From the Head of Juniors

Dear Parents,

I would like to wish you all a happy, healthy and well-deserved half-term break. It has been a positive start back to this academic year and I would like to extend my thanks to all of our community, children, parents and staff who have worked hard to make this happen.

I am sure that we will return to new challenges and we will need continued efforts to keep our school safe and running as smoothly as possible.

As we return there will be a Hallowe’en theme in school. The PRC have kindly offered to decorate the school during the holiday and teachers will be using the theme in some of the lessons in their classrooms. The week will culminate in a dressing-up day on Friday 6th November and a scary virtual assembly by Year 6. They will also receive a Hallowe’en themed goody bag courtesy of the PRC.

In addition to the event in school, we would also like to ask the children to get involved over the half-term holiday. They can do this in two ways. Firstly, by making a Hallowe’en decoration for them to bring in on Monday 2nd November to decorate their own classrooms. This can be a simple coloured pumpkin or Hallowe’en picture or a more elaborate 3-D decoration if your child wishes. The second way is to enter our virtual Pumpkin Carving Competition. This year we ask your children to carve their pumpkins at home and send in a photo of themselves with their creation to their class teacher. We will then display the photos in the Junior School foyer and award prizes at the end of the week. As usual, please do supervise your child carefully whilst carving their pumpkins!

Children should return to school in their winter uniform following the holiday.

The first Parent-Teacher meeting yesterday went relatively smoothly. The second session will take place on Thursday 5th November. If you have not yet signed up please do so. Links for your meetings will be sent out to your child’s school gmail as we return.

Best wishes

Judi Korakaki
