Happy New Year!

Welcome back to the new term. The Newsletter for January is now available on the website and has been emailed out, as has the clubs information. You will see we have a new Gymnastics Club on a Monday after school, so please sign up soon as places are filling up fast!

EYFS applications for September need to be completed by the end of next week, so please don’t forget! This should be done online using the Bristol City Council website, or come and ask us for help.

Merry Christmas

We hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. The new term begins on January 2nd (there’s no INSET day or anything!). All the information about dates and the different projects for the children can be found on the yeargroup pages- if you are at a loose end over the holidays then why not look at the Spring term projects and see what you can find out 🙂

Carols

Our KS2 Carols will take place on Thursday (14th) on the decking to the front of the school. Please come along if you can- if it’s cold it will go ahead so bring something warm! Mulled wine will be served.

There are plenty of other events- please see separate flyer for details.

School breaks up on 15th December.

Christmas Fair

We know many of you have booked tickets already, but don’t forget to support the school tomorrow at the Christmas Fair from midday. The Friends of School committee has worked extremely hard yet again, and thanks to a flurry of volunteers coming forward this week we know there will be plenty to do and buy.

CHRISTMAS CARDS!

We are very excited to be able to offer Christmas cards and other items with designs from our children at WTL. In the next fortnight you will receive further details, with the design by YOUR child- with options for cards, wrapping paper etc.  We have not undertaken this type of project for a few years and hope you like the designs.  www.apfs.org.uk

SUPER SCIENCE

We have registered for the Bristol Evening Post ‘Super Science’ competition beginning mid November. Look out for details in the next Newsletter, but the more tokens you can help to collect, the bigger the chance of us getting some funds to spend on Science for the children. An opportunity not to be missed.

HALF TERM

Just a reminder that we break up on Wednesday 18th October and return on Monday 30th October. A holiday club is available, please see the details elsewhere on the website (under ‘parents’) for further information.

BLACK HISTORY MONTH

We are celebrating Black History Month in October. The children have been learning about Ruby Nell Bridges, the first black child to attend a ‘white’ school in New Orleans as well as other figures in black history such as Martin Luther King Jnr.  We hope the children talk to you at home about what they learn in school, but if not you can start a conversation and see what they remember!

PARENT’S EVENING

We have our Autumn parent’s evenings in a few weeks time (Oct 10th & 11th). You will be able to book using your logins from midday on Friday 29th September. For those new to the system, your teacher will let you know your details.

You only need one login, no matter how many children you have attending the school.
