Notices and Reminders
Black History Day
On Monday every class learned about a person of colour who has changed the world or done something amazing. It was a day of thoughtful contributions from the children. They did some lovely work, which will soon be displayed around the school. Look out for pictures of these on the website after half term.
Our Eco-council met today and we talked about the role of an eco-warrior. The children really impressed me with their knowledge of environmental issues and they took back to their classrooms a mini-job description, outlining what they can do to help us be an even greener school.
Lots of parents have been asking whether we will be doing a nativity show this year. I can reassure you that plans are afoot for a 'Christmas Assembly' in both Nursery and Reception. These shows will be shared with parents electronically and we will release the dates soon after half term. We are also making planning to share and celebrate the achievements of our Key Stage 1 children in a variety of electronic ways. More information on these virtual events will follow in early November.
After half term we will be offering the children a full menu including two hot meals and one cold option. These will be served in the classrooms in re-usable bento boxes. The new menu for the next half term and the spring term can be accessed here.
Key Stage 1 Target Games Wednesday 4 November
Coaches from the Dacorum Schools Sports Network (DSSN) are coming into school to run Target Games for children in Year 1 and Year 2 on the first Wednesday back after half term. These will be done in separate bubbles, with all the appropriate Covid-secure measures in place. Please ensure your child wears PE kit on that day.
Last week we told you that the schools nursing team would be returning to school on 23 November to immunise those children they didn't reach on 15 October. They have now given us an earlier date of 6 November, with 23 November being kept as a back-up.
