Weekly Newsletter – 6 November 2017

Dear Parents We hope you all had a lovely half-term break.  The children who were here for holiday club seemed to have a lot of fun. Thank you very much for doing our Autumn Sponsor sheet which is now being shared in classes and raised over £100! We also had some beautiful designs for cards and mugs back so they will be sent off so that you get these back ready for Christmas.  Again this is a great fundraiser for us so thank you for ordering these. School has been busy this week and everyone seems to have returned to classes very happily.  We had a fireworks display on Wednesday which your children may have talked about.  They sat beautifully throughout it and there were lots of sounds of delight as the fireworks crackled into life. We talked about safety with the children so hopefully they will be well prepared for any fireworks events over the next few days. A reminder that Parents Evening is on Wednesday 8th November at 7.30pm.  This is a chance to hear a talk on ‘Play’, followed by an informal chat with class staff.  Due to limited space in the Rainbow Room we have decided that this will now be just for Nursery parents and we will have a similar event for Nest parents next term. If anyone has anything they wish to discuss with class staff at another time then please speak to class teachers and arrange an appointment. A social evening event to meet other parents has been arranged for Wednesday 22nd November at 7.45pm at Queen Edith’s Pub on Wulfstan Way. ... read more

School Fund

Dear Parent’s   We aim to offer the best provision at Homerton for your children. Part of this depends on enriching children’s experiences with visits to the park, visits to the allotment, planting and cooking together, a Christmas party, an end of year celebratory trip out and special visitors coming in to Homerton.   Parents’ kindly make contributions to help support these extra curricular activities and we ask that you consider this for the term or year to help us plan for the trips. Of course the donations are voluntary but we do depend on them so if you are able to give generously it is greatly appreciated.   We suggest a contribution of £10 a half term, or approximately a £1.50 a week. If this amount is too hard for you we do totally understand and do not want to add to any families’ financial commitments, sometimes we are fortunate enough to have parents who are able to give a little more. Cash or cheques made out to Homerton Early Years Centre can be handed into the office. Alternatively you can pay by bank transfer 20-17-19 10711667 stating our child’s name as a reference.   Very many thanks; your donations go directly to the children for the things that make life even more fun at Homerton!   Best wishes  ... read more
