It is always a magical time of year as the weather gets colder and our thoughts turn to Christmas and presents and celebrations. I am delighted to inform you that Mr Miles has recently received a wonderful gift and is celebrating the arrival of his daughter. I am sure that you will join with us in congratulating him and his family.

You may also be aware that Mrs Martin is also expecting a baby early next year. Unfortunately, there have been some health complications and she has had to take an extended leave of absence to ensure that she protects both herself and the baby.

With both Year 1 classes joining together and moving down to the main Sunny Bank site from Monday, Miss England will be the children’s permanent class teacher and the class will be called Hedgehogs. Parents that have booked an appointment with Mrs Martin for

parents evening next week will be contacted by the school office to rearrange this with

Miss England instead.

Whilst in the festive spirit I would like to inform you of some of the key dates over the

next few weeks:

Friday 15th November – Children in Need (£1 donation – non-uniform day)

Friday 6th December – Winter Fair 2-4pm – all welcome

Tuesday 10th December – Year R Nativity performance at 2pm

Wednesday 11th December – KS1 Christingle at 2pm (in church)

Tuesday 17th December – KS2 Carol service at 10.30am (in church); Christmas Jumper & Christmas Dinner Day

Mr D.Waters
