Dear parents, carers, families and friends,
The last week of term has started really well today - we had an assembly about the Christmas story (with a knitted nativity!), we've had a visit from the dentist and we've had lots of parties around the school, with some particularly vigorous party dancing in the hall this afternoon
School is still busy with lots of learning, of course, and we've welcomed Miss Roshni to Lavender Class today - she'll be working with the Lavender team and the children during the spring term.
Lots of you have already got to know Mr Sarwar, who is working with Mrs Khaliq across the school now, and Jasmine parents met Mr Richards last week - he'll be the new teacher in Jasmine Class from January. Mr Markar is leaving us at the end of this week for personal, family reasons - we wish him all the very best.
Meanwhile, Covid news continues - we've had quite a challenging few weeks with poorly members of staff, but have been able to remain open throughout. Many thanks to all of the adults in school for working so well together to make this possible. Thank you to all of you for maintaining social distancing as you wait to come in at the start and end of the day - and for keeping that distance when you speak to staff on the playground. It makes a big difference.
Covid figures mean that we're having to introduce Card Quarantine again this week. Please make sure your children bring in their cards for their friends by home time on Wednesday. This means that they can have a couple of days sitting in a box (the cards!) before we hand them out on the last day.
We hope that the school's Christmas singing video will be shared with everyone tomorrow afternoon or Wednesday morning - the children were brilliant during the filming and the singing was lovely!
The last day of term is Friday 17th December, at the end of this week.
The children come back into school on Wednesday 5th January 2022!
No doubt this won't be the last time we're in touch this week, but just in case... we wish you all the very merriest and healthiest of Christmases - please stay well, warm and happy
Ms Harrison and the KRIII team
