation, we will again be donating your generous contributions to Jimmy’s Cambridge. Without support Jimmy’s would be unable to offer breakfast and a well balanced, nutritious evening meal to the homeless community. We will be collecting non-perishable food (dried or canned goods, condiments, jams and spreads etc.) and we invite you to give your donations to your children to bring into school on the day. All donations will be gratefully received however, please ensure that all donations are ‘in date’.
I look forward to seeing you all next week and in the meantime have a lovely weekend.
