Harvest Festival October 2017


Dear Parents and Carers


As part of our Harvest Festival celebrations we have chosen to support the Aylesbury Vineyard Storehouse again this year by bringing in food donations.


Please can you send in non-perishable food items (tins and packets etc.) with your child on Monday 9th October. The items will then be collected by Aylesbury Vineyard and made into food parcels and distributed to those in need in Aylesbury.


This year the children will be taking part in Harvest celebrations. The children will prepare Harvest artwork, songs or poems and perform and share these with the other Early Years classes.


We would like to invite parents in from Reception, Nursery and Pre-School to allow the children showcase their work.


The Harvest Festival will be held on Thursday 5th October at 11:30 am and again at 3:00 pm in the Reception class main room at the Pre-School site. As there will be limited space please only attend one of the time slots.


Thank you for your continued cooperation and support.


Yours sincerely


Betony Harbottle

Changes for Reception Children Attending Breakfast Club – Monday 18 September 2017


Dear Parents and Carers


Can I first thank you for your patience and understanding with all the changes that have occurred as a result of the building work. I know it will all be worth it when we have our new improved premises. However I am writing to inform you of another change that will affect some parents.


As you know Reception children are currently attending Breakfast Club in the main school and then walking over to the Holman Street site. However due to the increase in the number of Reception children that are attending Breakfast Club this year we are going to set up a Breakfast Club for them at the Holman Street site. This will completely mirror everything that they do in the Breakfast Club in the main school. Reception Breakfast Club will begin on Monday 18 September.


Breakfast Club will begin at 7:45 am and children will be admitted until 8:45 am. After 8:45 am children will not be admitted until school opens at 9:00 am. Children will access Breakfast Club through the Nursery entrance.


We anticipate when all the building work is complete Reception children will return to the main school and re-join the main Breakfast Club.


If you have any concerns about this please do not hesitate to let me know.


Yours sincerely
