Meeting for Parents
It was lovely to see so many of you at our meeting for parents on Thursday evening. Thank you to everyone who attended and were so supportive! More information about the meeting can be found on our new Three Hares Blog:
Three Hares News.
The PowerPoint presentation for the evening can be found here. A summary of the points covered will be sent out next week.
I'm starting to get enquiries about whether the children are able to give each other Christmas cards this year. I have taken advice on this from our Health and Safety lead and have learnt that, whilst we will be unable to have a central collection box for cards which will be delivered to all classes, children are still able to distribute cards to their friends within their own class bubbles.
We now have confirmation from Tempest that you can order pictures from either of the two photography sessions. Please order online wherever possible.
Key Stage 2 Hot Dinners
From Monday 30th November, we will be offering hot meals to Key Stage 2 pupils. You will receive an email when the menu is live and open for bookings on School Gateway.
On Friday, we trialled our first virtual assembly with several classes across the school. We had some problems with the audio connection, but it was lovely for the classes to all see each other. Hopefully, we will get the sound issues sorted out this week and the Friday celebration assembly can once again take place weekly. Well done to all of our certificate winners - many of whom won certificates for their acts of kindness during Anti-bullying week. Congratulations also to the Green Team who earned the most team points in the last two weeks.
As stated on our risk assessment (here), we are keeping the classrooms as well ventilated as possible with doors and windows open to reduce any spread of the virus. This does mean that the classrooms are colder than usual, please encourage your children to wear plenty of warm layers with their school uniforms.
