Absence for week 10 is not the best we've seen this term with Class 5 dipping to below 94% and classes 1,2 and 4 not far behind! It is sad not being able to congratulate any class for having 100% attendance throughout the whole week unlike we have done for the past two weeks. Thank you to all parents who have been bringing their child to school on time and letting the office staff know if their child has any appointments in advance, also for calling to inform us that your child is absent due to illness.
For having 100% attendance in Autumn Term 2 we will be awarding children with Cinema Gift Cards to go and see films of their own choice with the family. Good luck and keep up the good attendance!
We have raised over £150 for Children in Need today. We have finished the week with singing, dancing, eating and having fun. Before the weekend starts though;
Thank you to the parents and pupils for this Sunday's Rememberance Service.
Thank you to the all of the teaching staff in school for organising lots of 1940's activties.
Thank you to veteran soldier Jack Watson for coming to school and meeting our children.
Thank you to Mrs Merrie for a wonderful window display.
Thanks you to the Alka Selzter Sisters for singing and dancing.
Remembrance Day 2015
November 11th 2015 marks the anniversary of the day World War One ended in 1918.
During the next half term New Silksworth Infant School will be remembering all of the people, who have served, and who currently serve our country in our wars. As many children feel differently we will explore how the children feel and allow them to share their thoughts. On Friday 13th November the children will enjoy a themed assembly and lunch - with a few surprises!
How can you help?
Holiday art project: To support our learning and pay our respects we would like to create a large whole school poppy display. During the holiday can you please create a poppy with your child - more than one if you are feeling particularly creative! It can be any size and you can use whatever material you wish e.g. collage, paint or paper mache. Hand your completed poppy to your teacher during the first week back and it will take its place in the school display!
Dressing up: To really get into the spirit we would love the children to come into school on Friday 13th November dressed in clothes from the 1940s i.e. shirts, waistcoats, flat caps, dresses, boots, headscarves – charity shops are ideal for this!
Memorabilia: If you or your family members have any World War memorabilia that you are happy to share with our children please let us know.
Donations: We also have a number of Remembrance Day items for sale in the school office and money raised supports The Royal British Legion.
We are hoping to make this a memorable day for the children.
Thank you in advance for your support.
