A moment of reflection


Dear Parents / Carers

Welcome back after the half term. I hope you all enjoyed pumpkin picking, running in leaves and your extra hour in bed!

This term is the busy one with lots of fun things planned, trips, fundraising, crafting, singing and getting into the festive season.

Tonight is the FOSS school disco and we hope you have all got your glad rags ready and your tickets returned to the office with all your contact information on.

These events are always very popular and as a whole, the children here at Sholden school are extremely well behaved. But sugar filled dancing can lead to over excitement, so we would just like to ask that you remind your children to be on their best behaviour and practise their school values of love and kindness to each other.

There will be snacks available, drinks and glitter tattoos so please only send your child with some pennies.

Last day of school

*These dates are subject to change.

Following on from this weeks lessons and crafts, we will be taking the children church on Monday to show our  respects to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. It is important to educate and encourage our young children to remember the events of the past and the lessons that were learnt from them. These children are our future and we need them to respect the past, their elders and lessons learnt.

This service will be for school children only and we encourage you to find a local service on Sunday to show your respects.

We hope you liked the children's crafts to represent their respect.

Parents Evening

Monday and Tuesday we welcome parents into school for parents evening. The system is still open to take bookings until Sunday.

As always we appreciate your patience during these evenings as we know these appointments are not an exact science and delays happen.

Thursday sees Kingfishers go on their class trip to Wildwood. Make sure they wrap up warm and have sturdy footwear on as this weather is so changeable at the moment. I'm sure the children will have an amazing day.

On Friday it's Children In Need! So we ask that you donate a £1 and in exchange your child/ children can come in wearing their own clothes. We encourage spots and crazy hair doos, but the choice is yours!

Enjoy your weekend whatever your plans and we look forward to seeing you all next week.


Kind regards

Justine Brown

Interim Executive Head Teacher
