February 16th 2023
Dear parents, carers, families and friends,
The first half term of 2023 is coming to an end and I think everyone is ready for a rest! Children and staff have all worked hard and I'm sure everyone is looking forward to next week's half term - just to make sure it's really clear,
Next week is half term and school will be closed!
We'll be open again on Monday 27th February, ready to start another exciting half term together.
Supporting aid work in Turkey/Syria
The news from Turkey/Syria is desperately sad and we've been thinking of ways that we could raise money to support the aid work being done there. We'll be running a cake sale in the first few days of next half term, so watch out for news of that. Miss Anna in Blossom class is asking for donations of clothes to support aid work, so if you're having a tidy up over half term, please bring donations in during the first week back. Many thanks.
You'll have seen that Ofsted fully support our work to raise attendance at KRIII. That's because we all know that when children are in school, they learn and achieve more. We're having to work extra hard just to stop attendance from dropping and we'd like to see it improve enough to give your children even better life chances!
So... if your child has a sniffle, a runny nose, a small cough, a tummy ache, a bit of a headache... bring them to school! We'll look after them and keep an eye on them throughout the day.
Most children perk up and are fine throughout the day, but if we see that they're feeling poorly we'll get in touch to let you know.
World Book Day!
World Book Day is coming up after half term and we thought we'd give you a bit of notice about plans for the day. This year we would like all children to have the opportunity to dress up as a character from a book. PLEASE don't buy anything new for this - we know that the shopping is expensive enough already, and it's more fun to see the children and their families use their imagination with what they have already.
We would also like the children to bring in their favourite book from home. This will give them the opportunity to have some informal book talk/discussion when we mix up the classes and allow the children some time to talk to an older/younger child about their book.
It's going to be a great day
We'd like to wish you all a warm and happy half term break - remember, there's no school next week (and the half term break is just one week long!). We'll see you all again on Monday 27th February. Take care and stay safe -
Ms Harrison and the KRIII team
