Early Years Merit Assembly (Nursery and Reception) Friday 30th January at 2:30pm
Early Years Star: Harley Farbridge
As part of our work with the Great North Maths Hub, we have been offered free family tickets to see Kjartan Poskitt, author of the Murderous Maths series. The event will be held on Saturday 4th July 2pm-4pm at the Baltic Art Gallery. If you would like to apply for tickets please contact the Baltic Art Gallery directly or email Mrs Freeman
with details of numbers.
As you know, at Regent Farm we believe in outdoor play and endeavour to get outside whatever the weather.
If you would like to send in a pair of wellington boots to be kept at school (Early Years already have this in place) please do. The wellingtons can be kept in a bag on your child’s peg to ensure that they are not caught out in wet weather. Please label the wellies with your child’s name and class to keep them safe. Unfortunately over the last few days, many children have had to suffer with soggy feet!
Year 1 Bake Sale
Our Bake Sale this month will take place on Friday 30th January at 3.15pm. Hopefully this will take place outside the main doors if the weather is fine. If the weather is wet or windy the sale will take place in the foyer, outside of the small hall. Year 1 children are asked to bring in their baked (or bought) goodies on Friday morning ready for the sale.
Please do not bring dogs onto the school grounds or tie them up at the school gates
We have recently received comments from parents who are concerned that many are finding the presence of dogs on the school grounds stressful and even dangerous, particularly for younger children. We are concerned that even well-behaved dogs can behave unpredictably when placed in busy, noisy environments. Children can also behave in an unpredictable fashion when in the presence of dogs and this can potentially lead to a child being hurt. As you can imagine, we also have health and safety concerns about dog fouling. Therefore, please do not bring dogs into the school grounds on any occasion.
Assistance dogs are exempt.
Goodbye to Mrs. Coe
Mrs. Coe, our Home/School Coordinator, is leaving us next week. Her final working day will be Wednesday 28th January. The staff, governors and children of Regent Farm wish her well for the future.
