Mailing for 9th September 2022
What a busy week! The new Year R children started school this week with half day visits and they have been having fun learning new routines and making new friends. They are settling into their new classes and getting to know their new class teachers and classroom assistants.
The children across Year 1 and 2 are also settling well into their new classes and finding their way about. Our focus for this week has been on the children’s wellbeing and re-establishing friendships.
This morning the whole school came together in an assembly to think about the work the Queen has done for our country over the past 70 years. The children also looked at a Powerpoint presentation to understand what will happen over the next 10 days. This was all child friendly. At the end of the assembly, a candle was lit and a 2 minute silence was held. The children were amazing and very respectful!!!!
It has been lovely to welcome the Year 1 children back to school this week. We have been hearing all about their summer holidays and getting to know them. The children have been learning new routines and have contributed to classroom rules using their dojo monsters to help them. They are all looking forward to earning lots of dojo points for making the right choices. This week the children have been showing the Year 1 teachers what they know already and have written about their summer holidays- we can’t wait to see what else they can do!
Year 2 have had a great first week back and have really enjoyed getting to know the children. This week the children have been getting used to their new classrooms and expectations. The children have enjoyed sharing their collages that they made at home and have been very excited to earn 5 dojos for their efforts. We have also been busy making ‘All About Me’ booklets for our display boards and have thought about what our aspirations are for Year 2. We did some marbling to make beautiful leaves for our aspirations tree and wrote our aspiration on them. At the end of the year we will see if we have achieved our goal.
The Year 2 team apologise but information about the Living Rainforest trip on 28th September has been delayed. A further update will come next week.
Please remember that we are a nut and shellfish free school due to allergies. Please do not include anything into your child’s lunchbox that contains these ingredients included chocolate spread/peanut butter. Many thanks for your understanding.
Have a lovely weekend.

General News and Information:
If your child does not eat certain foods due to religion reasons or personal preference, please ensure they know what lunch option they are choosing every day before they come in to book it on the whiteboard. There have been a few occasions when children have inadvertently selected the wrong meal choice. Children with allergies are identified by wearing a different coloured wrist band and have their meals cooked according to their special menu.
HC3S have a parent portal where they can register children needing special allergy school dinner menus directly. This will give parents more control and direct contact with the catering team. You will then need to make an application online for your child to have a special menu and the school will be notified automatically. If you need to apply for a special menu, please see the information by clicking on: https://specialdiets.hants.gov.uk/
If your child has a change or existing or new medical condition, please inform us by completing the form which is now available on our website: New or Change to Existing Medical Condition Form
We continue to put our children, their parents and our staff at the centre of any decision making to ensure that we keep everyone as safe as we can at this continued tricky time. If you have any feedback as to how this week has been, please let us know via firstname.lastname@example.org
