St Michael’s Annual Welly Walk

Friday 18th October

 This Friday (18th October) children will be completing our annual Welly Walk around the school grounds for an afternoon outside raising money for our school.  It’s a fun event with the whole school walking in their wellies around the school field.  After the walk the PTA will greet the children with a warming hot chocolate.  Children will finish school at the usual time.  Please ensure your child has a coat in school for the walk.

 Harvest Festival:  Parents are very welcome to come and share our Harvest Festival 11am on Friday 18th October, in St Michael’s Church.  Once again we are joining with the church to support Swindon Food Bank.  Children are invited to bring tins or dried products into school from Monday 14th October as their harvest gift. The Food Collective is currently particularly short of instant coffee (100g), long-life milk and fruit juice, sugar (500g), tinned fruit, vegetables, potatoes and biscuits.

School Uniform:  Please can you ensure ALL items of clothing are named, including P.E kits.  For any lost property please check the lost property box by the school gate in the morning.

Years 1 and 2: On Wednesday 16th October Years 1 and 2 will be visiting the Winchester Science Centre.

Please can children arrive at school by 8.30am.  We will return to school at 4.15pm.  Your child will be provided with a school packed lunch and just needs a water bottle on the day.  Children should wear full school uniform and only bring a coat if it is particularly cold or very wet.

Please ensure you have given consent for the trip on ParentPay.

Aldi Get Set to Eat Fresh:  Thank you for all the stickers we have received but we still need more! For more information visit https://getseteatfresh.co.uk/kitforschools or see the school notice board for more details.

SEND:  The October Wiltshire Short Breaks Bulletin is now available in the school entrance for people with children and young adults who have special education needs and/or disabilities.

Headlice:  We are having re-occuring cases of headlice across the school.  In an effort to combat this problem, can we please ask you to check your child’s hair, and treat all family members.

 Message from Lataca:  Our Parentmail launch has now gone live however we have had to close it down with immediate effect because of a glitch in the system. Please bear with us whilst we try to fix this.

Message from Aldbourne Nursing Home: Aldbourne Nursing Home are holding a Pumpkin Carving Competition for KS2.  Please deliver your pumpkins to the home by 5pm on Tuesday 29th October.  Join the residents for a trick or treat evening on Thursday October 31st between 6pm and 7.30pm.

 Message from Sue Rodd

 Please support A-Ha! (the Aldbourne Harvest appeal in aid of the Swindon Food Collective – https://www.swindonfoodcollective.org/).  The special appeal has been running for the past month or so, and will climax at the village Community Harvest Service in St Michael’s Church on the 20th October at 11am.  Representatives of many village organisations will bring their gifts of food and money, the Community Choir will sing for us, and there will be a speaker from the Food Collective.  Please join us for breakfast in Church from 10.15am.  Do come and join us!
