Newsletter 22 - 1st March 2024

Dear Parents and Carers,


It was lovely to welcome Year 5 parents in to Year 5 Class Assembly yesterday – great to have the opportunity for you to hear about their learning and see some of their work. Thank you Year 5 – you were wonderful!


Year 6 Class Assembly

We’re now looking forward to Year 6 Class Assembly next Thursday 7th March at a slightly earlier time of 9am. Parents are welcome to come in via the back hall door on Church Road after drop-off.


Red Nose Day

We will be welcoming red noses and ‘wearing something silly for money’ on Friday 15th March. See below for further details. Thank you to School Council for organising this.


World Book Day

We will be celebrating next Friday 8th March. We invite children to dress up as their favourite book character and the PTA have arranged a book sale throughout the day in school.


Behaviour Posters

I shared our new Behaviour Policy with you last week; maybe you’ll find these posters helpful too as they were written with contributions from the children.


Wishing you a lovely weekend,


Mrs Griffith

World Book Day - Thursday 7th March - Special Menu

World Book Day - Friday 8th March

Don't forget we will be celebrating World Book Day in school this year on Friday 8th March and children will be asked to dress up as characters from books! 

Wear Something Funny for Money

On Friday 15th March we will be raising funds for Comic Relief who do such excellent work in the UK, their primary aim being to create a just world free from poverty. Children can come into school in their usual uniform but wearing something funny for money for a minimum donation of £1! We hope to raise at least £250.


Items the children can wear:

  • a red nose 
  • a wig
  • hair chalk / hair gel – crazy hairstyle
  • hat / cap
  • teeny-boppers
  • wig
  • colourful / crazy socks
  • flashy belt
  • fancy gloves / scarf


This is how the money we raise may be spent by Comic Relief:

£10 could pay for a much-needed respite session for an isolated young carer in the UK.

£50 could provide toiletry packs for 10 people sleeping rough in the UK.

£200 could pay for legal aid to help reunite five separated refugee families.

Alexander Devine Hospice - The Big Chick Knit

We will be supporting the Alexander Devine Hospice at Easter this year by selling knitted chicks containing a creme egg for £3.  Please can you donate a creme egg or two?  Please drop these to the school office and we will pop them in to a cute knitted chick or bunny to sell from school reception.  

See here for more information.  


Reporting our Flooded Roads

A number of roads around our school and community flood regularly causing issues and danger for road users and pedestrians.  Children in Bedford Lane, for example, are forced to walk to school in the middle of the road on a blind bend as both footpaths are often impassable. We also know our older children and Charters students arrive at school and home absolutely drenched by inconsiderate drivers combined with the huge amount of water standing on our roads.  If you see a flood, please can you report it to RBWM every time it happens, highlighting the risk to our children and so making it harder it to ignore?
