Dear Parents,

We have collected 75 Christmas boxes and raised £240 for Children in Need. Thank you very much for helping the children to think beyond the local community.


We are pleased that our new playground will be ready to use next week. All the children in Years 1-6 will get a chance to try it out on Monday. After that it will be timetabled at playtime and lunchtime. It is important that children are not using the equipment before or after school as numbers need to be managed.

The Quiet Area will be moved to the front of the school by Silver Birch class. Benches and tables will be moved for children to enjoy playing cards, drawing/writing and reading books.

We will continue to use the field once a week but children will only be allowed on the field if they bring in wellies. Look out for more details in the coming weeks.

Elm Class Assembly

Parents of children in Elm class please remember that their class assembly begins at 2:40 on Tuesday.

Learning Hero

Peter from Maple class has been chosen as the school’s Learning Hero this week. Peter has adjusted really well to Wychwood and is not afraid to ask questions to clarify his thinking. Well done!

PTA News

If you're having a clear out before Christmas please save your children's old books for the book stall at the Xmas bazaar. We need books for every age but we're always particularly short of a good choice of books for Key Stage 2 readers. You can drop off donated books at the school office from Monday 27th November. Thank you!

Flu Vaccine

Pupils in Year’s Reception to Year 4 will be receiving their flu vaccination on Monday 20th November. Please be sure to let us know if you child has been unwell or if they have been on steroids or increased steroid dosage in the past two weeks.

Bake for Books

Just a reminder to our wonderful bakers to support the Chestnut class cake sale next Friday. Please can you bring your baked goodies to the school office on Friday morning and if any helpers are available for the sale itself that would be most appreciated.

Thank you for your continuing support.
