Infant and Nursery-5.15-6.30 and Junior-6.45-8.30
We need 10 helpers for each disco. If you can help, please let the PTA know by email@example.com, or by leaving a message on the parents Facebook page. Please note only nursery parents will be able to stay with their children unless the parents are helping. Nursery and Infant children will enter and leave by the front door. Junior children will enter by the studio door and leave by the front door. The cost will be £3.50 to include refreshments.
Nursery Play Equipment
No child from our school should be playing on the nursery equipment at the end of the day, even if they have a sibling in the nursery.
Cross Country Competition
We shall be entering a cross country competition on Monday 27th November and this event is open to children in Years 4, 5 and 6. Trials will be held (during school hours), nearer the date to select out two fastest boys and girls for each year group. Should your child have an interest in running then please encourage them to come to running club on Friday mornings – 8.00am. Meet at the gazebo. Children do not need to attend the club to be selected for the team but practice will give them a better chance of selection.
Football After-School Club
Two regular helpers are needed to assist with the running of the Year 3/4/5/6 Friday after school football club. This will prevent having to limit places at a very well supported club.
The club has its first session on Friday 6th October, 3-30 /4-15pm. Please contact Mr. King if able to help.
For many years now we have been hosting trainee teachers from Bethel University, USA. We are looking for host families to accommodate these students from Thursday 4th to Thursday 27th January. For some of these days they will be travelling to other countries/places of their choice and for two of the weeks they will be attending various schools around Maidenhead. You will be paid £320 for their accommodation. My preference is for two young people to share so that they can travel together, especially if they are coming home late at night. If you are able to provide accommodation please let me know. They are delightful young people; host families in the past have always enjoyed having them.
Please do ask if anything in the newsletter is unclear.
