On Thursday 13th February, Year 2 have an exciting opportunity to work alongside Darcy Turner, who will be helping them to plan and construct an amazing sculpture made of newspaper.

In preparation for this, we are asking if you could very kindly donate any new or used newspapers as we need lots and lots to build our sculpture.

If you have any unwanted newspapers, please send them into school with your child.

As always, we appreciate your ongoing support.

Have a fantastic weekend!

Head Lice

Image result for nits




















Dear Parents and Carers,

There have recently been a couple of cases of head lice identified in school. While lice are nothing more than a nuisance, it is important that children are checked on a weekly basis so that any head lice can be dealt with quickly and before they can be allowed to spread. 

As there have been a couple of cases, we would ask you to check your child’s head as soon as possible. 

Please follow the simple routine below to ensure that you are doing all you can to keep head lice outbreaks to a minimum. 

CHECK 
Your child’s hair once a week.
Use a proper detection comb to trap head lice. 
If you find live lice, consult a pharmacist for treatment advice immediately. 
If head lice are spotted, take a close look at the hair of all the family. 

TREAT 
Please treat your child with a clinically proven treatment. 
Leave the treatment on for the recommended time for maximum effect. 
Repeat the treatment for a second time seven days after the original treatment to kill any eggs that may hatch after the first treatment. 
Check that all head lice have gone within two to three days of the final application of head lice treatment to complete the process. 
Continue to check for head lice on a regular, weekly basis. For further information on head lice please see your pharmacist or visit https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/head-lice-and-nits/

Thank you

Woodwork- off-cuts of wood needed!!





Woodwork- off-cuts of wood needed!!
Image result for off cuts of wood

Dear Parents and Carers,

Firstly, a HUGE thank you to all of you who have been collecting bottle lids, corks and donating nails, screws and buttons. They children have been creating some fantastic things with them. Keep them coming in!




We are lucky enough to have parents who donate off-cuts of wood to us. However, our lovely Year One children are very creative and we would like as much as we can get!

If anyone has job or knows someone who can get their hands on small off-cuts off wood (no longer than 30cm long), we would really appreciate it. 

If you think this is possible, please speak to Miss Chappel on the door in the morning or your child's teacher.
