Something new for this year was The Highland Games, held in Reception and hosted by Miss Isla. The Clans all competed against each other in a series of competitive activities, with a big focus on fun! It was a great morning with lots of cheering from all the mums and dads who stayed to watch.
Coming up this week
On Friday we have the KS1 Bubble Run. We will start off the morning with a warm up before repeating the Fun Run that we first held last year. As its name might suggest, there is the added excitement of bubbles and lots of stickers to encourage children as they go around the course. Year 1 and 2 will have a slightly staggered start, but the event will begin at 8am. Mums and Dads are not allowed to watch...but they are very welcome to come and join in. I am assured it won’t be too strenuous.
Also on Friday...
Our vaccination programme will begin at around 1.00pm in the Drama studio. Many parents came along today to fill in the paperwork and take advantage of the pre-payment opportunity. If you were not able to come in today, payments will also be collected on Friday.
Please make the payments before you collect your children from class. Immediately after the vaccination, children should be taken home unless you are staying in school with them for an ECA. You are requested to take an Early Leaving Slip from the vaccination station to give to the guard.
Any High School students requesting vaccinations will be brought across from High School at 2.30pm.
IMPORTANT: You will need to take the receipt with you when you get in line for the vaccination. The colour of the receipt helps the medical team to select the appropriate dosage.
