“EVERY DAY MATTERS”

This week every family will have received an Every Day Matters leaflet, which has been produced by the Isle of Wight Council.  This useful guide goes through common illnesses, how to treat them and whether children should be kept off school or not.

FOOTBALL “FRIENDLY” MATCH

Well done to all our football players in Years 5 and 6 who took part in a “friendly” football match against Barton Primary School last Friday.  Everyone played really well.  The final score was  4-2 to Barton.  More league and cup matches are taking place very shortly.

 

UKSA

During the half term holidays UKSA are offering various sailing camps.  There are residential courses offering multi-activity sessions and dinghy courses for the novice, improver or advanced sailor!  For full details visit their website at www.uksa.org.

 

NAIL VARNISH

Can we please respectfully remind you that nail varnish is NOT allowed to be worn at school.  Please ensure that it is removed before children come to school.  If it is not, then school will remove it.  Thank you.

 

HOME-SCHOOL AGREEMENT

This week every child will have brought home two home-school agreements.  One yellow copy for you to read with your child.  This should then be signed by yourself and your child and returned to school via the “Green Box”.  The white copy is for you to keep for your reference.

 

ISLE OF WIGHT PERCUSSION DAY

On Monday 27th October 2014, during half term, the Isle of Wight Percussion Day is being organised in memory of Jack Richards, who was a percussion teacher for the Isle of Wight Music Service for many years.  The event takes place at Ryde School and will include master classes with world class orchestral players, workshops including drums and performances showcasing a range of percussion instruments.  For full details contact the organiser Helen Parry on 295685 or email helenspa@hotmail.com.

 

WILD WEST COOKOUT!

Well done to everyone who dressed up as a Cowboy or Cowgirl on Thursday—you all looked great.  There will be more “dress-up” days to raise  funds for charity and school later in the year.

 

THINGS TO DO BEFORE YOU ARE 11¾ …..

Plant an oak tree!  The best time to find a good acorn is when the tree starts to drop them naturally.  The acorn is ripe when it is plump and the cap comes off easily.  Acorns need cold to germinate, so plant them in a big pot in the shade, one and a half times their width.  Keep the pot moist.  Plant the seedling where you want it to grow as soon as the first leaves open fully.
