A message from Carly Ellis
Can you believe that we are now at the end of November? I took my children to see the Christmas lights being turned on in town at the weekend, which seemed really early!
School life seems to be maintaining its fast pace which will be notched up again with the preparation of the Nativity. Due to the constraints of COVID we will not be able to share this with you in person. We would hate for the Christmas period to be dampened with positive cases which may have been a result of sharing our Nativity in person. We hope you understand.
I hope you all had the opportunity to see all the Poppies that were created in Forest School and tied up on our front gates as a remembrance to commemorate the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and women in the two World Wars and later conflicts. They looked amazing.
We raised £162.81 for Children in Need - thank you all so much! The children always enjoy a good dress-up day and looked great in their outfits.
The children had a railway safety awareness assembly to demonstrate the dangers and to deliver key messages. This has come as a rise in incidents on railways recently.
Stag and Badger class had a visit from SWT Engagement Lead Angela Bolitho and Elaine Jones from ENGIE (the main contractor) to talk about the dangers of trespassing on a building site. This is currently really important with the regeneration project that is underway in North Taunton with both demolition and rebuilding that is going on. Angela has said that they were very impressed with how well behaved the children were, how well they listened, participated and took on board the important messages they were sharing about the dangers on building sites.
There is currently a lot of roadworks around Taunton too. We have just been informed that on 4th January (for a month) there will be a road closure turning into Wedlands from Cheddon Road.
We are currently putting together a preloved uniform list which we are hoping we can make ‘live’ very soon where you will be able to purchase good quality second hand logo uniform items for £3. There is a trade in option where, if you trade in a good quality logo item, you can purchase another for £2. We will let you know when this is up and running.
Please enjoy the day tomorrow as school is not open and we will see you all on Monday 29th November.
