Thank you for attending parents evening last week. We have received some very positive feedback and it was nice to hear about the progress that your children are making.
New School Website – www.springlaneprimary.com
Please make sure you are checking the website regularly to get updates on what is happening in school and to see what your child’s class have been learning about.
If you do not have internet access please speak to Mrs Greenfield or Miss Mayhew and we will arrange for you to use a school laptop to view the website.
Our text messaging is nearly ready to go live. If you change your phone number please let the school office know.
The weather is getting colder but the children are still having games lessons and after school clubs outside. They need to have their kit in school all week including a tracksuit and trainers. Please remember to name all school uniform and PE kit.
We have had a question from a parent and thought we would clarify the school uniform. The change to white polo shirts is happening slowly. The children can wear their green polo shirts until they grow out of them. Instead of replacing them with another green one you can then buy a white polo shirt.
Year 6 children are wearing a navy blue sweatshirt. This is because they are the oldest children in the school and we want them to be seen as role models across the school.
There are no other changes to the school uniform.
We have a case of head lice in school. Please check your child’s hair. Girls with long hair need to keep it tied fully back.
Upper KS2 Rugby Tournament/New Team Kit
Pupils from Year 5 and 6 visited the Duston School to take part in their first Tag Rugby tournament of the season. Well done to all of the players for trying their best.
We would also like to say a big thank you to NRS Recruitment Ltd who have sponsored our school’s new team sports kit – the pupils looked so smart. Have a look on the website to see pictures of the team.
Winter Weather Clothing
As the weather is becoming colder can you please ensure your child is sensibly dressed for outdoor play. They should have a warm coat, hat and gloves and sensible black footwear.
Homework – Reading Update
Thank you to those parents/carers who have been listening to their children read each week. There are lots of children who are now getting regular rewards for completing ten circles on their book marks!
