Macmillan Coffee Morning
Don’t forget to join us in the hall at 8:45 next Friday, September 30th for coffee, tea and delicious cakes. Please bring some change to make a contribution to raise much needed funds to a cause close to our hearts.
Children Absent from School
It’s really important that children attend school every day. If your child is really unwell and cannot come to school, please contact us using the sickness line (07960 356783) - you can leave a voice message or send a text.
Support for families - My Family Coach
My Family Coach has been built by leading behaviour specialists from within the education sector, to support parents and carers with every parenting challenge they may face. Online content ranges from quick reads through to live classes and covers the everyday challenges that parents encounter. The content is free for families of our school and can be accessed here at www.myfamilycoach.com/
Families wishing to sign their child up to Breakfast Club can do so by calling the office. Reception children are able to join from October half term, however if you would like your child to start earlier than this, please talk to Ms Gray so that your individual circumstances can be considered.
SEN Peer Parenting Offer
Newham have organised some parenting courses and coffee mornings to support parents with children who have Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. The information is here for you to access.
Earlier this week, families will have received information about our KS2 year-long clubs. We still have some availability in most of the clubs (only basketball and guitar are completely full) so please do complete the Google Form if you are interested in applying for a place for your child. The form will close on Monday morning so be quick with those applications!
Free Badminton for 10-14 year olds!
Active Newham are offering badminton lessons on Friday afternoons at Newham Leisure Centre. These free lessons are for children aged between ten and 14. You can find out more, including how to sign up, here.
Fun at the Library!
Newham libraries are running a fun-filled weekend of events and activities from 30th September - 1st October. See below for further details:
From theatre performances to crafting and gardening, there's something for everyone at Newham Libraries Fun Palaces weekend. On Friday 30 September and Saturday 1 October, all of our libraries will become dedicated spaces where you can explore a range of family-friendly activities and events. Explore Indian Classical Dance at Manor Park library, a drumming workshop with Iroko at Beckton Globe or Badge Making with PiNs the artist in Canning Town. Come and join the fun!
You can sign up to the free events via this website.
Dressing for the Weather
The rain showers this morning were a reminder that children need to be wearing clothing and coats that are suitable for the weather. Children will often still play outside if the rain is just a drizzle and so it’s really important they have waterproof jackets and shoes when they come to school.
All children need to bring a water bottle into school. It can be one from home or you can buy the Sheringham bottles at the office for £2.00.
Do you live near Warrior Square or Little Ilford Park and want to earn £25?
If so, Newham Council invites you to a one-on-one interview to share your experience of living in Little Ilford as part of their London Great Estates project!
- What is great about your neighbourhood and community?
- What are the challenges you face?
What you tell them will be used to make changes to better support residents in the neighbourhood to be healthy, happy and thrive. You can be interviewed in-person in Little Ilford, by phone, or online and can choose a time that works for you. Interviews will last approx one hour. You will receive payment worth £25 in return.
To get involved please complete this sign-up form: forms.gle/bE6UMfSVsjCuU34s6
Hearing and Vision Checks
Just a reminder that Year 1 children will be having their hearing and vision checks in school next week.
