Newsletter 2nd December

Tempting as it is to cover this Newsletter in pictures of cuddly reindeer and sparkling baubles I am going to restrain myself. December is upon us and the Oxfordshire countryside has looked beautiful over the last few days. Here is the latest news and updates for you all.


Foundation Nativity Thursday 8th December

The children have been rehearsing really hard and are looking forward to performing their Nativity play. It starts at 2 p.m. and will finish at around 2.30 p.m.


KS1 Nativity – Born in a Barn

Tuesday 6th December at 2 p.m. and Wednesday 7th at 6.30 p.m. For the 6.30 p.m. performance please make sure your child is in school by 6.00 p.m.


Memo Notes to Parents

A couple of things to point out to you all:

  • It can get a bit busy at the reception area in the morning and I don’t want to hold you all up. If you are simply dropping off a permission slip or similar could you please just post it through the letter box on the outside wall. This will ease congestion in the morning.
  • This week we have had a couple of children who have not had lunch ordered for them. Could you please make sure that you are filling in your child or children’s lunch order correctly. The lunch time assistants do a great job and it will ease things for them if you can make sure your orders are placed accurately. Thank you


KS2 Carol Concert
The KS2 carol concert will be held in the school hall on Tuesday December 13th. You are welcome to come to the hall from 6.30 p.m. for a 7 p.m. start, and the concert will last for an hour. I am reliably informed that this concert was a huge success last year so arrive in good time because it will be standing room only.


Front Garden

The newly refurbished front garden is looking great. It will be lovely to see the story chair being used as soon as the leaves are on the trees again. Huge thanks to FOWPS for their generosity which enabled this refurbishment.


Slap Cheek

As some of you are aware we have had a few cases of slap cheek in the school. If you are at all concerned about this we recommend that you look it up on the NHS website and it will give you all the information you need to know.


Friday December 16th

Please note that school will finish at 1 p.m. on the last day of term.


A Note from St Leonard’s Church

Messy Church will take place on Sunday 4th December from 2.30 p.m. until 4.30 p.m. in Woodcote Village Hall. Admission is free and the activities will be followed by tea and cakes. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
