Headteacher Happy New Year 2019 Weekly bulletin

Happy New Year to all our families and friends!

We are looking forward to all the challenges of the new year and can't wait to get stuck in and continue our journey of learning at Moss Park Junior School! We are focusing on the values of Kindness, Friendship and Respect  this half term in assemblies, class discussions and in how we conduct ourselves around school. We will also be sharing our experiences of faith and family during the week of World Religion Day in January. In February we will be developing our cultural understanding of Chinese New Year and learning about keeping ourselves safe online in the week of Safer Internet Day. Some practical issues for this half term are:

  • PE kits need to be in everyday and it is important that this is suitable for winter - sweatshirts, jogging bottom or tracksuits as well as the usual white t shirt and shorts/leggings and pumps so that pupils are ready for indoor or outdoor PE
  • We are re-launching 1k a day this half term and all pupils need to have some trainers in school (please don't buy anything fancy or expensive as they may get dirty)
  • There has been some slippage in school shoe wearing. Our uniform policy is that these are worn 38 weeks a year. Please keep up the high standards. Trainers and Knee Boots are not suitable to be worn in school all day - please see our Uniform Policy on the website for more details. If the weather deteriorates, then pupils can come in boots/wellies and change into shoes on entry to school
  • Clubs start on 14th January 2019. The forms will go out on Monday 7th - unfortunately we had lots of staff illness in the last week of term so we were unable to finalise and send out - so please bear with us and we will text you by Friday. Remember it is first come, first served so please return the forms promptly!
  • Y4 swimming starts back on Wednesday 9th January - please make sure your child has their full swimming kit in school
  • We have got our pantomime, Aladdin and his Wonderful Lamp, to blow the January cobwebs away on Thursday 17th January. We are asking for a contribution of just £1 per child for this show to cover about half the cost - thank you in advance

See you in the playground from 8.40 am on Monday!

Kind regards,

Mrs Nunwick
