Newsletter 9 September 2016

Dear Parents,

Welcome back to a new academic year and to all our new starters in not only Foundation Stage but throughout the school. We hope you all settle in very quickly.

 

 Woodcote Summer Festival – this weekend sees the village host the ever popular Summer Festival. Saturday 10th Sept  from 12pm – 5pm in the Village Hall. There will be a variety of stalls, activities and entertainment to keep everyone busy. Children from Woodcote Primary School Choir (year 2 – year 6) will be singing so please meet Mrs Hunt at the back of the village hall by the staging at 12 noon. Please wear a school sweatshirt over the top of your clothes for the performance.

 

Parent/Teacher evening –We would like to invite you to meet your child’s teacher and see what is coming up this year.  We will be holding two half hour sessions on Thursday 15th of September:  at 3.30pm and at 6.30pm.  Both meetings will be informal and exactly the same so there is no need to attend both.  Please come along to the session that you find the easiest to attend.  Children are welcome to attend with you.  For those that cannot make it, a class newsletter will be distributed on the Friday.  Could you please let the office know if you would like to attend the later event at 6.30pm so we have an idea of numbers?

 

Parent’s Evenings – these will be held on Tuesday October 18th (3.30- 7.00) and Thursday October 20th (3.30 – 6.00).  Please put these dates in your diary.  Each class will have appointments on both evenings and appointment sheets will be provided nearer the time.

 

Tempest Photography –Tempest will be coming into school on Tuesday 20th September during the morning. Please ensure children have the correct uniform for their photographs (white polo shirt, school sweatshirt or cardigan, plain hair bands). Parents with younger siblings are welcome to arrive in the school hall early, from 8.30am, to have group photos done.
