Monkton Park Newsletter 14th September 2018

Well done to the children in the Reception classes. They spent their first lunchtimes at the school this week and did really well. We'll see you all next week for your first full time week!

Parking & Road Safety

We are determined to ensure all children are as safe as possible when arriving at school. If driving to school can we please ask that cars are not parked either at the end of the school driveway or anywhere along it. Occasionally cars stop at the end of the driveway (on the yellow zigzags) to let children out and we politely ask for parents driving to school to locate a parking spot instead before letting children out. Parking is available around the estate or in the car parks on Brake Mead & the Olympiad.

Bike & Scooter Helmets

Please can we ask children who are cycling or scooting to school to wear a helmet.

Lottery Grant

We are delighted to announce that we have recently been awarded £10,000 from the lottery towards our outdoor classroom. The planning permission decision is due on 24th September so hopefully we are not too far away from getting it built.

Open Classrooms

We will again be running an open classroom session again this term (3rd October 3-4pm). For those who haven't come along to these sessions before it is simply a chance to sit in the classroom with your child , have a look through their books and talk about their learning with them.

Parent Forum

Parent Forum is an opportunity for Mr Rafferty to share future plans for the school, current developments and answer any questions from parents. There will be a parent forum on 8th October at 9am (hall) and 7pm (classroom tbc). If you have any specific questions that you would like answered during the session then please email the school office.

Pokemon Policy!

A common memory of primary school for many, including myself is swapping cards at break time in the playground. Whilst we don't want to stop things like this completely it can sometimes lead to distractions and can create the odd argument! Children can bring in Pokemon cards for one more week and then we would ask them not to be brought into school from 24th September please.

1960's Day (dressing up!)

On Monday 22nd October, Monkton Park School celebrates its 60th Birthday. We would like the children to come to school dressed in 1960s clothes for a whole school celebration day. More details will follow closer to the date!
