Term 1 update

The term is flying by and we seem to be as busy as ever!

Thank you to everyone who came to the curriculum evenings. The PowerPoints for each year group have now been uploaded to our homepage. If you were unable to attend the evenings and would like some more information, please do not hesitate to ask the class teachers or me. The reception and nursery evening will take place next Wednesday (9th) 7pm at Yardley.

As you are aware, we have recently held our school council elections. The children produced some amazing manifestos and enjoyed replicating the parliamentary process in their voting. Thank you to all who produced a manifesto and well done to those who were elected.

The newly formed council will shortly be writing to you about our next Charity event on October 18th. I mentioned this at the curriculum evening at the beginning of term so many of you are already aware of it. We are working closely with a local charity called Spencer Contact who support families in difficulties by providing and recycling basic furniture items. The idea is that, for one night (Friday 18th October), children are sponsored to sleep on the floor to raise money to support people in and around Northampton who do not have a bed for the night. The slogan ‘I have slept on the floor so other people do not have to’ is the basis of the sponsorship. A representative from the charity will visit on Monday to talk to all the children in an assembly; we will then issue the sponsorship forms.

We hope as many of you as possible are able to take part!
