Welcome Back

I hope you have all had a very enjoyable Christmas break with family and friends. While the dark cold days of January can make us all feel a little less like getting up in the morning there are plenty of exciting things planned at Bringhurst to keep the children happy. The teachers have selected new curriculum topics for the term so make sure you ask your child about their learning and support them with the suggested homework tasks.

Early this term every child will decide on new targets to work on with their class teacher. These will be sent home so that you can help your child achieve them. You should also receive further information letters from your child’s teacher about the curriculum for this term.

As the weather gets colder it is essential that children bring suitable clothing to keep them warm at playtimes. A change of footwear will make sure that we help protect our new carpets!  We will be going out for PE as much as possible so please make sure your child has a tracksuit, hat and gloves kept at school.

While we wait for the next phase of building work to begin later in the year I would like to ask for volunteers to help relocate the library in the old school house staffroom. Please let the office know if you have some time available to help and we will get back to you with times.

A happy and successful 2016 to you all,


Angela Watson

Head teacher
