Y3 Visit to Weston Park Museum – 21.10.16

As part of our ‘Ancient Egyptians’ topic, we will be visiting Weston Park Museum on Friday 21st October. In the morning, we will be taking part in an Egyptian workshop, where the children will be involved in various different activities. In the afternoon, we will be looking around the museum at their Egyptian artefacts.

We are asking for a voluntary contribution of £3.00 per pupil to help cover the cost of the workshop and insurance. Although your contribution is entirely voluntary, you will appreciate that the visit will go ahead only if there are sufficient contributions to cover the costs. Activities such as this are beneficial because they give pupils experiences they may not otherwise have and this impacts positively on their learning and progress.

We will be walking to and from the museum so please make sure your child is wearing sensible shoes and clothing suitable for the weather that day. We are staying at the museum for lunch, therefore children will need a packed lunch, unless they receive free school meals.   We will be leaving after morning registration and will be back at school for 3.15 pm.

Please make sure you sign and return your reply slip by Friday 14th October 2016 to enable your child to take part.

Autumn Term Clubs

Dear Parents and Carers

We have arranged the following Club activities for the autumn term. If your child would like to attend please book a place(s) at the main office as soon as possible. Places are limited so they will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

Your child will need to be collected on time from the Clubs that take place outside of normal Academy hours as unfortunately we are not able to provide adult supervision once the club is finished. If you are unable to collect your child on time we will place your child in After School Club, which will be charged at the normal rate.

Football Teams

We are very excited to be starting our own football teams this year on Monday and Thursdays. If your child wishes to be a part of a football team they will need to be able to attend after school football matches against other teams after school. We will also, need help taking the players to the matches and you will need to pick up your child from the different venues that they will be playing at. So please take this into consideration if your child wishes to join the team.

There will be 16 places for each team and places are subject to the behaviour of your child. If their behaviour is not acceptable during the club or in school their place will be offered to another child.

 

 

Thank you

Cath Thomas
