Weekly reminders for week beginning 16th October 2023

What a lovely week last week was - well done to you all and thank you for all the support you continue to show us. We are lucky to work with such a wonderful community.
It is hard to believe it is the last week of this half term already - where is the time going. It is certainly going to be a busy one!
Reception - Year 6
Please remember that the nurses are in on Monday for the first round of flu immunisations. You can give your consent if you have not done so already using this link - 
If you consent from now they may have to wait until the second date to have their immunisation.
Even if you do not wish for your child to have the vaccine, please complete the online form so that your wishes can be recorded.
Year 5
Year 5 have their Roman Day on Monday. We are looking forward to seeing some fantastic costumes.
Year 2 and Year 5
We look forward to welcoming our Year 2 (Tuesday - 9.30-10.30) 
and Year 5 (Wednesday - 9.10-10.30) parents for Learn with my Child. Please come for as little or as much as you can. As with the other year groups, regrettably we are unable to accommodate younger siblings at these events.
Year 1
Year 1 are off to Thorndon Country Park on Wednesday to look for the Gruffalo. We are sure they will have a great time. If you have not paid for the trip or handed the form in, please do so by Monday at the latest.
Year 3
Year 3 are off to Barleylands on Thursday. Please ensure arrival to school is prompt so that the coaches can leave on time. Please also ensure that if permission slips or money has not been sent in that these are in by Tuesday at the latest. Thank you in advance.
As per the information that came out last week our HEST team are looking forward to meeting you for Afternoon Tea on Tuesday at 2pm. Please come to the office to sign in.
School Nurse Drop In
Should you wish to speak to the School Nurse she will be available for you to 'drop in' on Tuesday 2.30pm - 3.30pm. Please call the Key Stage 2 Office to book a slot or just drop in.
Good luck to the Year 2 Football team who take part in a Borough competition on Wednesday.
Natasha Brind's Bright Day
On Thursday, we invite our whole community to come to school in bright colours. It would be lovely to see parents / carers getting involved as well. This is in memory of Natasha, our much loved member of staff who sadly and very unexpectedly passed away two years ago. If you would like to donate to Cancer Research, a charity dear to Natasha and her family, please do so but there is no obligation.
Due to their trip - Bright Day for Year 3 will be on Wednesday.
Is your child, or a child you know due to start Reception in September 2024
We are looking forward to welcoming prospective parents / carers into school on Thursday 19th October either at 10.00am or 4.00pm. Please call the school to book this or a tour later in the term. Places on each tour are limited. Please spread the word.
OCA (Our Clockhouse Association) Sweet Stall
OCA will be holding a Sweet Stall event after school on Thursday. Look out for the  stalls around the site on Thursday after school. Sweet bags are 50p. Please do support them.
