Newsletter for week ending 27th October 2023

Newsletter week ending 27.10.23


Dear parents, carers, families and friends,


This newsletter has some important safety information at the end, so please keep reading 😊


Staffing: You’ve probably noticed that Miss Greaves (Poppy class) and Mrs Turner (Daisy nursery class) are both now very pregnant indeed! They also both have plans to finish for their maternity leaves at the end of next week, so this is to let you know that Mrs Harper and Mrs Mann will be joining us on the KRIII team from the week beginning Monday 6th November. We will miss Miss Greaves and Mrs Turner while they’re away, and look forward to seeing lots of baby pictures soon! Mrs Harper will be visiting Poppy class next week, before she starts working with us, and Mrs Mann will also be coming in to say hello next week.


Thank you all for coming to parents’ meetings before half term. It was great to see so many of you, and thank you so much for such positive parent questionnaires – we had so many returned with really positive thoughts from you all.


Dance sessions and club – These started this week and the children (and staff!) LOVED them! It was a pleasure to hear and see the sessions running 😊


PANTO next week! – Very exciting – you’ll have had information through on Weduc/Reach More Parents.


CHILDREN IN NEED – Coming up on Friday 17th November – More news to come on this 😊


Reception Reading session – If your child is in Poppy or Iris class, you’d be very welcome to join us after school on Tuesday 30th October for a session on Reading.


HALLOWEEN – If your child would like to dress up on Tuesday 31st, that’s fine with us – but, as we say every year, if they’re dressed too scarily, we’ll ask them to change into PE kit for the rest of the day. We have lots of tiny people in school who don’t want to spend the day genuinely frightened and upset. It’s an opportunity for fun rather than fear!



The start of this week made us all think about road safety…

Since then, we’ve had some concerns about children being left in cars on their own while parents pick up or drop off. Please keep your children with you, so you can keep them safe.


Car seats -,your%20child's%20height%20or%20weight.

Your child should be in a car seat when they’re travelling – the Police will be visiting outside school regularly for a while to make sure that everyone is following the law and not putting their children at risk when they’re driving.


Hope everyone is well and happy – let us know if you have questions, comments or concerns, please. We like to work with you whenever we can.


Ms Harrison and the KRIII team
