Links News- 7th October 2022
Dear Links families,
I hope you’ve had a lovely week.
This week was a bumper week for values awards. Well done to the following children who have done a great job of showing the Links Values:
- Anhelina in 6G
- Zhixin in 6G
- Elezay in 6G
- Enzo in 3P
- Maria in Rainbow Class
Today we welcomed Rev. Belemo from St. Paul’s Church to assembly. She spoke to the children about the meaning of harvest. Thank you so much for all of the donations that have been sent in so far; we have extended the collection period to Monday, so if you would like to make a donation, please bring it to the school office.
Next Friday, 14th October, the children may come to school in their own clothes. If you are able to, we welcome donations of up to £1 which will go to the PTA to fund new resources for the children to use.
If you would like to book a place for breakfast or after school club, please use this form. Don’t forget that all booked places will be charged for.
October Playscheme will be running from Monday 24th October to Thursday 27th October. Please note there is no playscheme on Friday 28th October. Playscheme is available to all Links children from Reception to Year 6 and for Nursery children who regularly attend breakfast or after school club. If you would like to book a space please complete this form.
The booking form will close when the places have been filled. Places will be strictly limited for this playscheme. If you have not booked in advance you will not be able to attend so if you want to book a place please do not wait.
All booked places will be charged for.
All About Us
Hello! I am Miss Eades-Jones and this is my second year at Links. I love teaching and this is my 6th year now. Before I taught, I lived in Australia for a little while. I enjoy travelling and going to new and exciting places at the weekend. Reading, going to concerts and going on long walks are also some of my favourite things to do when I’m not at school.
We have lots of exciting educational visits coming up this term and we are always looking for parent volunteers to help out. Lots of you have already completed the form to let us know when you might be available to help out, but if you haven’t and may be able to help, please complete this form.
Earlier this week, Mrs. Anderson held a phonics workshop for Reception parents. I know that they all found it useful to help them support their children with their phonics learning. Here is the link to the presentation. Watch this space for more parent workshops coming soon.
PTA Sponsored Read
You may remember that last year the PTA held a sponsored read which raised around £1,000 for us to spend on books to add to our class libraries. The books have now arrived in school and are being distributed to the classrooms. Thank you so much to everyone who took part and to the PTA for organising this. Reading is so important and these beautiful new books will really help the children to pursue a love of reading.
Have a great weekend.
Lee and the Links Team
