Respect Perseverance Trust
12th March 2018
Hopefully the weather will soon become warmer and we will be able to enjoy the outside space even more. Until that time please make sure your child has appropriate clothing in school.
Despite the very cold weather and some snow, many children came to school on Thursday dressed as their favourite book character. We had everyone from several Harry Potter’s to Where’s Wally to a suffragette. Staff also joined in the fun and could be seen representing many of the characters from Harry Potter. The children were involved in book related activities all morning and a display of their work and some photos can be seen in the entrance hall.
The Friends of St James have a few events coming up in the next few weeks.
- Firstly next Friday 16th March is Bags to School. You should have received a bag that you can fill with unwanted clothes. The more bags we receive the more money we can make for school.
- Quiz night – Friday 16th March. Do get a team together and join us on the night.
- Finally the Easter Egg Raffle is coming up on Thursday 19th March. The day before is out of uniform in exchange for an Easter Egg with tickets being on sale all the last week of term.
Thank you to everyone who has been into school this week for a Parent Teacher Interview. It is lovely to take this opportunity to share with you your child’s successes. If you have not managed to speak to your child’s teacher please make an appointment via the office.
If your child asks requests a jacket potato for lunch they will be expected to have either salad or vegetables with it. They will be expected to try everything on their plate before they are allowed to have a pudding. We have had an increased number of children requesting jacket potatoes and not eating them but wanting to fill up in dessert. We hope you will support us in encouraging children to have a healthy balanced diet at lunchtimes
