Well done to all the children who have settled back into school so well this week and made a great start. They all look very smart in their uniform so a big thank you to parents for supporting this.
The Daily Mile
We have introduced the daily mile to the children today and will be starting this with all the children in school on Monday. The information about this new initiative was on the letter to parents that went out earlier this week. It is not competitive and all we ask is that everyone has a go and does as much as they are able to in the time allowed.
Please can we ask that from Monday all children bring a water bottle and have a coat in school each day. In addition, Years 1 to 6 may change into trainers to do their daily mile if they wish.
Reading at home.
We hope you like our new reading record books that have come home this week. Many thanks to those parents and children who have made a good start to reading at home and completing their reading record books each day. Please ensure that these books are in school every day.
Friends of Canon Popham
We would love to see as many people as possible at our AGM next Thursday – 14th September at 6:30pm in the school hall.
Please come and contribute your ideas or offer your help with the fund raising that we do. Last year the PTA paid for additional reading materials for every class and also the safety flooring in the Foundation outdoor area.
Macmillan Cake Sale
There will be a cake sale on the school playground after school on Friday 29th September in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. Look out for further information next week.
