Dear Parents and children,
Have you ever wanted to gaze at the stars using a telescope and having on hand support from an astronomer? Well if this is something you are interested in, then this is the event for you! We are inviting parents and children along for the evening to join us in learning more about the wonders of space.
On Friday 10th January at 6.00 pm, we are holding a stargazing evening at Nether Heyford Playing Fields. I am told that this will be an ideal time for seeing the moon’s giant crater, Copernicus, and Jupiter. I am very lucky to have been offered support from several local astronomers who have offered to come along to our stargazing evening and bring along their telescopes.
We will be providing hot drinks and biscuits at a small charge in the club house so please bring along some money.
We are asking for a £1 donation per person to buy a small thank you to the astronomers that are giving up their time on this evening.
Please return the permission slip below before the Christmas holidays to let me know how many adults and children to cater for.

Dear Parents/ Carers,
Just a reminder that I will be holding an Everdon information evening next Thursday (5th December) at 5pm in Class 3. I will be joined by Alison Crowther, an Outdoor Learning Instructor at Everdon, who will be giving you an overview of the Everdon experience and answering any questions you may have. I will also be collecting medical information from you. Please note that children should not require anything new to go to Everdon. Waterproofs and rucksacks will be provided and children can also borrow wellies and sleeping bags if they do not have them. The only real essential is that the clothes they bring are warm and you don’t mind them getting muddy!
A BIG THANKYOU to all of you for helping to make the Philippines fundraiser a success. We raised approximately £290 and got some very tasty cakes!
A special well done to children in classes 5 and 6 who helped with the planning and running of the event, and even set up their own fundraising initiatives.
P.S. There were 500 sweeties in the jar, so Benjamin Ball was the lucky winner!
Many thanks Miss Thompson
Important dates for your diary: Reception and Year 1 will be performing their Christmas Play ‘Hey Ewe!’ on the following dates:
- Friday 6th December @ 9:30am – Dress Rehearsal to the rest of the school
- Monday 9th December @ 2pm – Parents & other family members welcome
- Tuesday 10th December @ 6pm (children will need to arrive at 5:30pm) – Parents & other family members welcome
I have already given Year 1 children their scripts – please start practising whenever possible at home! I will send costume lists in the near future but fortunately we already have most of it in school, thanks to Mrs Bristow’s vast collection! Please see me if you have any questions, Miss Pitman
The stage is now in the Hall in preparation for the Christmas Production by Reception and Year 1 at the start of December. Consequently there is less space available for sports clubs. We have therefore decided that fewer children will be able to participate in Ben’s Wednesday sports club at any one time between now and the end of the production to minimise risk of injury.
Please note the times that your child will have their sessions:
- Wednesday 20th Nov – Years 3, 4 & 5
- Wednesday 27th Nov – Year 6
- Wednesday 4th Dec – Years 3, 4 & 5
- Wednesday 11th Dec – Year 6
- Wednesday 18th Dec – No Sports Club
Please see me or Ben Jones if you have any further questions,
Please see the attached letter for the latest choir rehearsals and appearances.
