The Christmas Market and film night was a great success and it was lovely to see so many parents and pupils. Thank you to everyone who helped in some way to ensure that the event ran smoothly.
Today has been a very exciting day for all at Hodnet as Santa was flown into our school in a RAF helicopter to deliver presents to every child. Huge thanks to Jason Lloyd for organising this, the FoH for helping with the cost of the gifts and a special thanks to Santa himself!
The Key Stage 1 production of Bethlehem’s Buzzing went brilliantly and the children were amazing, I hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did.
On Thursday, I look forward to seeing many of you at the church for our annual carol service. Children are expected to be collected from the church at 3pm, unless you have let the office know differently. Please note that there will be no clubs on Thursday.
Our Christmas party will take place on Friday 19th December after lunch and the children will be allowed to wear their own clothes all day. Please ensure that they have sensible shoes and coats for the playground. All donations of food for the party to be brought in on Friday morning please. Any food which is left will be taken to the local Food Bank.
Our chosen charity for the collections this term is The Harry Johnston Trust, which has been set up by the parents of a local boy who sadly lost his very short life earlier this year.
Clubs forms have been sent out and are beginning to come back. If you haven’t yet booked for the spring term, please send in as soon as possible.
All children should have brought home information about milk in school. For children who are entitled to Free School Meals, please return the slip to the office if you wish your child to receive milk. If you are not entitled, please register on the Cool Milk website, as per the leaflet.
Any questions can be answered by myself or Mrs O’Connor.
The Government have introduced strict new guidelines determining what we are allowed to give to the children throughout the school day. These guidelines are statutory and do need to be rigidly adhered to. As a result, the menu has been altered and you should have a copy sent home this week. The kitchen will no longer be allowed to offer something different if a child says they don’t like what is on offer. Please ensure that you check the menu and send in a packed lunch on the days where you know your child will not like the food on offer.
This has been taken out of our hands and will be checked on through the Food Standards Agency
