News and Updates
Thank you to everyone who supported the book fair this week. We are looking forward to celebrating books again next week through a range of different activities. Children will be taking part in paired reading activities, they’ll have a teacher from another class read a story to them as well as enjoying lots of different books by one author in their English lessons. On Thursday 2nd March (World Book Day), children can come to school dressed as their favourite book character and we also look forward to welcoming parents into school on Thursday afternoon for our reading afternoon (see previous blog for the letter if it hasn’t come home to you!).
On Thursday 9th March, the PTA will be getting together in the Y2 Classroom at 3:30pm. Everyone is welcome!
On Friday 24th March the PTA will be hosting a disco. A letter will be coming home soon so keep your eyes peeled!
* Entrance is £2 per person (3s and under free of charge, all children must be accompanied by an adult)
* Sweets, Glo-Sticks and drinks available
* Parents and siblings all welcome
* Licensed bar (for over 18’s!)
Roll Of Honour
Isabel Dashwoood (year 1) gained a distinction in her preparatory ballet exam – well done!
Rosie Glasgow (year 3) was presented with her grade 4 and grade 3 National Gymnastics Proficiency Awards at Kingston Vale Gymnastics Club on Saturday 28th January and has now moved up to the 2 hour class! Well done Rosie!
We are always keen to hear about children's achievements outside of school; if you would like these sharing in the Crossdale News then please email the school office with the subject heading 'Roll of honour'.
Mr Cresswell and Miss Seedhouse
Please look out for this letter...
It should come home with your child on Tuesday 21st February. We look forward to seeing those of you who can make it on Thursday 2nd March.
It's another exciting week ahead at Crossdale...
Don't forget to bring your money next week for book fair. All children will receive a £1 book token next week and this can be spent in school. There is always a great variety of books to choose from and it is also a fantastic way to support Crossdale.
We look forward to seeing you there!
Tuesday: 3:30 - 4pm
Weds - Fri: 8:30 - 9:00am.
Let me also take this opportunity to remind you that World Book Day is the following week (Thursday 2nd March). As part of the celebration we are asking children to dress up as a favourite book character during this day (watch this space for photos of the children dressed up!). A letter will go out next week to invite you into school for our special reading event that is taking place during the afternoon of 2nd March where we hope you will join us to find out a bit more about how we teach children to read and the progression through school, as well as the sort of activities that can help develop reading skills.
As always, pop in if you have any queries.
